Tasty, but not quite great
There are different brut de futs available from Depaz, varying according to age and degree of alcohol. It tried the 2005 brut de fut no. 503 with 58,2%. Very intense nose of a true and well bodied agricole. The palate is extremly spicy and it takes some moments until the mouth can direct the attantion to the plentiful, deep and great flavors this rhum certainly has. Verly long, almost endless finish. So this is a very great rhum but the intensity and spicyness do not render it as a candidate for an evening sipper but more for some kind of special experiment. Therefore just an 8.
Visited the Depaz Distillery while vacationing at Martinique. Distillery tours were closed, so got the Depaz Brut de Fût 2003 from a local grocery store. Pretty decent old school bottle and label design with a very flimsy cardboard box. Traditional very dry Rhum Agricole notes followed by grass, strong oak and floral bouquet to your nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 2 points to my score.
