Plantation Original Dark 3 years is an authentic rum that combines the best of Barbados and Jamaica. This rum, which is produced from molasses, matures on both ex-bourbon barrels and French oak. The rum from Barbados used for this blend is between one and three years, the Jamaican rum is a bit older: between ten and fifteen years. Rich and intense flavor, that's how you Plantation Original Dark best described. Pleasant fragrance with notes of pepper, cloves, cinnamon, cherries and plums. Full and fruity on the palate with raisins, pineapple and spices stand out. Yummy in the mix, but try'm certainly once purely with an ice cube.
