About Plantation Barbados 5 Year Rum

There's a very strong case for making Plantation 5 Year Rum your house-rum so to speak. It's a Tiki Cocktail utility player. Mai Tai, yes. Daiquiri, yes. Jungle Bird riff, yes. One Curiada customer, Chris calls Plantation 5 Year a "Swiss Army Knife of Rum", and we could not agree more.  

Tasting Notes for Plantation 5 Year Rum 

Baking spices shine through from nose and there are very subtle hints of tobacco, toasted marshmallow, and dried fruit. The flavor profile contains rich notes of baked fruits, caramel, molasses, nutmeg and Allspice.

Selected as a recommended spirit to pair with Shaker & Spoon’s Rum for the Holidays Box.

Recommended by: Randeen Thomas

For Randeen Thomas the choice was Plantation Barbados 5 Year Rum. “Picture this: the Barbados 5-year rum, a masterpiece aged gracefully and to perfection in the embrace of both American and French oak barrels. The result? A symphony of flavors, dancing between baked spices, fruity notes, and a medium-long, lingering finish,” raves Randeen.

Production Notes

Plantation 5 Year is a Barbados style rum. It's distilled in Twin Column and Pot Stills and ages in both Bourbon casks and Cognac (Ferrand) casks. Plantation Rums are produced by Maison Ferrand who upholds a vision of creating remarkable rums through traditional production methods and modern experimentation. 

Final note: there's a reason Plantation 5 Year Rum sits on the shelf in more and more of the world's premium cocktail bars. Try it for yourself.

    Best All Rounder Dark Rum

    It's a really good rum. Great for starters due to price and how versatile it is.

    Served as a great gift

    Based on how my roommate's initial reaction and how he spoke about the rum it was quite good! I bought it for him as a gift and it seems it was a worthwhile purchase. I will most certainly be getting this again in the future, and if not for him definitely for myself.

    A delightfully flexible "daily driver"

    At its price point this one really hard to beat.

    While better options exist in each sub-category of rum (at higher prices) this rum plays well with just about everything.

    It is clean and smooth, expressing a mix of vanilla, banana, caramel, and light spice. While its young age makes it a bit underwhelming when neat (great on the front end, but falls off a bit too fast on the back with few barrel flavors to turn to), this very limitation helps it blend nicely into almost any rum cocktail. It imparts all the keystone rum flavors without overstaying its welcome, or distorting cocktails.

    Plantation 5 year is the rum I recommend always keeping on hand while you explore the rest of the rum world.
