2001 Damoiseau Rhum Vieux 10 Year Old Agricole Rum (700ml)

GUADELOUPE
$120. 00 Bottle
$1440.00 Dozen
ABV: 42%
This superb rum was matured for 10 years in x Bourbon barrels then bottled in 2011.

Tasting note: Attractive deep gold ochre appearance. Varnish in the opening sniff blows off to reveal gorgeous and pure scents of buttered toast, sweet tobacco, old books and vanillin oak; several minutes of air contact releases chocolate covered cherries, old leather and dilute maple syrup. Final inspection finds creamy soda alongside hints of dried grass. Outstanding aromatic complexity. Fuller and richer than Damoiseau’s younger bottlings, yet with no compromise on the freshness or purity, it features nougat and dried banana flavours infused through a mildly grassy base note, all brilliantly balanced with restrained sugars and banana peel returning late into the aftertaste. Buy this terrific effort for the nose alone. Bravo! 42% Alc./Vol.
