Tasty, but not quite great
Beautiful presentation , on the nose , light caramel , floral and fruityish.. quite strong alcohol vapours.Something strange in the background ? Tastes of white fruits , mineral / brackish notes. Dry , slightly whiskey tones.. No burn in the throat and reasonably long aftertaste.
Im hoping the 12yr old I have improved with age.
Aroma is not bad, but first taste is alcohol kick with something strange in background...
Aftertaste is nice average with fruity tones. Agricole fans can add + 0.5 or 1 point but this is definitely not my favorite kind of rum.
Un bon rhum dans l'ensemble avec des notes épicées et sucrées (mélasse) mais le goût et l'odeur d'alcool sont très prenantes.
I can definitely taste something. I just don't know what it is, I think the high alcohol percentage adds to the over all difficulty to consume and enjoy this. I love the bottle, but the content is a bit off in taste. I know people who drink tougher stuff than this so I can understand that someone else can enjoy it but it's not really for me. I bought it just to have tried it, don't think I'll buy another one so I'll just save the bottle.
Tried the J. Bally 7y Rhum and I have to say that the bottle design is spectacular, but the Agricole Rhum's are just simply so dry that you really have to enjoy a good cognac before you can become a Rhum Agricole fan. I like my rums nice and dark and flavorful, and J. Bally 7y does not exhibit any of those characters. Its very dry and has a strong burn both at the palate as well as on the afterburn. Not my cup of tea.
A special kind of rhum ! It tasted a bit like whisky. I like whisky so it wasn't a problem for me at all.
It's not to sweet either. At one point i really was asking myself if i was drinking whisky or rhum :-)
Not for everyone i guess.
Jag tycker det är trevligt med agricole-lagrad rom men J. Bally lyckas inte riktigt nå upp i de högre klasserna med sin 7-åriga rom. Smaken är vass och kantig och det är svårt att känna vad den egentligen smakar. Raka motsatsen till de mjuka, lena solera-lagrade romen i samma prisklass. Det är en alkoholstark rom, 45% för att vara exakt, och kanske är det en bidragande faktor till smakbortfallet?
