Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Longueteau produces some of the best whites, very sippable and complex. The cane from the sunny Parcelle 1, gives this Rhum a very distinct character. The nose is fruity, brimming with mango and white chocolate. It's quite potent in the mouth with citric and vegetal notes, sea salt and white chocolate. The peppery finish lingers with a tickly, spicy sensation in the cheeks. Impressive.
Longueteau offers here a rum from their first parcel of land. There are 12 parcels with either blue or red sugarcane. Some of them near the sea and others more inside the island. The aim is to make us discover the differences depending on the location of the cane field and the variety used. At the time of this post, there are versions n °1, n °4, n °9 and n °11 for the French La Confrérie du Rhum. This one is very vegetal with fresh sugar cane and also foral and mineral. On the palate, we have a sweetened almost gourmet feeling and a salty note not iodized.
Visited the Longueteau Distillery while vacationing in Guadeloupe. Hands down the best distillery tour and completely open tasting bar. Longueteau Blanc Parcelle No 1 was priced at EUR 35 per bottle. Nice old school styled bottle and label design. Sweet Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with grass and salt to your nose and palate. Mild burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 2 points.
Que dit-je, un très grand blanc. Des notes florales, de la menthe poivrée et de la clémentine, en bouche l'alcool un poil trop présent heureusement facilement effacé avec un petit glaçon. De la race des grands, le 1er concurrent crédible au Neisson 52,5, juste une touche en dessous mais pas très loin.
sugar cane juice. dry. 55%
i smell the base of rhum blanc. citric, grassy tunes and a little bit of peppar.
i taste the same with the citric in the front and the pepper in the back. salty. full aroma. nice body, clean spirit with silky body.
9/10 - drop 8 points if you like it sweet!
it´s the brother of the same rhum from parcelle 9. both are single field rhums. no mixture with other fresh sugar cane from other parcelles. still the same distillery. the pc has more notes of pepper and the citric tunes going in the back.
