Just back from this years rumcruise at the Baltic Sea with Birka cruises. Tested this and bought me a bottle to my Guadeloupe collection. It’s a blend of Rhum that’s at least six years old.
I’m a big fan of Guadeloupe Rhum, but I don’t think that this one can compete with best ones. But don’t get me wrong it’s very good and smooth. In nose and in mouth you can recognise vanilla, banana, citrus and wood. It’s having a fresh taste.The afterburn is quite long, dry and spicy.

I think most of the negative comments I have read about this rum comes from the fact that it is an agricultural rum, which is therefore quite different from what most (=non-French) people call rum. I am not into agricultural rum, but I found this one interesting and refined. The smell and taste are that of sugarcane, which is pretty good. This is to me what most people would refer to as a taste of herbs. Agricultural rums form a category of their own, and I suspect this one to be a very decent one. I would therefore recommend non-French rum afficionados to taste it, if they have a chance, keeping in mind that it will be different from what they know.

First sip reminds me a whisky, it's a little bit smoky with a hint of sweetness but generally it is a dry rum. Quite complex. Some hogo funk. Drinkable but not the best one.

This rum quickly grew on me. At first I wasn't thrilled with the musty, astringent nose, but those characteristics faded, and I was left with a vanilla and oak bomb. Very nice:

Domaine De Séverin XO is distilled in Guadalupe from fresh pressed cane and aged for at least 6 years in ex bourbon barrels. It's then bottled at 45%. In the glass it's light copper, with tones of brown in color, and has thick sticky legs.

The nose starts mildly astringent, which quickly fades, and allows the powerful wood to dominate. As time passes, the scent of vanilla begins to build. There is also a slightly musty smell that lingers on the background.

The palette is warm, dry and creamy. The taste of oak is noticeable on the front of the tongue, while the back of the tongue is hit with mild caramelized bananas.

The finish is medium to long, remains dry and has hints of pepper.

Visited Guadeloupe over the Holidays and truly enjoyed a great distillery tour at Domaine de Severin. Bought a bottle of XO from the distillery since they had a very limited tasting bar. Nice and sturdy bottle and label design. Surprisingly dry Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with grass, citrus, floral notes and plenty of oak to your nose and palate. Strong burn at the end being so dry. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 2 points to my score.

Fine Rum with a promising nose, sweet, vanilla...
the taste ist light but spicy and the Rum cant hide his Bourbon casks origin.
Im not into Bourbon but no reason top downvote.
It is special.

Strong alcoholic taste and a more of a whisky than rum

Maar 20ml uit een advent kalender. Agricole met whisky trekjes. Lekker.

producenci rumów odpowiadają na oczekiwania masowego odbiorcy i "sypią" cukier ... ale nie w tym przypadku! Severin XO to przykład bardzo dobrego rumu o ciekawym egzotycznym smaku i wyraźnym aromacie banana. Do picia wyłącznie bez dodatków. Jeżeli jesteś miłośnikiem koniaków, ten rum może się Tobie spodobać. Jestem w trakcie pierwszej flaszki, kupionej spontanicznie podczas zeszłorocznego Whisky Live Warsaw ;)

Un rhum assez puissant et un peu minéral aux notes de caramel

Posted almost 2 years ago by Rasmus from Denmark with 135 ratings

Agricole rum have a special place in my heart. The idea about no suger added have always intrigued me, and it is something that is needed in a world filled with sugary bombs.

Nose: Vanilla and cinnamon with a hint of baked bananas
Taste: Vanilla, brown sugar and a long, warm and almost flowery finish
Overall: This is a nice agricole rum for people wanting to get into the style. The aftertaste is a bit off for me personally, but it is a rum that everyone should be able to enjoy.

Deep amber colour. The nose is on the candied fruits, the wax of old furniture. Maybe even leather or shoe wax. A firecracker sensation after ignition. Very particuliar. In the mouth, we are on the same notes with old wood, like oak furniture. A final not very long but woody. Quite disturbing as aromatic but interesting sensation.

Liked the smell of it, but it didn't quite delivery it in the taste, not the worst rum, but not was I was first expecting.

The nose is fine, elegant, aromatic and offers a slight richness as well as gourmandise. It reveals notes of Zante currant, leather, baked banana and slight hints of white pepper
In the mouth this Rum expresses notes of mirabelle, yellow fruits and slight notes of quince associated with a very discreet hint of apricot, a slight touh of dried yellow grape

Even more whiskey notes than the previous #3 from the rum calender 2017.

Ve vůni vanilka, kouř. Chuť připomíná whisky, sušší, ale celkem vyvážená. Rum z kategorie agricole. Dávám přednost jiným

Posted over 2 years ago by Rene Rum from Switzerland with 342 ratings

Honig gelbes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase, rauchig, verbranntes, harziges Tannenholz das mit Karamell übergossen ist, dazu gibt's einen Topf voller verkochter tropischer Früchte.
Im Gaumen ein sehr kraftvoller Auftritt, kleine Vanille Bomben explodieren auf deiner Zunge und hinterlassen Aromen von Gewürzen, Früchten und gebranntem Zucker. Holznoten gesellen sich dazu.
Im Abgang schön lang, mit Bananen und einer gewürzten Süsse.
Ein leckerer und leicht süsser Agricole für Einsteiger und Geniesser. 7+

Honey yellow amber in the glass.
On the nose, smoky, burned, resinous fir wood doused with caramel, there's a pot of overcooked tropical fruit.
A very powerful performance on the palate, small vanilla bombs explode on your tongue leaving aromas of spices, fruits and burned sugar. Wood notes join in addition.
On the finish beautiful long, with bananas and a spicy sweetness.
A delicious and slightly sweet Agricole for beginners and connoisseurs. 7+

Fun to try a agricole rum but it's not for me. I wonder if I ever will apriciate an agricole rum. I hope so, maybe it takes time to learn to like them. Nose: grapes, figs and plums. Palate: grapes, figs and plums.

Smoky, fruity, with medium lenghts, whisky type of rum, worth to taste and enjoy
