“Another really good rum finished by Velier. The Agricole notes are there just more subtle than usual. On the other hand the fruit, spice and wood flourish on the profile with a hint of coffee and chocolate. I like the warmth on the palate that slowly dissipates and sets free the other notes.”

“Typical agricole in the nose with roasted almonds, fruits, cherry, orange peal, red wine, spice and a dominant smell of oak. Mild and complex but delicious in mouth where you‘ll find all tastes from before. The Finish is medium long with tastes of cinnamon, wood, sugarcane, sour cherry and grass at the end 😜 Very pleasant to drink. This one needs some time to fully open. Alcohol could be integrated better. Nose: Sherry, red wine, agricole, barrel, oak, spicy, oak, nutmeg, roasted almonds, fruity, orange peal, red fruits, sour cherry, wine gum, sugarcane, chocolate Mouth: complex, mild, intense, delicious, agricole, fruity, sour cherry, plum, grapes, toffee, cinnamon, woody(oak) mocha, grass, sugarcane, tannins Finish: Medium long, sour cherry, grass, sugarcane, woody, cinnamon, coffee”
