Engenhos do Norte Rum Agrícola 980 Madeira 40%

RX9967 Good Column Still Rum Under 100€

The Rum Agrícola 980 Madeira from Engenhos do Norte distillery offers a delightful experience for rum enthusiasts. Crafted from sugarcane juice and distilled in a column still, this rum is known for its fruity aroma with hints of citrus, dried fruit, and woody notes. On the palate, it reveals a dry, fruity flavor complemented by leather and woody undertones. Smoky, leather/tobacco hints and a touch of black currant add depth. Although some found the finish short, others appreciated the good balance and complexity. Blended from various aged rums, including some aged up to 21 years in French ex-wine barrels, this rum embodies the unique character of Madeira's agricole tradition. Ideal for those seeking a distinctive and complex rum experience.

“Overall an Agricole with a great nose, but with a rather weak taste. This rum, Beneficiado 980, is produced by Engenhos do Norte in Madeira. It’s made from cane juice and Madeira is btw the only place besides the French Overseas Departments that’s is recognized as producer of Agricole by the EU. It’s a blend of rum distilled in column stills aged for 3 respectively 6 years in French ex-wine barrels as well as some aged for 21 years in French ex-Madeira wine barrels. The name, Beneficiado 980 comes from that the brand was introduced 1980 and Beneficiado means that there is some Cane Honey added to round it up.”

“A good representative from Madeira. Does not stand out particularly, but is pleasing. Very fruity on the nose. The taste then reveals a lot of blackcurrant. Very watery though.”
