I'm really not generally a fan of Agricole, but having jsut finished a Dillon 7yo, I realised that I really should have some more bottles in my cupboard in order to give variety.
The nose is a bit of a let down for me. A little unsophisticated and industrial. But on the palate, the body exhibits a lot more complexity. great balance between cane and oak. A richness and sweetness is wonderfully married to the dryness. And 45% is as smooth as a 40% rum.
Getting to think that maybe I should really explore Agricoles a little more often.
Great sipping rum

J. Bally Ambre Rhum is a great introduction to french style rums (rhum agricole). It's a fairly young rum, but quite complex in terms of flavour. Bottled at 45%, it's got some spiceness and a dry quality to it. The nose is pretty good as well, quite floral and herbal! Value wise, it's a great rum!
Indeed it's a 7.5 stars!

The Martinique Classic. On view, we can identify an agricole, by seeing an hot amber colour and a density tipical of vesou.
On taste, it is a youg rum but very full with a little bitterness and chestnut honey aroma and a pungent smell. It's a big distillate.The ratio quality/price is great!
according with me, the J.Bally Ambrè it the best RVM to enjoy on monday night soccer matches!
The only one weakness is the crown cap: a cork would have exaltend the hearing sense too.
