4 yrs old - very nice smell and color, totally authentic taste of sugar cane - so typical for agricole rhums. I love it. It is a bit stronger while including only 42% alc.,
but idealky sweet at the same time. I like drinking it after tough days at work, though. Definitelly, it can be recommended!!
Had the pleasure of drinking some agricole rhums directly at Martinique, this one is a huge surprise! I don't care girls think it's too harsh, this if what agricole should taste like, even though finish could be more interesting. Won't screw up your mixed drink, even though I wouldn't pick this one purely for mixing, but you people know how thinks work once it's late in the night.
tried it when visiting the distillery. Pretty smokey in mouth and not very desirable to drink on its own. Probably a good mixer, but given the price tag, there are much better alternatives (Neisson, HSE, Dillon blanc etc.).
Got a bottle of Saint James Vieux 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.
Classic French style Rhum agricole from Martinique with a Smokey dry taste. Great dark colour with a not to strong nose. Sipping gets you hints of wood, vanilla and a subtle alcoholic taste.
Lovely nose. Hint of licorice (and grass). Tiniest bit of vanilla. Taste: slightly briny. Dry and delicious. Hint of tequila. Reminds me of J Bally (that's good).
Premier test de rhum agricole, et je dois dire que je n'ai pas trop accroché.
On se trouve face à un produit assez brut, très alcoolisé et aux saveurs assez neutres.
On ne peut pas dire qu'il soit mauvais, mais je dois avouer que je préfère les rhums plus doux et plus aromatiques, question de goût.
Edit: je lui rajoute un point car, avec le temps, j'apprends à l'apprécier et à me détacher des rhums artificiellement sucrés. Ce type de rhum est certes moins accessible aux débutants mais les goûts évoluent avec les découvertes...
