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!
