The Perle 2020 from the small Martinique distillery A 1710 is still produced according to the same method that has made it a success since the very first vintage: harvesting the cane by hand, exceptionally long fermentation of 5 days, distillation in small stills...

Nico's tasting note
The nose is incredibly greedy, and captures us with its generous roundness. The cane is very ample, very ripe. We retain its mellowness, but also its rich aromas that explode out of the glass. The profile is deeply vegetal and candied, with surprising notes of very ripe tomatoes.
With aeration, the rum comes out of the cane bark a little, taking us to a rich, moist soil, full of sweet, organic spices. The vegetation returns to its rightful place after a little rest, with aromatics full of oil and chlorophyll.
The palate is rather lively, but never burning. We are dealing with a hot rum, which applies its cane juice on the palate in a rather implacable way. It falls in fiery clouds of pepper, pickled vegetables and a slight mineral sensation.
The finish is rather spicy, and rich aromas of fresh cane come through in retro-olfaction.
"A very natural rum which imposes the character of a determined and voluntary cane...".
Superb, floral, vegetal, dry or ti just a sure thing. Sugar cane and nothing else
