Le nez est rond avec des notes boisé mais aussi un côté beurré et caramélisé assez présent ce qui donne un ensemble assez doux. En revanche la bouche est très grillé, très animal et nous porte sur un registre beaucoup plus sombre avec ce chêne présent tout le long. La final confirme une nouvelle fois que le bois est bien présent avec des notes plutôt sèche. Ce rhum est globalement agréable à déguster mais il reste assez simple.

Dieser Rum ist sehr komplex und rund, von allen Agricole-Noten findet man etwas. Im Mund trocken und würzig mit Leder und Holz. Hier muss aber auch besonders das röstige Kaffeearoma und scharfer Tabak hervorgehoben werden. Deshalb insgesamt etwas besser als die anderen XOs.

Un jolie agricole bien boisé avec une jolie gourmandise surprenante.

Premier d'une série d'agricoles ce soir. Doux et agréable, vraiment sympa. Un peu mince en bouche, cela manque un peu de longueur.

We had a go at several HSE today and I'm a bit tipsy from it.

Le bois est bien présent, très rond. Le vieillissement transforme ce bois en notes animales et musquées.

Un bon agricole XO

Nez : cacao/banane mûre/compote de Mamy/café et tabac Bouche: sec sur des notes de café - tabac Finale : longue sur le boisé/toasté/cuir Perso je préfère la gourmandise du nez que le boisé/sec de la bouche sur ce standard des rhums agricoles. Un digne représentant des Rhums AOC de Martinique, une valeur sûre en soit ...
