Beloved rum line Plantation has unveiled its latest limited edition rum, Guyana 2007. The bottling celebrates marine animals native to traditional rum regions.
Plantation Guyana 2007 is the fourth bottling in the Maison Ferrand-owned brand’s Under the Sea Vintage collection No 2, it features a blend of rums produced in column and pot stills that were aged in both Guyana and France. It was selected from the cellars of Demerara Distillers Limited, where it had been maturing for 13 years in ex-Bourbon casks, by the managing director and rum historian at West Indies Rum Distillery, Andrew Hassell. It was then transferred to French oak casks to finish in Javrezac, France, to age for an additional two years.
The expression is the result of one-week fermentations that were distilled in three historic stills: the Port Mourant double wooden pot still, the French Savalle four-column metal still and the Enmore Wooden Coffey still.
Plantation Guyana 2007 was made in collaboration with Alexandre Gabriel, owner and master blender of Plantation Rum, and Shaun Caleb, master distiller of Demerara Distillers Limited. On the nose, it delivers aromas of cocoa, almond, and banana, which opens up to orange, caramel, and tobacco on the palate. The finish is described as long and spicy.
Bottled at 51% ABV, the rum is priced at £72.95 ($81 USD) per 700ml. For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.
In July, Plantation unveiled Extreme Collection No. 5, a trio of limited-edition vintage rums from the West Indies Rum Distillery.
