Velier Chamarel Indian Ocean Stills 2014 4yr 58%

RX955 Good Column Still Rum Under 250€
“Elegant nose, tropical and wood flavors blend, spirited yet smooth.”

The "Indian Ocean Stills" rum hails from the Chamarel distillery in Mauritius, chosen and bottled by independent bottler Velier. Distilled in 2014 using Column Still from sugar cane juice, this 4-year-old rum boasts an ABV of 58%. Users have noted its pleasant nose, featuring vanilla, Mirabelle plum, cognac, peaches, and anise. The diverse palate brings forward flavors of anise, vegetal, raisin, salty, and young wood. While some users believe that additional aging would have enhanced the overall experience, this unique expression has been widely appreciated for its distinct nose-palate contrast and the presence of agricole-like notes at a good price-to-quality ratio.

“Not bad, but a rum too expression- and profile-less. Could probably have used a few more years of storage - especially in the mouth, the alcohol still stands out noticeably even after some time in the air, the rest of the bouquet is pleasing, but too interchangeable. A pleasing drop, not a highlight. There are more interesting from Chamarel, although at least so far primarily rums of comparatively younger age (and also rather rarely in barrel strength) are bottled there.”

“This rum was spectacular in the way that the nose was significantly different from the palate. The nose is light and elegant with tropical fruits, grass and some vanilla. The palate on the other hand is fruity with a warm touch and a lightly smoky wood flavour. The finish is fruity with chocolate and a very light pinch of barrel. Price to quality is very good.”

“A nose of mirabelle plum where I find the alcohol very present. In the mouth I find the alcohol too present and not well enough integrated. I'll try to leave it aired for a while to see if it needs it.”
