Enjoyed a bottle of Damoiseau Rhum Blanc 55 while vacationing in Corsica. Bottle and label design looks quite dull and unimaginative. Very reasonable EUR 19 price. Typical dry notes from the Rhum Agricole manufacturing process straight to the nose and palate with plenty of fruitiness. Very strong burn at the end. Mix it with your favorite soda and down it goes.

I was surprised by how estery it was at first; but once that surprise passed, the vegetable flavors described by other reviewers took front and center. Also surprised by its sweetness, I thought it almost tasted like a high-proof ti' punch, syrup and lime already added. (I like my ti' punch rum-forward, though!) Although I think their target market was tiki drinks, I think most readers of this site will best enjoy this in a ti' punch.

It is strong, and makes me wonder if I'd like the lower-proof expression more... or if I let it breathe for a significant time... or maybe added a little water or ice. There's a lot to explore here, and I'll admit, I do not have a great palate for agricole style rhums.

Rhum un peu brut qui manque un peu de finesse en bouche

There is a tomato-like flavor in the afterburn to their rhums, but that's the terroir of the cane Damoiseau harvests. Not my favorite tasting rhum, but unique to the region. They are the only distiller (as of 2018) on Grande Terre, and serve their market on this island extensively - it's very easy to find in general.

All said, seek the 55º, which is not as readily found as the lower proofs. It has better character and overall flavor than their other blancs, as most of the reviewers have accurately described their experiences with it. Makes a great cocktail (planteur punch, etc. ... ) base, it is a potent mixer. Tip: It mixes better with canne sirop than granulated raw sugar when making a ti' punch.

Better than I was initially expecting. I tend to try rums with flavored seltzers, and they complimented the flavors very well.

Huge nose. Bartender suggested creamed corn, and he's right… but also with corn fungus. The fermentation vat must have been busy! Fortunately, it's sweeter on the palate. The strength is just about right. The finish is shortish but pleasantly warm. Despite the challenging nose, I would love to try this in a Ti' Punch.

(note: review updated 10/26/17, as it seems D's Blanc 55% is distinct from their Pure Cane Rum 110-proof)
