42% but feels a little hotter. Starts off with a big nose of oak and leather. Once it breathes the sugars start to come through along with a bit of orange peel and the oak turns to vanilla. Give it more time and a scent of cut grass and pineapple make an appearance.
Sipped it lights the tongue up with heat. It's stringant from the oak, viscous, smokey and sweet. The cane is not missing one bit here and finishes with dark chocolate caramel. It lingers too.
Overall fantastic and does not disappoint on any level.

Well, it's a good rum all around with fine notes of cocoa and wood. Long aftertaste, balanced, a little bit too dry.

A solid agricole. Subtle floral and grass notes. Very smooth. Decent balance. Nice sugar and coffee notes that stay on the pallet. Oak and tobacco in the background also. Finish is very good but not quite as good as the XO. Very drinkable. Better on ice than neat.

A very light rhum, I would prefer more intensive taste and smell, it's too light for me (even with 42%). I don't like this watery taste, it was diluted too much.

Smell: fermented sugar cane, citrus, earth/barrel, some leather, sour smell
Taste: citrus, watery, vanilla, some paper, some bitterness, spice, some salt
Aftertaste: green and sour apples, some bitterness/young oak, peppermint

Sweetness: 1/5
Fruits: 1.5/5
Spice: 2/5
Mildness: 3.5/5

Such a different blend of two types of rum .
Charcoal flavours followed by citrus fruits ... Makes a good Manhattan. ..

This aged agricole is fine really well, with strong vanilla and smooth notes instead of the typical woodiness of many aged agricoles

I have the 8yo and the 15yo in the old green bottles and it can’t compete with them of course.
But it’s really not bad at all. I think that the fruitiness dominates especially in nose and afterburn. Besides that it’s oaky and spicy.

Это отвратительно! Если дать подышать - аромат становится приятным, шоколад, нотки дуба, что-то еще, приятный в общем. Но вкус... Что это? Нечто среднее между монтажной пеной и носками скалолаза.

Enjoyed two glasses of Damoiseau VSOP. Similar bottle and label design to all other Damoiseau range. Amber golden color. Plenty of alcohol, some vanilla, oak and traditional Agricole grassy notes to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can add 2 points to my score.
