Review: Plantation Jamaica (2002) Vintage Edition

Posted by Arctic Wolf on April 6, 2018

Cognac Ferrand has long had a special relationship with a variety of Caribbean rum producers which is based upon the rum producer’s need for quality oak casks to age their rum. Based upon this relationship, Cognac Ferrand is able to acquire certain old and unique batches of rum from various Caribbean sources, which they bring back to France and finish in their own warehouses and of course their own Cognac Casks.

Plantation Jamaica (2002) Vintage Edition was first aged in bourbon casks in tropical Jamaica after which it was transported to the Chateau de Bonbonnet in France, where it was aged for 3 more years in used 350 litre Pierre Ferrand Cognac casks to enhance the rum before it was bottled as part of Cognac Ferrand’s growing line-up of Vintage Plantation Rums.

Here is a link to my recently published review:

Review: Plantation Jamaica (2002) Vintage Edition

“… When I bring my glass to my nose I notice the characteristic aromatic esters and funk of the Jamaican Pot Still. I decide to wait a few minutes to let the air above the glass settle and then I begin again. The breezes are teaming with scents of butterscotch and peppery baking spices (vanilla, cinnamon, and a touch of nutmeg) …”

Please enjoy my review which now includes a wonderful mixed drink suggestion, 1878 Rum Cocktail.

  1. Hi im trying to figure out why my bottle of palm breeze froze solid after putting in freezer with the rest of my bottled booz? I have never witnessed it befor and i wounder if the plastic bottle has ben tampered with in some way even tho the bottle had not ben cracked prior to me opening it?

    • Bottle liquor is a combination of alcohol and water. If you leave a bottle in a cold freezer for a too long, the water and alcohol solution can begin to separate and the water portion freezes. The alcohol portion should remain unfrozen. Just take the bottle out of the freezer and the ice will melt. Let the bottle stand for several days to allow the mixture to rest and it should be okay. (This happens with vodka quite often when people throw a bottle in the freezer and leave it for weeks at a time.)
