This is yet another great Flibuste, not up to the 1986 version, but still pretty darn good. The nose is a clear Agricole with spice and fruit to it finished off with a bit of oak. The palate is wonderful and fruity with spices and a tad of licorice. A bit sweeter than the previous releases. A long lingering finish and no wonder why many score this one in the high 90s. I will not go that far because I compare it to the 1986 release.

Nez : Boisé avec beaucoup d’épices et caramel Bouche : L’attaque est douce et gourmande avec une complexité de saveurs : Miel, Vanille, Poire… Finale : Moyen, mais super rond avec des notes de réglisse. Je trouve ce millésime 1997 bien meilleur que le 1992. Mais par contre, toujours en deçà des cuvées des années 80’. Le passage de 30 à 23 ans de vieillissement doit avoir un lien. Mais cela reste un bonbon en bouche et c’est un rhum de plaisir dans lequel on aime s’y replonger agréablement.

Rhum complexe et gourmand. Premier nez très boisé, puis s’ouvre sur du caramel et des épices pâtissière. Après une petite aération la vanille et le sucre roux apparaissent. En bouche on retrouve les notes du nez avec du fruit exotiques confits, des épices, le tout dans un caramel au beurre. La finale n’est pas extrêmement longue mais toujours sur le bois doucement épicé et fruité.
