Evaluate: Stiggins’ Fancy Plantation Pineapple Smoky Components

When Chris reviewed Plantation’s Pineapple Rum approach again in 2015 (now generally known as Stiggins’ Fancy Plantation Pineapple Rum), he argued that the Queen Victoria pineapple infusion of Plantation’s normal Barbados-sourced rum was a bit heavy-handed and one dimensional. Nicely, there’s a restricted version of this rum on cabinets now. How restricted? No thought. Dubbed Smoky Components, this rum takes normal Stiggins’ and ages it for an unspecified time period in 200 liter oak barrels that beforehand held Teeling Distillery’s Blackpitts, a peated Irish single malt that we fairly loved over at Drinkhacker HQ. Can a eye-catching whiskey cask enhance issues for Plantation’s Stiggins’ rum? Let’s discover out.

The ending seems to have been fairly transient on this one as a result of the aroma is just not precisely indicative of smoke and nothing near peat. It’s nonetheless fairly candy with brown sugar and juicy pineapple notes, however the ending has at the very least restrained a number of the extra saccharine parts of the unique. The palate hits with a wholesome, torched sugar sweetness and muddled, virtually watery, pineapple notes. Regardless of the promise of extra nuance, this one stays a one trick pony within the taste division apart from a fragile, ashy word of matchheads that glints on the midpalate earlier than being overwhelmed with wealthy Demerara syrup and extra candied pineapple. A bit extra nuanced than the unique. However solely a bit.

Nonetheless, it’s a tremendous mixer to your subsequent poolside drink. And for what it’s price, the value is fairly cheap for each expressions.

80 proof.
