Ce rhum est un rhum édulcoré sans réelle surprise. C'est bon, sucré quasi sirupeux mais ça manque de caractère et de complexité pour en faire un rhum de premier choix. On pourrait dire que c'est un rhum consensuel pour "débutant"
Ce rhum est une pure merveille. Un nez épicé et complexe, une longueur en bouche impressionnante avec des épices, des fruits confits. Une superbe réussite
On paper, this rum is very interessting. It’s a trinidad mix from angostura and the now legendary and unfortunately closed caroni destillery. The ratio is unknown but my geuss is that there’s very little caroni in there as neither the price or taste suggest a whole lot of caroni. Aside from bourbon ageing, it’s also finished in french sauternes casks (sweet wine). The age itself is not available.
The nose is sweet and fruity with apricot, peach, orange, vanilla and honney. Perhaps a bit of lavender as well. The sauternes finish is very apparent. The taste is sweet as well, again with the fruity notes alongside canesugar, banana and vanilla. There’s perhaps a hint of some deeper character imparted by the caroni, kinda like a subtle shade of tar, but it’s very underplayed.
This rum is on to something but it’s no where near it’s full potential. I know that at this pricepoint, there’s limit’s, but a smidge more caroni and less added sugar could perhaps have made this rum exceptional.
Just back from this years rumcruise at the Baltic Sea with Birka cruises. It’s a fantastic opportunity to taste new rum, rarities and old favourites. I attended at two Master classes. This Rhum represented a mid aged Agricole at a class with the theme diversity of rum.
The included distillate in this Neisson is between 3 and 9 years old. It’s quite smooth, dry and complex. You can recognise wood, fruits, vanilla and grass.
Didn’t buy me a bottle, cause I have decided to buy me a more aged Neisson when I find the one I want, but I can really recommend it,
Nice presentation bottle with a decent cork.. Dark amber in colour and when poured doesn't give off much in alcohol fumes. As mentioned , you dont need a leave in the glass for long. Warm and spicey in the mouth with a lovely fruity taste , probably the sherry influences.
No burn on exit.. I would guess not much if any sugar added ?
Nice sipper but weak as a mixer.. if you mix I would suggest 1 /1 ratio.. I imagine this would make a good cocktail. Definitely a re buy in my books !
Considerably drier than I was expecting but extremely drinkable. While perhaps still partial to the 15-year, this presents a nice, complex flavor with an added woody note that is largely absent in the 12 or 15 year bottles. Overall, very happy to have it in my bar but also not sure I’d buy another with some of the other great options out there for similar/less money.
I love spiced rums neat and picked this up by mistake. I needed to put the first shot down the sink because I could not find enjoyment in it, and short while later after a shot of truly nice spiced rum, tried this again but immediately sent the second down the sink. Tastes like something filtered through a sock.
Un rhum que je trouve bon, agréable et facile à boire surtout en fin de repas. Les arômes de vanille et de banane très marqués, sans grande subtilité ni trop de longueur en bouche, mais agréable en dessert, et très fluide. Je le rapprocherais assez d'un Don Papa pour le goût, et d'un rhum bas de gamme pour la texture.
Verkostung im Rum-Museum Saga du Rhum.
Schönes sattes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase frisch und reif zugleich, kandierte Früchte mit Zitronenzeste, Karamell mit Holznuancen und ein Blumenstrauss mit Vanillesauce.
Im Gaumen schön ausgewogen, tropische Früchte gehen elegant Hand in Hand mit Karamell und Vanille. Sanfte Holztöne erklingen im Hintergrund.
Im Abgang klingen Holz, Karamell und Vanille lange nach.
Ein interessanter Rhum für Freunde von Agricole Rhum. Nichts für "Sweetis".
Tasting at the Rum Museum Saga du Rhum.
Beautiful rich amber in a glass.
In the nose fresh and ripe at the same time, candied fruits with lemon zest, caramel with wood nuances and a bouquet of flowers with vanilla sauce.
The palate is well balanced, tropical fruits go elegantly hand in hand with caramel and vanilla. Gentle wood tones are heard in the background.
In the finish, wood, caramel and vanilla are long lasting.
An interesting Rhum for friends of Agricole Rhum. Nothing for "Sweetis".
My palate may possibly suck, but I didn’t notice enough of a difference between this and their non-barrel aged version. Not to say this isn’t tasty because it is, but I was just hoping for more barrel flavor.
It comes from the Caribbean and definitely reminds me of some of the ones I had down there (at least in PR). Sweet, but not sickeningly so, and enough interest on the palate, but not overly complex per se. Could be a decent sipper or a really good mixer.

Sattes Strohgelb im Glas.
In der Nase Vanille, Karamell, kandierte Früchte und leichte Holznoten.
Im Gaumen etwas sperrig und unreif, Früchte, Karamell, Holz.
Im Abgang etwas kurz und scharf, das Karamell bleibt etwas länger.
Ein Rhum der in Reunion hauptsächlich in der Küche gebraucht wird.
Tasting in the Saga du Rhum.
Rich straw yellow in the glass.
In the nose vanilla, caramel, candied fruit and light notes of wood.
On the palate somewhat bulky and unripe, fruits, caramel, wood.
In the finish somewhat short and sharp, the caramel remains somewhat longer.
A rhum that is mainly used in the kitchen in Reunion.
I far prefer rum from molasses, but am buying more and more Agricoles as there is something about them that I do enjoy and feel sure that if I have enough of them, that they will grow on me.
This Agricole, bought for €24 in a French supermarket, has all the typicality that you would expect of an Agricole although I find it slightly sweeter than many others - or rather that should be, less dry. The nose has a hint of peppery spiciness, almost akin to pencil shavings.There is a complexity on the pallet married to a smoothness and roundness. The oaky finish provides for a good length.
For €24 I have to consider this to be good value for money.
