The St James white rum is not the best rum in class. However, in France at least, it presents by far the best ratio Price / Quality. It's good and honest product that can be used in cocktails and Ti Punchs.
Saint-James agricole white rum is very good to make some strong Ti-Punches! Put a lime and sugar in your glass and you'll enjoy like you're in Martinique!
Let's try this 50% unaged agricole.
Nose: Typical white unaged nose greets me. Some say it's plum, because it smells like Sliwowitz.
But I would say it's a lime aroma. It smells like Caipirinha. Some metallic notes are there, also some grasy and peppery notes in the background.
I had Nanny of the Maroons some weeks ago, it's the same typical lime aroma of an unaged rum.
It's good but also not aged, would prefer that for mixing.
Taste: It starts grasy with lemongras , then the lime takes over. It became spicy and some peppery notes appear. Some prune aromas are in the background. The finish is long and peppery, of course spicy.
It's a strong and spicy agricole. You can sip it but there is no need to.
It's very good for the price, but I would mix it. Would rate it with 54 points.
Value 25€: 2.5/5
If I had to choose between this and Clement, I'd take it home with a bottle of each and ask for a week of reflection ... then another ... and another ...
First time I've had the French Agricole stlye rhum. I am intrigued. First, I am a huge rum lover but also a huge tequila lover. This rhum, sampled straight up, has a crazy resemblance to tequila especially in the after taste. Not a bad thing as this is a strong, harsh drink straight up. But I did sample a good 2-3 oz straight to confirm my initial feelings on the flavor. Yes it's rum (Ron/rhum) but there are absolutely hints (strong hints) of tequila on the finish. Not a bad thing for me, as I love tequila. Tried mixing in a tri punch and it was very good. I can't say I love it as a rum, but I am VERY intrigued by this. I am definitely going to dive I to the Agricole labels going forward...as I am LOVING the finish on this. But it's too harsh to sip straight up. Ranking as a 5 for now until I get a bit more time with this and to explore this new version of rum I've been introduced to by my friends from St Lucia.
Long time I didn’t had this one but with a bit of syrup and some drops of lime, it’s a classic of all times (although the rum for itself is a bit basic)
Got a bottle of Saint James Blanc Rhum from a local grocery store on my last night here at CDMX. Bottle and label design looks very nice and unique. Strong alcohol from the sugarcane method and such a burn to your nose and palate. This is not a neat sipper due to such a strong burn, so mix it up with your favorite soda.
