I bought this rum out of curiosity. On this site I have reviewed another Guatemalan rum which is produced for UK food retailer Marks and Spencer. The notes on the Marks and Spencer led me to believe that the rum was possibly supplied by Cognac Ferrand who own the Plantation brand of rums.
For those unfamiliar with the Plantation brand the basics are as follows. Cognac Ferrand procure (possibly in exchange for the wine and sherry casks used in the ageing of spirits) aged rum from a variety of distillers around the world. They do not publicise who the distillers are (a little research can often narrow the possibilities down). The rum is then usually “double aged” or finished in other casks to give the rum a distinctive profile. So basically they get good rum and give it a bit of a twist. That’s the theory anyway.
