This is the first agricole rum i have ever tried. The first thing i noticed different to other rums was the smell. It was such a nice and pleasant explosion of aromas! I am not really fussed about smelling drinks before sipping, it was just something i noticed haha. I also found it to be ridiculously smooth, with almost no burn whatsoever. The only downside to this rum that i experienced is that the first sip was really good but it slowly decreased in enjoyment, the more you drink. That being said, this rum was a pleasant surprise and worth trying.
Visited the Montebello Distillery while vacationing in Guadeloupe. Distillery tours were closed for the season, but very nice pour yourself tasting being offered at the distillery. Montebello Vieux 10y was priced at EUR 55 per bottle. Deep amber color. Nice and good looking bottle and label design. Sweet Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with tropical fruits, grass and oak to your nose and palate. Very mild burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 2 points.
Montebello isn’t a common Agricole in Sweden, but I’ve read som good reviews and decided to buy me this 10 year old which is mid priced (~65€). It’s possible to find the 10yo as vintage 1999 and 2002 by moment. I don’t know if they differ, but the one I review here is vintage 2002.
You can feel both in nose, mouth and finish that it’s fruity, oaky and a little spicy. The finish is medium long.
When I bought it I got a sample of the 12 year old Single Cask from 1999 and maybe that affected me little when I rated this one cause that was👍🏽.

amber colour, nice legs in the glass. Rich flavour of plums, wood, cane, honey and fruits. Medium size attack which adds some spiciness to the aforementioned notes. Very long finish which is just wonderful. This is a nicely bodied rhum with a good presence and definitely not a light one.
Beautiful amber color with a very sweet and rich nose aroma combining candied fruit, honey and grass. Traditional vegetable and fruit notes of agricultural rum are also present. In the mouth, the delicate notes of honey he reveals are enveloping and complement in a nice balance with toast notes. Beautiful finish with a very long aftertaste. One of the best agricole rum experience for the moment.
