Review: Plantation Trinidad 2000 (Old Reserve) Rum
Posted by Arctic Wolf on January 17, 2012
The Plantation Trinidad Rum Old Reserve Rum is another unique rum from Cognac Ferrand’s Plantation line-up. It is a well aged rum of Trinidadian origin which has been produced using the column still and a short fermentation period. The rum has been aged a minimum of nine years in used bourbon casks, and after this initial maturation, the rum was transported from Trinidad to France where it was finished for a short time in used Cognac casks to enhance the flavour.
Last May I was given eight sample bottles, each 200 ml in size, which represent a good portion of the Plantation Rum line-up. The Plantation Trinidad is the sixth of these sample bottles which I have chosen to review here on my blog.
Here is an excerpt from that review:
“…That herbaceous impression I received above the glass while nosing the rum has intensified as I taste it. This sensation softens the rum taking the edge off of the orange peel and oak spices. It also seems to dampen the sweetness a little. The result is a different sort of rum which carries flavours of orange peel, butterscotch, vanilla, marzipan, toasted coconut and oak spice…”

Although my sample was fairly small, I did try one cocktail which I enjoyed immensely, The Sloe Lime Daiquiri which I included in they review.
Please enjoy the review and the cocktail!
