Very Good Rhum Agricole
5 Nov '17
Rhum Vieux Millésime 1999
Brut de Fût
Country of origin: Guadeloupe (Hope Distillery)
Very sweet and flowery at first nosing with notes of sugarcane. In the following aromas of fudge, leather, floor polish, nutmeg and cinnamon are coming up with additional fruity aromas (raisins, dates, prunes and plantains).
Sweet and herbal-medicinal like salmiac pastilles. Acacia honey, plantains and avocados. Then becomes spicy with notes of vanilla, tannins and nutmeg.
Spicy with a dry oakyness and a bitter finish (salmiac pastilles).
Beautiful amber color with a first nose on sugar cane but around coffee and nuts as well as exotic fruits. In the mouth, the vegetal and the floral disappears to leave the place with spices with a very long final. Nice millésime from Karukera only produced with blue sugar cane and without any cold filtration.
