So I thought I'd give the very hard to find 10yr old a go. A screw top but not cheap metal was a bit of a surprise.. but the aromas when opened filled the room. Beautiful what I thought as sherry notes abound.. dark berry and stone fruits , unlike the grassy , white fruit traits of agricoles ? Left in the glass for a good 20 mins , sips very well , slightly sharp but im hoping this will dull down as the bottle gets time to breath. No real burn on the way down... recommended if you can find it.

The Damoiseau Rhum Vieux Agricole Millesime 2001 10 years is from the Bellevue Distillery on Guadeloupe. The Rhum was allowed to store in Ex Bourbon barrels for 10 years and was then bottled with 42%.

The Rhum is restrained and sweet in the nose. Fruity, woody notes combine with grassy Agricole notes. The rhum is balanced and the aromas are evenly perceptible. Unfortunately, everything is a little restrained. On the palate, the Rhum is a bit watery at first. Some sweetness and clear bourbon notes combine oak, caramel and fruit. At the end, there are clear Agricole notes. The finish then has some sharpness and barrel notes are there to stay. Bitter substances are quite intense here and persist for a long time.

For me, the Damoiseau is too thin with 42%. There is something lacking in depth and body. It is also very influenced by the bourbon barrels and the Agricole notes are not strong enough. But it has a good complexity. The Rhum gets a little lost between the worlds and can't keep up with the JM XO and HSE XO.

Der Damoiseau Rhum Vieux Agricole Millesime 2001 10 Jahre ist aus der Bellevue Distillerie auf Guadeloupe. Der Rhum durfte 10 Jahre in Ex Bourbon Fässern lagern und wurde dann mit 42% abgefüllt.

Der Rhum ist in der Nase zurückhaltend und lieblich. Fruchtig, holzige Noten verbinden sich mit grassigen Agricole Noten. Der Rhum ist dabei ausgewogen und die Aromen sind gleichmäßig wahrnehmbar. Leider alles etwas zurückhaltend. Am Gaumen ist der Rhum im ersten Moment etwas wässrig. Etwas Süße und deutliche Bourbon Noten kombinieren sich mit Eiche, Karamel und Frucht. Zum Abgang kommen dann deutliche Agricole Noten dazu. Der Abgang hat dann etwas Schärfe und die Fassnoten übernehmen. Bitterstoffe sind hier durchaus intensiv und bleiben lange bestehen.

Für mich ist der Damoiseau mit 42% zu dünn. Es fehlt etwas die Tiefe und der Körper. Er ist auch sehr durch die Bourbon Fässer geprägt und die Agricole Noten gehen etwas unter. Dafür hat er eine gute Komplexität. Der Rhum verliert sich etwas zwischen den Welten und kann mit dem JM XO und HSE XO nicht mithalten.

This is bizarre agricole , it's more like aged distalate that I have ever tasted from Damo.

Starts off with sherry & raisan notes on the nose which is unusual for a Rhum . Honey comes through on the nose .

The taste is typical agricole of vegatation sherry, port , sweet oak wine ...this is a good Rhum to drink but feel the 2009 is miles in front

Rhum agricole z Guadaloupe s nádhernou zlatě medovou barvou, úžasným a bohatým aroma a velice velice lahodnou chutí. V nose hraje jak dřevo tak hlavně všechno možné ovoce. Paleta chutí od sladké přes lehkou kyselinku až po nahořklý dlouhý konec. 42% alc. mu sluší akorát, pocitově bych tipoval i větší sílu. Je prostě skvělý!

Túto značku z Guadeloupe naozaj milujem. Práve ročník 2001 pijem veľmi často a v pomere cena/výkon je to pre mňa top agricole na trhu. Plná vôňa podporená krásnou tmavou farbou. Chuť do čokolády, ovocie, banány, citrusy. Skvelá volba

- vůně velmi příjemná jemná, káva a cukrová třtina
- chuť nasládlá, jemná, 42% dává o sobě vědět, vanilka a i ta skořice je cítit, dlouhý skoricovy závěr

Visited the Damoiseau Distillery in Guadeloupe and bought a bottle of Damoiseau Millesime 2001 10y from the distillery since their tasting bar was very limited. Nice looking and high end bottle and label design. Golden color. Typical Rhum Agricole flavors alongside grass, fruits, vanilla and oak followed by a strong burn from the alcohol. Rhum Agricole fans can easily add 2 points to my score.

Cracked bottle with great anticipation, mildly disappointed in screw top( I love a cork). Poured into brandy glass gave a good swirl and long sniff, the flavour filled my nose and mouth even on the exhale, good start! I sometimes think that I enjoy the anticipation more than the actual drink. Anyway, a good mouthful and swish revealled a rum with enough punch to let you know that you are drinking a serious spirit but with very little harshness. Just enough sweetness to pay homage to the sugarcane and a beautiful finish that leaves you wanting the next mouthful!
Not exactly what I expected, but a very drinkable rum , definitely worth a try!
