Nez très gourmand, sur la vanille, la canne, le bois notamment. C'est doux et engageant. A la première bouche, on reste sur les promesses du nez, avec quelques fruits secs. Puis une amertume discrète s'immisce en fin de bouche. Sensation balancée par un côté vif et piquant. Après aération, c'est cette note amère qui domine. Une sensation d'agrumes voire de zeste et l'amertume qui reste. Ce n'est pas le meilleur rhum que j'ai goûté mais cette amertume assez spéciale peut finalement s'avérer appréciable de temps à autres.

First Chamarel, and I am surprised by the Influence of the wood, which is quite obvious. I am. Missing other typical Agricole notes, but assume the have mellowed during the aging process. It is OK, but will not become a favorite, one must be in the right mood for it. Also, the Alcohol tastes quite strong, especially in the aftertaste, for a 40% spirit, compared to others in cask strength I have experienced.
