A staggering overproof rum sourced from Trinidad and created by the Cognac Ferrand estate. This stuff is bottled at 73% abv and is aged in young bourbon casks before bottling.
Nose: Cane sugar and hints of dried banana. Oak and nutmeg, a little toffee.
Palate: Guava and melon. Cedar, dark brown sugar and hints of dried mango. Very punchy though surprisingly quaffable.
Finish: Fiery warmth on the finish, in the form of golden syrup and wood spice.

I've been put off by other overproof rums. They just struck me as some sort of macho bravado thing, than an actual quality rum, but I've never had a bad plantation so far. Nose: Challenging stuff, it takes a while to get your nose used to all that booze, but when you do. Clove, mace, pepper,nutmeg, marmalade, pineapple, toasted coconut, roasted marshmallows, dried banana, dried mango, hard caramel. Palate: You don't drink this stuff, it evaporates on your tounge and you taste the fumes. Thick bitter marmalade again, powerful vanilla, coconut, dried peaches, dried apricots, bitter inky oak, dried bananas, guava, unripe pears, lime peel, the spices from the nose are here, clove, mace, nutmeg, ginger. Finnish: Sits very warm in your belly like a hot coal. Dry oaky vanilla hangs around for ages. Comments: It takes a lot of time and effort to get to the bottom of this, but it's worth it, this is no gimmick this is a high quality rum.
