Tasty, but not quite great
I liked JM blanc so much and I hoped this one will be the same. But JM gold turned not so good - it was kind of hard so it is not fit to drink neat(( Instead it was the best to making Evening Ti Puch!
Received as a gift, had seen you it but never tried. As a sugary rum fan this did not suit me. Smelled ok but the taste was some sort of bourbon variation. I like bourbon but could not put this down. Regifted to my 20 year old son, I’m sure he’ll throw up on it
Because this rum is a grass to glass alcohol, it has an extreme grassy taste to it. The liquor is smooth, but the green taste is why I had to take 4 points away.
This is the first agricole I have tried. It's young aged for 12 months in charred ex bourbon barrels and hailing from the French overseas territory of Martinique.
It's fresh and floral on the nose, it's nice but different to the Spanish / British rums I am accustomed to. It's bottled at 50% which in my opinion makes it a little too firy to sip neat. The grassiness of the nose comes through on the palate, I could drink it over ice but prefer it mixed. Would make a good cocktail rum and a good price at just over £30 on Amazon. Would definitely buy again and would like to try others from the JM range and other agricole rhums!
Prima argricole om als mixer te gebruiken. Jaartje gerijpt op ex-bourbon vaten. Grassig, specerijen en hout. 50% abv.
Goede voor in een Ti'Punch.
This was a gift, glad I didn't spend the $50 for it or I would have been disappointed. I feel like I am sipping a strong whiskey or green label bourbon, Don't get me wrong, it is tasty but it seems more like a corn mash then a cane mash. Has a sharp bite like Jim Beam and if it was much sweeter it would be a Southern Comfort look-a-like. I'll finish the bottle and enjoy it but it was not the rum I was looking for.
I am only starting to really taste and learn about agricol rhum, so I don't have much to compare it with.
But overall it seemed a bit like drinking brandy, with a more almost herbal smell and taste, from the sugar cane I think.
50% is also a little harsh.
