EXTRA-ROBUSTO : POWER AND HARMONY
 

Plantation Guyana is the only rum in the Plantation range to have sugar cane syrup as its raw material. From a long fermentation, then distilled in a Charente alambic pot still and finally aged in bourbon casks a fine balance is earned. Bottled at 45% it’s a “masterpiece of harmony and power” according to Paul Pacult in the Spirit Journal (April 2015)

TASTE PROFILE

"I like the toastiness of the initial aroma as well as the saline/see breeze quality of it; secondary whiffs pick up faint hints of dried sage, new leather, dried flowers, sea salt, dark caramel. Entry is lusciously sweet, honeyed, brown sugar-like, intense; mid-palate turns spicy, tangy, rich in texture, more bittersweet than sweet, beany (cocoa). Extra-long finish, a touch grapy/raisiny, dark chocolate-like. Perfect alcohol level for dark rum, which ensures grip and structural substance. To my way of thinking, a master piece of harmony and power." Paul Pacult ★★★★ Highly Recommended.

SYMBOL

The label refers to the Anglican Saint-Georges cathedral from the Colonial era. The frieze shows a war bonnet, symbol of the indigenous population of the country and still present on the coat of arms of Guyana
