Carrere Montebello 2000 14yr 50,6%

RX1287 Good Column Still Rum Under 250€

The Montebello rum is a distinguished selection from the Carrere distillery, distilled in 2000 and exquisitely aged for 14 years. Brimming with character, this rum entices with an aroma of cinnamon, dark chocolate, agricole, barrel, and papaya. On the palate, it unfolds languid layers of dark chocolate, nougat, dried fruit, and a refreshing tang of lemon. Despite its gracious high ABV of 50.6%, it smoothly slides down the throat, leaving a noteworthy trace of light bitterness. As RumX users highlight, this rum truly embodies balance while emphasizing its unique agricole notes and spicy hints. The Montebello rum is recommended for those who appreciate a fine blend of fresh and aged rum with a sophisticated fusion of flavors.

“Have had this 14yo Montebello from the Carrere distillery for a while and now it was time to test it. The Carrere distillery is quite young. They started up 1930 and from 1966 it has been operated by the Marsolle family. It’s vintage 2000 bottled 2015 at ABV 50,6%. There’s just 1250 bottles blended from four different ex bourbon casks. It’s extremely elegant and smooth and it’s actually quite hard to understand that the ABV is 50,6%. To feel the elegance of this rum it’s in my opinion important to keep it for a while in your mouth before you swallow.”

“After buying the 10 year old I had to try this one as well. It's fresh and the Agricole notes are there as well. A well rounded yet light rum in the flavour profile. Fruity with spices and a hint of nougat on the palate. There is also a light bitterness on first contact with the palate but it subsides with the following sips. In my opinion the 10 year old is better balanced than this one.”

“Unfortunately, with a steadily declining level from nose to palate. What starts really appealing smell leads to a thin, watered-down taste film of fruit acid and toasty spicy notes on the tongue, which can hardly entice me to take more sips. Unfortunately, a really weak representative of Montebello.”
