Una buona espressione di montebello! Molto ricca e fruttata ma mi sarebbe piaciuto sentirlo con più gradi..la resa sarebbe stata migliore!

Eine sehr süßlich fruchtige Nase! Fast schon Sherryartig! Der Gaumen ist, obwohl der Rum leicht und dünn daherkommt, ziemlich intensiv und komplex! Frucht und Kräuter wechseln sich harmonisch ab! Der Abgang ist dann wieder typisch Agricole! Ein guter Rum, der mit höherem ABV wahrscheinlich excellent gewesen wäre

Un vieux rhum agricole au profil olfactif très agréable, oscillant entre les fruits (tropicaux, secs et orange) les épices, des notes végétales, de café et de caramel, pour un ensemble très harmonieux. En bouche, le rhum est très léger et doux, porté par un profil aux épices douces, de la cannelle, des noisettes et des amandes, un côté fruité succinct et des arômes de cappuccino, de chocolat, de caramel et de foin se font également ressentir. La finale manque légèrement d’impact, bien qu’elle soit marquée par les agrumes, le bois, les épices, le chocolat et des notes herbacées et florales. Un très bon rhum sur le papier, mais très cher pour le rendu final, qui manque d’intensité pour être un niveau au dessus.

Wird mir insgesamt etwas zu süss-sauer, was ich auf die Verdünnung des ursprünglichen Destillats zurückführe. Zunächst mit schöner Komplexität aus Früchten, Honig, Nougat und Gewürzen - hintenraus aber eben zu dünn und fast schon verwässert, was den Zitrusfrüchten im Zusammenspiel mit der Süsse zu viel Gewicht verleiht. Schade, denn für mich bleibt die Vermutung haften, dass hier mit mehr ABV auch geschmacklich mehr möglich gewesen wäre.

sehr schöne ausgewogene Nase. Mir kommen getrocknete Blumen, Pfirsich, kandierte Früchte, frische Kräuter. Am Gaumen röstig, Kräuter, Fass, Mokka. Leider auch deutlich wässrig. Schade, denn so kommt er nicht ganz an die beiden Velier Basseterres heran.

Another rare bottle and I didn't get one and the sample had to suffice. A lovely rum with nice balance and intensity. I like the wood and spices mixed with the light fruit and other notes.

Für mich der beste Rum aus der Serie, auch wenn er leider ein bisschen dünn wirkt.

Hammer Nase direkt nach dem Einschenken, sehr ähnlich zu Courcelles 72. Dann am Gaumen leider wie erwartet bei den niedrigen ABV zu dünn und auch etwas zu bitter. Trotzdem eine interessante und leckere Abfüllung.

Honig und Kräuter. Sehr entspannt zu trinken, trotz des niedrigen ABV fehlt es aber nicht an Geschmack.

Nase ist unfassbar intensiv und fruchtig geil. Geschmacklich dann sehr trocken und holzig, sowie nach Heu und grüntee... Überzeugt mich nicht endgültig. Mir etwas zu bitter, säuerlich dünn und holzig
