Also called "Cœur de Rhum" (beyond Canne and Ambre), with a newer bottle design to match the others. I was already familiar with the other two, which provide quite a distinctive kick in the face compared to most other rums, even agricoles. These young ones come out swinging from the bottle, and are unmistakable in a cocktail.

This one... not so much.

In stark contrast to its younger siblings, this La Favorite has very faint nose. There is only the faintest shadow of the LF characteristics I have encountered. The nose is quite lovely, there's just so little of it. It does bloom a little in the mouth, but not much. The taste is mild, with detectible grass over typical aged rum notes. The sharpness is muted, making it highly approachable, but rather boring and listless (which, for a $50+ bottle, is disappointing).

This rum has been diluted far too low (40%, vs. the usual 50). Watered down to within an inch of its life. I would recommend this to people new to agricoles, as it serves as kind of a bridge from other well-aged but weak traditional rums. I might also recommend this to whisky drinkers; it would probably make a killer Old Fashioned.

Don't get me wrong; it's very good. Excellent aged profile. But I can't get over my disappointment for what was lost in bottling, and can only imagine the flavor that got covered up. At 50% this would be an easy 8. As it is, a 7, 7+.

Another rum that I have heard a lot about and never tried. I will definitely try others. This showed promise but fell short. I like Agricole but this was just a little lifeless and thin. Smooth but short finish without much bite. I am anxious to try others.

Il s'agit d'un rhum franc avec des arômes d'épice, d'une belle couleur ambre les sucre n'est pas trop présent, très bon produit du même producteur la flibuste et cuvée spéciale an 2000 sont extraordinaire

Light, fruity and spicy. Its a somewhat decent rhum agricole but I personally don't like this fruity taste at all.

I can recommend it for mixing.

Le design de la bouteille est différent, avec une étiquette noire.
rhum de 4 ans.
Nez : ample, canne, café, mais avec un côté huileux
Attaque franche, alcool puis canne
Au final, ce rhum est agréable mais il ne sort pas du lot.

Alkohol: 40 %
Původ: Martinik
Aroma: Vůně je kořenitější, silně mi evokuje brandy, pod tím květinové tóny. Silně to připomíná destilát z vinných hroznů,
k této složce se přidává výrazně sladká kořenitost. Rumy mi to nepřipomíná, aspoň ne ty klasické. Z Martiniku jsem měl už Clément a ten mi taky rum nepřipomínal. (83 b)
Chuť: Chuťově má zase blíž k brandy, s hodně zvláštním ocasem v dochuti, až zanechává povlak na jazyku. Jak znovu pročítám recenzi na Clément, i tam to bylo podobné.
Není to úplně špatné, je to pitelné, ale poněkud zvláštní. (79 b)
Body: 81
Shrnutí: Jak jsme se s josém postupně utvrdili, ona zvláštnost v dochuti, a někdy i chuti, je průvodním a typickým znakem všech zemědělských rumů z Martiniku, které jsme měli
možnost ochutnat. Dost špatně se ten dojem popisuje, to je nutno ochutnat na vlastní chuťové buňky. Všechny zemědělské rumy mi z toho důvodu víc voní, než chutnají.
U levnějších kousků se dá říci, že je "pachuť" silnější, u dražších a vyzrálejších je potlačena, není tak vystupující.

La Favorite is a familial distillery, Coeur de Rhum is just good!
