Exquisit, gelbe Früchte treffen auf edle Gewürznoten und Honigsüsse. Das Holz ist trotz des hohen Alters in keiner Form unangenehme wahrnehmbar, imGegenteil - die Balance ist nahezu perfekt. Tolle Abfüllung.

#17th dec RumXCalendar Blind tasting: Nose: cherry, mirabelle plum, red fruits, mango, woody, spicy Mouth: cherry, caramelized, honey, roasted, woody Finish: long, oak, woody, delicious, cherry, mirabelle plum, creamy, bitter, smoky, salty It’s a really nice agricole with a lovely fruity hint of cherries and mirabelle plum, which rest for a long time in mouth and the empty glass too. The alcohol is integrated very well My prediction: I’ll go again with Martinique ca. 50% approx. 20 Years

RumX-Kalender 17: WOW: was für ein klasse Rum… eine ungewöhnliche zarte florale-fruchtige Nase, der Gaumen ist komplex, fruchtig, mit Vanille , röstig, karamellisiert und Kaffee! Der Abgang ist mittellang und cremig… Absolut Top

Intensiv, perfekte Balance, vielschichtig, lang anhaltender Abgang. Was ganz geiles! Edit Rum X Advent 17.12.22. Exquisite! Französische Rums haben teilweise eine Eleganz, die seinesgleichen sucht.

Hammer, der Rum! An der Nase kommt ganz viel auf einmal, es ändert sich auch, je länger der Rum im Glas ist. Kann man Stunden dran riechen! Echt schwierig alles zu erfassen: Vanille, Marille, Backgewürz, Mango, Piment, blumig, Honig. Er erinnert mich auch an Rockleys, insb. den Plantation Extreme 1986. Am Gaumen röstig, Vanille, dunkle Schokolade, Fass. Eine echte Perle!

I have the 47 year old Courcelles and this one is pretty close to it. Very fruity with a hint of barrel and vanilla. There is a touch of smoke from the roasting and the day after the nose is very nice and chocolaty :-)

Un vieux rhum à l’ancienne qui a gardé beaucoup de saveurs et de peps pour son âge. Le nez est très fruité, avec de jolies épices, des notes de tabac, de bois, un léger voile rôti et des saveurs de crème brûlée très agréables. En bouche, l’attaque est sèche mais délicieuse, embaumée d’épices, de moka, de chocolat, de tabac, de notes rôties, des fruits secs et de banane. L’alcool est très bien intégré, même si une petite pointe alcoolique subsiste dans l’arrière-bouche. La finale est plus terne et moins marquée, mais toujours influencée par les épices, le tabac et quelques notes d’herbes, de fumée, de bois et de fruits secs. Un très beau rhum qui fait honneur à son terroir disparu.

RumX Adventskalender 17.12.: Sehr spannende Nase, süß-würzig, etwas Trockenfrucht und Nougat. Hat was von nem Spiced Rum in geil. Auch im Mund ein tolles Aromenspiel in dem das würzige etwas stärker hervorsticht, das Holz trotz des hohen Alters aber angenehm zurückhaltend ist.

Verkostet im RumX Kalender: Ich konnte mit dem Agricole leider nicht so richtig etwas anfangen. War mir zu parfümiert und dadurch schwierig zu genießen. So verschieden können Geschmäcker sein.

sehr besonderer & leckerer Ausnahme Agricole. Extrem harmonisch und ausbalanciert. Super cremiges Mundgefühl, intensiv nach Mirabelle, Honig, rauchige Mandeln, etwas Salz, Sandelholz, Bananen, keksen und Vanille. Sehr lecker! Nur der Abgang könnte etwas länger sein...

Verkostet im RumX Adventskalender. Mich hatte das Sample nicht ganz so beeindruckt … habe es leider vor Bekanntgabe des Rums ausgetrunken und konnte dann nicht nochmal verkosten aber der Rum war für mich nicht ein herausragender im Kalender. So ehrfürchtig man ob des Namens wird – man muss da ehrlich bleiben 😂
