Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This quite young Agricole, which I bought when I drove down to Spain some days ago, is aged for three years in new oak barrels with a short finish in former bourbon barrels.
In nose the oakiness dominates.
In mouth, at palate and during the quite long finish I, besides the oak, also recognize fruits, smoke and hints of bourbon.
Overall it’s as all J.M’s in the standard line up a good buy and a good entrance to the world of Agricole’s.
Picture: My opened bottle and a poured glass down in Nerja, Spain.
Aangenaam verrast door deze jonge rhum. droog, lichtbruin, naast het typische "grassige" component, wat hout, kruidig, peper, gedroogd fruit, karamel. Gebotteld op 43%. Mooi flesje en label.
Prima agricole, aanrader.
Un peu trop tendre, on sent le potentiel mais ça sent encore un peu trop l'eau de Cologne et la chemise trop grande. Un ado qui sort pour la 1ère fois en boite.
Au premier nez la canne et le boisé montent immédiatement.
Au second nez l alcool apparait bien intégré.
En bouche le bouche le boisé est de nouveau très présent, l alcool se ressent bien mais est effectivement bien intégré, rhum très équilibré.
La finale est assez longue je trouve qu à ce moment il tire légèrement sur les fruits confits.
I was excited to try this based on the scent. Initial taste was nice but then it kind of fell flat. Aftertaste lingers and is somewhat intense. Perhaps I’m not an Agricole person, seems to be true to that pallet though.
Ok sipper with very good Agricole flavor and characteristics. Not overly complex. Finish is short. Tastes a little young but pretty good.
Drinking rum all my life spending time in French, British, and American islands, central and South America I have somehow past up on JM. I was finally offered a sample last night and found VO to be very smooth for such a young rum. Classic agricole flavours but not hard to drink like Clement’s. I look forward to trying their XO.
The first nosing reveals vegetable notes that meet cognac sweetness, liquorice black jack ..
Cognac and port meet the pallete first followed by the vegatation notes of agricole rum ...
Fruity rum with medium strong alcohol, low sugar with long and interesting long aftertaste (herbs, nuts).
