Plantation Classic Dark Overproof Rum: The Single Malt Review Episode 130

A full 74% abv (146 US proof!) of unadulterated Trinidad & Tobago rum goodness. A potable fire hazard that might see some increased interest now that the classic Bacardi 151 is being discontinued.

While it’s not exactly a rum, this barrel-aged cachaca (the 2nd one reviewed) is a close cousin, and definitely one of the more interesting spirits I’ve recently tried. https://www.drinkhacker.com/2014/04/20/review-novo-fogo-cachaca/

Great review lads. Not sure I really want to spend my money on this one. There are, at this moment in time, some very fine rums on the market. Unfortunately they are usually bottled by independent bottlers and therefore in limited supply and hard to find. I’ve been really enjoying what Habitation Velier have been releasing. You should try to get some of those because they are rewriting the rule book in terms of historical interest and quality. Berry Bros, Cadenhead, Duncan Taylor, etc, continue to do sterling work as well. Here’s one I think you two would like, and it wont break the bank – Foursquare 2004, 11 year ex-bourbon cask at 59%. Very nice indeed.

Plantation Rums seem to contain sugar although not excessively. Probably around 10 – 20 g / L.

How drab’ would the day be without having a dram or three and watching Dave and Tim and The Single malt Review test some Overproof Rum on the table the Goode Olde fashioned English way,,and as it burns two feet high and Dave starts to look addled,,Tim sarcastically describes the flames as only he could. Madness..thank you guys. Life would suck without your reviews.
