N- On the dark side, medley of monk fruits, hawthorn, soft herbs, nutty, dark raisins and hints of rubber, resinous and fully tan, heavily roasted wood. Water drawn out fresh leaf, grassy earth, smokes, tropical stone fruits, longan, mineral, exotic and sweet. (22/25)
P- Robust and big, rush of tannin, espresso, with sticky dried dark fruits. Rubbery oak, with interesting dash of salt. (21/25)
F- Long, heavy and full with hefty oak, dry and spicy as it should be. Burnt rubber smokes lingers. Ripe dark fruits, highly drinkable (which not often) with dash of chilled water. (21/25)
Balanced:- Plenty of rubber and highly resinous, not for faint hearted. (21/25)
Weighted Rate:- 85pt
Il s'agit d'un rhum proposé par Luca Gargano fait à marie galante, plus précisément à la distillerie bielle.
Il a bénéficié d'un vieillissement de 6 ans dans des anciens futs de sauternes.
Le nez est dominé par la banane verte et la canne fraiche.
En bouche l’attaque est douce et les agrumes prennent le dessus. On sent bien la signature marie galante.
Le final confirme les fruits exotiques avec une légère note de réglisse.
Un rhum intéressant pour les amoureux de rhum agricole.
Had to bring this home after trying it at an agricole tasting. Matured in previous white wine casks and bottled just right at 45% vol.
It’s tremendously aromatic on the nose with notes of caramelised buckthorne, cinnamon and herbs, especially mint. There’s also a rubbery and salted note alongside cedar wood. Very complex and extremely enticing.
The taste is big bodied and explodes with juicy grapes, toasty wood, and once again hints of that caramelised buckthorne. Cinnamon and cedar wood lingers on the finish for a little while.
This rum is intense, think port mourant level, but still drinkable at the same time. It’s very uniqe and might not be for all, but I’m in love here.
Soft, easy to drink, and fun - fruit gums - taste. It does have oak at the end, and also a melange of fruits. Totally unique style from Marie Galante, amazing!
Enjoyed a bottle of Rhum Rhum Liberation 2015 Rum while in London. Unique label design. Very expensive for what it really is. Light golden color indicating very little added ingredients. Very dry rum and definitely a burn at the end. Floral notes are the most prevalent making this a very dry Rhum Agricole.
58.4% ABV. N: a bit hot at first, then warm. Caramel-y brine. Same on the palate. Pleasantly prickly and complex. Long finish.
Just lovely. 9.
With an amber color, this rum exudes candied fruit notes, almond pastry notes and exotic fruit such as banana. On the palate, the vegetal and floral side of the plant is quite present. With a very short finish, we arrive on a final woody, fruity and spicy. Real rate : 7,5
Peut être un peu trop attendu, trop entendu mais pas si transcendent. Pas assez de rondeur, un rhum un poil trop "saccadé". Une belle longueur forestière mais manque de fruité. A comparaison je préfère directement la gamme Bielle.
Définitivement pour les amateurs de rhum mais aussi d'armagnac, de marc (ce rhum me fait vivement penser à une eau de vie de Marc portugaise - Adega Velha).
Aussi grand qu'un Caroni. Fabuleux.
My friend thought this was reasonable. I gave it several tries over the course of an evening of rum tasting. I could not stand it. Overpowering chemical hit from the get go, with nothing to redeem it.. Add to that the hefty price tag, and it becomes impossible to recommend.
I hate to give this a low rating given its reputation, and a high rating from another knowledgeable member, but I'm truly disappointed.
