RX773 Very good Column Still Rum Single Cask 243 bottles Under 250€

The Kill Devil (The Whisky Barrel) from Bellevue distillery in Guadeloupe is a distinct, limited-edition rum aged for 20 years. Bottled at 58.6% ABV, its complex aroma boasts notes of rubber, smoky undertones, currants, wood, and spices. On the palate, it impresses with flavors of smoky wood, oiliness, mint, and a touch of fruitiness. Noteworthy for its well-balanced profile, users praise its elegant mix of earthy and fruity notes, with a hint of caramel and tar, underscored by a spicy kick. The finish is long and satisfying, featuring pepper, oak, and smoke. A pronounced representative from the 1998 Bellevue vintage, this rum stands out for its depth, balance, and complexity. Limited to just 243 bottles, this rum is a collector’s dream.

“87 points. A very nice Bellevue, one of the best that I have sampled so far. I love the nose, lots of fruit in addition to rubber, some wood and spices. The rum is very nice on the palate as well, a little less fruit but more spices.”

“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.”
