Longueteau Constellation White Edition 2022 57,5° : Description and customer reviews

This Longueteau Constellation is a white rum elaborated in limited edition for the Route du Rhum 2022. This race which connects Saint-Malo to Pointe-à-Pitre takes place every 4 years and brings together a large number of skippers ready to take on the ocean.
Given the success of the first Constellation in 2018, it was obvious for Longueteau that a new one was needed.

This rum is a blend of two distillates parcels. The plot n°1 planted with red cane benefits from a maritime climate and the plot n°7 planted with blue cane is subject to a rather humid climate.
This blend has benefited from a rest of 8 months, which has allowed a reduction as slowly as possible until reaching 57.5°.

17,400 numbered and screen-printed bottles have been produced for this 2022 edition of the Route du Rhum.

Nico's tasting notes

The nose is immediately enveloped by a cane juice that explodes heavily in silky, almost creamy notes, garnished with red fruits. Longueteau never fails in its mission to offer the best white agricultural rums. It's all there: from sweet cane to ripe fruit, through an elegant pepper and a velvety rum impression.

With aeration, we have more access to the depths of the rum, to its heart, and thus to the fermentation of the juice. One discovers at the same time sour and sweet notes which breathe the soil and the fermentation tank. In the line of the creamy notes interviewed at the beginning, we find sometimes a delicate tint of milk chocolate.

The palate is as silky as the nose suggested, while living up to the expected level of expressiveness. A real discussion with the cane follows, with vegetal explosions, a minerality perfectly balanced by a certain roundness, lime peels sometimes bitter, sometimes candied... In the middle of the mouth, we come back for a moment to the earth, then to the cane peel, to pepper, to better dive back into the sweet fiber

The finish is very round, full of fiber and candied pepper, with a hint of cut grass and sweet-spiced milk chocolate that settles into the length.

"A superb success from Longueteau, with this white rum that literally has everything going for it..."

    A superb discovery 👍🏻

  2. Philippe Cloetens

    Constellation is a wonderful discovery. Low risk because it's an excellent brand

  3. Didier THOMAS

    Here, beware, there's a level to it. A nose of great aromatic intensity, very fresh and greedy at the same time. Explosive, powerful, concentrated but controlled on the palate. An iron hand in a velvet glove. It's a pity, however, that the palate is a little too marked by cut grass and a little earthiness due to the slightly volcanic terroir. To compensate, there's a wonderful, round, warm finish with an irresistible hint of milk chocolate. A tasting rum for connoisseurs, to be left to breathe and enjoyed at the right moment accordingly........
