December’s Rum of the Month at Palace Café’s Black Duck Bar
PLANTATION XAYMACA SPECIAL DRY
100% POT STILL JAMAICAN RUM
Plantation revives the quintessential Jamaican-style, 100% pot still rums of the 19th century with an expression of intense flavors that reveal the traditional, legendary aromas and flavors of black banana and flambéed pineapple, locally called “Hogo,” an Anglicization of the French term “Haut Goût” (high taste).
Xaymaca Special Dry is an excellent tasting rum, to be enjoyed neat, or with a large ice cube and even a splash of pure water to reveal its smoky aromas.
Nose: Very complex, slightly smoky and meaty with fruity, herbal and sour notes building up. Next vanilla come forward, almost pastry-like, with cooked banana, bitter orange peel and ripe pineapple.
Palate: Dry, with a more floral and fruitier profile of rose water, soursop, pear, white grape, apricot and sugar-apple. Next some coconut milk, balsam, allspices, bread and nuts emerge.
