La Isla Cuisine’s “Hard To Get”: Plantation Trinidad
Cognac Ferrand’s use of the rare aging process called “Double Aging” provides Plantation rums with their unmatched smoothness and balance. In the double aging process, Caribbean rums are first aged using young bourbon casks, and then shipped to Cognac Ferrand’s Chateau de Bonbonnet cellars in France, where they are aged a second time in small oak casks previously used to age cognac. The result is an exceptional rum.
This rum is characterized by its uprightness and its smoothness. The nose is complex with cinnamon and tropical fruits notes, and also notes of smoke. In the finish, we find notes of candied orange and of cooked molasses.
