BARBADOS & VENEZUELA

BLACK CASK 2023


A HARMONIOUS FUSION OF BARBADIAN AND VENEZUELAN RUMS

Black cask 2023

Description


This new limited edition Plantation Rum Black Cask is the encounter of two emblematic rum regions, Barbados and Venezuela. This blend is composed of rums distilled in pot still and column, for an elegant and balanced profile. After a first aging in ex-bourbon barrels in their country of origin, under a tropical climate, these two rums crossed the Atlantic to the southwest of France for a second maturation in French oak barrels, slightly toasted.

This double maturation, signature of Plantation rums, gives birth to a rich expression: intense and fresh, with delicate pastry notes and citrus. Plantation Rum Black Cask 2023 can be enjoyed neat or on the rocks.
