“Auf dem 11. GRF verkostet und sich danach noch 5 cl als Sample abfüllen zu lassen war ein MUSS. Wann hat man so etwas schon mal im Glas? Götternektar. 😋😋😋”

“Ein kleines Highlight. Im Jahr der Schließung der Destille destilliert und 35 Jahre gereift. Mein bisher einziger Rum aus der Domaine de Courcelles. Nase: solch ein Aroma hatte ich bisher noch nie im Glas. Intensiv Kirschkoghurt mit Marzipan. Dahinter feiner Lavendel-Honig und überhaupt sehr blumig, fast ein bisschen Parfum-ähnlich. Viel trockene Vanille kommt hinzu und hinten wird er wachsartig und würziger. Elegant und schön. 89 Gaumen: sehr elegant, konzentriert und intensiv. Bitter-holzig, ohne wirklich bitter zu sein. Sehr Würzig mit Vanille, Lakritze und auch umami. Fette Pekanuss. Daneben süßlich-fruchtig, wieder mit Kirsche aber auch mit getrockneter Blutorange, getr. Dattel und getr. Feige. Neben all den eher gedämpften Noten hat er aber sich etwas frisches, kräuteriges mit Kamille. Zum Ende kommt auch noch etwas Gras und Safran hinzu. Sehr schöne Geschmackserfahrung. 91 Ein Rum, dem man sein Alter an der Ausgeglichenheit und der Komplexität anmerkt. In kleinster weiße holzig, tolle, ungewöhnliche Aromen. Eine seltene Schönheit, das kann man wohl sagen.”
