troppo secco per essere un agricolo e la componente alcolica 45° si sente troppo rapporto prezzo qualità negativo

Really like the value for money with this agricole. Actually a very nice sipping rhum with a lot going for it in the falvors department. Very close to a cognac to my novice taste buds and nose.

Nice strong rum: cinnamon and vanilla nose, smooth sweet taste.

To my understanding the labling Ambré for Martinique rhum is a product based on young rhum, 18 month on barrel, seamingly with added molasses as a shortcut to more complex flavour and look.
This method of coloring is commonly used by many rum producers but the producers in Martinique clearly declare the shortcut and keep it as a separate product different from their fine aged rhum.

Based on above I rate this ambré a 5 in its segment. It is clean, strong and crisp but I will always have a problem with the unpleasant impure, fusel oil like flavour of young Martinique rhum.

It will probably go excellent well in a ti-punch eith plenty of fresh lime and brown sugar but is not for me enjoyed neat as I dont fancy the fusel-like impurity.

I go get s bottle of coke now and finish the bottle, it was not that bad...

Vass och spretigt.
Tycker att det var mer en Bourbon än en rom.
Visst det finns toner av vanilj, arrak, nougat men still not my cup of tea.

It will get you drunk, if you can stand the taste. My first and last bottle of this brand. Reminds me of the first and last time I bought a bottle of Calvados, my first thought was, i'm gonna get blind on this shit.

Not great to the nose. Trois Rivieres or Barbancourt 8 are far superior.

Lucky for me I tried it before buying a bottle because it is too dry and I found it not very pleasant. Also a little bit acid.

This hasn’t gone well. Floral to the point of tasting bad, kind of ‘mousey’ like when you don’t rack home brew for too long. I feel like it might have been a bad batch, cos they can’t have been aiming for that flavour. Soapy.

This was my first experience with agricoles. I was attracted because of the difference from normal rums and the stricter legislation (or so they told me) that guarantees a better product. I understand those who classify it as a different thing, as they do with Bourbon and Scotch. It is completely different from what I tasted before. On the nose I smelled almost an acidic, winey smell, very similar to whisky. The taste is very dry, with a mild burn. No taste of spice or sweetness, there is almost a raisin aftertaste that again remind me more of whisky or brandy. Doesn't go well with chocolate in my opinion. I recommend it to whisky lovers, but it is not really my cup of tea. The 6 is partly because of personal taste, as I love sweet rums and don't like Whisky instead.
