First of all, I need to post a disclaimer/qualifier that I'm NOT a big fan of agricole rhums. I thought at best I'd rate this rhum a high '8'. But this is truly a fabulous agricole. Date on the cork says 1985 (is it really that old?)
Tastes like an agricole, but sweeter than most. Smells and tastes like it was aged in fine wine (though it says it was aged in cognac, which of course is also grape based). Also has notes of licorice, spice, sugar cane, oak, and prunes. I really enjoy this, and finally found a truly great agricole!
Wow wow wow, le bonheur est dans la bouteille quelque une de prise au passage des années, un goût improbable, une balance entre le rhum sucre les tannins les épices, une puissance en bouche et une souplesse en arrière goût, c'est la boisson des anges...
Me arriesgué mucho al comprarlo pues no había tenido la oportunidad de probarlo y el precio es bastante alto pero la verdad es que ha merecido la pena. Muchas notas a frutas tropicales y sabor potente para un agrícola de los mejores del planeta.
Tried the 1987 at the Distillery and I'm so thankful I was able to bring home 2 bottles. I'm an avid bourbon drinker and this is still maybe the best old aged liquor I've ever tasted.
Wouaw , this one is clearly on my short list ! I have discovered this one last week end and I can not stop thinking about buying one since then. What a thing ! Sweet and fruity, this rhum is really amazing.
The only problem is the limited production but when you love something .... ;-)
From my pov, this one is really a high end rhum !!!
Had the chance to taste the 1995 vintage (aged for 25 years). What a nice rum. Fruitiness and smoothness dominate from the first nosing until the very extended finish. The cellar master has made a great job as neither spiciness nor smoke flavors overpower the fruity flavor of the rhum. Given the 40% degree of alcohol the flavor intensity is substantial. In terms of quality this is a clear 10-grade for me. The only downside is (a) the expensive price and (b) the apparently reduced aging period (23 years) for the 1997 vintage which is currently sold at unchanged prices.
Just came back from a trip to Martinique, where I’ve got the chance to visit all the distilleries. There’s no rhum like this. The flavour is rich and complex like all the agricole rhum but the taste is surprisingly sweet and delicate. The best rhum in the world.
Cuvée 1991 pour moi mais j'ai l'impression que c'est pareil pour toutes les versions. Ce que j'ai bu de plus incroyable jusqu'à présent. Fort et doux, intense et subtil, un concentré d’arômes. La boisson des grands soirs.
I tasted the 1986 version of this beautiful rum coming from Martinique. Very pronounced notes of candied fruit. With grapes and prunes. Very sweet with lots of character and a nice complexity. This rum emerges in the final notes of licorice and vanilla. Great work. A great value. You absolutely must have a bottle of this brand in your bar !
