Bally 2002 is a vintage agricultural rum born on the volcanic soil of Saint-Pierre, in the Cabret estate. This AOC rum distilled from pure cane juice has benefited from an exceptional harvest. After more than six years of maturation in oak barrels, Bally 2002 has softened and enriched with a beautiful aromatic palette.
Bally 2002 won a gold medal at the 2013 Rum Fair.
The colour of Bally 2002 is amber, almost coppery.
Its nose is discreetly expressed through woody notes that give way to vanilla as they develop.
On the palate, Bally 2002 offers a round attack before gaining in strength to fill the palate with spicy and woody notes. As the tasting progresses, the rum changes from a dry tone to a more fruity and vanilla character.
This Bally 2002 will not leave anyone indifferent. A rum that is out of the ordinary.
A beautiful mahogany colour.
It has a nose that I have never smelled before. When you close your eyes, you feel as if you are in the middle of plantation fields or on a walk in the forest. There are strong herbaceous, floral and slightly woody notes. Then, we find the sugar cane.
On the palate, this is a complex but balanced rum. Moreover, there is a nice coherence between the nose and the mouth. We find the woody and floral notes. However, its spicy side appears in the mouth and is perfectly integrated. This rum has a nice roundness.
This 2002 vintage is very interesting. It will appeal to lovers of complex agricultural rums. An excellent quality/price ratio. It is a rum to be tasted absolutely.
Personally, I prefer sweet or even syrupy rums, and I was seduced by this rum which evokes nature and shows that agricultural rum can produce exceptional rums.
