ISAUTIER 2006 l’Elise Rhum Vieux Agricole Antipodes


Single Cask #10-352012 – Cognac Cask
Limited edition of 580 bottles
An LMDW exclusive

Founded in 1845 by Charles and Louis Isautier, the oldest distillery still operating on Réunion Island is equipped with two column stills used to produce a molasses-based traditional rum and a cane sugar juice rhum agricole. Named L’Elise after one of the last boats still used by Isautier to transport goods, this agricole version is filled with fruity, spicy, floral and herbaceous sequences that act all as separate entities. Despite the strength brought by these individual flavour and aroma traits, it nonetheless has a wonderful unity of tone whose fullness is matched only by its maturity.

Tasting Notes

Colour : Deep burnished gold.

Nose : Fresh, ethereal. Exotic (plantain banana, persimmon, guava), roasted (coffee) and floral (hyacinth, honeysuckle), the first nose also reveals notes of candied citrus fruits (orange, kumquat, mandarin). Allowed to breathe, warm cane sugar spreads across the surface of the aroma palette. Increasingly hot (Espelette pepper), it is also deliciously vanilla and nobly woody (beeswax, cedar).

Palate : Lively yet creamy. With great presence, the attack reveals amazingly pure flavours of sugar cane. On the mid-palate, cocoa powder and grated ginger softly coat the taste buds. Then, with time, flavours of dried flowers (carnation, geranium, iris) draw out the end of the palate up until the finish.

Finish : Long, heady. Staying united with the end of the palate, the start of the finish is abundantly fruity (Mirabelle plum, pear, walnut, date). The slightly tannic end of the finish develops a more empyreumatic register (hot tar, black liquorice, pipe tobacco). Staying close to the sugar cane, the retro-nasal olfaction is subtly woody. The empty glass is then chocolatey and infused (coffee, red tea).
