“die #2 aus dem Rarities Kalender. An der Nase Kokosnuss, Fass und eine dezente Fruchtigkeit in Richtung Orangensaft und Mandarine. Am Gaumen habe ich Muskatnuss, die in altes Fass (Tannine) übergeht. Mit der Verdünnung fehlt leider etwas der Tiefgang, gerade weil mir der jüngst verkostete Raconteur (mit seinen 61%) noch recht präsent ist.”

“RumX Rarities jour 2. Un nez de la Barbade avec des fruits tropicaux, coco, mais aussi des fruits jaunes, poire et pomme. Un léger vernis. La bouche est douce, les arômes se développent harmonieusement, beaucoup de fruits et le bois est discret, tout comme l’alcool (mais ce rhum n’a que 40%). La finale n’est pas très longue, harmonieuse comme l’ensemble de ce rhum très agréable. Le verre vide est plus sur le bois et une amertume qui donne du relief aux fruits.”

“Un vieux Millésime de chez Foursquare, dont le premier nez m’avait fait penser à un rhum agricole assez sec mais avec des notes pâtissières très marquées sur le toffee, la brioche, le caramel, le sucre brun et le biscuit. Le profil gagne en boisé, en épices, en chocolat, en agrumes et en fruits secs après aération. On rentre dans les cases d’un Foursquare plus généraliste. L’attaque en bouche est très gouleyante et accessible. La dilution en fait un rhum facile à appréhender mais qui manque de corps et de caractère. L’esprit de Foursquare est toujours présent avec la noix de coco, le caramel et les notes sucrées, le chocolat, le boisé et les épices douces. La finale est courte, assez fine et n’a pas beaucoup d’impact, même si on retrouve globalement les marqueurs de la distillerie. Un bon rhum pour se détendre ou faire découvrir un autre univers à des néophytes, mais qui perd de son potentiel avec la dilution.”
