Plantation Rum Barbados Grande Réserve is a rum from Barbados that has been aged for 5 years in oak barrels formerly used for maturing bourbon. After the years spent in the tropical climate of this small island state of the West Indies, the rum was then transported to Château Bonbonnet, in the Charente, to be refined. These two stages of ageing give Plantation Rum Barbados Grande Réserve a gourmet character.
To be enjoyed dry or on the rocks, rum can also be used in prestigious cocktails.
Laurent's tasting note
Its colour is golden.
On the nose, there is a simple and pleasant profile totally dominated by vanilla and citrus (especially orange). It is greedy and seems sweet. After a while, discrete notes of olive appear.
On the palate, the attack is soft, without being too sweet, and we find the markers of the nose: vanilla, orange but also olive, which gives it a little more relief.
The finish, which is medium long, is vanilla and very slightly woody.
disappointing, alcohol is not melted...
Very good value for money
Always so good, drink at room temperature without anything
Atypical but excellent
personally I find it tastes like honey
