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

This dark agricole rum is just wonderful and has very complex tastes! I really enjoy it neat.

Le nez oscille entre les fleurs et le caramel.
Je lui trouve une bouche qui se démarque par sa fraicheur, sur les fruits jaunes, avec une finale moelleuse et longue.
A déguster sec.

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.

This is nice and smooth. The best rum I've tasted from Martinique.

The nose is detected notes of spices with cinnamon, pepper and a wooded side. Red fruits are very present in the mouth with a long woody final. A good rum but no more.

This is very a very smooth rum. Slightly too sweet for my tastes, but it can be overlooked. Would buy again.

It’s a perfect exemple of vert old quality agricole rhum. Complex nose, strong and deep mouth, and you need 2 or 3 tastes un order to describes it ! Very nice fullfill feeling on thongue. Wood, but sweet fruits after, and long finale with pepper and ginger

Très bon en bouche. Odeur boisé et fruits qui se retrouve au goût.
