RX12787 Very good Column Still Rum 482 bottles Above 250€
“Lovely balance, complex honey and herbal notes, but a tad thin.”

Introducing the Montebello Flora Antillarum, a rare and limited release rum from Guadeloupe that has captured the hearts of rum enthusiasts. Produced at the Carrere distillery and selected by the independent bottler Velier, this spirit was distilled in 2002 using a Column Still and aged for 19 years before being bottled at cask strength with an ABV of 41.3%. With only 482 bottles available, this is a unique gem in the world of rum. Users have praised its well-balanced and intense aroma, featuring peaches, vanilla, demerara sugar, tea, and flowery notes. On the palate, they experienced flavors of hay, vanilla, herbal, mandarin, and wood. While some users found the rum slightly thin and expressed a wish for higher ABV, they overall appreciated its complexity and harmonious interplay of fruit, spices, and other delightful characteristics. An extraordinary rum that holds a special place among connoisseurs.

“An old agricultural rum with a very pleasant olfactory profile, oscillating between fruits (tropical, dry and orange), spices, vegetable notes, coffee and caramel, for a very harmonious whole. In the mouth, the rum is very light and sweet, carried by a profile of sweet spices, cinnamon, hazelnuts and almonds, a succinct fruity side and aromas of cappuccino, chocolate, caramel and hay are also felt. The finish is slightly lacking in impact, though citrus, wood, spice, chocolate, and herbal and floral notes come through. A very good rum on paper, but very expensive for the final rendition, which lacks the intensity to be a level above.”

“A very sweet fruity nose! Almost sherry-like!The palate is, although the rum light and thin comes along, quite intense and complex!Fruit and herbs alternate harmoniously!The finish is then again typical Agricole!A good rum, which would probably have been excellent with higher ABV”
