And when I mean complex I mean how it does this complex dance on the tongue. Let me explain...

First off, the aroma in the bottle is enticing...almost buttery sweet...sort of a butter-sugar toast. I like it. Then the flavor.


First thing that hits you is a nice natural sweetness with hints of vanilla and toffee from the blue cane but then that turns into a nice spiciness before the oak flavor hits and causes your tongue to tingle. Then the warmth hits your throat slowly fading into a buttery spicy goodness.

That's what I mean by complex. And I can imagine someone with a more educate palate than mine would be able to distinguish even more levels of flavor.

This is a very good agricole rum that would work well by itself as a sipping rum as well as a rum used in mixed drinks and colas. Definitely versatile. Even though I have not tried one myself I imagine this would be an excellent rum for hot toddys.

I bought a bottle of Depaz Blue Cane Amber Rhum based on the largest liquor stores recommendation in Manhattan and what a disappointment. There are so many better flavored Rhum Agricole's out there, so skip this one. Nasty burn and very off putting flavors.

Being an AOC rhun made from cane juice instead of molasses, this is going to
taste substantially different from most rums.

It has a grassy, vegetal taste and reminds me a lot of a tequila. At first when I got my bottle I wasn't a fan, but either it grew on me or oxidation changed the taste more to my liking because now I find it quite interesting.

Hash and unbalanced. Surprisingly from a maker with many different options. Undrinkable neat, unfriendly on the rocks, unfortunately harsh even with coke.

light in body, little burn, dry overall. Interesting to try. The French styles are not for everyone.

For an agricol it hard labor and it's smooth, taste far from rubbing alcohol that many agricol are.

When I had this my notes were sharp and ricey. At the time I assumed better as a mixer. Had it alongside flor de Caña 7 year. My palate has evolved some so I’ll try it again and maybe my rating will change.

Perusing through all of my ratings for rhum agricoles, it seemed like an impossibility to pair great taste with a decent price. Most of the ones that I have yet to try are seriously overpriced. Many months ago, I remember looking up reviews on this one, but it was nowhere to be found on liquor store shelves in my area. Well today, I ran across a bottle of this for only $31 and figured that it could rate as a 7 at best.

I poured a half ounce into the snifter and let it breathe for a while. The aroma is very unique, possibly from the rare blue cane used to distill it. The taste is super smooth and buttery and is one of those rums that it would be all too easy to consume the whole bottle neat. My goodness, this stuff is close to heaven! It makes a great Mai Tai when perfectly paired to Smith & Cross Traditional Jamaican rum (or other favorite Jamaican), but why waste it as a mixer. However, it is cheap enough to do such a thing and not feel guilty.

This leads to another question. If this lesser known brand from Martinique beats the taste out of the other ones and is priced this low, how much are those other brands ripping everyone off? I am so glad that I did not abandon my search for a great rhum agricole at a sensible price.

Update February 13, 2019: Out of the 10 Martinquan rhum agricoles that I have tried, this is the only one deserving of my rating of an 8. This also includes going up against 3 from Haiti, 2 from Louisiana and 1 from Florida.

Update August 29, 2019: I tried to buy another bottle of this from the same merchant that I got my first bottle from. I was told that I had gotten that bottle on clearance, which is why it was so cheap. They will not stock it anymore. So this was a once in a lifetime treat. If you do find a bottle of this, it is the best rhum agricole for adding to Appleton Reserve Blend and Clement Creole Shrub to make the perfect Mai Tai. If you can't find this rhum, then Rhum J.M. VO is the next best bet.

Earthy, woodsy, grassy common with Agricole and cachaca rhums. This has a nice flavor which I'm sure has something to do with the sweet and flavorful blue sugarcane and fertile volcanic soil.
Class act that should be included in everyone's collection, house rhum and liquor cabinet.
