Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Lot's of alcohol in the nose but quite smooth on the palate. Not my cup of tea to drink neat. Dry and grassy, vegital. Some 'funk' apparently from fermentation. I want to try it in a Ti Punch. Should be good with the cane syrup and lime. Admittedly not really my taste in rum but I gave it a try. I can see some good cocktails coming from it's use but it would have to be wanting of the unique flavor of the rum. I think this may be an acquired taste. Definitely not bad, just not my style.
Purchased this for the sole purpose of mixing the perfect Mai Tai. I got my clues from reading Paul B’s review of Clement Creole Orange Shrubb, he has clearly spent a lot of time researching this elixir. Instead of the Clement Creole Shrubb, though, I decided to go with J.M’s version, Which is basically an orange infused agricole with some secret spices that include vanilla, clove and cardamom....I believe it’s a traditional Christmas drink on Martinique. To me, it’s an excellent mixer and not really a straight sipper. But when you put it all together... frighteningly amazing... My 81 year old mother in law had 3 for Mother’s Day and kept calling her friends to tell them how great her Mother’s Day cocktail was. A powerful concoction of rums that blends together better than Queen singing Bohemian Rhapsody, I kid you not! I’m going to submit the recipe to the masses and let the chips fall where they do, it certainly works for me and my crew. As follows......
1/2 oz. orgeat syrop
1/2 oz. Sirop J.M.
1 oz. Orange Shrubb
1 oz. Lime juice
2 oz. Depaz blue cane agricole
2 oz. Appelton Estate 21 y.o.
Enjoy the elixir and try not to over indulge!
Visited the Rhum JM Distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Comprehensive distillery tour followed by an open tasting bar. Shrubb JM was priced at EUR 11 at the distillery. Shrubb is the traditional Christmas drink at the island. Pretty decent old school bottle and label design. Traditional Rhum Agricole notes followed by grass, strong orange and floral bouquet to your nose and palate. Mild burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can easily add 2 points to my score.
Kannte bis anhin nur den Clement Liqueur Creole.
Schönes Honiggelb im Glas.
In der der Nase der Duft von kandierten Orangen die auf frischen Orangenschalen liegen.
Im Gaumen ganz zart und weich, die 35% 70 proof vermögen dennoch die Aromen zu transportieren.
Orangen, ja genau, bitter Orangen frisch gepflückt, ganz weit hinten auch noch Nuancen von Vanille, Karamell und Holz. Dieser Rhum lag nach der Aromatisierung auch noch eine Weile im Fass.
Sehr süss, wird mit reinem Zuckerrohrsirup nachträglich gesüsst.
Sehr langer, klebriger, süsser Abgang. Das warme Orangenaroma hält wirklich sehr lange an.
Ein Rhum für allerlei Anwendungen, ich brauche Ihn für Desserts.
Sehr reife Bananen halbieren und in einer Pfanne mit Butter sanft frittieren.
Mit Shrubb übergiessen und flambieren.
Kann auf Pudding, Kuchen, Glace etc. serviert werden.
Until now only known the Clement Liqueur Creole.
Beautiful honey yellow in the glass.
In the nose the scent of candied oranges lying on fresh orange peels.
In the palate quite delicate and soft, the 35% 70 proof are able to transport the Aromas.
Oranges, yes sure, bitter oranges freshly picked, very far behind also nuances of vanilla, caramel and wood. After the aromatization, this Rhum was still in the barrel for a while.
Very sweet, is sweetened with pure sugar cane syrup afterwards.
Very long, sticky, sweet finish. The warm orange flavor really lasts a long time.
A rhum for all kinds of applications, I need it for desserts.
Cut very ripe bananas in half and fry gently in a pan with butter.
Pour with shrubb d'orange and flambé.
Can be served on pudding, cake, ice cream etc.
it s not a rum but a rum based orange liquor, typical product from martinique, good proof, it was a good
souvenir from there ...
on the island is also very cheap, drinkable neat (with an ice cube or two) but also good in cocktails
This orange liqueur made from rhum agricole is good for one thing and one thing only - to make perfect Mai Tai's with the right rums. This one is nowhere near being sticky sweet like Clement Creole Shrubb, which I have always been using for my Mai Tai's. As a matter of fact, the relative lack of sugar in this one would qualify it to make margaritas. Forgive me for even referring to tequila, but both rum and tequila serve their purposes.
Sinaasappel likeur gebaseerd op de agricole rum van JM. Heeft weinig meer met rum te maken maar zeker een goede vervanger voor de triple sec/orange curacao in een Mai Tai. Heerlijk.
