This extraordinary vintage was introduced to mark the 20th anniversary of Maison Ferrand. An assemblage of fine rums 12 - 20 years old, all originating in Barbados, this is a wonderful reflection of the island itself.
As with the other rums in the Plantation range, this exotic spirit is aged first in its original country, Barbados, and then benefits with further aging and nurturing in Cognac. Resting in casks originally used for Pierre Ferrand cognac, and meticulously nurtured by Cellar Master of Maison Ferrand, a unique expression is achieved using traditional local methods.
Good rum usually does not cost as much as tequila or scotch. At about $48ish (with tax) this is such an excellent rum. I am still surprised at how smooth it is and the lovely notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and coconut. I don't normally use ice but since it is to chill it and not dilute it. I find it extremely refreshing.
