This is a bottling by Plantation of spirit distilled by Long Pond in Jamaica and aged for 22 years. Bottled at cask strength, this rum is finished for a year in Ferrand barrels. Let's see how it is.
Sweet pear, mango, brown sugar, papaya. Bright, some copper, pepper, mostly sweet. Faint funk.
Thin to medium mouth feel. Prickle of heat, but not excessive. Sweet cream, plantain, pepper, nice oak structure, faint astringency.
Short, but nice. Apple, fruits, stone fruits, cream and pepper.
This is nice overall. Not mind blowing, but nice. That said, I don't think it's unseating any greats.
