Peach and pear, with grassy (almost malty!) notes in support. A good kick of brown sugar and black pepper. Well-aged rhum agricole from Martinique's J.Bally, presented in their distinctive pyramid-shaped bottle. We wonder if the reasoning behind the shape is similar to those teabags that are pyramid shaped...?

Color: dark mahogany

Taste: complex aroma with dominating note of wood.

This is a good agricole with 45% alcohol.

A 12 year-old agricole? Sign me up!

I loved the nose. But the rum itself is just too sharp. It holds onto its agricole brine just a bit too much. And despite enjoying this slowly over the course of an hour, and it still didn't fully mellow or open up additional flavors not present at the beginning.

This "Pyramide" is recommended, if you find a good deal for it.

Van mijn vrouw gekregen :-)

Prima vieux agricole wat mij betreft.

Ik vind het net snoep.

Excellent presentation and of course the pyramid bottle.. Unfortunately the cork snapped clean in half as the wax seal was being gently removed ! Lovely amber colour in the glass , strong alcohol vapours with pears , almonds , grass and a touch of spices and a bit of caramel. Its a rum that smells better than it tastes at present. Left in the glass for ages sipping occasionally hoping for the vapours to dissipate. Sips ok , still strong and not too many flavours appearing.
This is no J.M or Damoiseau unfortunately.. tried with ice , waste of time. Only saving grace was it did get better the nearer I got to the bottom of the glass..

It would be a 6 but I'm so impressed that I think it deserves a 7, because I'm always so severe with Agricole that this one may have changed my mind. The alcohol is strong, it may need some air in the glass. Almond and sweet sugar in the mouth, no burn and not acid at all, it was a pleasant experience. Wouldn't buy a bottle but I would drink it again.

Strong and bitter. Thin body. Nothing too extraordinary. Tastr of dtry nuts. The alcohol overtakes the aromas

Enjoyed a bottle of J. Bally 12y while vacationing in Martinique. Very nice and unique bottle and label design. Plenty of floral notes followed with grass, pear and oak to your nose and palate. Strong but extremely short burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 2 points to my score.

Pur și foarte dur. Probabil un rom extraordinar pentru cine apreciază agricol. Not for me..
