- vůně velmi sladká, mléčné karamelky, vanilka, ovoce
- chuť sladká, přechází v jemnou hořkost, konec opět nasládlý, travnatý
Rhum bonbon, excellent ! Sans pour autant être trop sucré. Il a ce côté agréable et non agressif mais pour autant bien complexe, les puristes du genre ne me contrediront pas. Assez satisfait du résultat vu la réputation de la bouteille.
Great rhum agricole, very complex and mature. Awesome sipper!
Cuvée 1993 ("seulement" 26 ans d'age). Un agricole "doux", une explosions de saveurs, d'odeurs. Une longueur incroyable. Complexe et équilibré. Un travail fabuleux de vieillissement. Du bonheur à l'état pur !
A 1993 one ("only" 26 years old). A soft agricole rhum. With an incredible perfume and flavours explosion. An outstanding long aftertaste. It is complex and perfectly balanced. An amazing and fabulous work of aging. The perfect definition of happiness !!
zvláštní, tráva, tráva, tráva a pak zase tráva, dlouhý dojezd, do těchto chutí jsem ještě nedorostl
No words, yust WOOOOOW! They make only 100 bottles each year.
BUY IT NOW!
An amazing rhum so well balanced and with so much flavors, plums, cinnamon, almonds. Lovely thick a little oily and buttery but in a good way.
Une belle bouteille ce millésime 1992, très aromatique et sucré (jus de canne), de type agricole.
C'est tellement aromatique et sucré, qu'on se demande si c'est pas un sucre artificiellement ajouté.
Ca m'étonnerait compte tenu du producteur (La Martinique produit du rhum AOC), mais... c'est perturbant de goutter un rhum si sucré naturellement.
Ça reste un excellent breuvage.
Brought back from the Caribbean by a friend - enjoyed small glass - best rum I’ve ever tasted
Agricoles are usually not high up on my list. But this one is spectacular. Dripping with complexity, almost chewy. I’d go as far as saying it has rancio-like qualities. If you get a chance just try it. It’s worth it.
One of the very best rhums of the world. Great value
J'ai eu la chance de goûter la cuvée 1993 lors d'un voyage en Martinique...
Quelle surprise de découvrir un rhum de cet âge d'une telle douceur et d'une telle délicatesse !
En fait, ce rhum ne porte pas l'Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée de rhum agricole, car il a été mis en tonneau avant 1996, date de création de l'AOC.
A cette époque, comme me l'expliquera très gentiment la gérante de la boutique de la distillerie, les maîtres de chai pouvaient se permettre de travailler avec des recettes et de faire vieillir les rhums en y ajoutant des fruits (pruneaux à ce qu'il semblerait),... C'est ce qui explique la rondeur de ce rhum d'exception!
Filled with so many different spices that gather in your Mouth
I've had a lot of rum in my time. I've ambled through the mount gays, Fleur de canas and Appleton's. Once I hit my old age, I needed something more refined. Appleton's Joy is a fine drop, as is the Cubaney 30. However, la Flibuste is in a class of its own. I was able to import some via martinque-Australia-usa. Not easy. Neither were the Aussie duties. One does not merely drink la Flibuste. La Flibuste dances on the tongue, flirts with the senses, and covers you in a warm dark velvet curtain. Close your eyes and this temptress takes you to faraway places in the Carribbean that evoke the virtues and shortcomings of it's namesake times. Addiction is immediate and lifelong. I just wish they produced more than 5k litres a year.
C'est une folie très marqué sur le bois qui s'adoucit au fur et à mesure on passe par de l'abricot bien mûr voir compté puis du pruneau. un poil trop sur le bois.
This rare bottle contains some of the sweetest, smoothest Rhum known to man. Amazing mahogany coloring!!Think Diplomatic Ambassador kicked up a notch but less thick and even smoother. It has a unique taste of prunes,apple and mango with a variety of spices a smooth taste combined with an ultra long finish that blows your mouth away. Totally awesome. I’d probably give this an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10.
There are still these old rum agricole which can fill a whole evening! An incredible discovery in roasted aromas, coffee, mocha, old woods, slightly dry but very intense and sxhwer. Nothing for beginners.... just because of the price of such a bottle if you can still get it!
I tried this amazing rhum at the famous Rum Bar in the beautiful Whitsunday Isles in North Queensland. Wow , where do I start ? A 1982 bottle according to the cork. Dark stone fruit colour on pouring with the aroma filling the air..
So many things going on in there.. love the cognac taste , soft , fills your mouth with rich fruits , beautiful.. theres no hurry to swallow at all.
No burn , just a velvety exit.
A rare joy to taste.. my first agricole that was amazing.
Bien que les puristes puissent reprocher à ce rhum d'être arrangé (des épices sont ajoutées et j'ai eu confirmation à la distillerie), ce rhum est très bon. Il est assez facile à apprécier, très sur le fruit confit, la cannelle. Un excellent rhum qui fait la jonction entre les agricoles AOC et les rhums de mélasse.
Although the purists may blame this rum for being arranged (spices are added and I got confirmation at the distillery), this rum is very good. It is quite easy to appreciate, very much about candied fruit, cinnamon. An excellent rum that is the junction between agricultural AOC and molasses rums.
I was lucky enough to be able to buy two bottles of this from the Boutique at the distillery.
I was fully expecting it to be stupidly expensive, given the unusually high ratings this rum (rhum) has garnered on here, but it was surprisingly cheap at the equivalent of £110 per bottle, once exchange rates are taken into account.
The idea was that I would get two bottle so I could drink one and sell the other on Ebay, but apparently, that's not allowed. I'm half way through the first bottle now and I'm thinking that unless I get a generous offer, I'll just keep it for myself.
I haven't quite figured this rum (rhum) out yet.
Whilst at he distillery, I tasted their young white rum, Coeur de Cann and found it interesting, but not really terribly enjoyable ... I'm in no particular rush to try it again.
La Flibuste , however is possibly the most unusual rum (rhu... you get the point) I have tasted so far.
I'm finding it difficult to describe the notes I get either on the nose or in the mouth ... there's definitely cognac, bourbon and ... bear with me here ... cola nut. The sweetness comes from demerara and treacle. I feel that there is oak there, but it is masked by something I can't quite put a name to.
The single most impressive thing about this rum is the amount of time you taste it for, after swallowing. It goes on for literally hours.
I kinda feel about this rum, the same way I felt about the novels of WIlliam S. Burroughs ... I don't really understand it, but I definitely know I want to explore it further in the vain hope that I will "get" it.
I haven't tried it with a cigar ... it doesn't feel like the right thing to do.
The only thing I know for sure is that once I take the last sip of a glass, I am finding it exceedingly difficult to not pour another.
If you get the chance, you should definitely try this stuff, if for no other reason than you can help me understand it.
Best rum i ever tasted !
Nice rum from Martinique
I have no words,
I have tasted over 100 rhums, i am speachless, great smell, very long lasting taste of so many elequent flavors.
Crazy charater rhum. So complex, yet punchy at the same time. Figs, vanilla, chocolate, mousse, orange, tiramisu, coco etc.
Have visited the habitation twice - bought a 1991 blend in 2013, and a current one in 2019.
1991 one is sweeter, more calm, while the current blend is more spicy, puncy yet having all the complexity and sweetness the 1991 has. It’s rather difficult to justify buying other vieux rhums when you know that this is available. In fact I’m gonna pour a glass of 1991 now!
