    Plantation Rum Original Dark


    Cognac Ferrand has long a history of providing Cognac Casks to various Caribbean rum producers based upon the rum producer’s need for quality oak casks to age their rum. Because of this long history of Cognac, Ferrand has over time developed solid relationships with many of these producers. Based upon these relationships they have been able to acquire certain unique batches of rum from various Caribbean sources. Typically these rums are brought back to France to be finished in their own warehouses and of course in their own Cognac Casks.


    The Plantation Original Dark 73 % Overproof Rum is Cognac Ferrand’s ‘tiki style’ overproof rum. The base rum is a column distilled rum from Trinidad which was aged in oak barrels in Trinidad before being transported to France.


    Plantation Rum Original Dark In The Bottle


    The Plantation Overproof arrives in a 1.14-liter clear bottle shown to the left. the label design especially that red diagonal stripe with 73 % Overproof written in black across it. it because it catches the eye and causes the bottle to stand out on the bar shelf. When
    look for an overproof rum, it is typically the first bottle that notices (and that is the point is it not).


    Some persons have claimed dislike for these caps is unreasonable, but in just a few short weeks have twice had a metallic cap strip as opened a bottle of rum, and one of those two bottles was this one. This has happened to me several times in the past few years, and always it is a pressed-on metallic screw cap that is the culprit. My dislike for this style of closure continues.


    Plantation Rum Original Dark In the Glass


    The Plantation Overproof carries a bright copper reddish-brown color into the glass and a rich (although somewhat astringent) aroma into the breezes above the glass. The rum is bottled at 73 % alcohol by volume, and the high alcohol content pushes up out of the glass causing the astringency.


    The high alcohol content also means that the rum is relatively undiluted which means that all of the aroma (and the flavors too) will be much more concentrated than a regular 40 % alcohol by volume rum would be.


    Within this rich aroma can smell a strong butterscotch/caramel toffee which seems to rise up in waves out of the glass. Banana peel, marmalade, and marzipan appear as well in a bouquet that despite the astringency is very inviting. Rounding out the nose are some very nice baking spices (vanilla, cinnamon, and brown sugar)


    I would take some time to sniff the wonderful aromas of the empty glass. This aroma is rich with baking spices and lingering smells of canned fruit, nutmeg, and cloves.


    Plantation Rum Original Dark In the Mouth


    Sipping the rum at full strength is a bit challenging, to say the least. had to take it extremely easy as this rum carries an intense alcohol sting and assertive hot spices in its wake.


    The rich caramel toffee noted on the nose is just as strong in the mouth, and the marmalade aroma that had been sniffed earlier seems to have a lot of orange peel bite coming along with it for the ride. admiration for the intense flavor, adding an ice cube to the glass is probably a good thing.


    When ice-cube the heat is easier to handle, but only a little. clearly taste baking spices and marzipan, and a real fruitiness has developed which has expressed itself as canned peaches and apricots.


    This rum is meant for the cocktail. The rum is strong enough that all of those taste sensations noted earlier are clearly pushing through the cola, in particular, the baking spices are being emphasized now such that a yummy cinnamon bun flavor is quite apparent in the mixing glass.


    This cocktail combines an overproof rum with lime, agave syrup, and a heavy dose of crushed ice. It is really a great recipe, and with the Plantation Overproof, it is extremely tasty. this up (the next day) with a true tiki recipe, the Zombie (see recipe below). The zombie kicked my tonsils hard, but again it is just plain tasty with the Plantation rum.


    Plantation Rum Original Dark In the Throat


    Plantation Rum Original Dark is a full 146 proof rum with lots of heat and spice, and able to sip it when added to an ice cube although, even with an ice cube, the rum still carries heat to spare. However, there is also a good dose of intense fruit-filled flavor, and a surprisingly sweet honey-like aftertaste.


    Plantation Rum Original Dark The After Burn


    The Plantation Rum Original Dark Overproof Rum is a great overproof rum. Whether just a simple rum and coke or a more complex tiki drink, the rum mixes relatively easily into cocktails providing a nice flavourful high-octane boost. would recommend it heartily!


    Last thought Plantation Rum Original Dark


    The rich and intense style of Jamaica and Barbados, with their notes of plum, banana, and vanilla, is enhanced by meticulous blending and further maturation in France.


    The result is a profound structure spiced with notes of cinnamon and clove, whose smoky quality adds texture.
    An ideal companion for cocktails and a great cigar!
