„Already on the nose with the aroma of polished oak, vanilla and caramel so often found in tropically aged Demerara rums - and the promise is maintained on the palate. The aforementioned notes are joined by pepper, chocolate, leather and subtle licorice. All in all, I only miss a bit of freshness to get the rating even higher. The quality, however, remains exceptional, very nice bottling.“

„I love the tropical maturation! With this rum you can taste the maturation, it goes in the direction of Velier Demerara. The only drawback - it lacks perhaps a little complexity.“

„A nice discovery at Isautier. A well-balanced rum, with very spicy, woody notes. The ripe tropical fruits and the pastry side. Both complex and delicious. A very long finish.“

„#4009 This is a very nice Agricole release that Velier has gotten their hands on, wow. The price tag is pretty steep on this bottle and maybe its overpriced but it's stille a great rum. Fruity profile with nicely integrated wood and some roasted notes. The ABV is perfectly integrated. Needs to rest to release all of its goodness. In the empty glass I can pick up some nougat and chocolate.“

„Gigantic. Had I blindly rather typed on a beautiful barrel-strong Appleton. Incredibly awesome notes of flambéed banana, honey, caramelized nuts, dark chocolate with sea salt and dried apricots, then in the finish a lot of barrel and a lot of tannins and very astringent. Alcohol could also be a little better integrated here, but all in all still really cool stuff!“

„A wonderful deep, copper color.On the nose banana bread, fresh from the oven baked by my wife. Followed by polish. Warm, full, perfectly balanced, alcohol perfectly integrated, not very complex.In the mouth warm and dry.Long full finish with an artificial note.A very good rum to my taste.“

„Both 16yo Isautier compared, molasses and Agricole. Both are super...Nose: intense and powerful, very spicy and fruity. A mix of blackcurrant and gooseberry along with orange and lime. In addition, fine vanilla, leather and tobacco. A hint of mint or menthol is in the background. Oh, and sick still a slightly sour vinegar note. This goes well with the impression of tart-sweet-sour molasses and maple syrup. Increased flavors of bourbon come at the end.Palate: 8.8Wow, totally intense, complex, powerful and really tasty. Very pleasantly spicy with nutmeg and licorice, but more so aromatic cedar. Very malty with yeast and nicely nutty with hazelnut. But toasted and creamy-fat to go with it. Again strong-sweet-sour molasses with caramel. Dried fruit, like apricot and plum with dark blackberry. Quite bacony on the finish. Brilliant. 9.0“

„Tasted for the first time in March this year, until then completely under the radar. The nose surprises and convinces, clear difference compared to the 15 year old.It dominates in comparison dark fruits, dried plum, raisins and dates, followed by coconut oil. No less dominant are solvents, furniture polish and a warm woodiness, which completely picks me up, as not too dominant. The Christmas spices are also there in this case by comparison, but are not as present and much more pleasantly integrated. Sweet notes like molasses, butterscotch and toffee are more dominant here. In the mouth it is unfortunately a bit too stormy, because alcohol is not ideally integrated.I find it outstanding and can only recommend it to every lover of tropically matured Demeraras.“

„The third in the bunch!My favorite ... he has that certain something that appeals to me! This heavy sweetness in conjunction with the spices and fruit! That just fits...very tasty“

„Surprisingly sippable despite the strength. Alcohol is very well integrated and feels like an old Demerara. Tropical aging leaves this with heavy oak and tannins, feels very leathery, in addition baking spices and some fruit.“

„Great rum, but without the last quite certain something. In blind tasting impossible to identify. For me, therefore, somewhat behind the Agricole sister bottling.“

„Very good! Round and sweeter than the Agricole, but less wine barrel than the Rhum Rhum Integration, and out the back very dry! I like him very very much! Top!“

„Pleases me better in direct comparison with the Isautier 16yr Agricole (Rx10631) both on the palate and nose. Very well integrated ABV and long finish. A delicious rum.“
