Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
As usual with me, a story always comes with each new review. In this case, it was a 100 mile clockwise loop around The Big Pond on the north side of New Orleans. My purpose was to finally get my hands on a bottle or two of The Scarlet Ibis from Trinidad, aka the poor man's Caroni. Well, two of their stores that claimed to have it told me that it was never in their inventory. Despite being very disappointed, this rhum agricole was available, along with three more bottles of Clement Homere. So, this rum running trip was by no means a total loss.
My purpose for wanting this rhum was my memory of Depaz Canne Bleue that was slightly aged. This one is not aged at all. No contest when compared to that bottle of Depaz. These two rums could not be more opposite despite both coming from the rare blue cane sugar that supposedly only grows on the volcanic slopes of Martinique. No matter what the initial source for rhums are, it is all about the fermentation, distillation, and aging that follows after the source. As for aroma and taste on this one, my title says it all. Gosh, I really miss that bottle of Depaz Canne Bleue!
More whiskey like than molasses based rums. Adds a punch of flavour to white rum based cocktails. Great as part of a Mai tai.
Funky, fruity, and sweet. The agricole funk is gamey and somewhat tequila-like to me. At 100 proof, its flavor really comes through strong in drinks
I did not have much experience with Agricole rums, but it was a big disappointment. This is just not for me.
It's a very good White Agricole. It's definitively richer and more intense than the standard clement. It has a nice smell of tropical fruits, a fresh taste. It's good also neat, it's not very aggressive considering it's an agricole with , but I prefer it on a ti punch.
In any case I think it's a step below other premium white agricole rhums (i.e. Trois Rivieres Cuvee de l'Oceane), 6/10 it's not honestly fair but in my opinion it's not a full 7/10.
Omnipräsente, frische Aromen nach Kräutern, Gewürzen und (überreifem) Obst. Alkoholisch und metallisch-salzig in der Nase.
Trocken. Guter Körper. Alkohol gut eingebettet.
Gewöhnungsbedürftiger Rumstil, nicht für jedermann, den dieser interessante Rum recht schmackhaft macht.
good mixer, really strong, impossible for me to drink it like this, but if you add lime and sugar canne you feel in martinique
Great in a Ti punch, impressions are clean grassy and citrusy on the palate. A similar aroma and flavor to a good quality white or reposado tequila, bien my palate and experience with Tequila... thoroughly enjoyed it as my entry level white Agricole.
This is a phenomenal cocktail agricole that packs a punch ... On its own has notes of charcoal and fresh sugar cane
