Visited the Damoiseau Distillery in Guadeloupe and bought a bottle of Damoiseau Rhum Vieux Millesime 2009 from the distillery since their tasting bar was very limited. Nice looking and high end bottle and label design. Golden color. Typical dry Rhum Agricole flavors alongside grass, fruits, vanilla and plenty of oak followed by a strong burn from the alcohol since this Rhum is super dry. Rhum Agricole fans can easily add 2 points to my score.
I had this at tasting selection , on first nose it's harsh and very overpowering in the grassy and wood notes.
I was told to add a drop of water and it changed complexity completely , don't get me wrong the grass stayed but immense flavours of chocolate , cherry and cask notes .
At this percentage it's dynamite the only thing that lets it down is price but that's why is scores 9 and not 10... 9nly joking 10
