ISAUTIER 2005 L’Apollonie Rhum Vieux Traditionnel Antipodes


Named L’Apollonie after one of the first boats owned by the Isautier brothers who founded the distillery, this traditional version has a more extroverted character than the 15 year old agricole version also found in this creation catalogue. In turn exotic, heady and hot, its palette of aromas and flavours additionally heads to empyreumatic and nobly woody lands. Representing the two sides of one coin, L’Apollonie and L’Elise pay witness to expertise that dates from the mid-19th century.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Topaz.

Nose : Fine, rich. On the first nose, candied ginger, dried apricot and vanilla aromas play the leading roles. Increasingly spicy (clove, black pepper, nutmeg) and heady (carnation, honeysuckle, dahlia), the aroma palette gradually takes on beautiful honeyed and herbaceous shades (camomile, sage, tarragon). Laid end to end, these notes form an especially harmonious ensemble.

Palate : Lively, elegant. Very unlike the nose, the attack heads to the kingdom of citrus fruits (orange, lemon, mandarin) as cane sugar delicately coats the palate. The more candied mid-palate (ginger, persimmon) wavers between camphoric notes and the strong spices from the aroma palette. The rich end of the palate reveals marmalade flavours.

Finish : Long, silky. The particularly silky finish is softly chocolatey and floral (bougainvillea). At the end of the finish, oily notes of pipe tobacco flood the depths of the taste buds. For its part, the retronasal olfaction highlights the quality of the perfectly integrated wood. The empty glass is exotic (banana), floral (iris), resinous (pine) and spicy (ginger).
