El Dorado Albion 2004 Rare Collection 60.1% 2004
Gal Granov (85)
Color : Mahogany, really oily rum… it seems heavy
Nose: Fruity, really fruity with banana, apricot and some coconuts.
Camphor, eucalyptus, caramel, chocolate, iodine, thiny wood, tabacco, roasted bread and caoutchouc ends the pleasant nose.
It smells like molasses but not too much… just what’s needed.
Palate: a vivid and sweet attack … it really sticks to the teeth this stuff!
Molasses, caramel burned, toasted, the bitterness of blood orange, it’s really generous.
Menthol and milk chocolate come back as well as vanilla notes.
The alcohol is rather well melted to the whole.
Unfortunately, the rum is present but tends to go out quickly enough even, if it leaves us a small rubber tip relatively familiar with the Albion.
Conclusion: A very fragrant and generous nose and a mouth quite consistent with this first one.
After the lack of length is pity … but it’s still a very pleasant moment.
