First of all, I need to post a disclaimer/qualifier that I'm NOT a big fan of agricole rhums. I thought at best I'd rate this rhum a high '8'. But this is truly a fabulous agricole. Date on the cork says 1985 (is it really that old?)

Tastes like an agricole, but sweeter than most. Smells and tastes like it was aged in fine wine (though it says it was aged in cognac, which of course is also grape based). Also has notes of licorice, spice, sugar cane, oak, and prunes. I really enjoy this, and finally found a truly great agricole!

Wow wow wow, le bonheur est dans la bouteille quelque une de prise au passage des années, un goût improbable, une balance entre le rhum sucre les tannins les épices, une puissance en bouche et une souplesse en arrière goût, c'est la boisson des anges...

Me arriesgué mucho al comprarlo pues no había tenido la oportunidad de probarlo y el precio es bastante alto pero la verdad es que ha merecido la pena. Muchas notas a frutas tropicales y sabor potente para un agrícola de los mejores del planeta.

Visited the La Favorite distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Open tasting bar. Sturdy box surrounding an old school bottle and label design. It took me a good 20 minutes to crack the wax seal open after buying a bottle from the distillery at EUR 127, and let me tell you, its worth every penny and then some! Super deep mahogany color very rarely seen in Rhum Agricole. Prunes, grapes, liquorice and oak all well balanced with Rhum Agricole grassy notes to the nose and palate. No burn at all. Surprisingly sweet for a Rhum Agricole. Simply spectacular! Additional experience with 1985 edition is even smoother than 1991-1993 editions I have tried before.

Tried the 1987 at the Distillery and I'm so thankful I was able to bring home 2 bottles. I'm an avid bourbon drinker and this is still maybe the best old aged liquor I've ever tasted.

Wouaw , this one is clearly on my short list ! I have discovered this one last week end and I can not stop thinking about buying one since then. What a thing ! Sweet and fruity, this rhum is really amazing.
The only problem is the limited production but when you love something .... ;-)
From my pov, this one is really a high end rhum !!!

Just opened a bottle of the 1985. Dark, almost viscous but with a great aroma and wonderful from the first sip.

Had the chance to taste the 1995 vintage (aged for 25 years). What a nice rum. Fruitiness and smoothness dominate from the first nosing until the very extended finish. The cellar master has made a great job as neither spiciness nor smoke flavors overpower the fruity flavor of the rhum. Given the 40% degree of alcohol the flavor intensity is substantial. In terms of quality this is a clear 10-grade for me. The only downside is (a) the expensive price and (b) the apparently reduced aging period (23 years) for the 1997 vintage which is currently sold at unchanged prices.

This rum is the best of the best, I have tried several rums but this is wonderful during the smell and in the mouse it gives soft flavor but richer test, it is wonderful.

Once you're looking for the best rum, La favor is the right choice. Even after visiting the factory and verifying the storage I have only to recommend its excellent taste. Taste matured many years for jewel of rum.
