HSE The Beauty and the Beast Finish Kilchoman 2017 5yr 50,1%

RX18065 Good Rhum Agricole AOC Single Cask Under 250€
“Dark chocolate, citrus, mint, balanced peat, surprising and pleasant experience.”

HSE The Beauty and the Beast Finish Kilchoman is a compelling rum from Martinique's Distillerie du Simon. Matured for 5 years and 6 months, this rum boasts a 50.1% ABV. The nose offers notes of vanilla, woody aromas, chocolate, and honeycomb, complemented by a subtle hint of glue. On the palate, expect a unique blend of woody, minty, and chocolate flavors with undertones of citrus and grapefruit. The whisky cask finish imparts slightly peaty, smoky notes, adding depth to its character. This intricate balance of agricole notes and whisky influence creates a distinct experience, though opinions vary on its peaty finish. Ideal for those seeking a bold and complex rum with a touch of adventure.

“Wow, nasty trap! While the rhum initially evokes associations with the strong Saint James bottling for the 10th anniversary of Excellence Rhum (RX18129), after a few minutes in the glass it can't hide the two peaty whisky casks, so that I have trouble finishing the glass. As a result, my rating curve goes from 83 points on the nose to 80 points after the first two sips to just 70 points on the finish with the last drops. So only 74 points on average. I don't need to have it in my glass again.”

“Au nez un rhum avec un finish whisky tourbé. En bouche, un whisky avec un finish sur un rhum agricole. Ca ne plaira clairement pas à tout le monde mais si la tourbe est ici dominante, l'agricole sait lui résister et rester perceptible. Etonnant et agréable.”

“An der Nase zuerst etwas Torf, Klebstoff, eine süße von Bienenwachs, dunkle Schokolade und Holz. Am Gaumen dann noch etwas Minze dazu Florale Noten und Tee. Die Süße von der Nase geht eher etwas in den Hintegrund. Mir wirkt er zu unrund.”
