JAMAICAN RUM 12 years old 2003 - 60th Anniversary LMDW 55,4%
Rhum De Melasse, Jamaica, 70cl, Ref: 52146
Located in southern Jamaica, the Monymusk distillery (also known as Clarendon) makes pot still rums using a long fermentation process, which can vary from 14 to 30 days, in wooden vats, and lighter rums distilled in column stills using a short fermentation method (24 to 30 hours). With great precision, this 2003 vintage develops layer upon layer of olfactory attributes that are in turn mirrored by the gustatory palette. Delicious flavours of vanilla, chocolate and lemon become increasingly marked.
Profile: Somewhat unusual, the nose is fruity (apple), exotic (guava), milky (almond), spicy (curry), vegetal (cut hay) and camphoric. A note of burnt rubber slips into the core of the aromatic palette. The palate is rich, aromatic (vervain) and mentholated. The finish is mouth-watering.

- Appearance : bright yellow.
- Nose : lively, original. On one side of the aromatic palette, fresh fruit (pear, apple), figs, exotic fruits (pineapple, guava) and almond milk can be detected, and on the other, strong spices (pepper, curry powder, nutmeg), cut hay and camphor. Notes of burnt rubber and tiger balm draw a line between the two to clearly separate them. Marvellously succulent, the fruit eventually gains the upper hand.
- Palate : clean, clear. Indulgent, the attack wavers between flavours of vanilla, crème brûlée and lemon meringue pie. The mid-palate pushes fresh and delicate notes of herbs (lemon verbena, sage) into the spotlight. Little by little, lemon zest and peppermint accentuate its intoxicating nature.
- Overall : long, very firm. The same lemon zest contracts the palate and stimulates the taste buds. Lulled by a slight salty, liquoricey and chocolatey bitterness, the finish is extremely delicate. The empty glass radiates freshness and fruitiness (pear, lemon, walnut).
