HSE in Bestform. Alkohol perfekt integriert, vollmundig, schöner Holzeinfluss. Ein ausgezeichneter Agricole!

Die Nase dieses Rums ist der Wahnsinn: es fängt an mit geröstetem Kakao, Kaffee, viel Holz, stets mit der vollen Ladung Vanille und endet in getrockneten Früchten wie Zitrus und Pflaume. Absolut rund! Im Mund überraschend mild mit schöner Trinkstärke, viel herbe Noten und säuerliche Früchte. Im Abgang bleibt wieder sehr viel röstiges übrig mit (scharfen) Gewürzen und süßer Birne. Der HSE XO hat ja schon diese verrückte Kaffeenote gehabt, aber dieser Rum ist nochmal auf einem anderen Level!

Sehr warmer, voller Agricole mit viel Mandel. Sehr komplex, Alkohol super integriert. Im Mund und Abgang prickelt es ordentlich. Super Agricole!

Un superbe agricole très gourmand et équilibré. La bouche est un peu sèche et verte mais c'est bien contrebalancé par des notes gourmandes.

Embouteillage intéressant mais moins marquant que d'autres versions

Schön runder und vollmundiger Agricole.

Nicely round and light. On the nose plums, ripe banana and vanilla. When I taste Agricole i usually pick up this earthy and licerice note, it is also present here, but together with a refreshing minerality. Not fully my cup of tea, but i can appreciate the obvious quality.

Ein sehr schöner Agricole. Vielleicht nicht am dominantesten, aber für mich am verwunderlichsten ist das Aroma von jungen Bananen, das insbesondere nach einiger Zeit Luft deutlich wird. Ganz anders als die Banane, die man aus Jamaika und co. kennt. Ansonsten sehr vielschichtig, mit dunklen Aromen von Holz, Nuss und Kaffee, aber gleichzeitig auch tropischen Früchten und Pflaumen. Die 15 Jahre stehen diesem Rum gut, sodass mir der vergleichsweise niedrige Alkoholgehalt erst nicht aufgefallen ist. Wirklich lecker!

Sehr schöne Nuss-Note!

die Nase ist gigantisch nach Maracuja, Vanille und viel Fass mit gerösteten Nüssen. geschmacklich dann Richtung junge Banane, Ananas, Feige, Birne und Sesam. dazu relativ trocken, säuerlich und viel Holz. insgesamt sehr lecker und komplex aber nicht 100% mein Ding.
