I was finally able to visit the distillery in 2009 and this millesime was one of the greatest old rhum that I have tasted
To date, this has been the finest rum I've experienced. Very sophisticated. Purchased a bottle in NOLA and brought it home. Had been saving and savoring over a few years. New Year's Eve 2014, I had friends over and they polished it off without my realizing they'd done so. Am writing this several years after my last sip, so have forgotten its nuances, but I do recall a wonderful aroma and a very well-balanced, pleasantly warm feel on the tongue that lingered for a while.
I managed to get my hands to a Rhum J.M. 1999 Vintage at the same time as the 1994 Vintage, so what a back-to-back test. It is one of the best Rhum Agricole's out there, and an amazing value. This one is quite strong, so you will get the alcohol burn but only very briefly. It is very flavorful, I would call it a true delight. It will be a strong 9 if you are a fan of Rhum Agricole style. Very close to the hard to find Rhum J.M. 1994.
Even letting it rest didn't seem to help it relax. Not our favorite.
Not my favorite but definitely in the top 10, only reason and purely my own taste finds it a bit too strong on the afterburn. Lovely flavours though, a cultured rum.
Fantastic rum finely balanced. Too much rum today look like syrup or liquor. This one shows that it is possible to get a tasty and fabulous elixir without artifice and additives. For purists.
It has been a while since I have seen/tasted this one. In my taste it is nearly 10. Nice and balanced flavour. Especially long and balanced "after taste" is probably the main quality I like about his Rum
Une cuvée extraordinaire. Un goût bien prononcé et assez complexe, mélange de fruits secs, vanille et café!
80€ à la distillerie mais sans regret!
Si vous avez l'occasion d'y gouter, foncez!
