Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
Really struggled finishing this bottle. It actually taste more like Whiskey than it did like rhum
Passe dans un rhum coca mais sans plus... Bouteille édition 250ans de la marque
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.
Not so good taste for a sipper
Maybe good for cocktails
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.
Probably OK for mixing in a cocktail, not my favourite way of drinking rum, but not a rum that stands on his own
Sampled Saint James Royal Amber Rhum Agricole, which I found very dry. Not a fan of Rhum Agricole.
Belle robe acajou
Nez moyen, alcool.
Goût : assez particulier , avec un boisé prononcé,limite résineux.
Finale : longue
Un rhum agréable, sans prétention et relativement bon marché.
Plutôt en cocktail.
Pour un bon St James, viser les XO.
Rhum agricole de base bon rapport qualité/prix un peu sec mais se voit bien pour débuter la soirée
Aging is 18-24 months. Agricole from Martinique
Color: deep, dark. I hope this is an aggressive barrel, not caramel
Aroma: slightly spirituous, typical herbal notes, licorice, vanilla, sweetness, cocoa
Taste: simple, but dense. Fortress in 45% is not felt. Sweetness, dry, fresh, flowery-herbaceous
Aftertaste: not long, warming, slightly harsh.
73 points and 6 points on the romreitings scale. This is a young golden agricole rum from Martinique. Likely it was made for cocktails, should be very interesting. It is quite pleasant to drink it in pure form, the youth is felt. Drinks well with typical notes for the agricole. For lovers of agricultural rum will have to taste.
Huge liquor aroma, doesnt has a good taste, and it is not an aged rum.
Pas mauvais, mais on ne sent pas les notes florales, il n'a pas un goût très marqué à part celui de l'alcool. À utiliser surtout en cocktail.
I was in a French ski resort and was at a loose end for some rum and really didn't want to shell out the exorbitant amounts asked for the likes of Zacapa 23, so thought at €15 a bottle that I would chance it. At that price in the supermarket in a town where restaurants charge €25 for an average cheeseburger, I knew what I was in for.
I drink all my rum straight up, even those - like this - that it probably is best to mix (maybe it is about time I move away from this!). This is a mass produced, fiery, unsophisticated rum but one that is easy to see as an Agricole. Given the choice between this and something equally priced like Mount Gay Eclipse, I would probably plump for this although I suspect many wouldn't.
Having said that, I didn't open it until I got home so might as well have save my money as the bottle now resides next to Bally Ambre, which is superior and not that much more expensive. However, I do think that it is useful to dip into these lesser Agricoles so that you can appreciate the finer rums in the cabinet. :)
Kein schlechter Agricole, dafür stark.
Frisch und fruchtig wie jeder Agricole aber auch nicht mehr.
No bad Agricole, but strong.
Fresh and fruity like any Agricole but also no more.
