“Overall an extremely elegant and smooth rum from Guadeloupe that I tasted at the Sweden Rumfest 2023. Many seems to believe it’s an Agricole, but it’s not it’s an molasses based rum. The Darboussier house started up in 1869 as a sugar factory and have taken its name from Jean Darboussier, a French trader and smuggler. This Hors s’Age is a blend of 6-8 years old molasses based column distilled rum that’s tropical aged in oak barrels, ex-cognac, ex-bourbon and ex-Armagnac.”
