Plantation Barbados XO 20th Anniversary Rhum
Blended by Alexandre Gabriel, a Master Blender for Plantation Rum for two decades, Plantation XO 20th Anniversary is a blend of four rare and highly sought-after single barrel rums from Barbados. Although it has been over twenty years since this rum was first introduced, we are still very proud of it as it continues to receive top awards.
Plantation XO 20th Anniversary has a unique and intriguing history. First aged in bourbon casks in Barbados for many years, this rum is then sailed across the ocean in barrels to the southwest of France to be further matured in small Ferrand French oak casks. The centuries-old “double ageing” process imparts incredible smoothness and complexity. Plantation XO 20th Anniversary reveals a sophisticated palate of chocolate, vanilla, ripe banana, roasted coconut and a hint of fresh mango notes
Five years old, this rum has flavors of Barbados with flambeed banana, coconut and dried fruit.
Smooth and strong, this Plantation Barbados Rum has a deep color and a great flavor that will only continue to improve no matter what you choose to mix it with or if you prefer to drink it straight.
Nose : The stunning floral/fruity opening aroma is transcendent, then releases fragrance of vanilla, cocoa and milk
Palate : The delightful mango notes lend evidence to its advanced age, a result of long maturation in French oak cask.
