Tasty, but not quite great
Very good is quite different on what I use to drink (Barbancourt) very smooth and no harsh alcohol feeling, I was expecting more like herbal flavor but is very dim.
Taste: smooth, kind of reminds me like a Cognac.
The aftertaste is where you feel more the herbal and sugarcane properties.
This agricole rum has a fantastic mahogany color. In the nose you have mostly orange marmelade, vanilla and a hint of coffee. The palate still tastes the orange flavours as well as the vanilla. Long finish.
On opening bottle nose is hot bourbon, strong. After resting in glass for 10 minutes the nose becomes pleasantly oak and vanilla. Palate is smooth, but unmistakable bourbon. As I am not inclined to bourbon, I appreciate the craftsmanship, but not really what I am looking for. Finish is bourbony with some tropical hints that linger. This is probably best for those who appreciate bourbon.
Nice rum with caramel and Toffee forward flavors. Smooth and easy to drink. A bit short on the finish and I wish this had a bit more body and bit bolder flavor profiles. However it is wonderful Sipper at it's price point ($35 where I picked up).
Surprisingly good for an agricole, but still not my cup of tea. Feels more like a Cognac than rum to me. But it's a good spirit overall that's smooth and not just an alcohol burn
This is lovely and introduced me to a whole new world of rums! This is lovely in a rum old fashioned or a three dots and a dash! Glad to have it in my collection!
I needed a Rhum Agricole to make some Mai Tai's and this one does the job pretty well. On its own, it's nothing too special but definitely tastes fine. It does however compliment over rums really well in cocktails so its worth trying for sure.
