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
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.
