This image is of a 70cl bottle which will be updated once I get some bottles delivered to me.
Bologne Reserve Speciale is a relatively new product at this distillery. Aged at least four years in used cognac barrels, and bottled at 42% ABV, this aged rhum agricole delivers a balanced spirit without any rough edges. The first thing to notice is that the used cognac barrels don't dominate the flavor of the rhum but rather enhance the smooth sugar distillate character of the rhum. The vegetal notes of the blanc are muted delivering a smooth sipping rhum with a lingering slightly wood finish. French oak barrels tend to deliver more soft nutmeg and vanilla notes and less smoky oak notes typically found in rums aged in used American whiskey barrels. Depsite the fact that this is aged in used cognac barrels there is no sugar added this aged rhum agricole.
When I originally got the label approvals for this rhum the US didn't allow 700ml bottles to be imported. Everything has taken longer than expected so these are liter bottles. I may import 700ml bottles in the future but for now, it's liters only.
