If I could give you an advice is to go straight to Neisson and buy one of their Vintage! Over their it cost 150euros but you have to ask a manager at the shop to get one...it was not displayed!

By the way go to Depaz It is the nicest place in Martinique and their rhums are so Gooooooood

Clement is also beautiful!

St James is very nice with their museum.

Trois rivière isn't very fantastic like La mauny but still I am pretty sure you wanna visit them ;-)

For JM and Bally never been over their :-(

At the duty free of the airport just before getting in the plane you will find a small shop with plenty of rare rhums last year I bought an HSE 1998 straight from cask and cognac finished (600bottle produced) for 60euros...still not opened.

By the way I can't understand something!
In France we do vintage because of the variation of the year and the different concentration sugar of each year!
But when we are talking about rum from molasse why are they vintaged? Are they differences between molasse from different years?

cheers

lalie I didn't think they did vintages for molasses based rums, I could be wrong though. But for molasses...

Each year, location can be different in that the weather and soil can effect the sugar content each cane has. What effects it more I think is the processing, how effective they are in removing the sugar from the cane before it is molasses. Some molasses has more left over sugar than others.


I LOVE the info about the different distilleries, and can't thank you enough for that insight, its a real gem I've got to try some of that Depaz, we only seem to get the regular one over here.

Default Martinique: Where good friends & dreams are made!

Lalie: I have got about two pinkies left of that stuff procured on my last trip there in 1996, without question a gem! What part of France is home? My best friend who I met at the Frantel on Martinique in 1983 now lives in Gareoult, Provence. My other favorite place in the world. For spirits and cuisine you have the best of all worlds. When I can figure out how to live there on love and sunshine I am.

Hi I am living in Between Lyon (the world capital of gastronomy) and the Beaujolais region (Very famous in the us for the Beaujolais nouveau).

If one day you come to France don't hesitate to send me a message I will be happy to share a glass of rhum with you.

lalie003,

I purchased a LaMauny 1979 several years ago in the UK and paid about $120for a 70cl bottle. It is very tasty and stands up to some other vintages that I have such as Bally, Clement, JM,and Trois Rivieres.

Currently my favorites are aged rhums from Damoiseau (the 15YO is outstanding) Bielle and Trois Rivieres. Trois Rivieres 1998 and 1997 Missouri Oak single cask are worth searching for. I paid about $100 for each recently and they were worth it.

Hi,

I am looking for this Lamauny 1979 but I think it may be a little pricy for what is inside the bottle! In my cellar I have a 1995 and it is very good and much cheaper. I love Lamauny with their strong rhums.

The Damoiseau 15 yrs is an amasing rhum very rich.

For the Trois rivières I never tasted one of their rhum that will make me purshase their product...Still I gotta 1997 but he will remain closed in my collection!

Cheers

I am actually contemplating on buying La Mauny 1979 at the moment. Most likely I will. I saw the bottle at a local shop here and remembered this thread.
