To get a Mezan which finally hits the spot.

A little extra punch to this one. A complex and nicely made Latin style sipper great just on its own

I was curious what this brand could offer as they claim : "untouched rum". Well, considering the generally pale colors of their rums and absence of suspicious fake-sugar-sweetness it seems to be honnest.
It offers good complexity and flavours (not sure how to describe them but I found some unusual aromas - I would say fruity ?). Well balanced and quite different from what I tasted so far. All in all I found it very pleasant and I will certainly try some other Mezan bottles.

J'étais curieux de voir ce que proposait cet embouteilleur vu leur slogan : "the untouched rum". Cela parait plausible vu la couleur généralement pâle de leur gamme et le fait qu'ils ne distribuent pas de ces rhums dont le côté sirupeux est plus que suspect...
Celui-ci est très sympa je trouve, assez complexe et bien équilibré mais avec quelques parfums que je n'ai retrouvé dans aucun autre rhum. Je ne suis pas sur de savoir les décrire (un côté "fruité" ?) donc je vais éviter d'écrire des âneries... Au final c'est un bon rhum que je trouve intéressant et très agréable. Du coup je vais essayer d'autres bouteilles de chez Mezan.

....compared to the 1995, the disappointment with this knocks it down one. Bottled at 42.2% (as opposed 40% for the 1995) it is just not as smooth, easy or refined as the 1995. That extra 2.2% of alcohol is presumably the culprit. Still lovely rich fruit on the nose and palate, accompanied by great use of oak, but it's just a bit too firey.

Edit - on reflection, this is a very good rum. Not as oaky or soft as the 1995, but not fiery as mentioned above. At the moment (and it changes frequently :) ) this is one of my favourites. Will be buying another bottle in the very near future.
