“Canne rouge & Canne Jaune mixed and 18 months in ex Bourbon & ex rye whisky casks... Nice! Incredibly beautiful nose of red Williams pear, baked apple, honey and bourbon. On the palate, you realize that the bourbon & rye whiskey casks used here are quite blatant, bringing a great spiciness to the rhum and underlining the red and yellow fruits of the 2 sugar cane varieties, but also almost dominating them. The finish is almost reminiscent of baked apple 😀 It won't be easy to come up with an agricole here in a blind tasting... But the fact that it's so smooth at 60% after only 18 months is remarkable. For me, it's definitely one of the best very young agricole rhums I've drunk to date and an exceptional blend of 2 rarer sugar cane varieties. I find it very successful and even better than its predecessor, zenga vieux. The price is of course a different matter and a little expensive for such a young rhum... Nevertheless, a great bottling!”
