Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Don't get the low ratings.... I think it has great flavour. Grassy, vegetal, over ripe banana. Perfect for Ti'punch which is big on martinique and is basically their version of the old fashioned.
The paille style rhum agricole is perhaps the most dubious, as it rests just a bit and doesn't pick up a heck of a lot of character compared to the vieux, nor does it impart the fieriness of the blancs. I've found a good one here or there (Pere Labat's gold hits the mark nicely), but this one is somewhere in the middle. Still citrusy and young enough, with more peppery bite than the Imperial Blanc, but the distillate flavor common in mass produced heavy congener rums makes this a little less enjoyable - it's akin to Ron Barrilito 3 star, without the sherry cask notes and clearly agricole on the palate.
Can be a little drain cleaner-esque if the mix is too strong
45% abv. I did approach this rhum with trepidation as the Reserve wasn't very pleasant but this was a lot worse. Started off ok , nice dark amber colour in the glass with a nose of caramel and slightly fruity notes.. then I swirled the glass and it changed its flavour profile to the smell you get when the tides gone out !
A cross between salt water and rotting seaweed.. it really took me by surprise ! This smell unfortunately transferred into the taste , I just couldn't get past it.. drowned it in cola just to finish.. yuk !
Nuz moj prvy agricole rum, ktory mi pripomenul, ze na mojej rumovej ceste som iba na zaciatku. V chuti alkohol a tráva, lieskove orechy, nič pre začiatočníkov a teda zatiaľ ani pre mňa, staci, ale pridat limetku, trstinovy cukor a ľad a hned to je 6++
Use when an agricole is called for in mai tai, etc. Decent ti punch
Un bon rhum pour les planteurs et autres cocktails.
Has those typical agricole qualities, citrusy, grassiness, acidity, alcoholic kick, this is not as acidic as white acricoles though and has bit too much unpleasant alcoholic taste even if mixed, some oakiness can be found.
Nothing special, works well enough in tiki cocktails like three dots and a dash but im sure there is more mature and complex options available too.
Σαν πολύ αυστηροί δεν είστε εδώ στο rumratings !!!!!!! αναλογικά με τα ρούμια που έχω βαθμολογήσει με 7 ίσως να είναι λιιιιγο πιο κάτω. Ήμουν ανάμεσα στο 6 με το 7 . Σίγουρα δεν έχει διάρκεια και ένταση .... Αλλά .... Λίγο η ιδιαίτερη γεύση του, το όμορφο μαγαζί, οι ωραίες μουσικές που έπαιζε, οι cult καταστάσεις που συνέβαιναν ακριβώς πίσω μας και ..... η Μαγική Νάξος στις Αρχές του Μάρτη ..... Βοήθησαν να πάμε την βαθμολογία προς τα επάνω. 7ρακι λοιπόν για ένα άξιο δοκιμής ρούμι, χωρίς όμως να περιμένετε ..... παπάδες
Definitely good for mixing, but a bit boozy and the result of ageing in wood does not produce the results other rhums have achieved. If you had a bottle laying around to be consumed, you would not say no cause it’s a Martiniquan rhum after all but there are other much better agricoles to be had :) 6.3-6.4. The nose is really boozy.
Non il rum più buono del mondo, ma comunque, visto il prezzo, raggiunge la sufficienza.
Rhum molto secco, in prima battuta spiazza un po' ma sul lungo periodo si fa apprezzare
Ce rhum dégage des notes épicées de cannelle mais assez sec en bouche.
Comme j’aime les rhum plus sucrés, je l’apprécie avec du jus d'ananas
It smells like it tastes, like chalk with washing powder and rotten bread! 2/10 because the taste has something "interesting" fruity hidden in there. But never ever again ...
Heavy, rancid, peanut butter?. Yet, somehow thin. Dark in colour but oak hardly noticeable behind the vegetal notes
I usually enjoy agricole funkiness but this rum relies heavily on less desireable fusel oils.
Its not vile, but its best poured in small doses to add flavour.
je lui trouve un goût tourbé, qui plaira aux amateurs mais pas forcément pour moi
Beaucoup l'apprécie, mais pas moi. Je n'ai pas aimé du tout.
Rhum and coke seulement sinon c'est vraiment pas buvable
Ruff, aromatisé, mauvais en drink. Très mauvais rhum
I prefer rum without anything else: no softdrink, no ice. But with this one that's not a good idea. I keep it to mix it someday with coke, probably. Don't even like it in my tea.
Taste is too sugary, plus it's got a nasty after-taste. It's (in my opinion) more to spice-up food like pancakes, than for your cocktail. hangover time
Nose: Woody, spicy notes mostly
It has been aged for 20 months in average in oak casks
Personally I believe that it is a very good addition to your own bar as a mixing Rhum given its price
(I found it around 20€), but I would never enjoy it neat
I had this one on a cruise ship way back in 1992 because it was the most affordable rhum agricole from the French West Indies. Little did I know that this was the French equivalent of Bacardi, aka rot gut. When I returned from the cruise, I even bought an entire bottle back at home in the hopes of improving on the bad sample on the cruise ship. It was still crap. The moral of this story is that when one wants to venture into the unique tastes of rhum agricole from the French West Indies, start anywhere else except for St James (and Negrita).
Cuando recibes un ron regalado por los mismos dueños y lo compartes con tus amigos siempre dejará un buen recuerdo. Así conocí este ron, ya se acabó y dudo que lo vuelva a encontrar.
