Plantation Rum / Pineapple Stiggin's Fancy / 750mL
A tribute to the character created by Charles Dickens in the Pickwick Papers, Reverend Stiggins, whose favorite drink was “pineapple rum.” The barks of Victoria pineapples are infused in Plantation 3 Stars rum, which is then further distilled. Separately, the pineapple fruit is infused in Plantation Original Dark rum. Both distillate and fruit infusion are finally blended together, creating a rich and delicious pineapple bouquet, accented by smoky and clove notes.
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 93 points - The pineapple aromas on this rum achieve the difficult goal of being present without dominating the delicious dark rum character. The happy marriage continues with a pleasantly soft palate in which the rum's toasted oak is softened by lively, fresh fruit..March/2017
