Not bad at all. The fruitiness dominates especially in nose and the medium long finish.

This is definitely not a mixer and I'd be sad to see people mixing with this very nice rum. A very delicious rum that's dry in the beginning but the explodes with a lot of flavours. A great Agricole that I think connoisseurs would love. Price to quality is very good.

A very mild and soft sipper, made professionally but also a bit boring. I am even missing the Cognac or Grappa impressions of other Agricoles.

Tolle fruchtig-vanillige Nase die nach etwas Zeit Ähnlichkeit zu einem Speyside Whisky hat. Auch im Mund eine Mischung aus Scotch und Agricole, daher für jemanden der aus dem Whisky kommt wahrscheinlich ganz gut, meins ist das Profil nicht ganz.

Kann auch gut pur getrunken werden. War mein erster Ti Punch mit einem braunen Rhum, geht gut aber für einen Ti Punch würde ich nicht weiter als VSOP gehen, da sonst das Holz zu dominant wird.

Nez très aguicheur, riche, fruité et pâtissier, vanille caramel Très doux et gras en bouche c'est un bon rhum pour débuter la soirée il passe très bien il est assez gourmand tout en gardant l'authenticité de l'agricole, il y a un goût de cigare et de miel en bouche qui le distingue vraiment des autres  Pas très boisé ni très long en bouche mais plutôt sur des arômes sucrés

Ein sehr fruchtiger Geruch, süß, etwas alkoholisch und scharf. Der Geschmack ist süßlich, leicht blumig, etwas alkoholisch, ganz angenehm. Der Nachklang ist mittellang.

Riecht sehr süß und schokoladig. Geschmacklich schlechter, scharf und schwierig einzuordnen.

honigsüser agricole. Nach dem süsslichen Geruch einer schöner milder agricole überraschend komplex lecker

Loin d être fan des vieux Damoiseau j ai trouvé ce VSOP surprenant une attaque franche et agréable une présence de boisé et de fruité très équilibré avec l alcool. Une longueur en bouche plus que convenable laissant apprécié à nouveau le boisé
