“No2’s nose is a bit more open and vibrant vs. No3. On the palate I prefer No2 with a bit more fruits while No3 presents itself more dark and woody.”

“#4178 This is a very nice Bellevue. Medium fruity and pretty well balanced. Spicy and warm palate with a long finish. Draws really nice curtains in the glass and the empty glass has some chocolate ans smoky notes. Would have loved it at an even higher ABV 😊”

“Got this sample for free from RumX. It’s a column distilled rum distilled in 1998 at the Bellevue estate in Bass-Terre that produces Rhum Damoiseau and therefore not to be confused with the Bellevue distillery in Marie Galante. It’s aged for 23 years, of which 6 years is made in the tropics and the rest continentally whereafter it’s bottled in 252 bottles at 54,3%. It’s not clear if the distillate is a blend of rum made from cane juice and molasses, but I believe so cause there’s lots of rum from this distillery that is. Anyway I’m pretty sure that its not an Agricole. Overall a rum that have great aromas, but which tastes don’t live up to the it.”
