Grasige Agricole Noten, leicht an Grappa erinnernd, etwas junges Holz, Gewürze, Haselnüsse mit Schokolade, minimal fruchtig nach Traube und Mirabelle, dazu extrem trocken. Der Alkohol ist ganz gut integriert aber ne Offenbarung an Komplexität ist das nun auch nicht gerade.

Kommt nicht ganz an den 2001er Saint James ran, aber hat trotzdem ein wirklich spannendes Aromenspektrum im Angebot - im Vergleich zum grossen Bruder fehlt den dunklen Früchten aber etwas die Kraft.

Un rhum décomplexé, très bien fait et ce qu'il faut en gourmandise, delicious👌
