Excellent rapport qualité prix ! 12 ans pour 42€ sur de l’agricole c’est cadeau ! Se boit très bien avec son petit côté vanillé mais aussi salin. Maintenant qu’il est s’est ouvert il est super.

Typischer Agricole vertreter für mich. Aber nichts besonderes spannend oder komplex

Ein wirklich runder und gefälliger Rum, ein Agricole XO aus Martinique zu einem sehr guten Preis! Runder Mix aus Karamell, Schokolade und Frucht. An der Nase sehr deutlich grüner Apfel. Hier und da florale Agricole-Noten. Im Mund zwar trocken, aber es hält sich in Grenzen.

Un rhum vieux agricole pur, simple et terriblement efficace par excellence. Le nez très fruité entre agrumes, pomme verte et fruits tropicaux sur un fond légèrement boisé et vanillé. En bouche on reste sur les mêmes traceurs avec la canne à sucre bien présente. Très gourmand malgré la sécheresse de l'agricole. Fin de bouche une légère amertume pas désagréable vient pepser tout ça. Clairement une réussite comme souvent chez Dillon (marque sous côté à mon sens). Un rapport qualité/prix rarement égalé surtout ces derniers temps...

Super smooth agricole with a great roasted nuts plus chocolate twist. Unbelievable good value for money.

A phenomenal XO blend that exhibits all the signature flavors of Dillon: Overripe banana, mocca, prunes, little bit of vanilla, and in this instance and very surprisingly for Dillon a whisper of licorice (this is not a Neisson after all). Normally I am not a fan of a licorice note but here it is so beautifully wrapped that it gives the flavor a stringent mid-note that beautifully complements the otherwise tropical and decadent flavor profile. On a personal note I might also add that this is a very good bottle to warm up people to the (ar)cane wonder that is rhum agricole, particularly for those who may have had a less than ideal first experience with one of the harsher unaged variants.

Preis-Leistung ist top.

Leicht und Ausgewogen. Ein wenig Schärfe, pflanzlich und ein bisschen Kakao im Geschmack. Aber zu langweilig. Erinnert an Clement 10, nur leichter.

Bernstein Geruch: Frisch und fruchtig dabei weich und mild. Riecht nach Anis und Minze, sowie Vanille. Geschmack: Süß und cremig, weich und mild. Fruchtig, beim Schlucken zudem würzig mit Aromen von Vanille, Cognac und Minze. Abgang: Mittellang Fruchtig Sauber, holzig, trocken mit Fass-Aromen. 85 Punkte Sehr schöner Rum - tolles Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Perfekt als Standard für die Hausbar.
