Tasty, but not quite great
Agricole. No melasse, but cane (and vanilla) in the nose.
Cane, vanilla and plum in the mouth, alcohol too. Long reminiscence in the palate: Cane and vanilla.
Of a nice golden color, this rum is something between a French Cognac and a Brazilian Cachaça - but smoother and more elegant.
Enjoyed a glass of Arcane Delicatissime from the Island of Mauritius with my friends. Arcane Delicatissime comes in a fancy black toned box with a nice blacked out bottle design and a pretty nice mint colored label. Color of the rum is mild dark. To me this rum reminds me of the very first sweet Rhum Agricole in the world. Unique for sure. Banana and marzipan are the strongest flavors to the nose and palate. Very close to the Extraroma in many ways. Not bad, but far from great.
Never had such a rum before (and I had many). It smells just like you opened a can of fruity Haribo. Predominant banana, coconut, vanilla, tropical fruits, palm, lovely. Strong, long finish, with a round body, lovely.
Very strange and difficult to judge. Liquorice taste is dominating, but I also tasted something which reminded me Advil medicine. Surprise, surprise, this combination is not as bad as it sounds.
After having had the Extraroma (which I rated 10), this was a huge disappointment. It had none of the flamboyance of it's big brother, while the price was near the same. But working my way through the bottle, the subtleties of the cane flavours do have a certain appeal. But really, for me it is the Extraroma all day long, especially as there is only a 10% or so price difference. Not a bad rum, it's just not the Extraroma which I find truly exotic and different to nearly any other rum out there.
First smell is a mix of sugar cane, plum and some (medical) ether.
On the mouth you will find fruity tast (mango and peach) and some sugar cane
The tast is light but the fruits stay long on the tong.
I like it, although I have other best picks I enjoyed this rum in a warm summer night in Italy. The odour was like bees was and a fruity fresh taste was followed by a nice malt feeling.
