Aromas of a botanical garden and a flavour upfront like johnnie walker which finishes with that earthy vegatative dryness and cedar with banana leaf. Pretty good but could obviously do with some further aging and a bit more sweetness. Oh and that funk of an aftertaste of an agricole is its best feature.

It is the special niche of rums, that I am slowly getting my interest for. It’s whiskey-rums. Tastes like petrol, wood and tires. Not a bad one.

stram lukt og en smak av røyk som minner mer om whisky enn Rom.

I loved this rum, a perfect balance of scotch-like oak and rum sweetness. Very smooth, not overly dry. It’s simple, almost half scotch, half cane flavors, but it works really well. I’d give it a 10 if it wasn’t an agricole because I felt like the usual grassiness wasn’t there, and it was almost like a molasses rum base with just enough difference to tell it wasn’t. Still excellent.

When people here the word agricole they often associate it with dry or even harsh rums, but that is a misconception and this brand of rum is a perfect example of the more rounded and balanced agricoles.

Nose: Vanilla, pine and burned toast. Very earthy and juicy in the back.
Taste: Cinnamon, orange and mint blends well with a small hint of funk in the aftertaste.
Overall: If people want to get into agricoles this is one of the best ways to start. It is not overpowering on the "harsher" notes while still bringing the trademark taste of a true agricole.

This quite young agricule rhum is has typical aroma which is fresh fruity with hints of wood. In the taste there is lot of wood than hints of mint and liquorice. Aftertaste is fresh and fruity with hints of citruses and sweetness in the end. For 7 years quite interresting agricole rhum worth trying.

Gräs och kryddor i smaken, lite kort eftersmak. Krydd- och pepprigheten tar över.

If you like agricole, you get a lot of the good stuff in this bottle at a decent price. The rum sports a redish amber color and treats your nose with grass, crushed black grapes and vanilla. Not very complex but very nice in all it’s simplicity. In the mouth the crushed black grapes and grass is complimented by rounded wet wooden notes with a lovely hint of bitterness. A very approchable, decently balanced and nice agricole with spices and vanilla on the finish. What I like about Saint James in general is that it seems to be slightly less dry than other brands from martinique.

The smell is grass, lemongrass, licorice and mint candy, hint of wood, the taste is pleasantly smooth and full, starts with honey-like sweetness (without added sugar), lemongrass, deeper tones of wood and cocoa, turns into aftertaste of toffee and licorice, ending with mint candy and lemon grass. I am still trying to get to terms with the Agricole rums, the characteristic grassy undertone in both smell and taste is something I am still learning to love, but this Agricole has style and depth.
