Grenzwertig holzig, aber tolle Komplexität!

Richtig schwerer und holziger Agricole. Eine Nase zum Verlieben.

Sehr konzentriert und intensiv nach Mokka, Vanille, Leder, Tabak und grasigem Zuckerrohr, sehr bitter, tanninbetont und sehr holzig, dennoch noch mit einer leichten Fruchtigkeit nach Rosine und Banane. Alkohol könnte etwas besser integriert sein und er ist mir insgesamt zu Holzig und bitter, dafür ist er schön komplex und intensiv!

This is probably the best St. James in my mind and I do have a backup bottle on the shelf. The nose is very well balanced with spices, fruit and tobacco. In the back i can find oak and a bit of leather. The palate is complex and really intense. Dried fruit and lots of spices with roasted coffee and a hint of leather. There is a slight but good bitterness. The finish is extremely long, slightly bitter and pepper spicy with some raisins.

schöner, runder St. James, an der Nase viele würzige Noten Richtung Gewürznelke und Piment, im Hintergrund eine gewisse (grüne) Frische.

Ein Traum die Nase! Tropische Früchte, dunkel, Tabak, Gewürze, Kaffee, Schokolade. Viel Holz, perfekt and der Oberkante balancierend. 😁 Empyreumatisch würden die Franzosen sagen. Kräftig und ausgewogen im Mund. Kaffee und getrocknete Banane im Abgang. Toller Agricole. Perfektes Spiel mit der Fasslagerung. Schön, dass wir nun wirklich eine breite Auswahl an Agricoles haben.

Interesting expression from Saint James.. lots of spices (vanilla, pepper, cardamom), with a nice balance of fruit (grapes, red fruits and dried figs) and wood from the barrel. Given the above, I find this rum a little bit to “muted” for my taste

Der Alkohol kommt meiner Meinung nach im Gaumen etwas stark, ansonsten sehr lecker, würzig und komplex. Auch wenn ich bisher noch kein großer Fan von Agricole bin, so schmeckt mir dieser Rum sehr gut, v.a. da die grasigen Noten nicht zu stark dominieren.

An der Nase: Gras, Pflanze, Gewürze Am Gaumen: Bitternoten, Holz, Erde, Pfeffer Hat einen ausgeprägten Charakter, leider nicht ganz mein Fall.

Ein Agricole , der noch Ecken und Kanten hat. Dabei ist er sehr intensiv und komplex und es gibt sehr viel zu entdecken! Sehr spannend und lecker! Top!

In der Nase holzig, Alter Tabak, getrocknete Früchte Am Gaumen wieder holzig gemischt mit der Fruchtugkeit getrockneter Früchte, vielleicht Dattel. Im Abgang erdig, etwas modriges Holz Interessanter älterer Agricole
