I liked this one! Smooth drinking, came as a tip from my local liquorstore and was not dissapointed. Funny bottle design with those leaves!
Aged 10 Years
Country of origin: Madagascar
Color: Chestnut Oloroso
Sweet and a little reluctant. The smell is dominated by aromas of exotic plants and spices - tons of cardamon, some sandalwood, cacao and coffee. Furthermore it is a little spicy (Jalapeños).
Smooth and creamy with notes of toffee, cappuccino and mocca.
Medium long on notes of toffee. A little spicy.
The 10 year old Vieux Rhum Dzama has a very strong alcohol smell to the nose, but the taste test is a bit better. Raisin flavor is a big component, and there is hardly any sweetness to this rhum, it is super dry. Hardly any burn at the end, which is quite surprising taking into consideration the strong initial alcohol smell. If you like Rhum Agricole's in general terms, then add 3 points, otherwise if you like sweeter rums like me, it struggles to earn a 5 score.
Acheté à Madagascar lors d'une escale à Tamatave, c'est pour moi le meilleur choix de chez Dzama. La vanille est présente mais pas trop le rhum est complexe est long en bouche. Le prix est juste imbattable à moins de 15€. Je mets 8/10 pour le rhum et 10/10 pour le rapport plaira/prix !
Offered in an orginial bottle ( with strange spout :-) ), this Dzama is quite clear in the glass with small legs.
On the nose, it is light, fresh, fruity ( slightly oriented to citrus aromas ) and also spicy specially the pepper.
When you sip it, your mouth confirms what you nose told you earlier. Light and spicy, the pepper even burns your tongue. Quite a special one which has to be tasted.
Beautiful bottle covered with banana leaf. This rum has a nice coppery color with gray green reflections. Floral and vegetal notes, very pleasant to the nose. A presence of unripe exotic fruits and orange zest. On the palate, citrus fruits with orange and vanilla are present. A short finish with spicy notes, pepper. Real rate : 7,5
A nice rum. However a bit strong in taste, and also the after taste is marked by alcohol, has some fruit in it which makes it interesting. The outfit of the bottle, covered with dried sugarcane leaves, gives a special plus to this rum.
it´s good. bold start, medium middle and yet a short ending. maybe there should be more in the finish, but its ok. banana, grassy, some less smoke and the typical fruitiness of a sugar cane juice rhum.
I tasted the Dzama Vintage rum 1998, which is itself interesting for being produced in Madagascar. The rum is made of molasses, its light brown color. It is really strong in taste but somehow the feeling is nice, it has a great afterburn. There is also a hint of dark chocolate in the taste.
Overall a nice rum for a rum tasting, to compare one from a quite unknown region.
Superbe bouteille de Madagascar, nez floral épicé, bouche puissante et pleine d'alcool. Par la suite, de notes de bois et de caramel.
Comme son petit frère de 3ans, ce rhum est parfumé très fortement par la vanille.
Ses 45% lui donne un côté piquant en bouche pour au final laisser exploser toutes ses saveurs en bouche.
Le final est assez long pour ne pas se ruer sur une autre gorgée directement...
Un très bon rhum donc avec des touches de vanilles et bananes brûlée...
