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.

This had a strong fragrance, lemon, tar and ammonia. I would not try this again.

Nose: very juicy, sweet sugar cane
Palate: harsh, strong, rough, intense grass

I liked this rhum at once. Nice old-school bottle with funny picture. Aroma and taste are very good too. Fresh cane juice with little bit sugar with nothing extra. It fits excellent for regular Ti Punch.

This has become my go to for the agricole rum in my mai tai where it works really well. (Combining with Smith and Cross, and Appleton.) Not as grassy as some other agricoles I have tried.. Strong burn. Hard to drink neat.

Rhum agricole that’s very heavy on grass, citrus, herbs, and some faint residual sweetness. Excellent and aggressive agricole without some of the usual petrol/bad alcohol flavor

Bottle steady and stylish label. Strong and pleasant aroma of yeast, cane juice, currants. The taste is perfect for unaged rum with a strength of 50% sweet, bitter and pleasantly sharp. It is impossible to drink for a long time, but the first impression of aroma and taste, the remaining clarity of mind due to the lack of sugar and wood additives is simply amazing. Plus savings on high alcohol content.

This is going to the other extreme with me finding out that rhum agricoles need to be kept from aging too long in oak barrels because they absorb too much of the woody flavor and wind up becoming gluten free bourbons.

The aroma is very similar to a cachaca and the taste is lots of pepper on the tongue with no after burn or bitterness. It does not even rank among my best rated cachacas. This one is only good for Ti Punch, but ice cubes do tame it down. Don't even think of sipping it neat. For only $30 US for one liter, it still is not a good buy.

One other good thing about rhum agricole blancs from Martinique and artisinal cachacas from Brazil is that no hangover can be expected. As you can see, I rank them in the same class. However, with the taste of this rhum, I seriously doubt that anyone could drink enough to see if there is actually no hangover the next day. With this one, you are much better off with the taste of Avua Prata Cachaca or Neisson Rhum Agricole Blanc. However, as bad as I now make this one sound, it is still a lot better than anything by Bacardi or Captain Morgan, thus retaining my original ranking of 6.

Visited the Rhum JM distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Self guided distillery tour ended with an open tasting bar. Rhum JM Blanc 50 was priced at EUR 12 per bottle at the distillery. Very nice and sturdy bottle design with a great old school label. Traditional super dry Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with plenty of grass and a lot of floral notes to the nose and palate. Surprisingly strong burn at the end since its so dry. Rhum Agricole fan boys can easily add 2 points to my score.

Awesome nose. Light funk, underripe banana, grassy, lightly herbal.
Sweet at first then quite dry across the tongue, finish has all the vegetal and herby sweet notes.

Overall a very nice unique agricole. Would be awesome in a ti punch or rum old fashioned. You could sip it if you like but I really frel it would shine an a very simple 2 or three ingredient cocktail.
