Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I bought this thinking it would be a good supplement for VSOP which I can't find in my area. Its definitely drier and not nearly as sweet as traditional rum, obviously because it isnt. It wasn't bad in my tiki drinks but will need to try more to better understand it.
Edit* I enjoy this a lot more now. I had only experienced it in cocktails and Dont prefer what it adds in a cocktail.
Sipping is a entirely different experience. It's quite good neat or with a little ice.
A real smooth Rhum, one of my few discoveries from my Rum advent calendar
C'est toute la difference. Le rhum est destille du sap de canne et pas de la bagasse.
J'ai vue la plantation et la distellerie. Il y'a peu meilleur.
Je confirme tous les commentaires précédents . Ne vaut pas le détour
Oakey warm nice but not spectacular rum. There are better ones in this price range
Overall, disappointed with this rum. Doesn't have an obvious depth of flavours. Could taste caramel, with a hint of vanilla, but the overwhelming flavour was the sugar and the alcohol. Didn't want to drink it neat because of the lack of depth, but when add to a mixer, appeared to just add sweetness and was lost. Actually reminded me a a cheap Christmas chocolate filled with a liquor.
Une attaque très puissante et très boisée, pas désagréable pour autant même si une bouche si franche n'est pas du goût de chacun. Une finale vanille et légèrement chocolatée ponctue la dégustation.
Typiquement de style antillais, avec une puissance franche.
Light, dry fruity nose
Sharp in the mouth, flat & woody taste, very dry
Herbal after tones, to me like wet hay, no dried fruit, no Caribbean sunshine
Having got into rums through Zacapa and El Dorado, this was disappointing.
A boire en cocktail ou accompagné de coca.
Correct on the rock malgré la présence soutenue de l'alcool.
Prix très abordable.
Pleasant aroma with vanilla and oak. Mild but intense on tongue with longlasting aftertaste
Very elegant and mature, but clearly not for everyone. This rum needs the right mindset and experience. I can't say I'm there yet, and it's not my preferred choice, but I can understand the grandioso of it. I tried this at a rum and chocolate tasting, and at first it was a pretty edgy rum with tones of cognac and oak. It turned out it is perfect with some rich pricey (swiss) milk chocolate. The combo was almost so good I saw stars.
The first time I tried this rum, I disliked it very much. It was overly woody and I dismissed it entirely. I tried it again the other night in a Glencairn glass with the mindset that it would be unlike most rums I am used to drinking and found that it was quite enjoyable. It has a unique aroma, like toasted wet hay with a smooth finish. Supplemented by sweeter rums, it adds a layer of depth and complexity to cocktails. I will be trying this again as a sipper soon.
Woody and spicy, enough strong but good!A real rhum from martinique.
Voici le premier rhum vieux agricole que j'ai gouté.
J'ai le souvenir d'un rhum très épicés et assez boisé, à boire sec ou en Ti' Punch :)
Trop fort sur glace, alcool présent.
bon arrière gout boisé.
Un bon rhum mais pas forcément excellent. Très boisé.
Très bon en cocktail pour moi c'est avec un trait de sucre de canne
Clement Vieux Rhum smager ikke af meget andet end sprit, ikke min stil.
The fact that you can find it in supermarkets as a "top" brand will save your nights for "ti punch" if you like it with gold rum as I do. Not bad, but nothing amazing.
