Tasty, but not quite great
Ce rhum est très bon. Couleur doré. Au nez il est fruité, un peu tropical ananas et noix de coco. Au gout, aussi fruité avec une note poivré. Vieilli en fut de chêne, on ne le goûte pas tant. Un bon achat
I finally got my hands on a bottle of rum from Grenada. I had not been to the spice island in almost 30 years, so scoring this rum for me has been on my wish list for a long time.
It certainly stands out from all of the other rums. Nowhere on the label does it say that it is a rhum agricole, which probably came from it's neighbor of Martinique almost 200 miles to the north. I will just have to trust fellow reviewers who have stated that it is an agricole, along with my own experience. If no one had told me, I would have to say that it is a mildly spiced agricole, since I taste no molasses at all. It is VERY different from all other rums. You will either love it or hate it. I don't quite love it, but I certainly don't hate it. The aroma is too complex and alien compared to what I am used to. Definitely worth keeping on hand for a change of pace. Super smooth!
Update March 4, 2019: This is not a rum that I would return to often because it is just so weird. On the other hand, if you want to impress your friends with a rum that is uniquely different, then by all means go for this one. I tried to create a drink with the right mix to include this one and I just could not. Being one that can save all but the rot got from going down the drain, this was quite a disappointment. VERY unique!!! Not terrible, but it does not warrant a repeat purchase. It now drops from my initial rating of 7 to a 6.
Has a good flavor overall but the citrus is too heavily grapefruit for me. I actually don’t think it’s overpriced if you like a citrusy agricole style, but I didn’t get the banana flavor (I did get the smell) nearly as much as others are saying here (and I usually like the flavor).
Light gold colour, dry Agricole rhum, aromatic, good alcohol percentage, not the most complex rhum, fruity, banana and pineapple flavors, damp cellar flavour, pretty nice to sip, long aftertaste, nice bottle, packaging and label. From Grenada
Nice nose and palate with a quite long afterburn. It’s very fruity, a clear taste of citrus and banana. There’s also hints of spices which feels good for a rum from the island of spices.
