“Un rhum au profil très contrasté. Le nez se veut plutôt timide, avec des arômes gourmands et concentrés sur les épices et le chocolat. Le boisé est bien fondu dans le profil. S’en suivent quelques notes fruitées, un soupçon de polish et de notes pâtissières. On pourrait s’attendre à un profil linéaire, mais la bouche est bien plus surprenante : des notes florales, des herbes aromatiques, du thé et du thym viennent par surprise et bousculent le palais. Vanille, caramel, fruits secs et ananas se succèdent dans ce profil singulier. L’alcool est bien intégré. En revanche, la finale retombent dans la timidité du nez, avec une longueur très courte et des arômes peu expressifs et très conventionnels (pâtisserie, fruits secs, boisé vanillé, épices douces, cuir et noix). Un rhum très ambivalent, presque bipolaire, un peu simpliste et dans la retenue. Il manque un petit quelque chose pour se démarquer du reste.”

“#4056 A pretty good release from Valinch & Mallet i think. The price is pretty OK and I have ordered a bottle because I like it. Well balanced and the wood isn't dominant and does well with the fruit and light polish/varnish notes. The empty glass is really nice and I can pick up some nougat and salty notes.”
