A very handsomely presented decanter-style bottle of Plantation Extra Old rum from Barbados. Unusually, the rums are initially aged in the Caribbean in ex-bourbon casks, before being transported to the Charente (home of the bottlers, Cognac producer Ferrand) and undergoing a second maturation in small French oak casks. 94 points from the Beverage Testing Institute in Chicago.

Distilled at the Val-de-Travers according to traditional distilling methods. The herbs used to distill this Verte are all obtained from the Val-de-Travers region, which contribute to Absinthe Bizarre's characteristic and unique taste. A Verte from the Val-de-Travers is always something special.
This Absinthe is based on a recipe from 1889. It has a dark green color, the taste is flowerish with significant notes of green anise and hints of vanilla. It is distilled with wine alcohol, what gives this Absinthe a brandy like smell. Overall a pretty good French Absinthe.
