“Pretty good rum from Bally and you get what you pay for. The Agricole notes are there just in a light version. The nose is warm, fruity and woody with nutmeg, tobacco, leather and a hint of varnish. The palate is also fruity and woody with sugarcane, leather, tobacco and a hint of iodine and flowers. The finish is medium long with wood, spices and dried fruits.”

“Un Millésime de chez J. Bally assez classique, qui offre ce dont on espère d’un rhum agricole : des notes végétales (canne à sucre) et herbacées, des épices qui agrémentent le profil, des arômes fruités (fruits secs, banane) pour la gourmandise et un joli boisé qui n’est pas envahissant. L’attaque en bouche est douce mais plus concentrée sur les notes agricoles. On ressent une certaine fraîcheur, des notes de thé et de tabac qui se joignent aux épices, au bois, à la canne à sucre et aux fruits secs. Un profil assez sommaire qui manque d’impact, de profondeur dans les arômes et de vivacité. La finale ne déroge pas à la règle et se veut douce et légère, avec une pointe de cacao, des notes rôties, des épices, de la canne à sucre, du bois et des notes florales et herbeuses. Les fruits font ici office de figuration. Un rhum assez généraliste, sans grande surprise, qui tombe en désuétude par rapport aux autres cuvées de la marque, et même face à la gamme permanente qui se positionne à un niveau similaire.”
