Nice rum with pleasant and rich nose producing 3 main components: coffee, cane sugar and pecan nuts. Pleasant and easy-going, sweet but having surprisingly short aftertaste as for 20 yo distillate.
Nose: Sweet, thick, coffee, brown sugar, pecan nuts, caramel, vanilla, hint of cinnamon
Palate: Sweet, slightly spicy (ginger, cloves, cardamom), latte, caramel, honey notes, herbs with light bitterness, oak on the background
Finish: Short, sweet, somewhat dry, oaky, notes of dried dark fruits
Pretty much cocoa/vanilla/caramel taste which is not bad. The after taste was pretty dry but warm, smooth.
Smell is very addictive, even mine non drinking wife grab the glass just to smell it for couple of minutes.
Tested in Air Cafe, Brno, Czech Republic
when compared to the 12 Yr, this smell is more pleasant and smells like a higher quality rum. Very smooth taste, rich and buttery like the 12 yr, but smoother. I also did a side by side of this against ED21, and this seemed a little more abrasive with more alcohol and apples/pears on the nose. ED21 seemed much more complex, pleasant, and mellow on the nose. 85+
This is my first agricole, and I'm not disappointed. I like its very smooth taste and i do smell and taste a very strong sense of coffee. For me its the main taste and smell, but I have to mention that a friend of mine who tried this rum said he didn't smelled or tasted coffee at all. So, maybe it's just me, but i think it's a very "coffeey" rum – which isn't a bad thing! :)
Neni tak sladky jako Papa. Ma ale uzasnou vuni a vyvazenou chut - koreni, karamely, kandovane ovoce...stredne dlouhy nasladly konec.
Don't get me wrong, this rum is incredibly well made and pretty smooth. The reason I give it an 8 is because this is a very heavy dark rum that has a strong molasses flavor profile. If you like that sort of thing you will love this rum. My preference leans more toward the lighter, caramel, vanilla, fruit, or spice profiles (such as Parce 12 year) and the molasses forward flavors tend to be my least favorite. But this is incredibly well made and of very high quality.
