„An agricultural rum brut de fût that shows that even with a young age the complexity and the aromas can be there. The nose is very exuberant, between the vegetal notes that bring freshness, the aromas of coffee, chocolate, nuts and spices that give body and the fruity notes that round off the angles, the mixture of flavors is balanced and deep. The attack in the mouth is dry but very round, the wood and spicy notes blending perfectly with the tobacco and tropical fruit notes. The caramel and herbaceous notes are discreet but complete the aromatic profile well. The relatively long finish extends the pleasure with peppery, earthy and toasty notes. A very solid Karukera, complex, tasty and fresh.“

„Considering the age of this rum I'd say they did a really good job and the price is also really good. The nose is fruity with wood, spices, nuts caramel and a light earthy note. Leave to rest to get the full experience. The palate is fruity with wood, spices, nuts, chocolate and roasted tobacco. The finish is medium to long with wood, dried fruit and chocolate. After an hour the empty glass had a wonderful nose.“

„Very nutty in the nose, in the mouth join herbal notes to it.After the first taste, however, I am not yet convinced that the flavor profile is really what for me. Second tasting confirms the impression, exciting, well done, but not quite my case.“

„My first Karukera and it’s competently done considering the age. I think this used to be cheaper and would be a recommend at around 59€. Now it’s more like 76-80 and for that price just add like 5 bucks and pick up something like the Dillon 2013 brut de fut which is easily superior. Good, but not memorable.“

„Sehr leckerer und ausgewogener agricole. Alkohol gut eingebunden. In Sachen Komplexität aber nicht der über Bringer.“

„Probiert als 5cl Sample. Ein für Agricoles typischer Geruch, kombiniert mit Haselnüssen und Tee. Nach der etwas unspektakulären Nase gesellt sich am Gaumen zum Agricoleprofil eine schöne Bananen-Note dazu. Auch im Abgang nichts Außergewöhnliches. Würd ihn eher als einfachen Trinkrum einordnen. Wenn man eine solide Essenz von gelagertem Agricole in Fassstärke sucht, dann wird man hier nicht enttäuscht. Sucht man was besonderes, dann wird man eher woanders eher fündig. Der Preis von ca. 60€/0,7l ist trotzdem gerechtfertigt.“

„Geiles Teil für 55€. Toller Daily-Sipper. Super Nase und geile Farbe. Im Geschmack dann schönes Karukera Holz-Profil mit Cognac-Note. Abgang relativ kurz und unspektakulär, da macht sich die kurze Lagerung bemerkbar. Ich bin überzeugt und werde sicher noch eine Flasche holen.“

„Très beau produit.. Belle canne franchement... Le cognac apporte quelque chose“

„From the start to the aromatic finish, a very nice rum that convinces me especially with its great woody and spicy notes. Together with a very nice balanced fruit content. You can drink the almost 50% wonderfully neat, then it has more punch, but it also rewards you more in taste. In my opinion, you notice the cognac barrel through the grape association and especially through this beautiful wood aroma.“
