Aroma is not very pleasant. First taste is typical agricole with many wild fruity and wooden tones. Body is not very complex but nice. Aftertaste is my favorite part - long with fruity and appricote tones.

The Depaz VSOP is produced using fresh cane juice and bottled at 45%. Nosing reveals notes of cane, vanilla and spice. Palate is quite forceful and juvenile, pretty spicy, dry and oaky and especially smoky. Also the long finish shows clearly the smoky notes. So you get something nice and & real in your glass. For an Agricole Rhum it has surprisingly little grassy notes.

De los rhum agricole, el mejor que he probado. Muy fresco, piña, vainilla. Terciopelo en la boca y un agradable quemazón.

This is one of the better agricoles. Aged for 7 years, bottled at 45%vol, with a nice lightly golden amber hue and clingy legs.
This rum possess one of the most appealing aromas out there, no matter if wer' talking agricole or molasse based. It's a delicate fruity, grassy mix of sweet pineapple, peach, pear, vanilla and light caramel with a dry sprinkle of oak, nutmeg and pepper. Unbelivebly nice and the essense of how delicate agricole can be.
The medium bodied taste is absolutely no disapointment either. It' carries a lot of the notes from the aroma with a similar composition, but not quite as sweet. It's intense, full of flavour and attacks with a little spicyness at the end, as tobacco notes and the woody tannin's take centerstage in a lengthy finish. Briliant balance if your into agricole. By the way what a shame they updated the bottledesign, the old green "wine" bottle was original and kinda cool.

Krásně ovocná vůně. Velmi jemný, sladký, hodně je cítit alkohol.

Située au pied de la Montagne Pelée, la distillerie s’appuie sur la spécificité de son terroir volcanique et de son savoir-faire maîtrisé pour produire avec une grande régularité des rhums de grande qualité.

En 2014, la distillerie présente son nouveau flacon (l’actuel) qui sublime le contenu, qui lui reste le même.

Alors que l’appellation VSOP garantit au consommateur un minimum de 4 ans de vieillissement, le Depaz VSOP Réserve Spéciale a bénéficié, quant à lui, d’un vieillissement de 7 ans passés dans des fûts de chêne (ancien fûts de cognac et de bourbon), lui permettant de développer une palette aromatique riche et complexe. C’est donc en toute logique que le Depaz VSOP Réserve Spéciale a remporté la médaille d’or du Concours Général Agricole de Paris deux fois, en 2009 et en 2012.

Notre avis : un très bon rhum, d'une grande finesse, bien présenté, à déguster par petite gorgée pour en capter toute la palette qu’il a à offrir. L’aération dans le verre peut être un bon allié si vous trouver l’attaque trop franche en bouche.

Nez : vif et racé, on y décèle des notes de le pruneau, de pâte d’amande et de vanille, rehaussé par un boisé doux qui complète chaleureusement l’ensemble.

Bouche : L'attaque en bouche est puissante, très fidèle au nez avec des notes de réglisse et de prune, une jolie rondeur en fin de bouche.

Finale : assez longue et un peu sèche, dominée par un fruité épicé.

Attaque franche et belle longueur en bouche pour ce rhum agricole, assez boisé sur des notes de canne et de vanille.

This clear, golden colored VSOP is aged in small oak casks for seven years. In nose you can recognize aromas of cut grass, prunes and vanilla. The palate brings notes of tobacco, liquorice and some sweetness. It’s an elegant and well-balanced rum. The only VSOP that can compete, of those I’ve tasted, is the 8yo “Reserve du Comte Arthur Dillon”.

A strong dry rum with hints of grass.
Almost like a mild cognac.

I think you can give this an 8 if it's to your particular taste. Very fresh and awakening. I prefer sweeter and woodier but it's a really good rum. Whisky enthusiasts will enjoy it.

45% abv. Lovely amber colour in the glass , very astringent on the nose so I left it to mellow for a good 15 mins but still very strong alcohol fumes. On sipping the white fruits and white pepper try to force their way to the front but are held back by the alcohol burn...
For a 7 yr rum I was expecting a lot smoother , it did get slightly mellower as I finished the glass but not enough for me to rate higher.

Visited the Depaz Distillery while vacationing at Martinique. Distillery tours were closed, so got the Depaz VSOP from a local grocery store at EUR 29 per bottle. Pretty decent old school bottle and label design. Traditional very dry Rhum Agricole notes followed by grass, strong oak and floral bouquet to your nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 2 points to my score.

Very cognac-like and dry at first tasting. On second tasting, I could pick out the grass and fruity notes. If you like agricole, add 3 points.

This rhum is really nice to drink. The nose is sweet and encourage you to go further and sip it !
On the palate this Depaz is fruity then becomes spicy and so on and so on. you discover different aromas as time passes. I really had some fun with this one.

Beautiful rum with vegetable notes (sugar cane) and exotic fruits. Pineapple, grapefruit and vanilla. It has a very nice palate with a constant evolution in flavorings, one arrives on red fruits like strawberry, cherry and again towards the exotic fruits and licorice. it is as if the flavors rotate in the glass. Like it !

Al naso si percepisce un leggero odore pungente di frutta secca tipo prugne. In bocca molto delicato, leggermente dolce con un finale cognacoso.

Première fois que je bois un rhum de qualité et je n'ai pas été déçu. Pas de sensation de brûleur en bouche. Il n'y a pas un goût de sucre ajouté. Bref, j'ai très bien aimé.

je partage l'avis de Phil concernant ce rhum; excellent rhum à boire sans modération

Posted over 4 years ago by guewen from France with 97 ratings

Tabac, cuir, juste ce qu'il faut d'épice...ce rhum est une vrai réussite ! Un très belle longueur en bouche, il ne se fait pas oublier rapidement !! Un rhum français abordable, qui a dû caractère !! Oui monsieur !

Belle couleur foncée, façon miel de sapin
Nez : engageant, sucré, fruits confits, tabac
Attaque : très franche : c'est du brutal ! (45°) puis explosion de saveurs, canne à sucre, réglisse, vanille le tout avec une belle rondeur.
Finale : très longue, goût de canne avec des notes de vanille.

Autant le vieux Depaz m'a paru quelconque (goût de bois), ce VSOP mérite d'être goûté et partagé.
