Stupendo! Ricco di profumi e al sapore si sente una torbatura marcata avvolta da un'acquavite fruttata e olive. Finale lungo. Sto rimanendo sorpreso da alcuni rum bianchi che sono fruttati, ma con un carattere deciso ricco di sfumature grazie a delle buone fermentazioni. Tenendo conto del rapporto qualità prezzo questo rum è da prendere assolutamente in considerazione. Spesso ho speso il triplo per rum mediocri. Questo distilleria è l'unica al mondo che macina con un mulino ancora funzionante ad acqua. Canna colta a mano e fuoco per distillazione alimentato con i resti di canna. Fermentazione con lieviti autoctoni. Un rum alla vecchia maniera.

Un rhum plutôt exceptionnel pour ma part. On tombe directement sur une canne super fraîche bien fermentée (Végétale /Agrumes / Olive verte / poivre vert), une puissance digne des jamaïquains avec des fruits tropicaux (Banane / Ananas / Mangue) le tout rôti, fumé et épicé (Muscade / Girofle) de plus on retrouve des notes empyreumatique (Caoutchouc / Tourbe / Vernis / Cuivre / Esters) il y a même, pour couronner le tout, une petite gourmandise inattendu (Pain grillé brioché / Beurre / Mielle) Bref un ovni de blanc, ca part dans tout les sens,c'est puissant, bon, aromatique, exubérant ! 👌

Kommt kräftig in der Nase an, wie ein „dreckiger“ Agricole der länger offen neben dem Smoker mit den Spare Ribs stand. Das Geschmacksprofil ist ziemlich funky, fruchtig und hat etwas von einem gepferrtem Ribeye. Pur etwas zu viel Torf/Erde wie in einem Whisky, aber in einen Daiquiri integriert er sich extrem gut.

verkostet mit meiner Clairin Referenz, dem Sajous 2016. Der River Antonie besitzt ein ähnlich sensationelles Profil wie der Sajous. Der Sajous ist eine Nuance frischer und fruchtiger, der River Antoine kommt noch mehr von der erdigen Seite. Der Unterschied verstärkt sich noch am Gaumen, wobei der River Antoine im Abgang noch eine fleischig-rauchige Note aufweist. Für mich dem Sajous absolut ebenbürtig!

Une claque qui se laisse prendre sans modération. Et qui plus est un rhum qui évolue beaucoup.

The distillery founded in 1785, still produce their rum as it was done back in that time. The cane is crushed by a waterwheel driven mill. It’s wild fermented. They don’t use any temperature control and the double retort copper pot stills is heated with dried Bagasse. Finally it’s bottled straight from the stills. They use sugar cane juice instead of molasses, but it’s not an Agricole cause they use different methods. Overall it’s a funky rum rich on esters and congeners. It’s probably not for everyone, but I just love everything around it and I think it beats the Jamaican white Overproof’s.

Un’esplosione di vegetali al naso, sembra di essere dentro un orto, pomodoro in maggiore evidenza. Anche caucciù e colla. Appagante al gusto, morbidezza in bocca

Spannender weißer Rum. Tolle Rauchnote! Im Daiquiri der Hit! 🍸

Krass! Sehr ähnlich und auf Augenhöhe mit den guten Clairins. Nase: vergoren und sehr vegatibel. Fast wie abgestandenes Blumenwasser (da waren garantiert Geranien drin) aber etwas lieblicher. Spargel- und Kohlrabiwasser mit einer Honig-Süße. Herbe Papaya. Essig-lastige Ester. Gaumen: die 69% sind da. Dadurch wirkt er fast cremig. Er kommt salzig-bitter-süß. Wieder sehr vegatibel und grün. Vielleicht etwas Richtung Gurke und Olive. Aber sich fruchtig ist er, hier vielleicht eher Richtung vergorener Himbeere. Hinten raus wirkt er sogar leicht rauchig mit kaltem Tabak. Super interessant!

Beau nez riche et floral. La bouche est exubérante avec des notes fumées et tourbées. On a l'impression de déguster des fruits de mers accompagnés d'un Islay.

Einfach Wahnsinnig intensiv. Definitiv ein must have für jeden Rum Liebhaber. Irgendwie total rund und gleichzeitig dreckig das muss man hinkriegen 😀 Hoffentlich renovieren die da nie 😅 Da können sich viele gelagerte Rums was abgucken. Auch wenn man das nur schwer vergleichen kann. Dringende Empfehlung! Mit 69% natürlich sehr intensiv. Gleich ein Daiquri 😋 Geiles Zeug!

69%, der kommt mir ordentlich Wumms Un die Ecke! Umso überraschender, wie angenehm der Alkohol für einen weißen Rum in dieser Größenordnung daherkommt. Sehr komplex, im Mund fast cremig, der lässt sich auch pur ohne Probleme genießen. Im Daiquiri eine Wucht, da macht er richtig Spaß, dafür würde er wohl auch hergestellt. Neben dem Rum Fire, den ich an den meisten Tagen noch eine Spur besser finde, meine Wahl für den Daiquiri!
