Belize 7 yo ‘Prime Minister Edition’ Plantation
The Rum : Belize 7 yo ‘Prime Minister Edition’ by Plantation for The Nectar (Belgium) – 43 abv
Distilled: ca 2006
Bottled: 2013 – cask 2/6 – 450 bottles. Late Harvest Cask Finish
Nose: First impression is cognac, but also some very nice fruity notes: tropical fruits followed by peaches. Soft herbal with a little whiff of vanilla. Soft nose without any aggressive alcohol. After a good 15 minutes in the glass a delicate floral perfume with more vanilla now.
Taste: A rather strange but very pleasant mixture of sweet raisins, banana (pisang), chocolate with nuts and even some smoke. In the middle of the palate a little bitter note that quickly drowns in the overall sweetness of the rum.
Finish: Retakes all the flavours of the taste, being a little less sweeter and more wood influence. Long finish.
Our score :*** For not even €50 this is a stunner indeed.
Remarks: A very pleasant rum from a small nation that surely deserves its place on the rum map. This 7 yo shows great maturity. I suppose this is a sister cask of the Belize 7 yo Late Harvest bottled for Juuls Vin & Spiritus?
