91 points for Versailles 1985 36yo from WhiskyNotes.be

 

WhiskyNotes rated our rum Versailles 1985 36yo Enmore MEV Platinum from Greenheart Collection at 91/100 points.

Nose: hints of diesel and eucalyptus, mixed with a sauce of garden herbs (chives, parsley). Fresh oak shavings, as well as fennel seeds, verbena, subtle hints of black olives and a whiff of wholegrain bread. Carbon paper. Pine resin. Complexity is really high here.

Mouth: even more flavours fighting for attention. It’s quite dry and definitely tarry, with hints of liquorice and petrol. Something citrusy in the background, then back to olives in brine, white pepper and pencil shavings. Pine needles, walnuts, kippers, but also marmamalde and drops of cough medicine. Quite endless.

Finish: very long, still rather medicinal, on resinous notes, olives and coastal elements. There’s a funky fruity note in the background as well.

I like this better than the Versailles MEV 1990 I had from the same Greenheart Collection. Very complex rum, a great example of the saline austere style.
Score: 91/100

Greenheart Collection set with Platinium
