A very fine blend of Barbados rums, aged for five years in bourbon casks in the Caribbean then refined in old French oak casks at Chateau de Bonbonnet. Its succulent nose, typical of the Barbados style, reveals notes of toasted coconut, fudge and oaky vanilla. Plantation Grande Reserve 5 Year Old can be enjoyed straight, on ice or in cocktails." -The Distillery 90-95 Points – Wine Enthusiast, March 2004 "Scents include brown sugar, molasses, vanilla bean, ripe tropical fruit, marzipan, refined sugar and honey. Taste features intriguing, bittersweet tastes of black pepper, molasses, dark chocolate and palm oil. Finish is long, bittersweet and woody.
