„Good agricultural, but a little too woody for me.“

„Very balanced Agricole at the highest level. Cocoa, coffee, barrel notes and spices meet fruit notes and leather. Very complex without becoming unbalanced. Tastes quite close to the 98 BdF profile; the nose is even a tad ahead. The '99 comes off a bit heavier and suits my personal tastes best. All three bottlings are on the highest level and embody Agricole of the top class.“

„One of the best agricole i’ve ever tried. Lovely nose of various fruits, roasted, a bit of wood and hazelnuts. In mouth it continuos with the amazing mix of fruits, woods, nuts. The end is really smooth and medium long. The alcohol is integrated very well“

„Eine schöne, röstige Nase. Rote Früchte. Ein leichter animalischer Einfluss. Alkohol sehr gut integriert. Mit ein paar Tropfen Wasser nasses Geäst. Ohne Verdünnung viel zu stark. Komplexe Würze. Holzig - aber gerade nicht zu viel. Langer, schöner Abgang. Ein sehr guter, würziger Agricole.“

„This is one of my top 5 Bally releases. Well balanced and intense with fruit amd spices. I like the chocolate, coffee and licorice mix in there. The empty glass has wonderful flavours after an hour or so. Good enough for me to order a bottle 😊“

„Un rhum agricole de grande classe, avec un nez sombre, élégant et complexe. Le boisé est intense et noble, puis laisse les épices s’étirer (vanille, poivre, cannelle, réglisse). On discerne des traits de chocolat noir et de café allant jusqu’au cigare et au cuir. Les fruits, discrets de prime abord, se développent par la suite sur le raisin et l’abricot secs, puis les notes de fruits rouges (cerise). Les notes végétales et florales sont légères, permettant au rhum de s’exprimer sans être trop amer et agricole. L’attaque en bouche est particulièrement boisée mais très élégante. Les notes sombres sur le café, les épices (réglisse notamment) le chocolat noir, le tabac, les notes rôties et le cuir en font un rhum un peu amer mais profond et intense. Les fruits viennent apporter de l’équilibre avec des notes d’orange, de fruits rouges et de fruits secs (raisin et pruneau). Le côté floral et végétal de la canne à sucre est ici secondaire. L’alcool est très bien intégré. La finale, très longue, débute sur de belles notes fruitées (cerise, framboise, raisin sec, pruneau, zeste d’orange) puis poursuit la trame en bouche avec les notes sombres, épicées et amères en première ligne. Un rhum intense et élégant, bien structuré et qui mérite ses titres de noblesse.“

„Die zweite Verkostung bestätigt die Eindrücke aus der ersten. Aber ich bin mit Agricole Rum noch nicht so richtig warm geworden. Deshalb bleibt es bei der Bewertung. p.s. eine harzige Note und Bittermandeln habe ich noch an Gaumen und Abgang gefunden Die Nase zuerst verschlossen, dann sehr komplex. Im Vergleich zur 43% Version deutlich komplexer und noch würziger aber nicht so leicht zugänglich.“

„Nasses Holz, alter weinkeller. Erinnert mich an gute Armagnacs. Leicht rauchiger Abgang, typisch für Bally. Die 57% tun ihm gut, fand das bei den anderen Ballys immer fragwürdig, weil die so niedrig waren.“

„Nosing starts off with a robust and concentrated profile. Winecellar notes: dried fruits, must, wood and more than anything - it smells old. Leather jacket. Phenol. Earthy and lightly smoked. However there is a leafy, vibrant heart to this. Bark and licorice at the very end. After a good while, some lively fruits appear. Cherries, both ripe and unripe, orange peel, and red apple. In the mouth untamed, spicy and roasted. The wood continues and remains manageable. The spices, however, are cranked to a 100% here. Much more vanilla upfront, with a vegetal umami and peppery background. Dominant licorice and more leather jacket. The fruits turn much more concentrated to raisins and prunes. It’s tannic and wine-like. In the throat immediately musty and surprisingly herbal with notes such as basil and oregano. Finish is medium in length and holds an excellent balance between fruits, herbs, sugars and spices. Very well executed rum.“

„Der zweite Bally für heute, noch mal 4 Jahre älter und mit knapp 58% vermute ich von allem etwas mehr. Nase: oh ja, kräftig und intensiv, fruchtig-würzig-holzig aber auch leicht süßlich. Zunächst kommt mir duftendes Kirschbaumholz in die Nase, begleitet von Fruchtnoten in Richtung Kirsche, Pflaume und säuerlicher Cassis mit Orange und frischen Zitrusfrüchten. Etwas süße Lakritze und diese säuerliche Note erinnern mich auch an Melassesirup (obwohl das hier natürlich nichts damit zu tun hat). Die Würze ist eine Mischung aus Muskat, Nelke, Anis und Vanille. Alles sehr trocken, voluminös und rund. 88 Gaumen: wow, kräftig und intensiv, würzig-holzig. Duftendes Kirschbaumholz. Dunkle Schokolade und Kakaopulver mit einer leicht bitteren Holzsäure kommen mir zuerst in den Sinn. Gleich dahinter aber auch umgehend eine feine Orangen-Note mit Pflaume und Brombeere. Die Säure bekommt etwas minziges und geht sehr schön in die cremige Schokolade über und wandelt sich langsam zum grasigem Zuckerrohr mit weicher Lakritze, zum Ende wird alles nochmal mit Dörrpflaume bereichert. Gefällt mir richtig gut. 88 Starker und voluminöser Agricole, wunderbar intensiv und rund.“
