The Rum Collective's Selection of the Season: Plantation Single Casks

Plantation Single Casks: Panama 8yr Old Reserve & Guatemala XO Extra Old Reserve

Plantation Rums intrigue almost every passer-by with their looks and shine of artisan craftsmanship in the glass; just give them the opportunity. These Rums not only stand out in their respective categories when compared to their peers in tasting competitions, they win. Cream rises, right? If you are in love with the C. Ferrand's unique rum expressions already, then what I am about to tell you, may give you a reason to propose and tie the knot with Alexandre Gabriel himself. Kidding...kind of.

It is a pleasure to announce that these two gorgeous Plantation Single Cask Rums are now available in Washington State!! (see photo above)

Such wonderful news is not only a beautiful beginning to this holiday season (more awesome Rum!!), but a long-awaited, perfect ending to our fourth rum-filled year here in Seattle. It was an honor to have been approached by Plantation for such an opportunity and needless to say, the longest running rum society in the USA accepted. These two Single Cask expressions were "selected by The Rum Collective" for there rich and remarkably complex flavor profiles. Wait, what? New Plantation Single Casks coming to Seattle in time for the holidays? Yep, that's right, but here's the caveat; they are a "Limited Edition" release, as in once they are gone, THEY ARE GONE. Interested? Keep reading...

Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Plantation Single Cask: Guatemala XO Reserve / Cask 12/16; Bottle 301/450
Absolutely Stunning!

You may find these rare gems at a few rum loving bars, like Rumba and Tacoma Cabana. But don't wait too long...

However, if you want to buy a bottle (or four), they will be sold exclusively at Wine World & Spirits. The Rum Collective will be having a complimentary tasting at Wine World and all attendees will have an opportunity to buy them first at a discounted price. Buying is suggested!
