This for some reason is both harsher and less nuanced than the Blanc. The vegetal notes are muted and the oak really doesn't add much to this one.

Slight grassiness with a touch of oak. Best of both flavor worlds. Aged 1 year. Any longer and I feel that you lose too much of the nice grassy character of an agricole.

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

First they are not easy to get, once we got the bottle down it took about 4 months to replace it with our local international spirit merchant. J.M are quite Rare, but i think that rum is always good to pair with a bit of sugar and lime or some exotic jam or chutney, This is how it seems to be drunk in Martinique.

If you drink it on its own, you will most likely loose the purpose of this rum, which is to be worked on with some basic ingredients according to taste.

Since I was quite impressed with their 3 year old VO and less impressed with their older VSOP, I dropped down to this 12 month aged agricole from them. I can also thank Rhum Clement for showing me that less aging and cheaper prices make for a better rhum agricole all around. It now looks like 3 years is optimum for aging agricoles.

Well, this gold rum is at 100 proof. The aroma is vegetal and mild wood. The taste is very hot pepper on the tongue with some burn going down if sipped neat. Adding an ice cube tames it, but at $40 US, all I can say for it is that it's bourbon qualities are minimized due to only one year of aging. It goes great with ginger ale. I will take the J M rhums any day over Clement rhums!

Visited the Rhum JM distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Self guided distillery tour ended with an open tasting bar. Rhum JM Gold was priced at EUR 19 per bottle at the distillery. Pale golden color. Very nice and sturdy bottle design with a great old school label. Traditional super dry Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with plenty of grass, strong oak 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.
