“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 :-)”
