Plantations Xaymaca Special Dry, revives the quintessential Jamaican style, 100% pot still rums of the 19th century with an expression of intense flavors that reveal the traditional, legendary 'rum funk'. Aromas and flavors of black banana and flambéed pineapple, locally called 'Hogo'.
Xaymaca evokes the name given to the island by its first inhabitants, the Arawaks. This nectar is a return to the origins of Jamaican rum, in all its complexity and intensity. With its latest investment in the Caribbean, Plantation now owns a third of the mythical 'Long Pond' and 'Clarendon' Jamaican distilleries. Thanks to these exceptional production tools, Alexandre Gabriel made his dream of blending a 100% pot still Jamaican rum a reality.
A great golden color in the glass, on the nose its very complex, slightly smoky and meaty with fruit notes, herbal and sour undertones build up. Vanilla comes forward with a cooked banana and ripe pineapple. On the palate this is dry, a classic Jamaican rum, floral and fruitier profile of rose water, pear, grape and apricot, finally allspice, bread and nuts emerge with the finish.
