Best of Agricole, I have tasted... I dont like the taste, but in this category...
Nose: sugar cane, salty, raw
Taste: sugar cane, home-made spirit like
In the UK especially if you want a Cheap agricoles for your home bar for experimentations... Not as good as Clement or damoiseau but it's a tenner cheaper so I'll forgive it and only clocks at 40%
Got this rum as the agricole element in my Mai Tais. Nice grassy herbal notes. Does nicely paired with Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 yr Rum. Very nice in my mai tai.
It's hard to find a variety of blanc agricole rums down in Miami, so I'm grateful to have this in the mix with the omnipresent the usual suspects in N. America (Clement and Rhum J.M). For the pricepoint and profile, it's a good buy, and does a very standard ti'punch, appropriately vegetal and citrusy, although not nearly as bright as La Favorite.
40º is obviously very low for this style and doesn't bring out the more exciting peppery notes you'll hit at 50º, but it will do the trick.
Okey, keep in mind this is a cheap agricole rum intended for random french supermarkets, but to me it has it's qualities… obviously not primarily for sipping, even though you should cautiously try that anyway, this is a solid mixer and the basic and cheap entry into the agricole world, even though it clearly does some older agricole rums injustice.
