FAIR 11 year old Single Cask
Rum, Belize, 70cl, Ref: 19841
This venerable version of Fair Belize is still produced from sugar and molasses from the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers cooperative. Eleven years spent ageing in casks have given it a particular luminosity which makes its olfactory expression more like a single malt than a rum. It is as though its woodiness has voluntarily taken on a Hispanic feel so that it can better express its exuberant exotic flavours.
Profile: an ode to exoticism: geranium flower, mango, persimmon, guava. The woody, heady nose is more like a whisky than a rum.

- Appearance : old gold with glints of coppery orange.
- Nose : heady, sunny. Heady florals, mustard seed, lime, clove and black pepper give the initial nose intense luminosity. Tasted blind, it would be easy to mistake it for a single malt aged in a sherry cask. It evolves with Bourbon vanilla, the fragrance of bougainvillea and sugar cane. At the same time it becomes delicately woody and saline.
- Palate : simultaneously firm and smooth. It begins by continuing the heady sequence of the nose. The mid-palate, however, quickly opens up to let us admire and, above all, savour delicious sugar cane juice. Immaculate azure blue permeates the scene. An inspired, luxurious exoticism releases the perfumes and flavours of geranium flowers, mango, persimmon and guava.
- Overall : long, creamy. The finish offers not only sweet notes of patisserie but also delicious passion fruit and red kuri squash fritters. Powdered spices rain down at the very end of the palate. The retro-nasal olfaction is saffron-scented and deeply exotic. The empty glass remains sunny and warm.
