This St Lucia 2004 is the most special one I have tasted from Plantation.
You have a bunch of vegetal and flower flavors. Even with 43°, this rum is easy to drink and very enjoyable.
Once again a nice discovery from Maison Ferrand !
While many of the other plantation Rums are rather too sweet, this one pushes my buttons, since it is sweet but also complex.
God och söt men skarp eftersmak pga tillsatt socker.
From the beginning till the end, this rum brought all the spectrum of tastes. Starts with a bit sweetness in combination with alcohol harshness. Followed by herbs and spices into very pleasant aftertaste. I really enjoyed every moment of this rum.
If you want a unique rum, this is unique for sure. Nose is almost an ovenproof with serious strength, little caramel butterscotch. Taste is like sipping on a bouquet of daffodils, really interesting and a good amount of spice and tart. Lingering finish is floral as well.
Not my favourite to sip on all night, but absolutely worth a try.
Color: Reddish brown
A mix of spearmint flavored throat lozenge and cough syrup. In addition there is some tobacco.
Ultra-sweet cough cough syrup with some oaky and peppery aromas. Concentrated melissa and spearmint extract.
Long. Strong cold black tea with a lot of sugar and a spearmint aftertaste.
Ikke smagt. .
Like most rums of this quality and age. Very complex and layers with strong oak from barrel. Almost had a anise / iodine taste in a good way as it spends time in a glass
An interesting and complex rum with lots of facets to smell and taste. For me, there is to much emphasis on the barrell taste, with this the rum lost its balance. My whisky lover friend liked it more than i did... Looking forward to try the 20 XO
Superbe nez sur les épices, les agrumes confits, la vanille, le toasté...
... mais rude en bouche, agressant.
Mieux en mix.
Di questo rum esistono 2 versioni: 2004 Old Reserve e 2004 Vintage Edition. Qui descrivo la versione Vintage Edition:
Il rum più cognacoso che io abbia mai provato (ancora più del Guyana 2005 Old Reserve). Dolce (ma non in eccesso), profumo robusto e sapore di Cognac molto aggresivo. Dopo 1 biccherino sei quasi saturo. Forse la versione 2004 Old Reserve era meno aggressiva e non eccedeva così tanto nei sapore/profumo? Spero di trovarne una ancora in circolazione...
Very good work from Ferrand with this St Lucia 2004. The bourbon oak is very present, beautiful floral & vegetal flavors and also iodized flavor. Extra dry with long finish. Great work from Maison Ferrand.
