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.

Leider mit stetig sinkendem Niveau von Nase zu Gaumen. Was geruchlich noch wirklich ansprechend startet mündet in einen dünnen, verwässert wirkenden Geschmacksfilm aus Fruchtsäure und röstigen Würznoten auf der Zunge, der bei mir kaum mehr Lust auf weitere Schlücke locken kann. Leider ein wirklich schwacher Vertreter von Montebello.
