A wonderful Bellevue, actually an exceptional one when push comes to shovle. The nose is a wonderful mix of fruits and spices with some rubber and varnish. The palate continues where the nose finishes. A complex and very balanced rum with spices and fruit. On top of that you find caramel, mint and some roasted wood. The finish is long, warm and spicy with spices and licorice and a hint of prunes. Highly recommended :-)

Très bon bellevue ! Des épices présentent tout le long de la dégustation. Un nez sur les fruits, les épices que l on retrouve en bouche. C est complexe car pas mal de goût se mélange ! Au final, bravo à la famille RICCI pour cette sélection !
