Recommendable to most
Out the door for .49 shy of $70 this bottle sits in a lofty position. Options a plenty around this price point but was extremely pleased with my choice.
It's refined focused and to the point. A recognizable quality is embedded into each sniff and sip and it's hard to put down. Bottled at a generous 45% a little acclamation happens thus so the profiles are numerous. It's the Bees Knees if....
You like oak bourbon and dry!
You may have buyers remorse if you like sweet sugary molasses.
Delicious aged Agricole. Loads of body so I’d guess it’s been aged a decent amount, caramel and grass and nuts. I really want to give it a 7.5 but I’m not allowed.
Intense high alcohol nose, with banana, caramel, woood, nutmeg and vanilla. Powerful smooth pallet. Earthy, nutmeg, pepper, sweet citrus and toffee. A very nice and intense rum.
Nous avons eu la chance de le déguster sur place.
Au nez il semble rond et laisse présager de la douceur. On sent la vanille et le caramel.
En bouche, c'est rond et cela tient ses promesses
Pas sucré mais juste ce qu'il faut de douceur.
On sent les fruits cuits
Rhum J.M. XO tastes like many other Agricole but less aggressive, so that’s why I think it’s a good agricole to start with. The flavour are very elegant and you can for example smell citrus, salvia and exotic fruits. In your mouth you will recognise pepper, musqot, cinnamon and a lot of oak.
If you want to test Agricole, try this one!
Picture: My Rhum J.M shelf.
Toasted coconut husk with leathery and ashy notes. Nutty warm butter follow by zesty orange peel.
Flavour of caramel with pleasent vegetal ashy which you won't miss on aged agricole. Fruity (dried apricots), dry and woody with touch of spiciness.
Peppery citrus and really enjoy the dry oak/ cedar wood on the finishing. Ginseng bitter sweet towards the very end.
It is probably more difficult to drink but the experience is amazing. Rhum J.M XO is full bodied agricole rum with no compromises; give it a chance if you are looking for a next level rhum experience. If you have never drunk rhum agricole before I would rather recommend you Clément VSOP.
