“Une émotion de boire un rhum vieux, même s’il a passé la majorité de sa vie dans sa bouteille. Un nez très sec avec un léger terreux, de la vanille. Beaucoup de finesse et d’élégance pendant toute la dégustation. Des fruits tropicaux en bouche ananas et banane. Une finale étonnement longue, avec de la canne à sucre, des fruits. Je suis persuadé que le rhum continue d’évoluer en bouteille. En retrait par rapport au Courcelles 1972 à 47% et à 54% qui ont une plus large palette aromatique, mais un très beau rhum tout de même.”

“A very, very elegant Bally. Dryed flower petals thyme-honey. And a nice malty finish. This is really from a different era and is gone in a sense of not being produced anymore. But this is subtle and lovely”
