To honor Alexandre Gabriel’s 20th anniversary as Master Blender, we created Plantation XO 20th Anniversary using a blend of quintessential extra-old rums from Barbados.
Over a decade later, we are still very proud of this rum as it continues to receive praises and top awards.
First aged in bourbon casks in Barbados for many years, this rum is then sailed across the ocean in barrels to the southwest of France to be further matured in small Ferrand French oak casks.
This centuries-old “double aging “ process imparts incredible smoothness and complexity. It unveils a sophisticated palette of chocolate, vanilla, ripe banana, roasted coconut, and a hint of fresh mango notes. With a remarkably long finish, Plantation XO 20th Anniversary is truly a rum to savor.
Nose: The stunning floral/fruity opening aroma is transcendent, then releases the fragrance of vanilla, cocoa, and milk
Palate: The delightful mango notes lend evidence to its advanced age, a result of long maturation in the French oak cask.
