Ce rhum achete a la rhumerie pour 38 euros il vaut largement son prix.le vsop etait tres bien et celui la est meilleur.on sent mieux le gout boise.a ce prix c est vraiment de la super qualute sur la vanille il reste moyennement complexxe.je prefere le 8 ans meilleur pour moi.note 8.5.
I agree with the last post. The oak, spice and tabacco are really predominant and at the first tasting I was really disappointed about this rum. I visited few years ago the factory in Guadeloupe and Damoiseau is a famous rum maker. This rum received award (Médaille d'or - Paris 2011) but I'm still not convinced...
I'm a complete fan of Damoiseau white rum so that I was expecting a lot from its XO, 6 years old, counterpart.
I must admit that it has been quite a disappointment:
- The color is a light amber dressed in a rather common flask, nearly the same as the Navy Pusser's rums for instance,
- The nose is predominantly flavored with oak, spices and tobacco,
- Under the palate, oak flavors are once again predominant. This rum is rather acid and dry.
In my opinion this rum is a bit too young to be really interesting. I've been told that the 8 years old rum from Damoiseau is better, richer and more complex than this one ... I'll have to try.
