Gift pack contains 6 bottles of Plantation rum.
Flavor varieties: White rum, original dark rum, Grande Reserve, Gran Anejo, Xaymaca Special Dry, and Plantation XO rum.
Tasting notes from distillery:
Nose- Delicate scents of brown sugar, honey, coffee bean; later whiffs following further aeration encounter baking spices: vanilla, and cloves.
Palate- Entry is biscuity, yet is bittersweet and light-bodied. Mid-palate features round, supple flavors of dark chocolate, root beer, egg cream.
Finishes fast, refined. Serious white rum at its grassy, herbal best.
Nose- Hints of black peppercorn, clove, cinnamon, baked cherry, prune, molasses; later sniffs encounter forest, leaves, black tea, dry stone.
Palate- Entry is fruity with white raisins, dried pineapple, and is off-dry. mid-palate is spicy, piquant, minerally, and significantly drier than the entry stage. Ends spicy.
Nose- Complex and well-balanced notes of ripe tropical fruits and vanilla, evolving to delicate hints of white peach and coconut.
Palate- The double aging creates a first wave of tropical candied fruits leading to voluptuous bourbon vanilla notes, whose richness is perfectly balanced by the fresh fruits and delicate tannins of the second wave.
Nose- Vanilla, pear, green apple, and coconut as well as highly floral aromatics.
Palate- Subtle woody notes round off the sensual flavor.
Xaymaca Special Dry--
Nose- Very complex, slightly smoky and meaty with fruity, herbal and sour notes building up. Next vanilla come forward, almost pastry-like, with cooked banana, bitter orange peel and ripe pineapple.
Palate- Dry, with a more floral and fruitier profile of rose water, soursop, pear, white grape, apricot and sugar-apple. Next some coconut milk, balsam, allspices, bread and nuts emerge.
Nose- The stunning floral/fruity opening aroma is transcendent, then releases fragrance of vanilla, cocoa and milk chocolate.
Palate- The delightful mango notes lend evidence to its advanced age.
