Dzama Vanilla 10 ans is first and foremost a very old rum, 10 years old. Unusually for a rum of this maturity, a Madagascar vanilla bean has been added.
Nico's tasting notes
The nose of this rum is for the most refined gourmets. The vanilla blends with the aromas of mature brandy, for a woody taste that is both tender and mellow. It is a sort of creamy cake batter, with fatty almond and vanilla notes of course, all enhanced by a touch of old rum. The time gives pride of place to the Madagascar vanilla, which unfolds without limits, with a greediness that does not count any either.
The palate is very soft and immediately invaded by a very dark and fragrant vanilla. Its full-bodied, natural pod offers softly spicy, almost woody notes, very rich and greedy. The oak and spices add a little bit of a kick in the middle, but the undisputed star remains the vanilla so dear to this island of Madagascar.
The finish is round and pastry-like, with a rather sweet sensation and a touch of milk chocolate.
"A melting, vanilla-flavoured rum, an unreasonable delicacy..."
