Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I have the 8yo and the 15yo in the old green bottles and it can’t compete with them of course.
But it’s really not bad at all. I think that the fruitiness dominates especially in nose and afterburn. Besides that it’s oaky and spicy.

The first agricole I've tasted, that tastes a lot more like regular aged molasses rum. Still a bit of that acetone smell that is normal for agricole and some of that funk, but it all feels muted. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing but I like it.
42% but feels a little hotter. Starts off with a big nose of oak and leather. Once it breathes the sugars start to come through along with a bit of orange peel and the oak turns to vanilla. Give it more time and a scent of cut grass and pineapple make an appearance.
Sipped it lights the tongue up with heat. It's stringant from the oak, viscous, smokey and sweet. The cane is not missing one bit here and finishes with dark chocolate caramel. It lingers too.
Overall fantastic and does not disappoint on any level.
Well, it's a good rum all around with fine notes of cocoa and wood. Long aftertaste, balanced, a little bit too dry.

Jobbat reméltem. Még meg iszom tisztán ,de nekem ebbe kell a jég hogy kivegye az engem bántó alkoholt és a végén jobban kiemelje a kandírozott gyümölcsös lecsengést. De kólával király.
A very fruity smell, sweet, light alcoholic and sharp. The taste is sweet, light flowery and alcoholic, quite nice. The finish is medium long.
Nice dark gold agricole from real sugarcane. Not a long aged rum but gives you the typical French island rum hues. Not for everyone but would make a hell of a good authentic Ruhm Ti punch.
A solid agricole. Subtle floral and grass notes. Very smooth. Decent balance. Nice sugar and coffee notes that stay on the pallet. Oak and tobacco in the background also. Finish is very good but not quite as good as the XO. Very drinkable. Better on ice than neat.
