Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
First, I would like to underline this is a quality rum. You cannot mispick this, it is absolutely good.
But... From this on this depends on yoir taste. I do not like this taste, this is why the score 7. The taste is strong, catches your throat, tongue and does not let it for a minute at least. Which is not a problem if you like this.
What I taste is medium-low sweetness, strong oak and overwhelming flawours in you nose with some smokey taste.
If you like dring grabbing you by your neck try it - otherwise let it go :)
I drink neat most of the time, on occasion with a large rock so my view of rums is all about the rum. As I explore the many rums available I have found that even by paying way up for a special bottles I always find myself comparing those rums to the K&S 23 and asking why did I spend that money. And although the price is not entry level it is not over the top, in north Georgia it is going for about $50 US. A bargain.
Coming from the 18 year, the 23 is noticeably tougher. You can tell it's age. But I truly can't say I like it much. more than the 18. Each one has it's own quirks. Considering the price, I would probably rather buy the 18, but neither will disappoint.
Deep nose, good taste with hints of vanilla, salty butter, brown sugar with some spices.
Interesting choice if you want to go beyond the sweet rums but still want some sweetness in it.
It’s a good one!
On an cost per ounce basis, this is the best Agricole out there, and arguably the best aged rum at its price point. This has become my go-to when I want to introduce noobs to aged rum.
N: candied sugar, almost some bubblegum. Great nose. I like it. T/F: smooth, not much alcohol, sweet but not too much so. Solid, if a bit less going on than in other higher end rums.
