Distillerie de qualité qui produit de tres bon rhum agricole ici le fut de cognac rend le nez particulier pour ma part mais cela reste un bon rhum agréable
Nose: faint honey and vanilla mix with something faintly floral over top the beautiful wood aromas. The palate has a discernible saltiness up front, with dry wood, some spice and cereal notes, similar to whisky, before the finish ends with a banana bread note. It’s quite young and lacking some harmony, but is a worthy sipper. This would make a beautiful after dinner rhum.
Purchased a bottle of Longueteau VS Rum in spite of the fact that I don’t particularly enjoy Agricole rums. This one, however, surprised me. The taste is definitely different than molasses based rums but the flavours are very much to my taste. Nicely done.
Second night of tasting this rhum and I am really pleased with this purchase. So much that I bought two more bottles!
Visited the Longueteau Distillery in Guadeloupe and bought a bottle of Longueteau VS from the distillery. Very high end bottle and label design. Light golden color. Typical Rhum Agricole flavors alongside grass, fruits, vanilla and plenty of oak followed by a mild but dry burn. Rhum Agricole fans can easily add 2 points to my score.
Picked this one up at a longueteau tasting. Along with the blanc 50, this one seemed the best value of their line up.
The rum is golden amber with nice clingy legs in the glass after a little swirl.
The nose is a symphony of cherries, marcipan and black grapes. It’s all a little grassy and woody. Pleasent and intriguing at the same time.
The palate starts of with the grapes and grassy notes, then roll’s onto wood , nutmeg and marcipan in the middle, ending on a nice peppery and tingling finish that leaves you with the cherries lingering in the mouth for a good while.
In general I find that guadeloupe rum has a fuller body and is a tad less dry then your average agricole, wich suits my taste buds very well.
This one is excelent value if your into agricole.
Plus doux que le 50° blanc, le fut de cognac charge le goût de boisé, je n'ai pas ressenti le côté vanille. Cependant agréable au nez, la texture est lisse et agreable
Un peu cher dans le commerce mais prix très correct à la distillerie. A laisser s'aérer avant de le déguster. Dominante boisée en bouche.
