Très riche et très fort en bouche. Laissez le précieux liquide quelques minutes dans votre verre avant de commencer la dégustation car il a une très forte odeur d'alcool!

Là, on quitte les retours fruités pour du gourmand capiteux et liquoreux ! C'est si intense qu'on a l'impression de lécher le tonneau directement !!

Smagt på Romhattens romfestival i Århus august 2020. Udemærket men ikke bedre.

Great rhum agricole aged in bourbon casks. Not super complex so it could be a six overall, but given the low price I add two bottles easily. This bottle has also earned medals in the French Concours général agricole.

A sweet scent of aged rum strike you first, with caramel and dried fruits, taken over by charred oak, toast and butter.

On the palate it is a bit astringent as all middle aged agricoles tend to be — a characteristic it shares with modern cognacs bruts. Grass and oak but also abricot and vanilla. Long finish with some bitterness but also abricot, peach and spice — and the unmistakable bourbon flavour framing it in. Very interesting combination because I tend to find bourbon too sweet but this is a dry rum.

HSE Très vieux VSOP offers excellent value for your money. Try it in a ti’punch, or any tiki cocktail with pineapple or enjoy neat unless you are sugarholic. The charred character from the bourbon casks matches pineapple very well if a neat agricole is too much for you.

Un nez remarquable, un longueur intense...un rhum qui vous laisse une superbe sensation en bouche, pour ma part c'est une superbe découverte.

Very dry and grassy agricole. Noticeable burn, hints of straw. Hard to choose between xo and vsop but xo is probably slightly better for me. Can be had straight on rocks and a bit of lime. Still very good. 7.4-7.7.

Full of smokey flavour so this reminds me of a cross between wiskey and rum. But quite tasty and drinkable. Ill absolutely reccomend ice in this one.

Nice amber in the glass with a very grassy and delicate nose. Notes of green apples, unripe peaches, cask and a hint of vanilla rise from the glass.
The taste is very potent with notes of woodchips and tobacco leafs. It’s quite tannic but refined none the less, with a long soothing finish. A nice and manly rum apropriately enjoyed infront of a fire. It stays a big seven for me as the taste cant quite follow the nose.
