Despite being labelled as rum this Plantation Single cask would, under different circumstances, be known as rhum - being made not from molasses but instead from sugarcane juice on Guadeloupe. However, the distiller produced more than was allowed by AOC (Appellation d’Origine Controlée) regulations and would thus have had to pour it away had Alexandre Gabriel not saved it and brought it back to France to receive a little extra ageing in ex-Sauternes casks. Only fifteen hundred bottles were produced and the result is a truly unique spirit.
Nose: An initial burst of tropical fruity flavour that has layers of madeira sugar, vanilla, toasted chestnuts and walnuts. There are tones of tobacco and liquorice present as well.
Palate: The subtle complexities of the aroma translate marvellously onto the tongue, the sweetness of the sugar cane juice intermingling with the wood of the barrels and the subtler sweetness of the sweet wine that they once contained. All of it tinged by a large number of subtler, sweeter, sharper and more pointed flavours.
Finish: Very sweet, tailing away, with an aniseed and smoky flavour lingering on the tongue for a time.
Overall: A unique and profoundly interesting rhum that brings a level of joyous and delightful complexity to it that few others manage.
