Top review from Jakob:

"Impressive Guyana profile with impressively deep plum fruit and leather en masse. The alcohol is very present, unfortunately a bit too present; apart from that, absolute top class."

Top review from Kevin Sorensen 🇩🇰:

"Despite the price tag I gad to try this release and it didn't disappoint me. The price tag may be high, but is is also an old rum. Nice and fruity on the nose with some leather notes. Once rested even more notes appear. The palate is warm, dry and well balanced. Despite the age the wood isn't dominant but mixes very well with the fruits and floral notes. The finish warm and medium to long and dry with dried fruit and wood."

Top review from cigares :

"Un rhum avec une couleur fonçée, un nez de banane sur-mûre, de rôti, un peu décadent. Une attaque nette en bouche, pas diluée malgré l’ABV assez léger, des arômes disparates de cuir, de fruits. Une finale longue, un peu amère. Verre vide bien plus aromatique."

"Versailles style comes through, but there remains a somewhat own "green" note that wanders between kitchen herbs and tea. Has a somewhat difficult time compared to other 85s."

Top review from Jakob:

"Herausragender Versailles-Vertreter, zählt zurecht zu den Benchmark-Rums dieser Still. Nur die Verdünnung und das damit möglicherweise verschenkte Potenzial für noch mehr Komplexität lässt sich als Kritikpunkt ausmachen - aber hier darf man auch einfach so Freude an einem Destillat haben, das zu keinem Punkt dünn oder wässrig daherkommt. Exzellent!"

Top review from Alex1981:

"Whisky Fair 2023 tasting. Typical Versailles profile with herbal/farmy/woody notes. Still powerful for the old age with a medium long finish. Oily mouthfeel with strong notes. Really enjoyable and distillate driven without any cask influence to distract."

Cave Guildive • Versailles
2012   11yr   59%   €€

Top review from cigares :

"Tasting at J. B. Labat. A full nose of nutty butter, molasses, young leather, prunes and spices. Heavy, dark aromas on the palate with molasses, brown sugar and bitter caramel. The aromas tend to evolve on the palate, which is very interesting, as the bitterness and spice strengthen and disappear in turn. The finish is long but too one-dimensional, with bitter coffee and heavy but not overpowering oak. A very fine release from the Guildive cellar."

Top review from Kevin Sorensen 🇩🇰:

"Another pretty good release from Rum Nation. Try to let it rest for at least 15 minutes and also give it a try with a few drops of water to release all the flavours.The nose is well balanced and fruity with wood, chocolate, molasses and licorice.The palate is lightly bitter and alcoholic of you don't rest it. Wood, fruit, molasses and licorice trailed by a light herbal note. I like the spiciness on the palate that sticks for a while. The finish is long and warm with wood, chocolate and dried fruits."

Top review from cigares :

"A very warm nose with cedar wood, plum, black licorice and dried fruit. The palate is soft and very aromatic, with cedar, black licorice (sweet), dried fruit and a taste of roast veal. I feel transported to my grandmother's kitchen and I'm sucking on black vanilla. The finish is long, with a very elegant woodiness and all the other aromas gently fading away. The empty glass also smells of old leather, vegetal and slightly bitter. A very fine rum, very drinkable and very rich in aromas, even if one could dream of an ABV a little higher."

Top review from Tschusikowsky:

"No rum for the sober palate. The Versailles profiles need with me 3-4cl until they arrive. First impression was not great with all. Later, however, they unfold some complexity. This one still seems slightly watered down."
