Tasting NotesStarts assertively with a noticeable alcohol aroma, swiftly giving way to a citrus medley dominated by lemon and grape juice accents, with a subtle vinegar hint. Background notes of fresh-cut grass and a peculiar blend of salty, sour sensations are complemented by a mineral water freshness. Exceptionally smooth on the palate, it introduces acidic mineral hints. The taste mirrors the nose, featuring an array of flavors including grapes, lemons, candy, lemonade with a mild sweetness, banana leaf, and cucumber. The concluding notes are largely herbaceous, with grassy tones and a suggestion of green onion, evolving into mint, sour candy, lemons, and a pronounced grapefruit finale, supported by persistent grape undertones.

Pere Labat 59 hails from Distillerie Poisson, a distillery steeped in history and situated on rich limestone and volcanic soil. Known for its "minimal intervention" approach, the distillery has been producing fresh cane juice rums for over a century. This specific rhum is made from local cane varieties using a column still acquired in the 1970s. The rhum is rested in wooden foudres for 10-15 days after distillation before being bottled at a local proof of 59%, using local mineral water. The brand Pere Labat is an homage to 17th-century production methods, a nod to the rich heritage and timeless quality of this exquisite rhum agricole.
