Strohgelb im Glas.
In der Nase frisch und sehr fruchtig, weisse Trauben, Birne, Äpfel, Kiwi. Die Rhum Agricole typischen grünen, herben, grasigen Noten sind deutlich zu erkennen. Getoastetes, karamellisiertes Holz ist dezent im Hintergrund wahrzunehmen.
Im Gaumen, wow, so sanft für seine 1.5 Jahre. Ein ganzer Topf voller Früchte spült es einem in den Mund. Das getoastete Holz trommelt mit seinen Karamell-Sticks auf den Geschmacksknospen herum. Fein gemahlene Gewürze entfalten ihre Aromen.
Im Abgang bleiben die Früchte lange und die werden Gewürze stärker, Anis, Fenchel, Lakritze..
Klasse ! Für "nur" 1.5 Jahre ein geiles Teil ! Für Agricole Geniesser zu empfehlen.
Straw yellow in the glass.
In the nose fresh and very fruity, white grapes, pear, apples, kiwi. The typical Rhum Agricole green, bitter, grassy notes are clearly recognizable. Toasted, caramelized wood is discreetly visible in the background.
On the palate, wow, so gentle for its 1.5 years. A whole pot full of fruits washes it into your mouth. The toasted wood drums around the taste buds with its caramel sticks. Finely ground spices unfold their aromas.
In the finish, the fruits remain long and the spices become stronger, anise, fennel, liquorice...
Great ! For "only" 1.5 years a hot part ! For Agricole connoisseurs to recommend.
Rum tasting in Hamburg with my friend included Neptuns Rhum. Handwritten label is a very nice touch. Light golden color. Soapy citrus over powers all the fragile Rhum Agricole grassy notes. Extremely strong and dry burn at the end.
Dry rum with citrous aroma, but too harsh alcohol and too short finish, not my type
Flensburg, Germany have a rich tradition when it comes to rum, but still the act of making the rum itself is a newer concept in the city. There is hope, but improvement is needed after tasting this one.
Nose: Citrus, banana and some salted oats
Taste: Citrus, apricot and vanilla. Quite sweet aftertaste where the citrus takes complete control
Overall: I really hoped that this would have been a good one, but there is simply to much citrus in this young rum for it to be enjoyable for me. I look forward to tasting more from this producer, but this one is not for me.
Sorry but is Not for me. Smells like citron and Not smooth enough for me.
Very fruity, can taste pear. Wow but it’s harsh and quite a burn as it goes down
Duft af pære og banan, måske en anelse æble med en strejf af peber. En lille snert af frugt i smagen i starten, inden hele munden bliver overtaget af peber med et lille touch af vanilje til sidst? Er ikke den store tilhænger af rom, der ikke har lagret særlig længe. Denne har kun1,5 år i fad. Det er efter min mening ikke nok til at lagre færdig. Tilbage på fadet igen. (17. December 2018)
In the nose i can sense pears and honey.
Taste is creamy again with hints of pears.
After taste is mildy sweet with hints of rasins.
Overally it is very close to pear brandy but rum character is missing imo.
Dalsi z kousku agricole. Ve vuni jsou vyrazne citrony a trava. Chut je vuni odpovidajici. Me prilis neoslovil, ale verim, ze fanousky tohoto druhu rumu oslovy.
Nice aftertaste, that is the only positive I can say about this. It burns, and has weird flavor and nose to it, like some house paint.
Lucka 17. Mild och god. Citrus, sötma och lite vanilj
Doft av citrus och gräs, mild och god smak, lite citrus och vanilj.
Additive free, german produced rum with cane juice.
Light golden color with a nice and interesting nose consisting of juniper, sweet pears, apricot and citrus, reminding me a lot of a gum i used to chew as a kid called “tutti frutti”. The notes from the nose carries over to the taste and is complemented by oak and baking spices. Solid mouthfeel and body, slightly dry with a decently lasting finish composed of the tutti frutti notes. I must say that I’m surprised and impressed.
sugar cane juice. dry rum.
the company fsm launched the new neptuns rhum in germany. they get the juice from columbia, known from dictador as example. it was completly distilled, aged and bottled in germany. more accurate it was aged in flensburg the biggest european harbour for rum in the past. also the neptunus was the first sailing ship with rum on board entering the flensburg harbour ever. 0% coloring, 0% sugaring, 100% authenticity.
color: fresh golden light
nose: fresh, fruity, pear, citrus, vanilla.
mouth: apricot, pepper, vanilla, pear, raspberry.
for that kind of rum very smooth and kind. on the other hand it lacks depth.
a good job, a good start for a rum without sugar and out of sugar cane juice. for the first try.
