Tasty, but not quite great
Visited Guadeloupe and bought a bottle of Montebello Blanc 50 from a local grocery store. Basic bottle and label design. Cheap at EUR 9 per bottle. Typical dry Rhum Agricole flavors alongside grass, citrus fruits, vanilla and floral notes followed by a very strong and dry burn. Rhum Agricole fans can add 2 points to my score.
Fantastic nose for an Agricole Blanc. Sweetness from the cane dominates but there are also some citrus I believe. In mouth it’s a little bit oily which I think make it generous. In the end it’s of course a little bit dry and quite strong and the afterburn hangs on for quite a while.
For me it’s OK to zip neat, but maybe not for everyone. I’m sure that it will match perfect in a Ti Punch.
At last I must say that it’s a pity that it’s no longer possible to find it with the old beautiful label.

Promissing fruity smell, specific to agricole rum, very strong taste...well unfortunately in a bad way.. nothing you wanna try again..
50% abv. This rum has a tremendous nose. Super grassy, with some hay. I really felt like I was getting my vegetables! It's very "round". There's something plasticy—what I sometimes call "clean diaper" smell—fortunately not too much of that; it just helps keep things interesting.
This rum is good if you like super grassy, punchy agricoles, but I'm satisfied with one pour.
Ce rhum est atypique.il a une fermentation plus longue, ce qui lui confere un gout de canne tres fort que je n ai jamais retrouve ailleurs.il peut meme se boire sur glace.il est parfait en ti punch.belle reussite.c mon blanc prefere de guadeloupe.je v essayer les vieux cette annee avec envie.note 7.9.
