Plantation Extrême No. 4 2007 13yr 58,9%

RX7349 Very good Column Still Rum 544 bottles Under 250€
“Surprisingly complex, fruity-spicy with honey notes, benefits from airing, potent.”

Plantation Extrême No. 4 is a limited release produced in Saint Lucia at the Saint Lucia Distillers distillery, selected and bottled by independent bottler Maison Ferrand. Distilled in 2007 using a Coffey Still and aged for 13 years, this rum packs a punch at 58.9% ABV. With only 544 bottles available, it has a distinct aroma characterized by vanilla, woody, caramel, spicy, and solvent notes. The flavor profile is equally intriguing, featuring woody, caramel, clove, roasted, and vanilla notes. RumX users praise its interesting and surprising nature, likening it to Caroni profiles and highlighting its fruitiness, spices, and heavy aroma. However, some find it a little on the sweet side and feel the price may not fully justify the experience. Overall, Plantation Extrême No. 4 is an atypical Saint Lucia rum with a well-balanced, intense, and luxurious taste.

How does this rum taste?

A boldly intense St. Lucia rum with unexpected hints of Caroni, rich in spices and dark fruits with a bourbon woodiness. Some find it sweet and complex; others feel it’s overpriced and lacks the iconic 'dirty' St. Lucia notes. Best enjoyed with patience.

“What a difference from other good rums from Lucia! This tastes more like a mediocre Spanish. Probably it is continental matured?!”

“I just returned from a luxury tasting I was invited to and I'm actually a bit tipsy this time because all the rums had a high proof. This tasting was Plantation extreme only and this is the third one of the six. This one was far better than the previous one. It may be an atypical Saint Lucia rum, but it balances pretty well. Leave in the glass for a while to get all the flawours. Price to quality is OK.”
