Ce rhum est une pure merveille. Un nez épicé et complexe, une longueur en bouche impressionnante avec des épices, des fruits confits. Une superbe réussite.
This rum is a marvel. A spicy and complex nose, an impressive length in the mouth with spices, candied fruit. A superb success
Looks sweet but won’t leave a mark on the glass. Smell is incredible floral fruity and woodsy.
Taste: absolutely no burn perfectly balanced no burn at all. And the packaging: leather label, wood case .
What a big dilemma the Rhum J.M. Vintage 2001 really is. Nice and powerful smell, dry as one can imagine, but what an explosion of flavors and such a smooth finish. Rhum Agricole's are not my cup of tea, but if you like dry rums, then this will be an easy 9 score for you. After well over 1,300 aged rums later, it will be a 6 score for me due to dryness which is very typical for the Rhum Agricole.
Not very different than rum JM XO, I would say.
Rather spicy and a bit rough (same alcohol sensation as JM XO) but a little bit more complex in body and aftertaste.
Good agricole rum but don't worth the price, imho. I would choose the XO if I would have to, better trade-off.
The JM Millesimes 10 and 15 years are mind blowers. You have to drink them straight up by little sips to get to the richness of their taste.
It will last long in you mouth, it is not sweet and rather strong, not a rhum to begin with.
All the millesimes are "straight from the cask".
Color : Light brown
