Gardel 1992/2003 (42%, Fassbind, The Secret Treasures
Barrels #4, #8 & #121, 1401 bottles, Guadeloupe)
Today I have another legend in my glas. The Gardel distillery was closed 1992 and this is maybe their last distillation. The taste reminds me of trinidad rum (medical notes) mixed with Savanna (grains) and Clarendon rum.
Nice complexity at just 42%, the nose is quite intensive, but in the taste the dilution is noticeable.

The taste starts with anise, some burned sugar and a watery expression. After that the taste turns bitter because of tannins and I get grains and mint. In the middle after the rum became warm there are dirty notes like tar, leather and a medical note with mint and orange peels, at the end are again tannins.
The finish starts spicy with medical note again and grains. At the end you get leather and tar, great.

A beautiful rum, without dilution it would be around 90 points I think. With this dilution it's still not bad but can not compete with current Velier Last Ward or Caronis in cask strength. Therefor 82 point.
I love the dirty notes in the finish, I think Gardel produced a great rum/rhum, but this is now history.
