Default Comparison tasting

There just happened to be a nice selection of dark agricole rums out on my counter as I was re-organizing the rum collection. So a little tasting seemed in order. I was surprised at how often I preferred the younger to the older!

1) Clement XO
2) Neisson ESB
3) Neisson Reserve Speciale
4) St. James Ambre
5) St. James Hors de Age
6) Depaz
7) JM ESB
8) JM 1997
9) JM VSOP
10) Clement VSOP

Early in the evening, or day, I prefer the younger agricoles but after dinner rhum vieux or a number of other old rums are just what the doctor ordered. I swear I've got that prescription somewhere here.
