Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
V pouťově kýčovité krabičce se skrývá matná hnědá láhev s nejsprostším plechovým uzávěrem jako na tuzemák a s nabubřelou etiketou zcela neadekvátní obalu. To samo o sobě u nápoje za patnáct stovek je dost šokující, ale otevřít ho bylo ještě mnohem horší. Nevoní to skoro vůbec - nelákavá stařecká zatuchlina v letním odpoledni. Chutná jako... vlastně jako nic, co znám; nejspíš jsem věci, které by tak mohly chutnat, vždy odmítal vzít do úst - plesnivé ovoce, zkyslé uzeniny, hmyz atd. Rozhodně nechutná jako naprosto nic podobného rumu.
S agricole rhumy a celou produkcí z Haiti jsem tímto každopádně skoncoval jednou provždy - asi tam umí jen voodoo...
A very nice aroma in the bottle. Hints of sweetness. The flavor is wonderful with butterscotch notes and a warmth to it rather than a harsh burn. I detect some woodiness to it but not really a strong oak so I'm not sure what they aged it in although I have read they aged it in rather large barrels. A tongue tingler for certain. A very good rum. Wished they had used a cork rather than a cheap screwcap.
Sugar: estimated at 8-10 gpl. To me it seemed that the blender added some form of sweetener to soften the Agricole bite in this rum. Okay taste with wood, caramel but it tasted like they added sweet n low to the blend leaving a what is that taste. Good mixer, but not a sipping rum for me.
This should be it! Dry, yet balanced and smooth. I don't care for the other agricoles I've tried and in general enjoy dry rums, but wow this is well done!
edited to add sugar test results- 6g
A colourful box holding an average screw top bottle. It pours a medium mahogany colour. After resting, it has a nice nose with fruit and a light sweetness. Tasting gives a caramel, light fruit, mild spicey flavour with little burn. One of the better agricole rums I have tasted. My wife bought it for me in the US and after border duties, it cost over $130 Canadian.
Had a chance to try this tonight at a local watering hole. Kind of a cool funky agricole vibe to it. A bit sweet but definitely enjoyable.
This is very nice. I’d heard that the quality had dropped off due to the horror show the last decade+ has visited on Haiti, but I’m very impressed with this. A good entree point for people curious about agricole rhum as I find a very nice balance between sweet and dry; grass and fruit! Santé!
This is a drier tasting rum that has just a touch of burn. For me not a supper but for some it will be with just a background of funk, no real sweetness.
As a mixer it is very smooth and that slight burn comes through as a nice effect on you tongue. Really liked it with citrus and very good with Coke.
Have not blended it but think it will be very good. Also might make a great rum old fashioned.
It is a sleeper with a screw cap but will probably make my keeper list.
It need character that we KNOW Barbancourt can deliver. We know, because of the independent bottlings. Try harder please.
Standard aged rum profile, sweet forward, subtle spice. A bit expensive as an everyday dipper, but in that category. Not overly complex
Not that great as a sipping rum. Heavy alcohol tastes even after letting it breathe for a while. It is best on the rocks or as a mixing rum.
Has taste of good cognac, dry, nuanced. Guess I was expecting more rum profile. Nice, but a bit of a surprise.
After a few tries I am raising my rating. Very good in a daqari recipe. Smooth, pleasant aroma.
Un ron bastante robusto, y con mucho cuerpo. Nada delicado, seco y raspa, pero una boca llena de mucho sabor. Un verdadero regalo de Haití.
belle saveur au nez. Au goût un peu épicé pas trop agressif avec un soupçon de chêne se termine avec une final modéré. À boire avec de la glace
This is some primo stuff. It has a nice aroma with just the right amount of burn needed. Goes great over some ice or in a mixed drink. This was a gift from a friend in Florida and is not available to buy here in Texas as far as I know. If you get a chance to purchase some. Please do and revel in its spicy flavor.
