Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
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.
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.
I have a bottle of this which I have in fact had for some time. Mainly because I find it so poor that I reserve it for cooking, but I don't know any recipes with rum, so it sits there, in the dark. When I finished many bottles of other rum, I have returned to it, and been reminded of why it is left in the drinks cabinet for so long. It is 45%, so has a definite kick, which is good until the alcohol evaporates to leave an unpleasant chemical taste in your mouth. My view is that there are much finer rums, at lower prices. I flushed this down the toilet to make way for something worth having.
Average rum which gives a different twist to rum and coke due to the agricole taste to it. Much prefered to your typical bacardi and havana club.
Saint James Royal Ambre is one of the easiest availability Rhum Agricole's out there. Quite cheap price leads to very immature flavor profile. It is very dry and has a harsh burn, so not a neat sipper, but mix it with Coke and down it goes. Nasty but short burn at the end.
This one is cool. Light and friuty rum. Very nice mixer and more than suitable for ti punch or mojito. Even drinkable on the rocks
This would be considered an inexpensive and introductory agricole rhum. The taste is on the harsher side with some burn. Not considered a sipper this rhum has some of the nuances found in many of the better Agricole on the market. Grassy, earthy flavor o the dry side. Not a bad rhum for the price but not comparable to the Neisson's, Clements and J.M' of the Agricole world.
