Bouteille au design old school, 55 cheveaux sous le capot, mais assez moelleux a la degustation !
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.
Un très bon Agricole pour les ti-punch. Les notes de canne restent présent malgré les 55 deg.
Rhum blanc bas de gamme pour préparer des cocktails. Plus pour planteur que ti'punch.
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
Je le trouve trop sec en Ti'punch mais idéal pour un planteur .
Difficult to rate this type of rum as it goes well only with cocktails ... Or arranged home made rums ...i would nevertheless switch to 40% Dillon next time. Too strong this one
A 55°, il ravage la gorge. Ne dépensez pas votre argent dans cette bouteille malgré son faible coût.
Éventuellement, il doit être bu dilué, comme base de planteur...
A éviter pour le "décollage", ça tape
une bonne base pour le punch ou le planteur, surtout au prix Martinique
Reste qu'on trouve de meilleurs rhums pour à peine plus cher.
Here`s another lively rhum agricole, great for ti-punch and in tiki drinks!
good for mixes
good for punch and ti punch
