Plantation Original Dark
The Original Dark is a blend of Trinidad and Tobago rums selected by Alexandre Gabriel and aged in young American oak bourbon casks. The base rum is aged three to five years and is then blended with a more robust, fully-flavored eight year old rum.
Nose : Hints of black peppercorn, clove, cinnamon, baked cherry, prune, molasses; later sniffs encounter forest, leaves, black tea, dry stone.
Palate : Entry is fruity with white raisins, dried pineapple, and is off-dry. midpalate is spicy, piquant, minerally, and significantly drier than the entry stage. Ends spicy.
