“Incredibly good barrel strength Agricole! Extremely complex and intense after green and red chilies, some coconut, banana, honey, plum and cherry, as well as ginger and herbs. The whole thing continues the same way on the palate and the alcohol is surprisingly well integrated. In addition, not too woody for such an old agricole. It gets a bit smokier on the finish, with toasted coconut and some green chile coming back.... Damn this one is really fun! 🤤 Probably by far one of the best depaz of all time!”

“The nose is invitingly sweet (creme brulee!) and fruity. On the palate, the alcohol is evident and the flavor quickly moves towards wood and becomes bitter. This intensifies towards the finish. No doubt from the "technical data" a good rum, but no, with this Agricole I will not warm.The variant with 61.6% (RX5465) I like better, but will also not my favorite.”
