Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I like this a lot better than I expected based on the current score of only 6.8. It's one of the better agricole's I've tried, and the best I've tried at this price point.
Smells and tastes of sugarcane, oak, spice, tobacco, chocolate, and vanilla. It's quite good for an agricole, which isn't my favorite style, and is highly underrated in my opinion.
I agree with the last post. The oak, spice and tabacco are really predominant and at the first tasting I was really disappointed about this rum. I visited few years ago the factory in Guadeloupe and Damoiseau is a famous rum maker. This rum received award (Médaille d'or - Paris 2011) but I'm still not convinced...
Sweet aroma and first taste, next tones are already from the agricole family - fruits, wood etc. Body is "wild" with more different tones, shorter aftertaste. Good starting rum for agricole virgin 🙂
Enjoyed two glasses of Damoiseau XO. Similar bottle and label design to all other Damoiseau range. Amber color. Plenty of alcohol, some vanilla and spices and traditional grassy notes to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 2 points to my score.
I can not drink a glass of this rum.
I think this is for agricole lover only.
It has taste of field glass juise and some kind of medicine or acid.
Sorry, I will return traditional spanish rum.
good bye, agricole rum.
I like the new image better. See the picture. If you see it buy it.
Very interesting agricole, there is a bit of orange in there, but it is still too dry for me. Add 3 points if you like agricole.
Un nez alcool sans subtilité, puissant en bouche, trop. Épicé avec une longueur correcte.
Beau nez. En bouche, ça manque de délicatesse et de raffinement. On goute l'alcool. Mauvais RQP.
I agree with others. It's acid, to much alcohol on the nose. I expected something more sophisticated. It's interesting, but there are more better agricoles for this price.
Saveur agréable. Pas si sec qu on pouvait le penser. La dégustation m a convaincu d en prendre un bouteille.
Unique rum. Sweet but not. Tobacco, leather. Great finish.
Il s'agit d'un assemblage de rhums de 6 ans.
Bouteille : design agréable mais bouchon à vis, belle couleur ambrée.
Nez : agréable, fruits secs, vanille.
Attaque: douce, vanille, fruits secs et alcool. Boisé très présent.
Finale : ?
S'il manque de punch, ce rhum reste agréable à boire.
Ce rhum vaut largement le détour. son prix. On sent mieux le gout boisé et la vanille que le XO.
Ce rhum achete a la rhumerie pour 38 euros il vaut largement son prix.le vsop etait tres bien et celui la est meilleur.on sent mieux le gout boise.a ce prix c est vraiment de la super qualute sur la vanille il reste moyennement complexxe.je prefere le 8 ans meilleur pour moi.note 8.5.
Dégusté directement à la distillerie, excellent rhum
il a du coffre, on sent bien le coté "agricole"...il reste en bouche, un coté boisé sympa.
I got to sip a shot at the bar. Tasty. A bit to much alcohol on the nose. Somewhat lighter taste profile and maybe even agricultural.
un bon rhum de tradition guadeloupéen. Vieilli dans son fut, du caractère juste ce qu'il faut !
I'm a complete fan of Damoiseau white rum so that I was expecting a lot from its XO, 6 years old, counterpart.
I must admit that it has been quite a disappointment:
- The color is a light amber dressed in a rather common flask, nearly the same as the Navy Pusser's rums for instance,
- The nose is predominantly flavored with oak, spices and tobacco,
- Under the palate, oak flavors are once again predominant. This rum is rather acid and dry.
In my opinion this rum is a bit too young to be really interesting. I've been told that the 8 years old rum from Damoiseau is better, richer and more complex than this one ... I'll have to try.
