Plantation 20th Anniversary XO Rum
20 years worth of experience and tradition. In collaboration with Alexandre Gabriel, we designed Plantation XO 20th Anniversary to commemorate his 20th anniversary as Master Blender. Extensively aged in freshly emptied barrels, Plantation XO 20th Anniversary is a blend of quintessential extra-old rums from Barbados. Over a decade later, we are still quite proud of this rum as it continues to receive praises and top awards for its unique character and complex flavors: honeyed tropical fruit over soft caramel and butterscotch notes.
Gently refined and then aged in small French oak casks in southwest France, Plantation XO 20th Anniversary is made using sugarcane rum from Barbados. The centuries-old double ageing process results in a complex rum with notes of chocolate, vanilla, ripe banana and roasted coconut.
The stunning floral/fruity opening aroma is transcendent, then releases fragrance of vanilla, cocoa and milk
The delightful mango notes lend evidence to its advanced age, a result of long maturation in French oak cask.
