“Lorsqu’on évoque la Flibuste de La Favorite, on pense à un certain standard, le prestige et on se réfère au meilleur de ce que propose la Martinique. Ce Millésime 2000 ne déroge pas à la règle. Le nez est extrêmement équilibré, trouvant la parfaite harmonie entre les saveurs florales et végétales (canne à sucre et herbes), les épices douces (vanille, muscade et réglisse) les fruits secs (pruneaux et raisins secs) et les légères notes torréfiées de fruits à coque. C’est très doux et élégant, avec une belle touche de gourmandise qui fait plaisir sur un rhum aussi vieux. En bouche, l’attaque est tout aussi douce. C’est tres suave, crémeux et un peu épais, donnant de la consistance au palais. On ressent l’influence de la vanille, des épices et du bois, mais les saveurs florales et les herbes se montrent également et apportent une touche de fraîcheur agréable qui contrebalance la gourmandise. Les fruits secs et les fruits exotiques sont également présents. L’ensemble est encore une fois très homogène et aucune saveur ne prédomine. La finale est longue, toujours imprégnée des herbes et des notes florales, mais aussi des épices, des fruits secs et confits et de la vanille, avec un soupçon de chocolat. Loin du cliché du « jus de pruneaux » parfois décrié, cette cuvée se veut très élégante et douce, parfaite pour se détendre et accompagner une journée de repos.”

“This is one of my new samples I got and I had great expectations, because Flibuste is a name that comes with a note saying "Ultra Top Shelf" in my mind. My expectations were met to the fullest. The nose well balanced, sweet and definitely Agricole with fruit, vanilla and cane. There is a very light note of wood. The palate is complex, sweet and very well balanced and typical Agricole with fruit, spices, cane, chocolate with light notes og wood and nuts. The finish is medium to long and sweet with dried fruit, chocolate and spices. Leave to rest for a while to get all the notes and save the empty glass for later nosing.”

“Al naso frutta rossa, tostato e bosco. Al palato sempre frutti rossi, frutta secca tostata(nocciole e anacardi), bosco, legno, barile, il tutto corposo, denso e perfettamente rotondo. Finale lunghissimo e nel bicchiere vuoto legno e arrostito. Nel retrogusto legno umido e ammuffito/terroso. È simile al 1999 ma meno secco e più dolce”
