Plantation Trinidad 2009-2021 Beer Cask Finish 45.2°: Description and customer reviews

Plantation's Beer Cask Finish is a rum from the island of Trinidad, in the south-east of the West Indies.

It was distilled from molasses in a 4-column alembic at Trinidad Distillers Limited, after a 3-day fermentation.

This was followed by 10 years' ageing on the island in bourbon casks, before being repatriated to France for 1 year's maturation in Cognac casks from Maison Ferrand, in the Château de Bonbonnet cellars. This 2009 vintage was then finished for a further 11 months in barrels that had previously contained Duvel. Duvel is a Belgian high-fermentation lager created in 1923.

This is a limited edition from the Single Cask Collection. Each bottle is numbered.

Nico's tasting notes

The nose is full of mellow yellow fruit, with cereal accents that evoke a round, sweet rum. Abundant stone notes bring a particularly generous pastry side, supported by bitter almond.

With a little aeration, a soft but roasted woodiness is revealed, along with fuller-bodied spicy notes with slight tarry nuances. The fruitiness then resurfaces with an oily character reminiscent of orange peel.

On the palate, greedy American oak quickly gives way to a pastry-like indulgence. Raisins, prunes and almonds evoke a rich, creamy cake batter, generously drizzled with rum.

On the finish, a hint of roasting spices up the palate.

"A very gourmet and pastry version of Trinidad rums..."
