Bottled By: Maison Ferrand 70cl / 40%
The spectacular Plantation XO 20th Anniversary Rum was created over a decade ago to celebrate Alexandre Gabriel's 20th Anniversary as Master Blender at Plantation's owner Maison Ferrand.
Plantation XO 20th Anniversary is a complex blend of pot and column-distilled Barbados rums, aged for 8-15 years in the Caribbean before a further 2-10 years of ageing in France, with many of the component rums reracked into virgin oak, ex-bourbon casks and Maison Ferrand's French oak casks.
XO 20th Anniversary
Nose: The stunning floral/fruity opening aroma is transcendent, then releases fragrance of vanilla, cocoa and milk chocolate.
Palate: The delightful mango notes lend evidence to its advanced age, a result of long maturation in French oak cask.
