“Great Rum, well balanced, complex, great integration of the barrel and ABV. It has the classic St. James profile with all the beloved notes and tastes. I love the fresh, minty, chamomile notes at the very end of the finish. Conclusion of my tasting: 2006<<<2005<2001 (Roberto style 😜🙋🏼‍♂️)”

“After tasting this rhum for the first time on February 6, 2024 at Lot-NAS (in parallel with RX17197), I let it compete again today, this time against RX10626. And I can make it short: The cask for RX18129 was excellently selected, a beautifully woody-spicy, powerful agricole with depth, a really worthy birthday present for Excellence Rhum's 10th birthday, playing a league higher than RX10626 and RX17197. Congratulations! I will taste this rhum again in parallel with Les Ephemeres No. 6 (RX15601) from the same distillation year - if I can find the sample of No. 6 ... 🤭 Update 2024-02-11: Found sample of RX15601 and immediately tasted it again in parallel with the above rhum. Result as expected: Les Ephemeres No. 6 is in no way a match for the rhum from Excellence Rhum. Strangely enough, it has an unpleasant smell of inferior glue on the nose, at least at the beginning, and an inappropriate sharpness on the palate; the Agricole seems unround overall - all in direct comparison to RX18129, mind you. Tasted individually, it would certainly score better.”

“Tasted this great, elegant and complex Agricole at a masterclass held by Excellence Rhum during Sweden (Stockholm) Rumfest 2024. It’s a Brut de fût distilled in 2006 whereafter it’s aged for 15 years in 190 L American oak barrels before bottled at 53,1% in just 1260 bottles exclusively for Excellence Rhum’s 10 year celebration. On the nose it’s complex, fresh, fruity and woody with aromas of orange, vanilla and chocolate. On the palate it’s woody, fruity, spicy, nutty, dry and a little bitter with flavors of orange, plums, citrus and vanilla. The long finish is elegant and warm with flavors of plums and dried fruits.”
