And now to something completely different
Agricole. No melasse, but cane (and vanilla) in the nose. Cane, vanilla and plum in the mouth, alcohol too. Long reminiscence in the palate: Cane

Non Plus Ultra Very Rare
I've been told, Riise rums are very sweet. So, this one is. And is not. First in the nose: tobacco and a bit of vanilla. Mouth: Actuelly and rea
The nose gets nuts, honey and prunes. In the mouth there is more of the same, a bit of oak and toffee. Long lingering. All in all very round. Class
Agricole, the way I like it
Smooth, a bit smoky in the nose and on the tongue. But also prunes and coffee.Very nice and long aftertaste of toffee. Like every Agricole: not sweet.
Double Cask Matured
Very round, very smooth
Now this is a rum that surprizes. It has a very rich body, but is not overly sweet. Pretty strong, but nor burning.
Not too soft
In the nose: a lot of plum. Toffee on the palate, together with some wood cask. Some nice fire when finishing. All in all: not too soft, not too smoot
A bit rough; but I like that
Tobacco, sherry and some kind of wood in the nose. Then dried fruit and still some sherry on the tongue. The finishing a bit rough and burning first -

Very mature, sweet and round
In the nose I find sugar, honey and a bit of vanilla. To the eye it is a dark and mature look. In the mouth, I find not as much sugar as to expect by

A rum that needs time to sip - and air to breathe
Very dark complexion. Not much in the nose - except vanilla and tobacco. This rum needs time to develop its taste. It is then full of tobacco, oak and
Very smooth, sherry and wood
Putting your rum into bourbon casks first, then into casks of two different kinds of sherry, seems to be a very good idea. This rum has vanilla and

Guatemala XO Extra Old Reserve
You almost can't go wrong with Plantation
Neither with this one. Very round, very smooth - no edges. Vanilla, chocolate: A rum for beginners as well as aficionados.
Something a little different
This rum puts you somehow back into ancient times. Times, when rum could smell and taste strong and down to earth. Petrol, leather.
Kirk and Sweeney
Not if you're into sweet rums
This rum ist not for you if you like the sweeter kinds of rum. It ist actually pretty 'dry'. A lot of oak, a bit of toffe, a little bit mor of coffee.

Nose: Vanilla, maybe a little bit banana. Taste: First vanilla, then oak an coffee take over. Aftertaste: Strong, then sweet. A very delec

XO Batch 001
The nose smells orange and some oriental spices.They disappeare on the tongue, where I have oak and dates. The oak lasts as a very smooth aftertaste.

Don't get fooled by the name "Bacardi"

Very light, a bit too much alcool
Very young, indeed. But, if one likes Agricole, not the worst addition to one's collection. Very nice sipping rum.
Vanilla and Whisky
Right from the start, there is vanilla in your nose. The tongue will feel whisky to start with, but a vanilla closing. Unfortunately, there ist no not
Zinfandel Cask Blend 11-Year
Somehow somewhat cheating
Namely: When you smell at it, it is lovely, fruity and tasty. It ist still so in the mouth, but only after one has absorbed the shock of cask strength
XO Extra Old
Lots of oak
Lots of oak, no added sugar (or, at least, just a tiny littel bit) - both in the nose and on the tongue. Unfortunately not very lasting on the palate.

A rum for everyone
Too sweet for my tast, to much vanilla, too much sugar. But certainly something for a beginner.

I actually do. There is raisin and date in the nose, first a lot of alcohol on the tongue, burning even. Oak in the finishing. If you like Agricole, i

Dates and apricots in the nose. A bit smokey on the tongue, with dates again and licorice. So far, so well. The finishing starts in the same direction
Strange kind of Rum

Vanilla in the nose...
Vanilla in the nose; coconut, cacao and oak on the tongue. Almost perfect if you do not like your rum too sweet. Unfortunately, there is not much left
Not quite a typical "agricole". There is oak, some caramel. Unfortunately, there is no body that would keep these things together. So, once swallowed,

Apple and cinnemon in the nose - very promising. But then there is not that much in the mouth: Cacao, cinnemon, coffee - but very thin. A very strange

A bit young...
A bit young: Too much untamed alcool. But a very nice lingering in the palate. Some spices I cannot name. Interesting.
Should be a little bit smoother
The nose smells toffee and chocolate. The chocolate is on the tongue, too; but there is also quite a lot of burning alcool. No lingering after swallow
Very smooth, very soft. Not much in the nose, agreable in the mouth, though. Easy summer-drink, I'd say.
As soft as the red variety
I can only repeat what I wrote to Capulet & Montague Bonplan Rouge: "Very smooth, very soft. Not much in the nose, agreable in the mouth, though. Easy
