“Un jeune rhum VSOP au profil agricole assez classique. Les notes de canne à sucre se conjuguent aux épices, à un léger boisé fumé et aux quelques arômes fruités plus succincts. En bouche, l’attaque est douce et maîtrisée. On ressent les notes de foin, de noix et de caramel qui complètent un palais très conventionnel. On perçoit la dilution de l’alcool, ce qui est dommage. La finale, assez moyenne, laisse un profil à la fois floral, sec et épicé, qui est un peu plus abrupt que le reste de la dégustation. Ce n’est pas un mauvais rhum, mais il y a d’autres rhums VSOP qui proposent beaucoup plus au nez et en bouche, pour un prix similaire.”

“This rhum is fine-pearled and oily in the glass, smells of plums, somewhat woody and slightly of licorice with a hint of baking powder. The taste has something chocolaty, something of cappuccino and cognac with a woody note. The finish is long, dry with a metallic note, sometimes intense.”
