Sehr, sehr komplex. Warmer Gummi, viel Cassis, rauchig. Voll. Super Mundgefühl und sehr gut integrierter Alkohol.

Limited to a mere 243 bottles, this one is better than the 18 year old. The nose is very well balanced and kind of heavy with a tad of smoke. The rubber and spicy side of Guadeloupe is definitely there and so is the fruitiness. The palate is sweet and heavy/thick and it draws nice curtains in the glass. Oily with mint and pepper followed by spices and smoky wood. Spicy kick there as well. The finish is medium long to long with pepper, oak and smoke.

Le nez est gras et terreux. On retrouve de la réglisse et des notes d'olives. C'est plutôt frais et puissant. On valide, passons à la dégustation ! En bouche l'attaque est chaude. Le fruité du nez s'y retrouve (prune, datte ...) ainsi que du caramel et du goudron. La finale est plutôt complexe sur le boisé et l'orangette. Il est franchement sympa ce Guadeloupe ! Belle sélection mais moins gourmande et en deçà du Nobilis dégusté il y a peu.

Blindtaste: Two 1998 vintage Bellevues. Kill Devil 20yrs 58,6% (exclusively for TWB) Rum Artesanal 24yrs 59,4% C: - (used a painted copita) N: 5min. This is the Kill Devil. Easy too! Elegant and vegetal. Alcohol is still not settled but I also get peach marmalade. 20min. Now! Sliced tinned peaches in dense and extra sweet syrup. Fresh medium strong coffee. Can it get better? Yes, fumes of petrol too. Lovely nose! I also get lemons, but not even close to the Rum Artesanal levels. M: There is two flavours that battles for supremacy. The coffee and, listen to this, burn dense peach syrup. All so very sweet. Good taste but the nose is so good! F: Long full of coffee and veggies. B: Maybe. Ridiculous price though. Btw I think the hype behind the 1998 Bellevue vintage is thanks to Serge.
