“Overall a great and well balanced Agricole. The Carrere distillery in Guadeloupe has started a release of a collection of Agricole’s that’s finished in different casks. Right now I have seen six different releases, but just two have reached Europe so far. This one is distilled in 2015, aged for almost 7 years before finished during 188 days in barrels from the Menhirs distillery previously contained Breton whiskey and thereafter bottled in just 2240 numbered bottles. I’m looking forward to taste the following releases in the La Rencontre series.”

“Wisky Live 2023, session dégustation rapide ! Belle découverte, je retiens le beurre et la fraise, profil très rond et très gourmand (presque un peu trop pour moi). Finalement le meilleur de cette série ? Je ne sais pas le dire je n’ai pas été ébahi non plus part Montebello qui reste en bas du tableau pour moi.”

“9:The nose is extremely candied and gourmand, like a cane juice delicacy encrusted with pear and baked apple. The woodiness is also very mellow, so behind a heavy veil of vanilla, we discover a soft bread dough exhaling cereal aromas and Aeration adds to the velvety, even syrupy aspect of this nose. Fruits such as mirabelle plum, pear and very ripe grapes melt into a honey-sprinkled sweet spice and carrot cake. After some time caramelized coffee notes. 9,2:On the palate, the mirabelle plum jam is set in a very buttery, very sweet caramel, a bit like the one that coats popcorns. As for the rhum agricole, it sends out a few bursts of lemony freshness, perfectly balancing the whole on the mid-palate. The cane then expresses itself with lovely patina notes, softly vegetal and peppery... at the end with creme brulee. 9:The finish is lightly woody, with a hint of cocoa, lemon peel, baked apple and a few wisps of toasted nuts. A superb agricole, heavenly good...”
