C'est le rhum que je bois le plus étant donné son rapport qualité/prix.

Un super rhum agricole Avec beaucoup de goût

Not my favorite one but it is a good rum. I really like the white rum made by this company. I was a bit disappointed by their vieux rhum. Missing of length & balance especially.

Got this 5cl sample of the 3yo Damoiseau VO from Rum Ratings Tasting Club.
The aroma is mild with possibility to detect honey, vanilla and hints of wood.
On the palate there is a certain sweetness and it’s possible to detect orange, cardamom and coffee.
During the medium long finish the cardamom and coffee dominates.
Picture: My emptied sample and the poured glass.

Tento agricole je nenuteny, mierne ostrejší vzhľadom na vek. Príjemný vstup medzi rumy Damoiseau. Jemne ovocie, korenie a drevitosti. Neurazí, ani neposadi na zadok

Je l ai trouvé sans grand intérêt. Rhum qui se laisse boire, cependant le nez ne renvoie pas grand chose, en bouche les premières saveurs sont appréciable mais sans longueur notable. Il est tout de même à tester... Comme tous les rhums!!
Bien plus appréciable en ti-vieux que sec.

Assez sec, on sent quand même pas mal l’alcool. Acheté 40€ en grande surface

I am rather used to rums with roundness. I find this one " semi-dry " but I like it with its hay-like taste.

Damoiseau cultivates a different terroir sugar cane of the Guadeloupe archipelago, which may be because of its windward position, flatter land (akin to Mare-Galante) and soil differences. It tastes a bit more metallic and musky than the others, something I don't really love (and for some reason reminds me of rust or a ripe tomato), but respect as they are the only distiller still in operation on Grande Terre and bring a unique profile to the rhum agricole of these islands.

The VO does not have a crazy agricole flavor upfront, as one would expect, but flashes a strong alcohol fire in the nose - a little spicy - and hits more caramel-flavored territory à la other aged demerara spirits. Similar to Diplomatic Reserva, although nowhere near as sweet. Do note the VO rating applies to Brandies and Cognacs, and generally Martinique rhums are the only ones recognized as being able to market themselves in such a manner because of their AOC.

Visited the Damoiseau Distillery in Guadeloupe and bought a bottle of Damoiseau VO from the distillery since their tasting bar was very limited. Nice looking and high end bottle and label design. Light golden color. Typical dry Rhum Agricole flavors alongside grass, citrus fruits, floral notes, vanilla and plenty of oak followed by a strong burn being so dry. Rhum Agricole fans can easily add 2 points to my score.
