Tasty, but not quite great
Visited the HSE distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Distillery tours were closed for the season but full open tasting bar was offered. HSE Eleve Sous Bois was priced at EUR 35 per bottle at the distillery. Nice bottle and light green label design. Traditional very dry Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with plenty of grass, floral notes and dry oak to your nose and palate. Very strong burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can add 2 points to the score.
This rhum agricole has matured for 12-18 months in french oak barrels. Flavor profile is based on raisins, white grapes, dried pears and vanilla. No extended finish. Convincing especially given the current price (it is one of the cheapest rum bottles from Habitation Saint-Etienne).
Ce rhum se laisse apprécier sec si l'on a pas peur de s'attaquer à un rhum assez fort. Sinon il est excellent pour les ti'punch ou autres cocktails à base de rhum.
