BIELLE 2001 Small Batch 45%
Rhum Agricole, France / Marie Galante, 70cl, Ref: COL19739
To help us better discover its deep character, this bottling draws on a sequence of olfactory and gustatory scenes, each more evocative than the last. Pure moments of grace and pleasure, the splendid scenes which bring us from the darkest obscurity to the brightest clarity, and from the most exuberant luxury to the most well-established classicism, are in reality the melodious lyrics of a song dedicated to the glory of sugar cane.
Profile: lively and firm. Notes of red fruit (red currant, raspberry), black liquorice and heady florals. Warm, deep nose.
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
- Appearance : deep copper with glints of bronze.
- Nose : warm, deep. Evoking sugarcane, an initial olfactory sequence also offers heady florals (geranium, rhizome), camphor and spices (clove). Noble wood, tobacco and dark chocolate then create a second, very smooth olfactory sequence. Then a third, particularly exotic (mango, passion fruit) aromatic sensation, overflowing with dried fruit (date, toasted walnut) brings us back to spices.
- Palate : firm, lively. Boasting remarkable acidity, the palate draws a gustatory line that travels far, almost reaching the gates of the finish. On the way, it reveals notes of red fruit (gooseberry, raspberry), black liquorice, candied liquorice, heady florals and ginseng. Cocoa powder gradually covers the taste buds. Tannic, the end of the palate is also velvety and full of exuberance.
- Overall : long, silky. Notes of emery cloth underpin the poetic beauty of a decomposing woodiness. Both crepuscular and light, with a timeless, crazy charm. Generously offers delicious rum babas and pineapple. The retronasal olfaction is jammy (quince, rhubarb), while the empty glass is medicinal (mustard plaster) and floral (tuberose, lilac).
- The brand
Founded at the end of the 19th century on Marie-Galante, the ‘island with a hundred windmills’, the Bielle distillery upholds a tradition of producing agricultural rum from pure sugarcane juice, and has gradually evolved with successive proprietors. It is located on the ‘Bielle’ section of a plateau at an altitude of 110 metres. Respectful of the environment, the Bielle distillery has adopted an ecological approach that uses a natural process of evaporation through plants.
