Now this is some good stuff
Damoiseau Rhum Vieux Millesime 1995 Full Proof 66,9%.
I expect this one to be very good. Let's see.
The nose starts with leather, grasy and floral notes but also sweet with caramel, cocoa and grains. I get also some earth from the toasted cask. It's not very smooth first, we are talking about 67%. But still a great nose, the best agricole nose I had so far.
The taste starts warm with leather, butter, grasy notes and spice. I never had such a buttery taste before. I'm very excited. Then I get oranges and dry orange peels with tannins from the wood. As the taste became more intensive the orange peels turns into anise.
The middle taste starts with spice, then butter again, grains and tannins in the background.
Again the buttery taste and dry orange peels.
The finish starts with some spice, grans, tannins and butter with dry orange peels at the end.
Exceptional rhum, very tasty and exciting. I would rate this one with 95 points.

Beautiful color between caramel and leather. This rum has a strong alcohol nose with vegetal notes and vanilla and spice. With a fairly high alcohol grade (66.9% ) , it has a pretty wooded mouth taste with some bitterness . A nice , long finish on the palate.
Za mňa je toto presne agricole ako má vyzerať. Explózia vôní i chuti, dal by som mu tak 9,4 bodu. Plná drevita chuť, náznaky ovocia a vôbec by som nepovedal, že má 66,9%.
Visited the Damoiseau Distillery in Guadeloupe and bought a bottle of Damoiseau Millésime 1995 from the distillery since their tasting bar was very limited. Nice looking and high end bottle and label design. Mahogany color. Typical dry Rhum Agricole flavors alongside grass, citrus fruits, floral notes, vanilla and plenty of oak followed by a super strong burn being so dry and being bottled at 133.8 Proof. Rhum Agricole fans can easily add 2 points to my score.
Damoiseau 1995 full proof 66,9%
Origine : Guadeloupe
Nez : fruit exotique, réglisse, cannelle, bois brûlé
Bouche : vague successives de chaleur, réglisse, bois brûlé, très longue finale smoky avec note d’essence vers la fin.
Avec 2 gouttes d’eau il s’ouvre un peu et on décèle des notes de cassonades.
This Damoiseau can be describe as strong ! On the nose , it is roasted with vegetal aromas, some vanilla and a nice woody flavor. Before sipping it , be prepared ... Full proof, this Damoiseau has not been reduced and is still at 66.9% which is a quite serious alcohol level. Howerever, the mouth is less complex than the nose but is still nice and tasty. One of my first Agricole rhum and definitively not the last :-D
