Plantation Peru 2006 Limited Edition 14 Year Rum
This exceptional, rich and elegant Peruvian rum is the result of the collaboration between Alexandre Gabriel, Master Blender at Plantation Rum, and Jorge Luis Rodriguez Parajes, Master Blender at the Cartavio rum distillery. It is a blend of rums resulting of three-day fermentations distilled in multi-column and John Dore-type pot stills. Distilled in 2006, this rum was first matured for eleven years in 200-liter ex-bourbon casks in the cellars of the Peruvian distillery, where the angels’ share is regulated thanks to technical control of ventilation and humidity. The rum then made a long sea voyage to France, where it was further aged for three years in Javrezac, in the Southwest of France, in 400-liter French oak barrels for that famous Plantation touch. It was bottled at 47.9% abv, with 8 grams of added sugar per liter, or "dosage".
The nose opens with dark chocolate, nuts, and vanilla notes with some woody highlights, followed by citrus and tangy notes of passion fruit. The palate is smooth, with chocolate notes followed by the freshness of exotic fruit. Finally, there is a long finish with hints of dried fruit, cinnamon and nuts.
