The Whisky Jury Bellevue Rum Guadeloupe (TAST‘TOE) 1998 23yr 53,2%

RX11276 Very good Column Still Rum Single Cask 245 bottles Above 250€

The Rum Guadeloupe (TAST‘TOE) by The Whisky Jury, distilled at Bellevue, offers a unique tasting experience. At cask strength, this 23-year-old rum boasts a complex nose with camphor, musty wine cellar vibes, and evolving vegetal notes including pressed sugarcane and corn. A touch of tropical fruits and Indonesian spices like nutmeg and ginger root add depth. On the palate, expect a robust woodiness balanced with tropical, vegetal, and spicy flavors such as pepper, anise, and ginger root. The finish, medium-long and warming, teases with lemon black tea, mint, and geranium notes, reminiscent of kombucha. This limited edition rum, matured in bottle and aerated properly, reaches its full potential and complexity, providing a rich, balanced, and unforgettable tasting adventure.

“When I opened this bottle first, it boasted an incredibly dense profile, not portraying much else than musty wine bottles in a damp cellar. I didn’t think too much of it, didn’t particularly like it, and perhaps was even left a little disappointed. Looking at all the other ‘98 Bellevue reviews, I figured I had to be doing something wrong. After racking the bottle for a while, I realised this rum needs bottle maturation and excessive amounts of aeration (>hour) to reach its full potential. And what a beast it has become. On the nose it opens with camphor. Cool, musty and flowery aromas that slowly evolve into a more vegetal profile with pressed sugarcane, corn and red rhubarb. It’s sweet and sour with a mix of tropical fruits and a subtle sweetness; heavily seasoned with Indonesian spices (think nutmeg and ginger root). It’s extremely complex, yet surprisingly still well-balanced. In the mouth lots of wood, then tropical mix before dispersing into vegetal and spicy notes: peppers, aniseed and ginger root. It’s tannic and reflects many old red wine factors. Again very complex. The finish is medium long. Hot in the throat. Playful with lemon black tea, mint and geranium. Perhaps a bit kombucha-like.”
