Einer der besten Rums aus Martinique!

Another lovely rum, fresh and woody with spices and dried fruit. There is a light floral note in the background. Medium dry with chocolate, tobacco and coffee. Would have loved one of these in my collection.

Die Nase birgt erstmal eine der intensivsten Lack- und Politurnoten, die ich bislang in einem Rum erlebt habe. Dahinter kommen nach und nach frische Fruchtnoten mit Kakao und Muskat zum Vorschein, gepaart mit Holz und Röstnoten. Etwas milder und ausgewogener als der 99er Brut de Fut.

Alkohol sehr gut eingebunden, komplex, ausgewogen- großartig!

En dégustation comparative avec le 1999. Celui ci est plus fin, frais et complexe je dirais. Les arômes tendent sur des fruits jaunes au nez. Excellent également. Des bally tout simplement exceptionnel.

Très beau rhum, très complexe, dur à lire, mais ample et très bien fait.
