Ein intensiver und holziger Rum… was für ein Geschmackserlebnis… ! Absolut Top!

Reichlich 56% und kein stechen in der Nase. Überraschend fruchtig und wenig floral. Der Gaumen wird zuerst dominiert vom Fasseinfluß aber dann kommen auch die feineren Noten aus der Nase durch, wunderbar! Keine alkoholische Schärfe weit und breit! Der Nachklang wieder sehr holzig aber fein nuanciert.

The cask is almost taking over this rum and it's dominated by oak. A heavy rum made of fresh sugar cane.

A nice Agricole, which has not lost its herbal elements despite the aging.

Je m'attendais à une claque de bois, et au final la claque est présente mais pas toute seule ! Cette dernière s'accompagne d'élégant fruit secs et de note sombre en tout genre. Une belle découverte.

die Nase ist vielversprechend fruchtig und säuerlich, aber geschmacklich mir dann leider viel zu holzig, säuerlich und zu bitter und trocken. den Rest des Samples werde ich im Mai Tai verarbeiten glaub da kommt so viel Holz gut aber hier ist es mir einfach zu arg.

Verkostet als 3cl Sample. Eine wundervolle rote Farbe im Glas und erfrischende Menthol und Zuckerrohrnote in der Nase. Gefolgt von Leder, Frucht und Lack. Geschmacklich setzen sie die Noten der Nase ähnlich fort. Zunächst dominiert Frucht, welche von Pfeffer, Lakritz und Holz abgelöst wird, ohne besonders bitter zu sein. Alkohol ist nicht bemerkbar. Alles in allem sehr leckerer Rum. Der Preis von 120€/0,7l (Stand08/02/2022) ist zwar recht hoch, aber dafür bekommt man einen tollen Rum, der für mich mit Bielle vergleichbar ist.

Un rhum qui a beaucoup à offrir et avec lequel on se fait plaisir. Je préfère la mélasse mais un top daily dram pour ceux qui préfèrent l'agricole.

Le bois qui joue le rôle de chef d'orchestre en nous envoyant toutes les notes qui la a nous offrire dans les papilles. Un jus de bois d'une très belle réussite et très plaisant à boire ! 👍

Très fruité européen au nez. La bouche est très très boisée et épicée avec une note végétale.

Wie schon Batch 1 ein sehr leckerer Agricole. Dennoch lassen sich deutliche Unterschiede zu seinem Vorgänger finden. Weniger Frucht, dafür mehr holzige Aromen und Gewürze. Während Batch 1 noch sehr scharf war, ist das ein Jahr ältere Batch 2 deutlich schwerer und komplexer, aber weniger stechend. Die trockenen Noten bleiben ewig im Mund und klingen noch lange nach.

Superbe Saint James, très boisé mais élégant. Énormément d’épices et de bois en bouche estompant un peu les fruits rouges du nez. « EDIT Calendrier de l’avent à l’aveugle par Simon : Sample 3 : * Nez : Menthol, bois, réglisse, fruits tropicaux, cuir * Bouche : Boisé, piment, amer * Finale : Menthol, piment Pur jus, Saint James, Martinique ? »
