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!

A sweet aroma, taste is bold but not overpowering with a smooth finish. Best served neat over rocks with a Cohiba nearby. The best with the best; truly world class!
Tonight's Rum: Barbancourt 15 Year Old Estate Reserve. A friend of mine brought me back a treat from a cruise in the Caribbean, This 15-year-old Rum from Haiti is very sweet on the nose with notes of honey and roses; strange for a demerara Rum. On the pallet, you're hit with a strong Allspice flavor. It's not expected. Only after a taste, do you notice an Allspice bouquet. It also slightly has bitter notes and chocolate. The finish on the throat is nice, it disappears, leaving lingering notes of cloves behind. 7 out of 10.... Thank you Donna.
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.
