Tasty, but not quite great
This review is for the Barbados bottling. This bottling is quite smooth overall. I did not detect much sweetness on this but rather just a clean rum experience. There are many better rums out there for flavor but this is a clean rum without many edges.
I’ve had this a few times and have not been impressed. I would use this only as a mixer. Has a harsh flavor alone and needs to be cut.
This rum was a bit over prices when I got it and I did not care for the harsh flavor. I ended up using this as a mixer rum that I wouldn't wait to be finished with.
I had this years ago on a recommendation from a friend for an Agricole rum to try. Agricoles arent really my thing. I prefer bigger English style rums. I found it a bit hot not as flavorful as ide like.
I have not found a bottle of this in a few years. I remember how unique it was and how smooth it was going down. I usually drank it on the rocks. Being so smooth, it was very easy to knock away a whole bottle in one day, and with no penalty whatsoever the next day.
Let's just say that it is a modified agricole or cachaca without any matching tastes to those, nor does it have any additives. It is a light gold colored white rum, so yes, it does have an identity problem, which is maybe why I liked it so much. It was light years better than mass produced mixers and at about $30 per bottle, it was too expensive to use as a mixer. Also, when consumed on the rocks, there was no hangover the next day, which is probably another reason that I like it.
As others have said, this is best described as an expensive mixer, which is probably why it is so hard to find these days. I do believe that it has been discontinued. But if I saw a bottle on the shelves, I would gladly buy out whatever few they had left.
If this is going into a classy mojito then I could get behind this choice. But by itself? Not worth the asking price.
From reading the description I was expecting something with more of a vegetable like taste, like a rhum agricole or a cachaca. It has a sweet but clean aroma with hints of lilac and honey, and a smooth taste with a hint of orange peel and very little burn. Not a lot of flavor as a sipper, but would be great on ice with a twist of lime, or in a fruity cocktail like a classic daiquiri.
Del jugo de la caña en vez de la melasa, éste ron agrícola sorprende por su color, muy original pues ni blanco ni dorado sugiere suavidad pero se presenta algo alcohólico y sin muchos sabores.
It did not taste sweetened. Nothing offensive. Average finish. Would mix just fine. Not enough of a flavor profile to drink neat. Probably hard to justify the cost for a mixer.
