This Père Labat 2004 vintage rum has been aged in oak barrels for 13 years at the Poisson distillery in Marie-Galante.
Nico's tasting note
The nose is very generous from the outset, but also well framed by a solid, serious and robust woodiness. It's a rich honey that spreads out on a waxed oak with encaustic, in a rustic, almost farmhouse atmosphere, tinged with animal notes.
With aeration, the very ripe cane begins to sparkle above the glass, showing heavy golden and honeyed reflections. The rum then takes on a more vegetal side, with aromatics, tobacco, and even a certain minty freshness.
On the palate, we discover a complex and greedy rum, with a very mature cane, covered with dozens of layers of patina. We find our waxed wood, as well as notes of herbs and greenery, all bathed in a burning sun. This is how the rum becomes candied and the tannins stretch into dried fruits, olives, tobacco...
The finish is very greedy, pastry-like with nice exotic and melted spices.
"A beautiful representative of the Guadeloupean style, which offers an extra touch of class..."
There is no opinion yet.
