Flawed with a glimmer of hope
Had a tasting of the “Vieux 3-years” & the “Special Réserve 6-years” with my son. We both thinks that they both are great but in different ways.
None of them are produced anymore, so they will disappear from the market in a short while.
The 6yo is the precursor of the “Grande Réserve 7-year” and was much better than I thought after reading the reviews.
I can really recommend a tasting if you get an opportunity.
After warmed up it’s a quite sticky, but after less than a minute the aroma is getting very pleasant.
The same goes for the palate and the finish which is medium long.
If you let it breathe for some minutes it’s getting even more smooth.
It’s possible to recognize fruits, spices and of course licorice and some sweetness as I have found in all Rhum from Reimonenq so far.
The difference between the two is that the 6yo has deeper and more powerful taste, but the 3yo is a little bit smoother.

Enjoyed two glasses of Reimonenq Rhum Vieux 6y. Decent bottle and label design. Light golden color. Plenty of alcohol and a massive amount of oak mixed 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. Not my cup of tea.
I got this one as a christmas present and tended to rate it higher everytime I had a snifter. It is nothing for a beginner or a lover of sweet rum, although it has its sweet notes. There is a harsh taste of alcohol, followed immediately by a strong punch of oak. You're virtually falling into the cask and and get to know the distinct taste of each stake of the barrel and its grade of burn. It finishes with some surprising background sweetness that now gets a bit more dominant. One has to be in the mood, nothing for everyday sipping. Maybe even something for whiskey lovers!
Rhum agricole de Guadeloupe, distillé en Basse-Terre.
Présentation : bouteille banale présentée dans un étui en carton, le rhum est assez clair.
Nez : odeur de dissolvant, dominante alcool et vague odeur de banane.
Bouche : douce puis très forte présence des tanins, boisé et là encore, dominante d'alcool.
Finale : assez courte, vague arrière-goût épicé.
Ce rhum titre 40°, multi-médaillé (2006 et 2009) mais il ne me convient pas.
Un ami lui trouve un goût de sirop pour la toux. Il va finir avec du coca.
Ce rhum est imbuvable. C'est de l'alcool pur avec un gout de kérosène. J'ai pourtant essayé plusieurs fois d'y revenir mais il m'est impossible de le boire et je finis toujours par jeter mon verre dans l’évier (à me demander si son usage principal n'est pas déboucheur d’évier).
This rum is undrinkable. That's pure alcohol with a taste of kerosene. I tried it several times but I can't drink it and I always end up throwing my glass into the sink.
