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.

Chimo!

Here is a link to the review for the Rum Howler #15 Rum of 2017:

Review: Plantation Jamaica (2002) Vintage Edition

“… When I take the first sip of the Plantation Jamaican Rum, it is a combination of lightly sweet butterscotch and the esters of the Jamaican which commands my attention. Spicy orange peel plays with soothing menthol. Herbal flavours of eucalyptus, lemongrass and peppermint pushing their way through …”
