It's a complex rum, great notes, great finish, very persistance, a lot of fruits in my nose.

Color : amber
Flavour : toasted nut, lemon & sage, mango, passion fruit, finish of spice like white pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg
Palate : mid-bodied, long lasting, sweet finish

Aged 100% in re-charred Bourbon barrels, it's an elegant rhum that suits any palate. Very nice paired with dark chocolat or exotic fruits

I love this rhum, and find it to be a singular experience. A fresh sugarcane note mixed with wood and ash is what I experience here, and it is wonderful, but also pungent and intense. It's an amazing rhum, but not something I'd sip on every day, or keep around as my only option. I like drinking it alongside (alternating) a more traditional style rum. The contrast is always enjoyable. This is a must try, though, and truly special.

A solid choice, very different from the JM white (but in a good way). It has subtle and complex flavors and a persistent finish.

Searching for something to grab and store for the second quarantine, i thought about trying something different. Noticed this brand being mentioned under "no sugar added"; check! Fatrumpirate rates it 5 stars; check! It being a genuine extra old (french style); check! Result = instabuy. Obviously, i immediately sank in, right now at the very moment that i am typing. The smell is heavy but sensational, even though i cannot describe or decode. The texture is smooth, the burn almost nonexistent, the taste is grassy, reminding me of my herbal tinctures but way better, the aftertaste is like chewing herbs and the lingering grassy sensation was extremely welcome... It's as if you took a sip out of a herbal tea, after some time passes from the moment you gulped. This stuff is lovely, even though expensive. And the total absence of sugar, makes it a great, natural treat!

Harmonious and fragrant, it still retains vigor and fruity scents of sugar cane

Nose: Warm, pleasant, classy. Some hints of spices, wood and caramel
Palate: The first sip was very harsh, got better after the second sip: hints of very old wood, spices, some chili maybe.

It has a typical Martinique nose with a strong taste. Good Agricole

If you really like Rhum Agricole's, then add 3 to my score. Otherwise, if you enjoy sweet aged rums, the Rhum J.M. XO is super dry, like a desert. The flavor profile is very strong, but unmemorable. There is surprisingly strong burn at the end, and you will only remember the alcohol burn.

Not my usual kind of rum of choice but this was a very pleasant surprise. Anything with a bourbon ageing process usually puts me off but I found this rather subtle which pleased me. Nice flavours of honey and something else maybe sage? One I would try again without hesitation
