Tasty, but not quite great
For a white rum, this one is tasty. This is a blend from rhum agricole and clairin.
Glad to find this selection will definitely try now the aged one.
Nose: typical agricole style rum and cachaca.
Taste: herbal, sugarcane, sweet.
Not usually a big fan of white rums, but this one has grown on me. Started out pretty harsh, but over time it became less so. Not quite the Agricole that I expected. There is some oak. Mixed is pleasant.
I have been VERY reluctant to try these newcomer rums to the USA from Haiti. The bottles just seemed like another gimmick to get our money. A descendant of the Barbancourt family is the main one leading the way for these clairins mixed with agricoles. So after doing some research, I finally decided that today I would become a guinea pig again and be the first to try a bottle and review it.
The aroma is of an artisan cachaca, the taste eventually introduces a mild burn as from a premium tequila, and all sorts of fruit flavors slowly release themselves while swirling this around in the mouth. As my title says it, there is a lot going on with this one. I am so glad that I tried it and I like it even better than Barbancourt 15 year. And this entry level from this company only went for $23 US today. This one is unaged, but the aged versions are done is oak barrels that once held cognac.
So how strong is the aroma and taste? I mixed one part of this rum with two parts pineapple juice and the aroma and taste still prevailed!!! You get the picture. For those who love the aroma and taste to be in your face, go for it! This one is definitely not for wimps.
