Une très belle surprise, un rhum avec de la profondeur, de l’équilibre et du punch malgré son faible ABV. Un très bon rapport qualité-prix. Certes ce n’est pas un tout grand rhum, mais il s’en rapproche. Super agréable !

The taste is less aggressive than other Agricole’s and therefore it’s a perfect entrance to the Agricole world.

Une belle référence pour les rhums agricoles. Plus complexe et plus rond que le VSOP, ses arômes tirent sur les épices, le bois et le tabac, mélangés à des notes fruitées. Sec mais rond en bouche, la finale est chaude et très agréable. Une franche réussite.

Une révérence de l agricole martiniquais pour les non experts ! On y retourne le fut de chêne, les épices typiques au nez, en bouche…. Bref j aime beaucoup ! Même si j ai pu goûter bien mieux, pour un XO trouvable partout ! C est quand même très bon !

Runder Agricole. Super Verfügbarkeit. Daher gut als Einstieg in die Agricole-Welt geeignet.

Average rum nose. Rather woody would be my only real note. The palate is a little like whiskey, lots of wood and a little spice, but, not so much that it's off putting for me. A touch of cocoa and cherry keeps things nice. It has a long finish that plays with being similar to a whiskey again. With lots of peppery and leather notes. Not a bad rum at all. For me, at that price. I think I'd prefer something else. Something more fruit forward.

I reviewed this after quite some time, and the Rum had ample time to breathe (as the bottle was half empty for the year), and was quite astonished: either the rum changed (for the better), or my taste improved. I guess it is both. This time I got much more the vegetal notes attributed to Agricoles, which compliments the overall experience very well.

Un rhum Agricole très équilibré, on en boirait des litres. Ça manque de caractère et de longueur mais le profil est super agréable.

Der Benchmark für Agricole. Da muss man mal vorbeikommen. Super PLV.

Wie ein perfekt gereifter Pinot Noir. Weiche Kirsche, komplex, kräftige Holztöne, Koriander, Zimt und Tabak schimmern immer wieder durch. Im Mund überraschend kräftig nach der weichen Nase. Neben den vorher bekannten Aromen kommt jetzt eine ungewöhnliche Fülle an Gewürzen hinzu - Fenchel, Kreuzkümmel. Bitterkeit. Abgang trockenes Gras und Holz . Sehr trocken, aber auch sehr ausgewogen.

Dieser XO unterscheidet sich von anderen Martinique XO durch stärkere Zuckerrohr/Karamellnoten im Geruch. Der Fruchtanteil an der Nase ist komplex. Im Mund ist er wirklich sehr trocken und würzig, was kein besonders angenehmes Erlebnis für mich ist. Immerhin gibt süßes Zuckerrohr dazu, sowie weitere angenehmen Noten wie Kaffee, Vanille und Frucht.

It is not a typical Rhum Agricole but picks up some of the expected notes. The nose is sweet and inviting, deep orange peel and tangerine with grass and elderflower. The mouth is pleasant if not unassuming, green pepper and hay combined with some pear and fruits. Finish is short, dry with notes of leather. I thought I would like it more than I did - a solid middle of the road Rhum Agricole that doesn’t try to do too much.
