plantationtrinidadPlantation is a company belonging to Ferrand cognac house, they are sourcing their rums from different makers around Caribbean and bottling these under the Plantation brand, this one is a column still rum from Trinidad, molasses based, I really like the detailed info they provide about their rums btw, aged in ex bourbon and finished in cognac casks.

Color: amber +2.

Nose: molasses, coffee liqueur, vanilla, raisins, dried fruit, orange marmalade, some mild smoke, not that complex but very pleasant.

Taste: light, quite sweet, again molasses, coffee, orange marmalade, marzipan, coconut maybe, some vegetal notes, wood bitterness, rather straightforward but it works.

Finish: long, sweet, tinned fruit, grass, wood sap.

Comments: simple, pleasant, rather sweet but not overly so, the oak is maybe a little too obvious for my liking, I think the Mount Gay XO little better, about 79 points.
