The Whisky Jury Bellevue 1998

24yo / 54.4%

Region: Guadeloupe
Cask: Refill barrel

Scoring: 90/100

Nose: also quite full-bodied, this time on overripe bananas and mango chutney. Black olive tapenade as well. Tiny hints of tar, with nail polish at the very opposite side of the spectrum. New plastics and nice earthy touches. Close to cask #10 bottled some time ago, perhaps a little sweeter though.

Mouth: quite hot, same classic mix of bananas and pineapples that should have been eaten yesterday. Still these varnished, tarry and lightly petroly notes. Also beautiful herbs and peppermint candy, with liquorice sweets and caramelized nuts underneath. Lime and the other fruits keep shining throughout, really good.

Finish: long, on sweet herbs, mint, bananas. Grassy notes in the end.

Bellevue is always a great example of the mildly funky but very rich profile. This cask really grew on me and came across nicely fruity in my opinion, but I must admit I didn’t get to compare directly to #10.
