Default Dzama Vieux 10 Ans

Has anyone tried this Rum from madagascar? I like the Riviere du Mat Grande Reserve from reunion a lot and would like to find out if there are more high quality Rums destilled in the indian ocean area. Cheers

While searching another subject I discovered this (short) thread.
I have a soft spot for this lesser known rum area.
Dzama is different of Réunion rhums, but if you can afford it ('cause quite expensive) it is worth the journey.
Sadly, the big Isle has seen a lot of political instability and this is not good for trade. Terms of trade also have changed with UE and are less favorable for imported rums. (this applies also for La Réunion and Maurice rums) all this leads to higher prices compared to West Indies rums.
Dzama has a lot of rhums, white and olds, and an excellent vanilla flavored.
But I think since you wrote , you had an opportunity to try (and love) them!

you can find them here :

from Maurice:

from La Réunion, it is easier (if not cheaper, alas) to find and you have a lot younger rums in supermarkets and online:

Thank you Jolipapa,
I tried the Dzama 10 Ans a few month ago and really like it a lot. But like you said it`s quite expensive. Unfortunately there`s no Rum from
Madagascar and Reunion available here in Mauritius at all, but still enough local
Rum

Yes there's enough mauritian rums to taste!
There are also not too expensive flights to La Réunion or to Mada, and it is worth visiting both as they are completely different of each other and of Maurice also, of course.
