Velier Chamarel Blend 2014 7yr 56,5%

RX698 Very good Column Still Rum 1,140 bottles Under 250€
“Unexpectedly complex; fruity, spicy, with hints of tobacco and wood.”

Introducing the "Blend" from Mauritius, a unique rum produced at the renowned Chamarel distillery and specially selected and bottled by the independent bottler Velier. This limited edition rum, with only 1140 bottles available, was distilled in 2014 from sugar cane juice using a Column Still and aged for 7 years with an ABV of 56.5%. RumX users praise its fresh and fruity nose, featuring notes of vanilla and dried fruit with a vegetal touch. The flavor offers a unique blend of woodiness, reminiscent of whiskey, with spicy, dry, and raisin undertones. Enthusiasts are particularly impressed with its intense and bold palate, complemented by a long, spicy, and dry finish. While some may discuss the price-to-quality ratio, there is no denying this rum sets itself apart with its character and depth.

“This is a wow factor rum, because you don't expect a Chamarel to taste like this. The nose is fruity with spices and wood. Leather, tobacco and licorice and a hint of grass follows. The palate is intense, oily and dry with wood, fruit and spice followed by coffee, tobacco, chocolate and wine. Overall the palate is spicy. The finish is long and spicy with tobacco and raisin. The finish is dry like the palate. Price to quality can be discussed.”

“Solid rhum, but nothing more. That it was bottled by Velier, you do not notice here (the rhum is in no way somehow outstanding), but that should be heartily indifferent in an evaluation of smell and taste. We are not talking about the bottle price here ... So again: Solid bottling, solid 80 points.”

“Eine frische krautig-grasige Nase, mit einer floralen Würze, sowas wie Muskatblüte. Leicht süß von Honig. Etwas fruchtiges, vielleicht leicht Richtung Aprikose. Am Gaumen salzig-süß, würzig mit Anis und Vanille. Aber auch etwas fruchtig, vielleicht in Richtung Sauerkirsche. Kurz kommt etwas bitteres und dann gleich wieder etwas herb-süßes. Eine leicht Mandel Note ist auch zu vernehmen. Im Abgang grüner Tee und grasiges Zuckerrohr. Schöne Geschmackskurve.”
