4 yrs old - very nice smell and color, totally authentic taste of sugar cane - so typical for agricole rhums. I love it. It is a bit stronger while including only 42% alc.,
but idealky sweet at the same time. I like drinking it after tough days at work, though. Definitelly, it can be recommended!!
Had the pleasure of drinking some agricole rhums directly at Martinique, this one is a huge surprise! I don't care girls think it's too harsh, this if what agricole should taste like, even though finish could be more interesting. Won't screw up your mixed drink, even though I wouldn't pick this one purely for mixing, but you people know how thinks work once it's late in the night.
Wasn't really in my wheel house. Liquor forward and not a bunch of depth. Not horrible either, Save it for the cocktails
I love agricole for the delicious grassy notes and fresh feel you get from it . This is kind of combining a young oak barrel aged rum and agricole and simply is not what agricole is about ... I may revist this in a ti punch to see if it's any better
First you get a very simple nose, I get some citrus and pepper and some sugar cane.
The taste is not very balanced. Some aromas are too weak some are too strong.
Because of this disbalance I rate it 6.
Smell: citrus, pepper, some sugar cane, floral notes, earth
Taste: paper/grasy note, vanilla, citrus, some bitterness
Finish: spice, medicine, light sweetness and white fruits
Aftertaste: fuity and better than the nose and the taste
tried it when visiting the distillery. Pretty smokey in mouth and not very desirable to drink on its own. Probably a good mixer, but given the price tag, there are much better alternatives (Neisson, HSE, Dillon blanc etc.).
Got a bottle of Saint James Vieux from a local grocery store on my last night here at CDMX. Bottle and label design looks very nice and unique. Strong alcohol from the sugarcane method and such a burn to your nose and palate. This is not a neat sipper due to such a strong burn, so mix it up with your favorite soda.
Classic French style Rhum agricole from Martinique with a Smokey dry taste. Great dark colour with a not to strong nose. Sipping gets you hints of wood, vanilla and a subtle alcoholic taste.
