How does this rum taste?

A finely balanced J. Bally Art Déco from Martinique impresses with a fruity nose and a touch of elegance. While some find the palate less intense than the aroma, the long, woody finish with subtle citrus and spice notes pleases many. Aged complexity at a good value.

“Compared to the second release this one lack a bit. It is of course a younger model, but it can still keep up I think. Lightly woody with fruits from nose to finish. Lovely spices appear on the palate and finish nicely balanced with chocolate and caramel/toffee. There is a flowery hint i there and a medicinal hint i can't put my finger on. Price to quality is very good.”

“Un très bel assemblage de J. Bally. Le nez est très fruité, à mi-chemin entre les fruits secs, les agrumes et les fruits exotiques. La canne à sucre, le bois et les épices confèrent au rhum un bel équilibre aromatique et une certaine vivacité. Un rhum prometteur sur le plan olfactif. L’attaque en bouche est plus amère et alcoolique. On retrouve les épices, le bois, les noix et le cacao, accompagnés de fruits (bien plus en retrait) et de canne à sucre. On a un ensemble équilibré et bien élaboré. Il manque toutefois la fougue du nez pour être au même niveau. La finale est plus sombre, sèche, boisée, terreuse et végétale. On retrouve quelques fruits secs et des agrumes en arrière-plan. Le profil est plus dans l’esprit de la maison. Un rhum de qualité et bien structuré, mais le nez demeure un cran au-dessus du reste. Le rapport qualité / prix de la cuvée est très bon.”
