Ottimo regime francese. Sapori forti profumi intensi. Uno dei miei preferiti.
Rhum J. Bally
Rhum Vieux Agricole Martinique
12 Ans d'Age
Whoom ... this one smells intensive and tasty with a spicy aroma and sandalwood at first nosing.
Then there are notes of toffee and caramel, oranges, prunes and plum butter. It is slightly herbal as well.
After some time the aroma has changed and is dominated by notes of tobacco, smoke and ashes.
Hot and spicy at first mouthfeel, dominated by notes of cardamon and black pepper.
Tastes like toffee and caramel, sandalwood, tobacco and licorice with a dash of orange juice.
Long, spicy and dry on notes of black pepper and licorice. Slightly herbal and bitter.
Great stuff. Typical Old agricole. Vanilla, Pear, lemon, sandalwood, pepper and dried fruits
A 12 year-old agricole? Sign me up!
I loved the nose. But the rum itself is just too sharp. It holds onto its agricole brine just a bit too much. And despite enjoying this slowly over the course of an hour, and it still didn't fully mellow or open up additional flavors not present at the beginning.
This "Pyramide" is recommended, if you find a good deal for it.
Mycket bra vardags rom som smakar i min mening mycket vanilj .
I am partial to french style rhums, but even so, this is definitely one of the better I've tried. Added proof give it a strong taste profile, with herbal and buttery tones dominating, as in all agricoles. Excellent stuff!
