To me, this is such an excellent rum and the balance from cross ageing it in both french and american oak works wonders. You get a rum that's agricole-like and elegant and sure it's a tad dry, but still a softer expression compared to the "classic" agricole profile.
The nose is intense with vanilla, peaches, cinnamon and marcipan alongside hints of oak. Real nice, sweet and welcoming. As the production of this rum pretty much resembles agricole, I was expecting the taste to be leaning towards the more tannic side, despite the sweetness of the nose (which is no downside for me)
This is however, in my opinion, not a particular dry rum, despite a few raters claims. Sure it's natural and unsweetened, but hey, this is what real rum taste like, and if you think it's bad or dry, perhaps the reality of it is that you actually like sugar water more than rum? (no offence intented)
The taste is rounded and almost sorta creamy with almonds, cinnamon, caramel and dried fruits. The finish keeps at it, with a well behaved oaky note. The balance is great.

Mám pro rumy z Mauritiusu slabost a tohle je asi nejlepší pití, které jsem z tohoto ostrova pil. Druhý rum z kalendáře, u kterého mám v plánu koupit celou flašku.

Goldenes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase wie eine fruchtig herbe Briese vom Meer. Papaya, Banane und Ananas werden auf Holz serviert und mit Medizinkräuter garniert.
Im Gaumen weich, warm, süss und mundfüllend. Karamellisierte tropische Früchte und Vanilleeis schmeicheln die Zunge. Rote Beeren mit harzigem Holz bilden einen harmonischen Kontrapunkt.
Im Abgang süsses Karamell und Früchte, die Mauritius typischen Medizin Kräuter bleiben länger.
Ein toller Rum mit einer perfekt ausbalancierter Süsse, für Einsteiger und Fortgeschrittene.

Golden amber in a glass.
In the nose like a fruity tart breeze from the sea. Papaya, banana and pineapple are served on wood and garnished with medicinal herbs.
In the palate soft, warm, sweet and mouth filling. Caramelized tropical fruits and vanilla ice cream flatter the tongue. Red berries with resinous wood form a harmonious counterpoint.
In the finish sweet caramel and fruits, the Mauritius typical medicine herbs remain longer.
A great rum with a perfectly balanced sweetness, for beginners and advanced.

... von einer kleinen Insel im indischen Ozean - Mauritius. Die Destillerie Chamarel existiert erst seit neun Jahren, produzieren für diesen kurzen Zeitraum jedoch wirklich ausgezeichneten Rum. Die Destillerie kann besichtigt werden, ist jedoch im Vergleich zu anderen Führungen relativ teuer (Degustation kostet zusätzlich). Nun zum Rum, welchen ich in unserem Hotel degustieren durfte:

Ein sehr ausgewogener und komplexer Tropfen, bei welchen man die Vanille-, Honig- und Birnenoten sehr gut herausschmecken kann. Nicht soooo süss, dagegen sehr fruchtig und ein wirklich guter Rum um diesen pur zu geniessen!

Greift zu, es lohnt sich.

Dobry rum, ktery je v chuti nekde na pul cesty mezi agricol a klasickym melasovym rumem.

My family have some history with Mauritius and hating rum. As a rum-lover I feel like it is my duty to combine my familys love with my own.

Nose: Vanilla, oak, cloves and a faint hint of lemongrass
Taste: Vanille, orange, oak, cloves, smoke and lemongrass with a slight funky feel
Overall: This is not a mindblowing rum, but it is very tasty. It is not a rum for the beginner, but if you are a lover of whisky, but want to try out rum, then this one would be a great starting point.

Bought a bottle at the distillery in Mauritius and sat in cupboard for a year. Really enjoyed it and would recommend for anyone that likes a sweeter and caramel flavour
