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.
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.
Disons un 7.5 arrondi à 8. Parmi les rhums agricoles jeunes, c’est un de ceux qui me plait le plus. Bonne complexité de saveur, goût sucré très intense mais jamais écœurant bien contrebalancé avec l’alcool lui aussi très intense vu son haut degré.
Offert dans une bouteille de 700m, il est vendu (au Québec) plus cher que les autres rhums agricoles aux 750ml. /
I would give 7.5, but I’m comfortable with an 8 since it’s one of the best young agricole rum I’ve tried. What I like of it is the complexity of flavor and intensity of sweetness balanced with high degree of alcool. In Quebec, it’s a bit pricy. Even though it’s a smaller bottle of 700ml, it is sold at a higher price than other 750ml rums agricoles.
Tried a glass of J. Bally Rhum Ambre and the bottle looks pretty decent, but color is light golden. Strong floral notes to the nose plus plenty of alcohol at the taste test. Dry as a Rhum Agricole typically is. Not my cup of tea.
I'm not a fan of agricole, but I found this enjoyable: at nose caramello, exotic fruit, spices, cinnamon... at taste smooth and well structured.
