Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
1st attempt: to sip straight from that single cask. Ethanol stinks, kills an ideas, expectations, everything. Too harsh, way too spicy (from whiskey).
2nd attempt - let it breathe for 10 minutes. Became more smoother, some aroma appeared, well known Ferrand cask.
3rd. Added whole table spoon of water. Now it is easy to sip and there's bunch of flavor. Base is classic Panamanian, with added apple, pearl notes, some feeling of added sugar. Infinity long aftertaste, just Ok.
A bit overpriced. Buy once.
Edit; just compiled nirvana equation: 50ml of plantation 52° plus 6.5ml of water (5ml table spoon + 1.5 of air humidity) makes this ti 46°. The drink gets opened, shines and allure_s you. Spectrum of aroma and taste gets wide: prune, apricot, probably some berries and definitely Deja Vue of demerara sugar detected.
Bumping up to score 8. Thanks Plantation!
Un rhum hispanique avec qui garde sa trame de base mais qui apporte un caractère agréable pour ne pas s'ennuyer.
