Now this is some good stuff
I previously tried the 12 and I am a big fan of it. So my expectations for the 23 were high. It disappointed greatly.
The good: Nice presentation. Beautiful mid-amber colour. Gorgeous bottle. Brown sugar and a hint of butterscotch on the nose. A little alcohol too, but that’s ok.
The bad: Medicinal taste. No really positive flavour notes can come out because of the overpowering medicinal flavour. Far too much burn for a 23-year-old rum. Even the aftertaste makes you want to drink something else to get rid of the taste.
The 12 is substantially better. I am a fan of Dominican rums, I don’t recommend this at all. Especially not at $100+ here in Canada.
Dominican Republic. Agricole. The first real aged rum I tried, so hard to rate - 7 may be giving me room for rums I try later. Very dry, but enjoyable.
I only tried agricole from martinique and guadeloupe, this one is really good for an agricole, smell really good, the bottle is beautifull and different.
Honestly I was expecting more. Don't get me wrong, this is a very enjoyable rum, but it's no where as complex as I thought it would be. And that's ok. Personally, I'll stay with my El Dorado 15 year.
