Plantation Trinidad 2009 Limited Edition 12 Year Rum
This vintage rum from Trinidad Distillers Limited (Angostura) was distilled in 2009 on a four column still. It then aged for 11 years in ex-bourbon casks at the distillery before being transported to Maison Ferrand's Chateau de Bonbonnet in France for a year of further aging in cognac barrels. It was bottled at 51.8% abv with no added sugar, or "dosage".
The nose opens with tonka beans, vanilla, caramel, coffee, cooked fruits, nuts with fresh spicy notes and a slight touch of floral hint. On the palate, there are wisps of sweet pastries while hinting at light petrol notes as well. The finish is bitter almonds, orgeat, plus hints of citrus layered with fresh fruits.
