HSE Hors d‘Age 1960 45%

RX4113 Excellent Rhum Agricole Above 250€
“Exceptionally smooth and complex rum, boasting flavors of exotic fruits and spice.”

The HSE Hors d'Age is a legendary Agricole rum, lauded for its remarkable complexity and subtlety. Distilled in 1960 at Martinique's Distillerie du Simon, it elicits a mosaic of scents, combined of leather, tropical fruit, candied aromatics, along with hints of nutmeg and vanilla. The palate is a symphony of Vanilla, tropical fruit, woody elements along with an underlying layer of brown sugar, making it highly appreciated among the aficionados. Described as smooth, silky and notably well-balanced, it features distinct impressions of chocolate, liquorice, and coffee, elegantly wrapped in vanilla undertones. A hint of exotic fruit persists throughout. Its long-lasting, dark-tinged finish leaves a memorable impression, with traces of tobacco and hazelnut. Despite its ABV of 45%, it's remarkably creamy and intense, promising an absolute pleasure to the senses.

“Dove back into a retaste of this one and it's still a very good release. Despite the steep price of 1300, - euro I decided to buy this bottle and opened it for a taste after it arrived yesterday. Wow, this is a great rum, though expensive I must say it's almost a perfect rum.”

“Un des rhums agricoles les plus mythiques et les plus élaborés qui soient. Le nez débute avec une micro-pointe de solvants, avant de laisser les fruits exotiques prendre le pas, suivis par les notes sucrées (toffee, notes confites) puis laisse un profil assez boisé, sombre et épicé s’instaurer avec élégance, finesse et intensité, tout en laissant le fruité (fruits rouges, secs) présent à certains moments. Cette trame se retrouve en bouche avec une grande complexité et beaucoup de subtilité. C’est huileux, crémeux, intense, très rond et élégant, avec des notes de chocolat, de cuir, de réglisse, de café, de cannelle et de vanille et une pointe de fruits exotiques. La finale, interminable, poursuit sur le profil sombre, avec des notes de tabac et de noisette. Un rhum légendaire et excellent.”

“Er... Too short in the mouth. Lots of flavor, explosive in the mouth but falls right back and no length. A hint of sweet licorice lingers on the palate.”
