Now this is some good stuff
Like the two other distillers on MG - namely, Bellevue and Bielle - this captures the essence and terroir of the local cane flavor in a pronounced way. Specifically, that 59% (118 proof) grassy fire and and those trademark citrusy notes, which all three distilleries highlight in very different ways (and means). It's a fine 59, but for the value (~10 euro) and glue-like aftertaste, I prefer Bielle or even Bellevue 59s. It is a unique take on the high proof MG rhum agricole, certainly worth tasting, but maybe better as a mixer in a planter's punch.
Bought a bottle of Pere Labat Rhum Blanc 59 while vacationing in Guadeloupe. Unique bottle and label design with minimalistic concept, very well executed. Traditional super dry Rhum Agricole flavors are complemented with grass, citrus fruits, floral bouquet and spices to the nose and palate. Strong and dry burn at the end. Rhum Agricole fans boys can easily add 2 points to my score.
Marie Galante produit certainement les meilleurs rhums de guadeloupe.
Le père labat et ses 59 degrés est parfait pour le Ti punch.
Au nez on sent la canne à sucre
En bouche c'est puissant et aromatique. On sent qu'à 59 degrés il y a des arômes spécifiques qu'on ne retrouve pas à 40 j'imagine.
Smell is like a sugar cane stick kick in your face, very strong. The taste again, very strong on the sugar cane, with a little bitterness to the end. Also, very smooth at first, you forget about the 59%, but toward the end the alcohol kick back a little bit.
Great in Ti Punch or I can imagine to make Rhum Arrange, but as a sipper, I have tried some better white ones.
Rhum agricole blanc de Marie-Galante titrant 59.
design : basique.
Nez : très parfumé, canne et fruits.
Bouche : canne à sucre suivi par l'alcool et une certaine amertume.
On sent les 59°.
Longue finale végétale.
Ce rhum est très aromatique, parfait pour les ti punch.
