Default Macouba Rhum

Have some Macouba 12. y.o. from Martinique - still sealed - any tasting notes out there?

I would characterize that rum as quite dry with a lot of dark fruit - prune, and blackberry, in the body, with cinnamon, cardamon being revealed in the finish. But you have to appreciate that that rhum has not been bottled for some time and like most rums, it varies slightly from year to year of bottling.

Default Rhum Macouba

Hi there,
as I have travelled quite often to Martinique I also visited Macouba in the very north several times. So I was really surprised to discover a rhum once being distilled in or around Macouba that is not Rhum JM (which is in fact my favorite old rhum agricole). I bought this bottle of "Reserve antique 21 years" that I am not able to figure out where it had been distilled. As far as I know, there has been another distillery at Macouba, just before entering downtown. Can anyone tell me more about the background or history of this Reserve antique?
I never regret buying this bottle. It provides the strongest caramel and toffee flavor I ever tasted in any rhum. This makes it quite different to Rhum JM.

I saw Macouba rhum agricole on Martinique a number of years ago but haven't seen it on the shelves recently. I'm afraid it is one of the brands which used to be distilled and bottled on Martinique, then was bottled by someone else then disappeared.
