“A beautiful bottling by Excellence Rhum. This rum from the Espérance distillery (which produces Longueteau and Karukera) is a fine experiment that was first aged in cognac casks before moving on to new oak. This reverse aging gives a very interesting profile, with a nose of toasted wood and spices, but which is also very suave. Tobacco, dried fruits (grapes), walnuts, caramel and chocolate create a beautiful olfactory harmony. On the palate, the first impression is of an extremely smooth, syrupy rum with a sweetness of caramel, nougat and honey. It's only afterwards that the cognac cask adds a little liveliness, with a dry side of fruit (raisins), spices and roasted wood. The alcohol is very well integrated. The finish is very long, sticking to the palate with this sweet, syrupy side before reasserting itself on spices and roasted wood. The touch of cognac lingers and is very pleasant. A very nice rum for its age, price and accessibility.”

“Tasted this elegant and rather intense Agricole from the Esperance distillery in Guadeloupe, producer of Longueteau, at the Sweden (Stockholm) Rumfest 2024. Before blended and aged it consisted of 65% red cane rum known for its fruitiness and 35% blue cane rum characterized for its citrus notes. This blend was then rested for 1 year in stainless steel vats before being barreled in 2017 in an ex-Cognac barrel. Finally it is bottled by Excellence Rhum, 6yo in 2023 at 56,9% in just 249 bottles. The nose is fruity, mild, spicy and oily with notes of nuts, apricot and honey. At the palate it’s elegant, fruity and woody with strong apricot flavors and hints of ripe fruits and cherries. The long finish is spicy with the flavors from the palate persistent.”
