Ce rhum me pose problème : je n'arrive pas à décider si je l'aime ou non. A chaque dégustation, une nouvelle impression. Le nez est toujours sensiblement le même : raisin, bois, épices. On sent que l'on a à faire à un agricole. En bouche, le raisin est très présent. Le boisé est fort. Le rhum est sec, lourd. Il est à mi-chemin entre les agricoles de tradition française et certains mélasses Jamaicains ou du Guyana. Mais, souvent, je lui trouve une amertume très désagréable. Celle des peaux de raisins. C'est frustrant car lorsque je n'ai pas cette sensation, j'adore sa puissance. Le rhum gagne très clairement à s'aérer TRES longtemps. Nouvelle dégustation et cette fois il m'a paru vraiment bon. Bizarre ce rhum.

Sehr dunkel, rauchig, Klebstoff lastig und die ersten Minuten fast schon Schweiß artig an der Nase. 🙈 Dann kommt etwas wie Wacholder, Menthol, Ledersattel, Tabak, Honig und Schokolade durch. Fast schon Armagnac artig und sehr trocken und Holzbetont. Nicht unbedingt meins aber Sau spannend!
