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.

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.

Very aromatic nose with grasy notes.
A light taste with nice aftertaste. I think this is a great agricole, but I could cry because of the dilution.
I would prefer more intensive taste and smell, it's way too light for me with 42%.
I think 55% would be much better.
I see this rhum at 7.5, because of the dilution.
With 55% or cask strength it would get a 9 or even a 10.
Too bad, in the aftertaste this rum shows so much potential. I could Imagine it's beauty at cask strength.

Smell: fermented sugar cane, citrus, grasy notes, earth/barrel, sour smell, pepper
Taste: citrus, watery, vanilla, some paper/grasy notes
Finish: some bitterness, spice, some salt and pepper
Aftertaste: green and sour apples, orange, pepper, floral notes (tasty)

Sweetness: 1/5
Fruits: 1.5/5
Spice: 2/5
Mildness: 3.5/5
Value (35€): 4/5

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

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.
