    Maison Ferrand is one of the most highly regarded Cognac houses, and during the travels of Chairman Alexandre Gabriel around the world to sell the high quality spirit and negotiate cask purchases for maturation, he discovered stocks of amazing quality rum that were waiting to be bottled. In order to gain grace with those distilleries and cask owners (and also pay cheaper costs) Gabriel set up the Plantation brand, in which cask of rum from around the Caribbean are sent to France to be cared for, married, finished - whatever needs doing to ensure the best quality product ends up in bottle.

    The Original Dark is the entry-level release into their range of phenomenal dark rums. It's a blend of Barbados 1 to 3 year old rums from both Pot and Column still alongside Jamaican Pot Still High Ester 10-15 year old spirit, which is ultimately blended into wooden vats to marry for a further 3 to 6 months in the southwest of France. 15g/L of sugar is also added to sweeten slightly.

    The end result is a decadent dark rum with soft spice that ramps up towards the end, helped by that high ester 'funk' from the Jamaican batch. If you want to mix it will cut through whatever you pair with, but it also drinks brilliantly on its own. For the money, there are aren't many better dark rums - if any.
