BALLY 17 ans 2000 Brut de Fut The Chronicles Of
Rhum Agricole, France / Martinique, 70cl, Ref: 55074
Located in Le Carbet, in west Martinique, this distillery was bought in 1917 by Jacques Bally. It ceased production in 1974. Today, this rum is produced at the Saint James distillery. The very talkative aromatic palette of this 2000 vintage is also particularly complex and deep. Its very dense flavour palette highlights a spicy character, whose power is rivalled only by its nobility. Finally, in the grand finale, a finish characterized by precious wood gives it a truly elegant poetic dimension.
Profile: the delicate initial nose is floral (rose), liquorice and exotic (mango). Allowed to breathe, it becomes spicy (ginger), elegantly woody (beeswax) and chocolatey. The concentrated attack is unctuous and powdery (cocoa). The very floral (tuberose) mid-palate is also spicy (star anise). The assertive finish is fruity and floral. Quince jelly and notes of forest floor (dead leaves) gradually cover the taste buds. Exclusive to LMDW.

- Appearance : mahogany with glints of orange and copper.
- Nose : fine, delicate. At first, rose petal, leather, candied apricot, a fine film of liquorice, emery cloth and exotic fruits (mango, guava) generously feed a very charming oxidation. Subtle, it becomes increasingly warm, with geranium blossom, root ginger, sugar cane, beeswax, dark chocolate and cocoa bean. It lingers with herbal notes of mint tea and orange blossom.
- Palate : rich, concentrated. Full of energy, the attack shines through the quality of its unctuous, powdery (rice grain) and spicy (ginger, cinnamon, clove) texture. The very floral (vetiver, tuberose, iris) mid-palate is heady. At the end of the palate, this feeling of fullness is enhanced by the arrival of strong spices (star anise, cardamom, saffron). It continues with notes of cocoa bean, coffee bean and exotic fruit (passion fruit, persimmon).
- Overall : long, assertive. With lots of presence, the slender finish reproduces the floral, fruity character of the palate. Overflowing with lyricism, it reveals fine dust particles trapped in a ray of light. Gradually, orange blossom, apricot honey and quince jelly fill the air with notes of forest floor (cep, dead leaves) and red fruits (raspberry, strawberry). The retronasal olfaction is fibrous (sugarcane), tarry and fruity (wild peach, candied apricot). The empty glass stunningly evokes an American rye whiskey.

Produit top mais emballage transport nul. La boîte était endommagé ce qui correspond à un préjudice pour un collectionneur. Cela arrive régulièrement avec les envois de LMDW
