      Really no surprises once you read the blend constituents - 80% dark Guyana, 20% agricole blanc. Pleasantly dark brown, but still clear... not an opaque “black rum” (i.e. Goslings, Hamilton, etc.). A noticeable viscosity. Even at only 20%, the vibrant agricole blanc steals the show in all phases of the tasting. Despite being only the minority share, the two rums are so different in their assertiveness that it is all unaged agricole while mere hints of the sweet, rich Guyana dark fill in the edges. A hot nose. Cooked squash, fresh cut vegetation, and notable proof spice get gently softened by brown sugar, whey, and a hint of toffee. Rosewater, bubblegum, and brassy roasted peppers are thinly lacquered with molasses, heavy cream, and coconut. The tongue remains metallically puckered, however it’s the sweet molasses that controls the finish. Not the most elegant blend, but the upper limit of agricole was well-determined and its an enjoyable experience. Quite tasty, but likely best suited as a seasoning in tiki fare rather than a primary player other than Martinique-oriented recipes. Not a direct substitute for traditional dark rums. Update: Used this in a rum old fashioned and WOW. Has a bit of a cordial / liqueur vibe, and the added sweetness turns the Agricole a touch medicinal, but this is incredible. Such great balance and bold flavor. May end up replacing the bottle for these alone.

      Nice and funky. Had a nice sweet entry and the heat creeps up at the end.
