Kein schlechter, dafür aber ein zu aussage- und profilloser Rum. Hätte wohl noch ein paar Jahre mehr Lagerung vertragen - insbesondere im Mund sticht der Alkohol selbst nach einiger Zeit an der Luft noch spürbar heraus, das übrige Bouquet ist gefällig, aber zu austauschbar. Ein gefälliger Tropfen, kein Highlight. Da gibt es Interessanteres von Chamarel, obwohl dort zumindest bislang primär Rums vergleichsweise jüngeren Alters (und die auch eher selten in Fassstärke) abgefüllt werden.

This rum was spectacular in the way that the nose was significantly different from the palate. The nose is light and elegant with tropical fruits, grass and some vanilla. The palate on the other hand is fruity with a warm touch and a lightly smoky wood flavour. The finish is fruity with chocolate and a very light pinch of barrel. Price to quality is very good.

Une nez de mirabelle ou je trouve l alcool très présent. En bouche je trouve l alcool trop présent et pas suffisamment bien intégré. Je vais essayer en le laisse aérée plus longtemps pour voir car je pense qu il en a besoin

Wyrazny podmak anyzu. Pieprz, krotki do sredniego finiszu.

Für mich der beste Rum aus Mauritius bisher, aber dennoch mit Luft nach oben. Während in der Nase die pflanzlichen Aromen dominieren, zeigt sich am Gaumen eine bunte Mischung Karamell, Frucht und Noten von jungem Holz. Dabei ist eine alkoholische Note (Cognac oder Williams-Birne) zu erkennen, die vermuten lässt, dass etwas mehr Zeit im Fass diesem Rum durchaus gut getan hätten. Meiner Meinung nach gut und mit typischen Agricole-Noten (wenn auch kein „echter“ Agricole), aber nicht gut genug für den Preis. Edit: Nase >> Gaumen

an der Nase relativ fruchtig und würzig nach grünem Apfel und Piment und etwas alkoholisch scharf, im Geschmack dann Hauptsächlich trocken, holzig und scharfkantig alkoholisch und unausgewogen. dazu etwas Anis, Apfel und Lakritz und salzig bitter... insgesamt erinnert er an Calvados, gefällt mir nicht so gut und ist einfach zu jung und auch zu teuer mMn.

Clairement pas une réussite, c'est dommage.

In der Nase steigt sofort der Geruch von Vanille auf, begleitet von einer Note von Cognac, weiter entwickelt sich Mirabelle und ein Hauch Anis. Am Gaumen dominiert zunächst junges Holz, der Rum breitet sich warm und leicht bitter aus... es kommt etwas Anis und Pfeffer hinzu. Im Abgang bleibt das junge Holz und erdiges Gras! Ein guter, aber nicht sehr komplexer Rum
