La Thibault Courville Rhum Vieux Agricole 1960 25yr 47%

RX6885 Very good Rhum Agricole
“Courville Rhum Vieux is a smooth, historic aroma delight.”

The Courville Rhum Vieux Agricole from the historical La Thibault distillery in Martinique is a true piece of rum history. Distilled in 1960 from Sugar Cane Juice using a Column Still, this rum offers an enveloping warmth filled with sweet aromas of demerara sugar, vanilla, and creamy pastries. The rich tropical and floral notes blend perfectly with the subtle touches of tobacco and spices, luring you into its marvelous complexity. On the palate, it unrolls a symphony of flavors, predominantly woody and sugary, expertly laced with hints of fruits, almond frangipane, leather, and possibly licorice, evoking a unique profile reminiscent of the old Depaz of the 70s. This rum presents a delightful surprise for lovers of agricole rums.

“Ein weicher angenehmer Agricole, der mehr auf der fruchtigen Seite steht. Etwas später gesellen sich am Gaumen leichte Fass- und Bitternoten dazu. Im Abgang erscheinen dezente pflanzliche Aromen. Gefällt mir ganz gut… auf jeden Fall ein Stück Geschichte im Glas (Destille seit langem geschlossen) PS: für so einen alten Rum mit geringem ABV hat er noch richtig Dampf”

“#4235 03.09.2023 this was a nice blind tasting where I saw the black Glencairn tasting glasses for the first time. I wonder where this bottle came from but it was a nice surprise once revealed. Fruity with really nice flowery notes. I'd say it was close to what you pick up when you walk into a womens perfume store. Love the cherry in the profile, which is a bit light and I would have loved a higher ABV. Draws nice curtains in the glass and the empty glass has some coconut, wet grass and chocolate.”
