Plantation Artesenal Rum


The first segment(Mostly not available on google search)

Occasions, Tips, alternates, cocktails, food pairings, SJ's Rating, Feel

SJ's Rating- Middle Shelf
Great for cocktails but not practical for sipping because it has a high ABV of 69%
Occasion- Christmas
SJ's Pro tip- Use 1oz instead of the standard 1.5 oz of this spirit. Why? Apparently, it has almost twice the alcohol content.
Alternates- Khukuri rum from Nepal for sipping
Cocktails- Mai Tai
Feel(After Drinking)- Delighted

The Second Segment(Technical details that are mostly available on google search)

Plantation Artisonal rum, the product packaging is the most confusing thing. It says a product of Barbados but bottled in France. There is information overload but no information regarding where this rum actually comes from or how it is made. 
My guess is that it is a private label but sourced from the Caribbean.  If anyone from plantation rum is readying this I would like them to share the proper information. 
About Plantation OFTD 69, it is crafted/blended quite well had has a unique artisanal taste to it. By artisanal, I mean high quality.
