“Un nez robuste et boisé, assez typique mais dans le même temps, plutôt élégant. Le praliné aux épices mélangé avec un fût de chêne. Derrière tout cela, un petit coté fruité discret. L'acool est vraiment très bien intégré au nez, on se croirait un peu sous les 50%. En bouche c'est bien épicé et boisé, on est vraiment sur les marqueurs st James. Mais vraiment si on aime ce profil, c'est un super rhum à un prix sympa. Je ne lui mets pas 90+ parce que c'est encore un peu trop sur le bois pour les goûts personnels mais c'est vraiment très bien!”

“This is a very balanced Agricole from SJ... the balance of wood, spice and vegetal flavors is very well done. Minimal fruit also appears! I find it very successful and harmonious”

“Surprisingly much wood. I think it lacks some fruitiness for balance.”
