Avec une aqulité dans la lignée des autres JM, il est évidemment plus orienté cocktails.

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!

Hard to drink straight, not a lot of rummy taste, maybe it is normal for this style...

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.

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.

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

Rhum J.M Gold

Quick review:

Another agricole added to the bar after enjoying the JM VSOP. Unlike the later, this bottle was only aged for 12 months in oak barrels making it neither a white rhum nor an aged rhum and at 50% packs a much stronger punch.
On the nose- cane juice, pepper and grass.

First sip- The grass and alcohol smack you in the mouth instantly. Very spicy with notes of cane juice, nuts, pepper and oak. Very intense warmth instantly that mellows just as fast with a long tingly finish. Smoother than I assumed this 100 proof would be but not the biggest fan in the world regardless. Much Earthier than the VSOP. I think this would be great for cocktails, on the rocks or with a splash of water. I'd probably give this a 6 out of 10. Not my favorite dram but not bad at all. If you see a bottle give it a go as it's not very expensive. Enjoy!

Na Zdrowie!! 🥃🍻🤙

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.
