K&L Notes

The exceptional Rhums from the Damoiseau family of Guadeloupe are finally available stateside. The famous estate and distillery at Bellevue has produced some of the French Antilles finest agricole rhum since 1942. Over 75% of production is consumed in Guadeloupe and surrounding islands and we're lucky to have this exceptional Agricole Rhum producer on our shelves. As with AOC agricole, this is made in the traditional manner, distilled from freshly fermented cane juice pressed directly from harvest. Maturation is in used bourbon casks and the distillery has over 3000 barrels of rum quietly aging in the tropical heat. The XO starts to move into darker flavors, retaining some of that bright tropical fruit, but also highlighting dense orange peel (à la Grand Marnier), powerful spice, and rancio, with hints of the finest fresh tobaccos in the background. With a minimum aging of six years it's truly incredible how much complexity is achieved and one wonders if they didn't add a little something older to get this blend so good.
