Plantation Trinidad 97/01/03 Muscat Finish Rum
This unusual three-vintage vatted Trinidad Rum from Plantation was blended in barrel from casks that were distilled in 1997, 2001, and 2003. Each aged until 2013 in ex-bourbon barrels before being married together in casks that were previously used to age Muscat wine, until 2016, reaching a minimum age of 13 years.
An especially richly flavored rum for Trinidad, though it certainly shares the typical flavors of Angostura, especially stone fruit and light spice. On the nose, there is lovely bakery spices, with wisps of smoke as well. The palate opens with honey, dark chocolate, plum, and banana-vanilla creme pie. The finish is sweet black tea with honey. Bottled at 43.5% abv.
