RumX-Adventskalender, 13.12.2021, blind. Erster Eindruck in der Nase sagt mir Irgendwas mit Rotwein, eventuell ein Finish? Ansonsten u.a. Heu, Orangeat und Früchtebrot. Riecht recht süß. Auch am Gaumen zuerst süß, dann jedoch plötzlich ins Trockene umschlagend. Leider etwas dünn. Ich würde hier auf einen Rum aus Zuckerrohrsaft tippen, circa. 45%. Überraschend der späte Gaumen und Abgang, der sich floral mit Noten von Veilchen zeigt. Gut, aber leider zu dünn, sonst durchaus noch spannender.

Ein Agricole der sanfteren Art! Mir etwas zu zu verdünnt und dadurch nicht ganz so aussagestark. Aber durchaus fein und elegant

13. Sample aus dem RX-Kalender. Dominante Noten von Gras, Jungem Holz, Leder, Pflanzen, Erde und Gewürzen. Sehr trocken am Gaumen. Bitternoten im Abgang.

RumX-Adventskalender, 13.12., blind. Erster Eindruck: ganz klar Agricole, leider etwas dünn, unter 46%. Nase: leicht fruchtig mit einer Rotwein-Note. Erinnert an eine Wildkräuterwiese, frisch und doch etwas muffig. Ich finde Orangeat und Früchtebrot und eine leichte Sirup-Süße. Da ist noch Würze, wie Backgewürz. Hinten etwas vinegar und seifig. Gaumen: deutlich verdünnt, was sehr schade ist. Wirkt zunächst lieblich, mit Orangeat. Dann kommt junges Holz bzw. Holzsaft von Frisch geschnittenem Geäst. Hinten blumig und leicht parfümiert. Deutlich Veilchen, Gras und Heu. Im Abgang seifig, Veilchenpastillen und Gras. Mit höherem ABV wäre er sicherlich interessanter, hat der Rum doch schon Körper. Wie so oft gefällt mir die Verdünnung bei Agrocols gar nicht! Guadeloupe kann so viel mehr!!!!

Tag 13 RumX Adventskalender: grasig, süßlich, leicht fruchtig und weich. Mein Tipp war Agricole unter 50 %. Mal richtig gelegen.

RumXmas #13, blind: Warm honey like sweetness, sugar cane and wood in the nose, grassy notes and dry (grappa) agricole in the mouth with a little bit of heath. The alcohol is integrated very well and a bitter finish. Going with agricole, maybe Saint James 🤷‍♂️ Pretty satisfied with my guess 🥳

Nose: grassy yet sweet on the nose (I get light vanilla and just a touch of caramel/burnt sugar). I also nose a light fruit note (might be peaches?), balanced out by some wood that give an extra pungency to the rum. Palate: on the first sip, I feel the herbal/ sugarcane notes better, with the sweet sensation more like honey that caramel. There might be also some spices in the mix. Finish: that honey/wood combination is the main leftover, but I agree that there’s a slightly bitter note in the end.

I‘m getting intense cherry notes with this one. A little low on ABV, doesn’t feel too much watered down however. Quite nice.

An sich OK, riecht und schmeckt aber irgendwie leicht verdünnt.

It’s a nice, smooth, subtle and complex Agricole from nose via palate to the medium long finish.
