Plantation
Barbados 5 Year Aged Rum

Category: Rum (Aged more than 3 Years)

Date Tasted:
Country: Barbados

Medium gold color. Aromas and flavors of cinnamon sugar syrup, vanilla, pralines, and roast figs in honey with a round, dryish medium body and a long finish with notes of vanilla and powdered sugar, ginger, honey, banana and and pineapple vanilla ice cream sundae. A delicious interplay of vanilla and cinnamon with candied tropical fruits that work very well together.

Rum Aged more than 3 Years

Añejo and Age-Dated Rums are aged Rums from different vintages or batches that are mixed together to insure a continuity of flavor in brands of Rum from year to year. Some aged Rums will give age statements stating the youngest Rum in the blend (e.g., 10-year-old Rum contains a blend of Rums that are at least 10 years old). A small number of French island Rums are Vintage Dated.
