Continuously distilled in multi-column stills, Plantation Trinidad 2009 also stands out for its maturation process.
This superb rum was first matured for 11 years in 200-liter ex-bourbon casks in the Trinidadian distillery’s cellars, built entirely of red bricks and particularly admired by Alexandre Gabriel and Andrew Hassell. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, the bricks make it possible to maintain a cool temperature and, as a result, to exert greater control over the ageing of the cane eaux-de-vie. Plantation Trinidad 2009 was then treated to an additional one-year ageing period in Javrezac, in France’s Charente region, in 400-liter French oak barrels from Maison Ferrand.
The labels of these special rums honor emblematic birds of their origin nations, such as the scarlet ibis. This superb bird, with its intense red plumage, is one of the symbols of Trinidad and Tobago.
Nose: Lovely aromas of vanilla, caramel, coffee bean, Tonka bean and candied fruits. A pastry style enhanced by very elegant woody and light floral notes that add a welcome freshness.
Palate: Very dense and structured, it features the same pastry register as the nose while delivering a very pleasant petrol touch. It seduces with power, depth and complexity.
Finish: Delicately acidic and fruity, it delivers notes of bitter almond and barley. It charms with a very elegant woody touch and sublime length.
