Assez sec, on sent quand même pas mal l’alcool. Acheté 40€ en grande surface

I am rather used to rums with roundness. I find this one " semi-dry " but I like it with its hay-like taste.

Damoiseau cultivates a different terroir sugar cane of the Guadeloupe archipelago, which may be because of its windward position, flatter land (akin to Mare-Galante) and soil differences. It tastes a bit more metallic and musky than the others, something I don't really love (and for some reason reminds me of rust or a ripe tomato), but respect as they are the only distiller still in operation on Grande Terre and bring a unique profile to the rhum agricole of these islands.

The VO does not have a crazy agricole flavor upfront, as one would expect, but flashes a strong alcohol fire in the nose - a little spicy - and hits more caramel-flavored territory à la other aged demerara spirits. Similar to Diplomatic Reserva, although nowhere near as sweet. Do note the VO rating applies to Brandies and Cognacs, and generally Martinique rhums are the only ones recognized as being able to market themselves in such a manner because of their AOC.

Visited the Damoiseau Distillery in Guadeloupe and bought a bottle of Damoiseau VO from the distillery since their tasting bar was very limited. Nice looking and high end bottle and label design. Light golden color. Typical dry Rhum Agricole flavors alongside grass, citrus fruits, floral notes, vanilla and plenty of oak followed by a strong burn being so dry. Rhum Agricole fans can easily add 2 points to my score.

The nose is very nice, caramel et trés doux. En bouche, strong mais pas trop, a little to much alcohol taste for me, but over all not bad at all !!!

Gets better each time i have a taste

Kdyby měl hodnotit zajímavost a pestrost rozhodně by dostal 9b, jenže mi nepřijde, že je to rum. Šílenost chutí se mi nedá zapřít, ale nemůžu mu dát vyšší body, aby mně to nemátlo. Není to můj šálek kávy. Rozhodně ne.

Le nez est très caramel le, l'attaque douce avec des notes de fruits confits, et de caramel, aucune note florale ou végétale. Bonne longueur en bouche.

the smell and taste has something of banana. light body, not so bold. sugar cane grassy aftertaste. good, but not exceptional rhum. a little bit of wooden spice. the 5 year is much better, i think. although to show banana in a rum, this sample is great!
