This rhum agricole reveals a full flavored nosing experience: floral and fruity aromas balanced with hints of white tea, bananas, honey, pineapple and cherry.
Palate is very vegetal with slightly savoury notes, round, soft and warm. The aromas of the nose continue on the palate and finish. Great for mixing! But also suitable for neat sipping.
Bought this bottle in France while driving down to Spain. The price was just 17€ for a 1L bottle at the supermarket.
The nose is grassy and I think I recognize notes of ginger, but isn’t pleasant enough.
In mouth it’s of course dry, but there is some sweetness very well mixed with the grassiness. A very savory flavored Agricole Rhum which I think is ideal for a traditional Ti Punch.

40% Dillon is also good, but this is much better for making coctails and ti punches. Not meant for sipping really, but has lots of power: grass, fruits, bit of vanilla. Try it out and you won’t regret. Very reasonably priced.
Enjoyed a bottle of Dillon Blanc 55 while vacationing in Sardinia. Bottle and label design looks very nice and unique. Proper old school design. Very reasonable EUR 17 price. Typical dry notes from the Rhum Agricole manufacturing process straight to the nose and palate with strong fruitiness and floral notes. Strong burn at the end. Mix it with your favorite soda and down it goes.
Nose is a bit hot and not super flavorful. But there's cut grass, and some plastic-y notes. In the mouth: fairly briny. Mellows after time. Also with time: cherries. I like it a lot! It just doesn't quite bring enough rich flavor to the table for being so hot.
Maybe okay for a punch, but really not great. In fact, I enjoy a good rum punch in summer and I usually reach for something else since the first encounter. A bit harsh. The bottle has been sitting since the first tasting for a year. That is unusual. Look like it will have a long life at the back of the cabinet.
Not really a sipping rum, somewhat harsh grassy notes with floral background. It still is very good in Mojitos and Caipirinhas though, where it can show its true assignment. I also could imagine some other mixes like a planters punch with parts of this Rhum Agricole
"Sipped it is very vegetal with a slightly savoury note – a degree of nuttiness. It’s certainly not as sweet but it does have honeyed element to the grassiness."
