The Plantation Barbados (Arran single malt scotch whisky cask) by Maison Ferrand offers a delightful blend of classic fruity Barbados notes with a pronounced whisky influence.

It's well-integrated with light peaty and smoky notes, and a warm finish featuring mild wood and citrus.

“Wow, nope. Fortunately, I can't taste anything from the whisky barrel, but this rum seems somehow ordinary and is clearly too spicy.”

“Masterclass mit Alexandre Gabriel am 04.04.2024. Plantation wird Planteray. Wieder so ein Whisky Finish, auf das ich persönlich so gar nicht stehe. Im Gegensatz zu dem Guyana bei dem Tasting nicht gar so aufdringlich. Nett, aber nichts was ich jetzt brauchen würde.”

“An der Nase ist zu Beginn nicht viel los, ein paar gelbe Früchte und aufdringlicher Alkohol. Nach einer Weile kommen ein paar Gewürze und Zitrusfrüchte dazu. Am Gaumen übernimmt das Fass mit vordergründige Würze und Tanninen. Auch hier habe ich einen unangenehm starken alkoholischen Eindruck. Der Nachklang ist mittellang und Würze und Tannine dominieren Mittelmäßiger Rum an dem ich nicht viel Positives finde.”
