“Un rhum de Guadeloupe de haut niveau, qui débute avec superbe bouquet de fruits tropicaux et d’agrumes au nez, suivi de notes plus végétales, épicées et terreuses qui offrent un profil olfactif complet, harmonieux et très agréable. L’attaque en bouche est intense, avec des notes végétales et épicées marquées, mais les arômes de fruits tropicaux et d’agrumes viennent se glisser sur le palais pour adoucir et donner de la profondeur à ce produit, auquel s’ajoutent le cacao, les amandes grillées et la cannelle. L’alcool est très bien intégré. La finale est longue, tantôt terreuse et végétale, tantôt épicée, tantôt fruitée, rappelant fidèlement le profil au nez et en bouche. Un très bon rhum, certes honéreux mais qui se veut aromatique, complexe et intense comme un bon rhum agricole.”

“I like it very much! A fresh fruity nose with light sugar cane!On the palate initially a heavy sugar cane sweetness before it spreads creamy in the mouth! Now the spicy parts come through! The longer it lingers in the mouth the stronger flavors come through paired with some tangerine zest! Very tasty!The finish is medium long with the typical grassy notes!A good to drink Agricole”
