This is a nicely balanced Labbé and I think the price is pretty good. Well balanced on the nose and intense and complex on the palate. It did need to rest for a good while before all flavours were released. Lightly fruity and I like the nutty touch and the licorice on the finish. The empty glass was really nice after a few hours 😊

Sehr schöne, tiefe Farbe. In der Nase viiieeel Eiche, Lakritze, Keksteig und erdig. Politur und Lösungsmittel. Nach hinten raus ein Hauch getrockneter Früchte und Kirsche. Sehr kräftig, wuchtig und staubtrocken. Sehr gut. Im Mund dann nur Holz und Gewürze. Schöner Abgang, Keksteig, Lakritze und getrocknete Früchte. Ein paar Tropfen Wasser machen ihn etwas cremiger. Sicherlich kein lieblicher Gaumenschmeichler. 20 Jahre tropische Reife machen sich bemerkbar, die Holzigkeit ist an der Grenze, vor allem im Mund. Mir gefällt er aber sehr gut.

An der Nase zunächst recht verhalten. Nach etwas Standzeit kommen dann altes Fass und erdige Noten, dazu Muskatblüte, Mokka, Feige, Karamell und Pflaume. Am Gaumen dagegen sofort präsent und intensiv mit Gewürzen, Fass und einem interessanten Wechselspiel zwischen etwas Richtung Ingwerschärfe und Dattel, dazu ein sehr langer, röstiger Abgang. Ein klasse Rum, dessen Charme sich nicht gleich offenbart!

Rimasto molto deluso! Il legno sovrasta tutto! Una pronunciata amarezza in tutta la degustazione! Gli darò una seconda chance per vedere se la prima impressione era sbagliata!
