Ok some digging around reveals that this is a blended Caribbean with rums of various ages in the mix - and it is a big mix. Now this stuff is cheap but I wouldn't say it was crap. It's actually not bad especially if you enjoy a bit of tobacco influence from the ageing process. It arrives sweet and spicy with fruit and light banana. Develops medium cracked black pepper and some nice tobacco wood. Finish gives more light banana light spiced heat and a touch of rum sourness. You can drink it straight and its not loaded with sugar. It is however loaded with E150 oh well.. Anyway if you find it for about 15 quid give it a crack.

Tried the Saint James Reserve on a sunny Sunday afternoon. 6 to 10 year old rhum agricole made from cane juice at Saint James in Martinique means its super dry and absolutely no added sugar. Bottle and label looks mediocre. Golden color. Very strong alcohol to the nose. Rhum Agricole dryness and a nasty burn at the end. Not my cup of tea.

Most rum beginners love Diplomatico, Spiced rums, whatever tastes so smooth and sweet (thats because Diplomatico has over 40g sugar per bottle added). This rum is just what it is, it has 43% of alcohol, thus it really bites... but you can feel the taste of sugarcane in there, the freshness.

I do really recommend this agricole rum, it is cheap and it is great (if you want smoother ones, go for Reserve 12 or let it stay for like 5 minutes to eliminate the alcoholic scent).

Basic taste. Good for weekdays and to get the mojito taste to the next level

Decent standard rum, but still prefer Appleton V/X in the same category (price/style).

This rhum smells better than it tastes. Nice dark amber colour in the glass with a nose of caramel , ethanol and maybe a slight honey note. In taste though thats when it goes downhill..
Strong burn with a whisky profile.. no fruits just a sweetish first impression in the mouth which rapidly turns dry and whisky like. Had to swamp with cola to finish it.

Nice color and good legs. The aroma is ok but nothing special. The taste is a little harsh but I got a bottle for 17 bucks. I probably wont buy it again but I am glad I tried it once.

This is a good rum that smoky and has a lot of flavour. It's my rum to a good standard I had it on the rocks which is a delight ...

Aroma with tones of smoke and ash.
Taste bit spicy from 43% alohol volume but quite smooth. Strong notes of smoked oak casks.
