Depaz Cuvée des 100 ans du Château 45° : Description and customer reviews

In 2022, Depaz rums celebrates the 100th anniversary of the reconstruction of the magnificent Château Depaz. Located at the foot of Mount Pelee, it was destroyed along with the city of Saint-Pierre during the volcanic eruption of 1902.
In 1922, Victor Depaz undertook to bring the family estate back to life.

For the occasion, a unique cuvee was created by the cellar master, Nora Carrion-Martinez. The 2011, 2013 and 2016 vintages were selected in 10 barrels of 200 liters and then assembled to create 1400 numbered bottles. These rums have aged between 6 and 11 years in the distillery's cellars. The barrels selected are mostly American, with 2/3 of red barrels and 1/3 of new barrels.

Only 300 copies of this magnificent bottle are available for export. This makes it a very limited edition.

Nico's tasting note

The nose offers a nice woody garnished with fatty nuts, such as peanut, almond, walnut, hazelnut ... The ripe cane comes to rest on the oak, adorned with some fresh nuances of eucalyptus, it opens the way to a wind loaded with fruit.

The aeration leads us to a cigar box with elegantly exotic wood essences, encrusted with fine spices and tobacco. The cane juice, now candied, takes on these golden aromas with delight.

On the palate, the sweet spices and wood engage in a duel with the cane juice and its pepper. This entry is invigorating and typical of the AOC Martinique style. Another typicality: this meeting is done elegantly, with the right amount of character but without burning. The result is a gently peppery syrup, loaded with blond tobacco, with some fresh coffee beans.

The finish is peppery and full of weathered cane juice.

"A meeting between the juice of cane and wood, which is typical of its tradition...
