Tasty, but not quite great
A puzzling rum to be sure, grassy, vegetal and slightly herbal. It's got a special funk to it that I really like. Not really a sipper as it isn't that refined but it adds tons of character to cocktails and not just a ti punch or daiquiri - although it really shines in those too.
Smells like tequila. Taste is slightly sweet, very grassy, faint hint of vanilla, black pepper/ tobacco spiciness. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Tastes a little like a good blanco tequila. Leaves a bit of burn in the lips, the way a moldy spicy pepper would. Not painful, but just enough to remind you it is there. I’ll have to try a Tiki-rita with it sometime.
Made multiple cocktails with this rum/rhum and i have to say that i quite like this rum.
made an ti punch and a planteur with this.
Rhum JM 160e anniversaire edition 50%
This has tasty vegetal, earthy notes. It is beautifully dry and very tasty. Works well in ti'punches and in Tiki drinks with a split base.
While there are definitely more interesting white rhum agricoles out there, the solid quality of JM comes through here at a good price. At 50°, it's also much better for Ti'Punch than the standard 40..
