Tasty, but not quite great
Ein Agricole ohne Zusatz von Zucker, Karamell o.ä. (sagt der Hersteller). Kann angehen, denn er ist trocken, schmeckt irgendwie "ehrlich" und trotz der 50% nicht alkoholisch. Etwas Bitterschokolade. Nicht schlecht für den Preis.
You can actually feel the good quality of the JM rum but still the 50% are biting it... This is too much for that one. You can only properly taste it at the second glass which might for some be a bit too much already
Bottled at 50% and for a good reason. It's a young rhum with only 12 months in oak, the extra kick cuts the sugar. What it equates to is a huge blossom of pepper, banana and papaya seeds wrapped in an essence of oak. It's a perfect bottle to geek out on because it's neither a white nor 'aged' rum though defiantly more in the blanc camp. It's Huge in every sense and can either be sipped or mixed. It's rich without being cloying. Best of all it's priced right. Great buy.
Of course, it is not to drink a lot. The smell is strong, not tamed by a barrel - sugarcane, yeast, black pepper. Reminds the carmener. Burns the tip of the tongue, the tree bark and sweetness are felt. After a few moments, it lights up the palate and the gums. Fire without rage, woody, creamy. Bitterness and lump in the throat. This rum has a calming, relaxing and weighting effect.
Rough as a sipper, akin to rocket fuel and some moonshine I've had! Reasonable as a mixer, flambes beautifully and adds wonderful taste when added as the final ingredient to bananas foster.
