It is the special niche of rums, that I am slowly getting my interest for. It’s whiskey-rums. Tastes like petrol, wood and tires. Not a bad one.
I loved this rum, a perfect balance of scotch-like oak and rum sweetness. Very smooth, not overly dry. It’s simple, almost half scotch, half cane flavors, but it works really well. I’d give it a 10 if it wasn’t an agricole because I felt like the usual grassiness wasn’t there, and it was almost like a molasses rum base with just enough difference to tell it wasn’t. Still excellent.
When people here the word agricole they often associate it with dry or even harsh rums, but that is a misconception and this brand of rum is a perfect example of the more rounded and balanced agricoles.
Nose: Vanilla, pine and burned toast. Very earthy and juicy in the back.
Taste: Cinnamon, orange and mint blends well with a small hint of funk in the aftertaste.
Overall: If people want to get into agricoles this is one of the best ways to start. It is not overpowering on the "harsher" notes while still bringing the trademark taste of a true agricole.
This quite young agricule rhum is has typical aroma which is fresh fruity with hints of wood. In the taste there is lot of wood than hints of mint and liquorice. Aftertaste is fresh and fruity with hints of citruses and sweetness in the end. For 7 years quite interresting agricole rhum worth trying.
The smell is grass, lemongrass, licorice and mint candy, hint of wood, the taste is pleasantly smooth and full, starts with honey-like sweetness (without added sugar), lemongrass, deeper tones of wood and cocoa, turns into aftertaste of toffee and licorice, ending with mint candy and lemon grass. I am still trying to get to terms with the Agricole rums, the characteristic grassy undertone in both smell and taste is something I am still learning to love, but this Agricole has style and depth.
Au premier nez c est le boisé et la canne qui se font principalement sentir.
En bouche le boisé reste très présent ce qui pour moi est un marqueur très fort des Saint-James. Le fruits à coque prennent la relève suivi d arômes particulièrement fumé. La finale assez longue se prolonge sur la canne fraîche.
