„A rum balanced in aromas, for my taste far too much. A fine rum, but the column distillation limits its potential. The nose reveals a light roastiness accompanied by dark chocolate, wood and spice. On the palate there is wood, spice, faint roasting/roasting and balsamic notes with a not too long lychee/grape finish. One senses the use of ex-cognac barrels that give it a refined profile close to agricole. A rum that needs attention, but personally not my style.“

„Banana, lots of banana. Then very spicy and a prime example of tropical wood maturity, the oak is perfectly integrated. Great solvent. In the mouth then full-bodied and warm. Perfect alcohol. Horny plastic nodes in the finish. The little brother of the Traditionnel 2005 and equally good.“

„First Isautier and at the same time first Agricole from Reunion for me. Wow. Horny stuff. Already in the nose incredibly complex, peach and tropical wood, maybe some pepper.In the taste then full mouthfeel and incredibly well integrated alcohol. Really Agricole Feeling as with Martiniques does not come up, for this the rum is too mature. Rather long and good oak barrel aging. Finish is then nice and long, also here at no time alcoholic sharpness, rather sweetness and desire for more.“

„Wow! I would not have expected this. Extremely harmonious, quaffable, mild and complex. Intense mango, papaya and peach notes are complemented by milk chocolate and mint, as well as rose petals and eucalyptus tea. Very creamy mouthfeel, the alcohol is perfectly integrated. Then in the finish the wood makes itself discreetly felt, as well as a slight saltiness and bitterness but then mint and mango come back. Very cool. It must be just actually but not always savanna. Very harmonious!“

„now finally times the brother of the 16er in the glass, but based on molasses. The notes on the nose I like really well, allspice, milk chocolate, caramel, fruity jam, barrel. On the palate roasty-spicy over to slightly salty, then in the finish rather woody and with a slight bitterness.“

„I was looking forward to this one. First Isautier for me. Beautifully intense, powerful and good on the nose. Spicy fruity and creamy sweet. Pleasant creaminess with vanilla meets apricot and papaya. Also has something of fruit bread. In addition, slightly woody and the scent of dried tobacco leaves. I really like what I smell there. Also full-bodied and intense on the palate. Again spicy-fruity-woody, with a pleasant acidity of blackcurrant and lemon zest. A bit bitter, then salty, then fruity sour sweet. Mint comes through and the wood, perhaps with some more hazelnut and chocolate toffee. Still bitter on the finish and increasingly green. I like it decidedly well.“

„Always nice to taste some samples on vacation. Girlfriend prefers yesterday’s Rasta Morris Bielle. I agree that it’s more elegant, but for me two different drinks. This is, in my Tagesform, an easy sipper with some nice bourbon and wood influences and not overly complex. Solid 8.2.“

„Richtig guter STOFF 🤩🤩 ...“

„In my view, clearly behind the 2005 bottlings, mainly due to a too dominant apricot / plum note, which I do not like so much. Edit: After further tastings again clearly graded, because I dislike the profile increasingly.“

„VORSICHT, Flasche sollte vor Gebrauch gut geschwenkt werden. Der Rum enthält enorm viele Fasspartikel, welche Geruch und Geschmack deutlich verändern! In der Nase macht der Rum einen recht schweren, fruchtigen aber vor allem würzigen Eindruck. Dominant vorangetrieben wird das Aroma von intensiven Orangenschalen, Cocos, Mango und Maracuja...ggf auch u.a vom Cognac Fass? Der Rum ist allerdings darüber hinaus eine brachiale Gewürzbombe in Form von intensiven Weihnachtsgewürzen, Spekulatiusteig, Bratäpfel, Zimt. Eine angenehme Karamellsüße und Florale Noten Runden das ganze sehr schön ab. Im Mund nur dezent süß, eher trocken. Hier dominieren dann sehr deutlich Kräuter und Weihnachtsgewürze, viel Platz für anderes lässt der Rum kaum noch. Ein sehr schöner Rum, der im Mund leider etwas lachlässt“

„La Réunion isn’t really my usual rum hunting territory as I’m not the biggest fan of their rhum. This one took me by surprise as it has an excellent nose and taste with a perfectly integrated ABV. Great stuff 👌🏻“

„#4011 This one was very disappointing compared to the other two. Everything is off and not really balanced. maybe it's the triple cask maturation that went wrong? The price tag on this one is also half of the other two, but I wouldn't buy this one to be honest. Tomorrow I'll finish up the last 3 I have if the 15 year old (September 06 - December 21) has been added to the database.“
