Tasty, but not quite great
Most of the agricole rums I've tried have been from Clement which I have liked to varying degree. This one is a vit spicier and a little getting used to on the rocks. It makes a good mixer.
A very fruity smell, some glue, sweet, straw. The first taste reminds of a Whisky, not really sweet, slightly sharp and fruity during the finish. A nice one...
Данный ром меня разочаровал, слишком землистый вкус, пресный. Цена-качество явно не соответствует. Хотя аромат достаточно приятен на первых порах - запах лимонного пирога, спиртуозность на минимуме.
Very nice for an Agricole, but nothing special for me. A little bit of harshness on the nose in the beginning, quite pleased by the taste, not grassy like other Agricole. A little bit of vanilla taste, you can feel all the 43 abv.
I wouldn’t buy it again but it wasn’t the worst I’ve had. Somewhat personality free. Just tastes like alcohol, I’m having trouble being any mire descriptive than that.
Alot of history with this Rhum. Classic look to the bottle. The VSOP does not disappoint. A grassy cinnamon and clove flavor with a beautiful finish ..
Great for traditional tiki recipes or to sip if you like agricole.
What an interesting drink.
The nose of this rum just has a lot going on, and I feel like I get a different collection of smells every time I go for a sniff here. Butterscotch, solvent, vanilla, maybe a bit of cherry, some smoke, maybe cooked apricot or plum, touches of baking spice, it's complicated here. Maybe a bit too much alcohol on the nose, even after letting it breathe a bit.
Immediately on the palate I get toasty warmth, a bit of burn, but not an unpleasant amount, and a really mild, almost imperceptible toffee sweetness that runs right into, like, a banana ester flavor, which itself melts gradually into savory roasting herbs and spices. Toasted clove or allspice, maybe some cinnamon. Imagine a holiday roast. Really quite savory, almost becoming meaty, cut by that alcohol, all with a constant undercurrent of toasty, buttery, peppery, slightly grassy woody-ness. The finish is kind of short and subtle, but, surprisingly, quite fruity! I get almost a nectarine finish. Some kind of stone fruit, for sure.
It's quite dry, overall, and most of the little sweetness there is in the drink runs out pretty early on as its flavors develop.
There's a lot going on, throughout the whole thing. Ultimately, I don't know if its one of my favorite rums, but exploring it has been a really satisfying, and occupying, experience. I really want to rate this a '9,' but there's just something strange about that turn into those roasting spice flavors that doesn't feel as coherent as I'd like.
