Rum Nook: Assessment 102 – Bielle 2007 Brut de Fût 7 yr previous

Picture borrowed someplace. Please contact me if it is yours, so I may give you correct credit score.

One other smashing, reasonably priced rhum.


After a tiny hiatus spanning Christmas and New Years after which some, let’s make a journey again to Marie Galante. You understand, that
small island which is virtually a part of Guadeloupe.

Earlier I’ve checked out a Rhum Rhum, which was spectacular
and an indie Bielle, which was alright, however not nice.

However other than promoting inventory to indies, Bielle additionally bottles
a few of their very own stuff.

For extra details about Bielle, please check with their web site listed on the
backside of this evaluate.
They’ve a full line of rums spanning from white unaged
rums to liquers to vieux rhums and hardcore bottles of brut de fût.
So after attempting a few borderline Bielles, I believe it’s
time to attempt a real Bielle, and see what they’re able to.
For the experiment I’ve chosen the Bielle 2007 Brut de Fût.
Why? As a result of I had an opportunity to attempt it not too long ago, and thought
it was fairly good. Sadly the tiny style I obtained, was not massive sufficient to
correctly assess the factor, so I went out and sourced a correct pattern.
It was distilled in 2007 on a creole column after which aged
for 7 years earlier than it was bottled at 57,3% cask power in 2014. No
filtration, no color, no nothing. Simply rhum.
After which there may be the remainder of the entire approach rhum making
works on Marie Galante, which I touched within the Tres Hombres Bielle evaluate. I’m
not going to repeat something aside from essentially the most superior phrase I realized in
2016: Phytoremeditation.
As with many different rums, you get a card board tube together with your
Bielle 2007.
It is available in a yellowish, golden color and has a little bit of textual content
written on it, however largely simply the identify, provenance and age. On the again there
is a brief passage concerning the rum with a few notes and a bit reward.
However nothing too critical.
The identical goes for the labels. Similar information as on the tube – entrance
and again.
The rum it self has a pleasant amber color and it barely clings
to the within of the glass when given a slight swirl.
Initially it comes off a bit sharp on the nostril, however with
typical agricole traits.
Mild fruits with bitter apples and inexperienced grapes, surrounded
by huge piles of freshy lower grass.
Beneath lies a layer of heat oaks, with cinnamon and a
little pepper.
On the extra delicate aspect there’s a good presence of mint as
effectively as some flowery notes.
Not essentially the most broad nosing expertise, however nonetheless very, very
First an excellent spherical entry with plenty of treacle and cane
Then it evolves right into a melange of darkish chocolate, liquorice
and virtually ripe oranges.

Whenever you assume it has nothing extra to supply, you all of the sudden
discover a flowery degree of sunshine rose and 

Tremendous recent, fruity and feisty, and simply extraordinarily effectively
balanced and attractive.
Very first thing that occurs is plenty of warmth, which then begins
to die off.
Because it dies off it reveals some good flavours of orange peel
and bananas.
A little bit afterward within the progress a bit menthol is added.
Score and closing
All in all an attractive rhum.
It begins off a bit weak on the nostril, however greater than makes up
for it with a curler coaster journey of warmth and flavours.
Extraordinarily tasty and quite a lot of good enjoyable alongside the best way.
The proof feels excellent. It packs a punch, nevertheless it nonetheless
very manageable.
At a worth of simply €90 – and I do imply simply – you get a
very, superb bottle of rum. As I’ve skilled with fairly a number of agricoles,
worth for cash is superb.
And in contrast with their molasses counterparts, I need to say
that agricoles are likely to carry out higher for his or her worth.
So by all means, for those who like increased proof rums and don’t
thoughts agricoles – or need to experiment – give it a shot. You are able to do loads worse
for €90.
Coming to a conclusion I’ve to confess, that I’m beginning to
significantly favour the rhums. They’ve a fragile nature, a lightness and a
complexity which it’s important to look very onerous for to get within the rum-world. And
for the costs they go for, they don’t have a lot competitors from common
Certain, you’ll be able to at all times go for a loopy funky Jamaican or a
supermassive Demerara, which brings one thing fully totally different to the
desk, however when dabbling round and taking possibilities, my cash can be on
agricoles much more sooner or later.
The Bielle 2007 was an incredible encounter and other than a
barely weak nostril, I’ve no motive to shout at it. It was simply superior.
