Despite the price tag I gad to try this release and it didn't disappoint me. The price tag may be high, but is is also an old rum. Nice and fruity on the nose with some leather notes. Once rested even more notes appear. The palate is warm, dry and well balanced. Despite the age the wood isn't dominant but mixes very well with the fruits and floral notes. The finish warm and medium to long and dry with dried fruit and wood.

Alors la, un grand merci au stand RumNation. J'ai pu goûter ce superbe rhum. Profil typique d'un vieux Versailles bien sombre. Superbe. On m'a dit qu'il y avait un finish whisky speyside (comme celui du diamond 2005), c'est super bien intégré avec le reste, ça ne dérange pas du tout (après, pour être franc je n'en vois pas non plus l'intérêt...)
