Since Damoiseau 1995 was exceptional, I wan't to try a younger one.

The nose is not that strong and reminds me of Kirt&Sweeney.
I got white oak, vanilla, some caramel, apricot, dark dry fruits, grasy notes, lemon gras. Not very intensive or complex nose, noticeable young.

The taste starts a little bit sweet with grasy notes. This rhum is spicy.
I got grasy notes and lemon gras first, then some caramel and tannins.
The middle starts with grasy notes and turns medical. Then vanilla, some apricot and again wood with tannins.
The finish as a little bit bitter with tannins, wood, grasy notes and apricot.

Not bad overall, but not exceptional, far away from 1995 or from Savanna Creol 2007. Would rate it with 79 points.

Nose: white oak, vanilla, some caramel, apricot, dark dry fruits, grasy notes, lemon gras
Taste: grasy notes, lemon gras, citrus, some caramel, tannins
Middle: grasy and medical notes, vanilla, apricot, oak, tannins
Finish: spice, tannins, wood, grasy notes, apricot

Sweetness: 2/5
Fruits: 2/5
Spice: 3.5/5
Mildness: 2.5/5
Complexity: 3/5
Value: 2/5

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
