This rhum is something else. Agricole as the French tradition would have it, it is still distilled in age old pot stills concentrating stronger flavors, that leaves it wanting of nothing, compared to its column distilled counterparts.
There is a special feeling when you get to taste vintage spirits. This 1948 Montebello was one such experience. Flashbacks from an island hardly recovering from the impact of WWII… Like time traveling to a place you can be glad you never saw.
First approach of JM famous aged rums, this is the 2003 vintage.. A wonder to the eyes, nose and taste buds. Personal favorite !
