Damoiseau – 5 ans

Rating: 8 out of 10

Nose: Smells both smooth and spicy. Woody, vanilla, cognac. Candied tropical fruits, not fresh ones. Eucalyptus, herbs, honey and some slightly fusel notes.
Mouth: This is what a well aged rhum agricole tastes like. Strong notes of fresh sugar cane, and newmake straight from the still. Peppery, but sweet. Some bearable heat towards the finish and some really dense woody undertones of laurel.

Both youthfull and well behaved. Quintessentially agricole.
