This rum is quite dry; I prefer a touch of sweetness in my rums.

Vegetal sugarcane, oak, vanilla, and pepper. Not bad, but not a great rum either, imho. Not worth the price to me of $69.99 (K&L Wines 2015).

This is my first agricole of any type. Bought it for creating certain tiki drinks. I've tried a sip but need to try again to get a true idea if it's qualities. It certainly was nice in my Three Dots and a Dash.

Aged agricole to me are usually too oaky and tame, losing the freshness that makes blancs so great. This one is a great balance and retains some of that agricole bite to it.

Very good neat, but not as smooth as I would hope for a rum at this price point.

Rum tasting in Los Angeles continued onwards with Neisson Reserve Speciale Rum. Old school bottle and label design. Light golden color. Plenty of oak mixed with vegetal and floral Rhum Agricole notes to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Strong and dry burn at the end.

This is a very dry, earthy agricole with strong grass notes. It's a bit rough but still easily sippable neat. Will need to compare with Neisson white.

It's about what I figured from Neisson, it's slightly smoother.

For a Martinique vieux agricole, it’s not so bad - surely a costly addition to any US collection, and questionably suitable as such for that alone. But it’s a smooth talker with just a memory of its fiery past as an ardent blanc from 12 years ago. It has been hard to truly like vieux agricoles over 8 yrs, in general; for me, it’s all about that fiery youth that makes this style shine, and so much of that is lost in the adulteration of the spirit during the fût sitting period. It’s certainly a handsome bottle presentation, and a fine selection for your regular whiskey aficionado, but the mellowness just kinda loses me with the hint of sweetness presumably imparted by the charred barrel and a flabbiness associated with middling French red wines.

All said and done, this is a fine example of a vieux agricole in the upper end of the aged spectrum - not a standout, but far better than El Dorado’s equivalent expression.

This was the full-bodied sample on a French tasting I did, and I by far preferred this to the light and medium bodied samples. Much smoother and easier to enjoy as a sipper. I had to add water to the others to make them more palatable, but the Neisson stood on its own. Still not my favorite and not one I would rush back to, but it did at least leave me curious enough to try more agricoles.

Rather dry if you're not used to agricoles, but fruity with noted of vanilla and pepper. There's a sense of spicyness and citrus that is enjoyable.
The finish is longer than you're usual Rhum.

Un neisson peut en cacher un autre...très beau nez, sec boisé et épicé (poivre clou de girofle) en bouche une attaque vive mais douce et boisé ! Un longueur moyenne. A tester !

This rum erupts from the glass with a lovely bouquet—full of sweet oak and red wine. It's the sweetest Martinique agricole I've tried to date. For me (someone who reads "this rum is sweet but not too sweet" as "this rum is definitely way too sweet"), it's *almost* too sweet, but not quite. And it's super delicious.

After breathing for 15-20 minutes, strangely, it seemed to dry out a bit. Its smooth veneer started to give way to some "harsher" character—which I thought was delightful. That's what pushed it up to 9.

Not sure it's totally worth the msrp, but it is very good, and highly recommended.

Voici un rhum agricole issu d'un assemblage de plusieurs millésimes,

Au nez, je le trouvais personnellement très léger, j'y retrouvais de timides notes poivrées et boisées,
En bouche, il est plus marqué et un peu astringent (ce qui n'est pas désagréable), on y retrouve les notes poivrées et boisées du nez, ainsi que des notes fruitées,
La longueur est belle mais pas extra :)

Note : 65/100

Une attaque un peu dur, allant vers des note vanille puis fruit confit.

Posted about 3 years ago by Matthew Brown from United States with 27 ratings

I'm a fan of this agricole but it is a super specialist when it comes to the genre. The aging really doesn't tone down the agricole-ish but accentuate it. The fresh cane comes off like fresh grass and green olives. A really interesting cocktail ingredient and a lovely if not sophisticated, early in the night sipper. But again, highly specialized.

Légèrement boisé, avec un nez assez prononcé. Bons arômes en fin de dégustation.

I'm not sure i've ever tasted a rum quite this dry and "green" tasting. Not for everybody. Decent agricole though, if you are in the mood for something dry and french.

Ce rhum va vous réveiller ! C'est un vrais rhum agricole assez sec. Personnellement, je les préfère un peu plus doux mais il avouer que l'on aime le boisé, c'est bien visé !

Un bon agricole qui a le goût d'un agricole. C'est un rhum sec sans cette surdose de sucre qu'on trouve dans la plupart des rhums, sans pour autant enflammer les gencives. On ne boit pas du sirop ou de l'alcool à bruler mais du rhum. On retrouve en bouche la chaleur et les saveurs typique d'un agricole qui plairont a ceux qui aiment ce type de rhum mais peut être pas aux amateurs de rhum doux.
This is a good agricole that taste like it should. It's a strong and dry rum without the extra added sugar you can find on most rum but it doesn't burn your mouth either. You don't drink syrop or pure alcool here, it's rum. On the mouth you can feel the typical warmth and flavor of the agricole's rum. It will please the one's who like this kind but maybe not the sweet rum lovers.

I am not very knowledgeable concerning agricole rums so I will offer my thoughts:

The flavor has a noticeable mild sweetness but that is quickly replaced by a marked oak flavor that is not overwhelming. There isn't a harsh burn but more of an overall warmth. It is a very good dry rum.

This rum is dry, a mix of chili, pepper and vanilla, strong and long finish
