Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
These are all going to be a shade different unless yours comes from the same batch. Mine was selected by Hi-Time Wine Cellars, distilled 01/10/12 and bottled 29/07/16 Cask #20070230 bottle 166 of 448. A stout 44.4% ABV aged in New French Oak.
The agricole grass comes through strong with huge pepper notes. A relatively young aged Rhum it strikes a nice balance. Immensely enjoyable and interesting.
These types of bottles are super rare and do not last long. If you love 'real' rum, not the sweetened mixer crap and pass on the opportunity to grab one of these single cask series then your doing yourself a huge disservice. It may not be what you had in mind when you walked through the door but if you see it GRAB it!!
Very pronounced expression from the casks, nice Bourbon warmth with vanilla and tabacco notes. Not a lot of the floral overtones experienced with unaged or younger Agricola rums. Really great sipper.
This rhum has none of the familiar vegetal tones usually associated with agricoles. It is a fiery and aggressive assortment of flavors: bourbon is very prominent, but so is red wine. And cookies. Spice and oak in the brief finish. Blindfolded, I might guess this to be a molasses-based beverage. Also, it has a very thin mouthfeel and a beautiful sunset-red color in the glass. There is almost too much going on here. Nothing about this rhum is bad. I just wish it would calm down a bit. If I had to guess, I would say it was made in Hollywood...
Delicato, molto fine e secco. Sapori di bacche e frutta secca.
La maison clement nous fait plaisir avec ses single cask.
Ce rhum est un bon rhum a déguster, gouter, decouvrir.
En super rom som smager dejligt og længe, der er tydelige noter af vanilje, bourbon fadene i eg.
Den er simpelthen fantastisk.
Den skal absolut drikkes rent uden is eller andet forstyrrende.
Different then other Rums, oaky and strong with extra long aftertaste. I suggest for your friends that prefer whiskey.
A very good rum. Well balanced. Nice color and great taste!
Maybe not for all. At first a lot of alcohol, after the taste. It seems like a whiskey. The first impression you can have is "too strong", but if you taste it relaxed, sipping slowly, you will discover its facets.
I think I would have always a bottle of it, because it is very different from the others.
My friend brought this battle directly from Martinique. We opened the 214/406 bottle.
The rum is light brown and provides 42.2% alcohol. You can feel a hint of fig when nosing, when you taste is burns on the tip of your tongue, but pleasantly. The throat is also quite strong but the afterburn is smooth.
In general I like the agricole rums for their freshness and this one is really great.
Bon petit rhum sec! Assez intéressant! Bonne dégustation!
Un très bon rhum. C est un des premiers que je goûte. Je le recommande.
Its quite complex so i would not advice it to people that only starting to drink rums. Good looking representative rum a good buy for your restaurant or just to sip with guest that you know need honoring. Sweet smell of vanilla, caramel, little bit of black peepers.
Complexe, doux , equilibre. very good quality price.
Un rhum assez complexe avec des notes de moka et café auxquelles succèdent des épices notamment. La finale en bouche est longue et agréable.
Nez viril et boisé bien que montrant une certaine rondeur.
En bouche, l'attaque est sucrée, puis évolue vers plus de virilité et une finale boisée.
Excellent pour son prix et démarrer dans les rhums vieux. Il manque un peu de finesse.
Voilà un rhum avec du caractère !
Amateurs de whisky et amateurs de rhums agricoles vieux s'y retrouveront, avec un produit puissant mais non agressif. La finale est boisée et d'une longeur surprenante !
