This one is all about subtleties. A very nice sipping rum. Not a show stopper but it wouldn’t be an everyday option if it were. I’ve had the Rhum JM VSOP as well and prefer this. Great option for the money
Le nez est complexe.
La bouche équilibré entre la noix le caramel les fruit sec et le bois.
La longueur est plus que bonne.
D'une parfaite maîtrise.
Aucune fausse note.
I'm in love with Agricole Rhum and J.M. is one of my favorite distillery (if you go to Martinique a visit is more than worth). Compared to it's "younger" version, ambree, the taste is richer: tropical fruit, tropical wood, caramel and some spice, like pepper. The smell is rich too. I found it great. If I had to be honest, I was expecting something a bit smoother but in any case it's still a great product.
Yes, the nose is great, fruits and such. The body was not as dry as I expected, but maybe I am just getting used to it. Still, nothing profound going on, just smooth rum for cognac lovers.
I get a lot of grass, citrus, apricot from this rum. I wanted to try a rhum agricole to see the variety from the typical distilled molasses based rums. I have come to the conclusion that I am a molasses fan. While I can appreciate the difference now and I'm sure this is an excellent rhum, it is just not for me. It was not cheap ($75, I think), but some lessons are not cheap. Now I know.....
JM XO est un rhum qui m'a agressé la bouche ce qui fait que je lui attribut la note de 7,4/10. En revanche, en nez très fruité et en bouche une fois la langue apaisé, une explosion de saveur épicé ! Tres intéressant. A suivre avec le temps et les dégustations
