Barbados Rum XO Plantation Single Cask #16 / ex-Mackmyra Cask Finish
Launched in 2003, Plantation Rum is a brand owned by the well-established cognac producer, Cognac Ferrand. Established in 1989, Maison Ferrand has used its extensive contacts in the spirits industry to source some exceptional casks of rum. The company also has privileged access to those in the warehouses of Clarendon and Long Pond in Jamaica, through its acquisition of the West India Rum Distillery (WIRD) and the shares in National Rums of Jamaica that came with it. Its ownership of the Bajan WIRD distillery has seen it increasingly involved in rum production as well as bottling in recent years.
This is a 2017 bottling of Bajan rum, likely from the company's WIRD distillery which they acquired that year. It has been aged tropically for four years in ex-bourbon wood before a further year of continental ageing in a Ferrand cask in France. Finally, the rum was finished in a cask that once held Mackmyra Swedish single malt whisky.
One of 198 bottles.
