Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I tried a dram of this and WOW! The first thing that came to mind was " Where's that cigar I saved for a special occasion". This was indeed a special occasion. I found this rum to be simply outstanding especially for the price. It goes way past notes of this, that or the other thing. It's superbly phenomenal!
Bellevue Distillery 1998
Aged 17 Years
Cask No. 94
One of 202 Bottles
Country of origin: Guadeloupe
Color: Dark Amber
Very sweet like MAOAM chewing sweets with dark berry aroma (blackberries, cassis) and fudge.
Dark berry jam, bananas and fruit salad ... a real fruit explosion and a superb nose.
Slightly sweet and spirituous with notes of green bark, little smoke and spices (pepper, cloves).
Simple, not very intensive ... does not keep the promises of the nose.
Medium long and dry with notes of black tea and cardamon in the aftertaste.
