Avec une aqulité dans la lignée des autres JM, il est évidemment plus orienté cocktails.

Firey on the palate when sipped, perhaps better when mixed, providing subtle rum notes while maintaining a good kick.

Rough as a sipper, akin to rocket fuel and some moonshine I've had! Reasonable as a mixer, flambes beautifully and adds wonderful taste when added as the final ingredient to bananas foster.

It took me quite a while to obtain a bottle of Rhum JM rum. Hard to come by in this part of Florida. However it proved to be well worth the effort. This rum is helping cement my affection for good agricole rums from Martinique. Don't know why exactly but I know I like Martinique agricole rums thus far.

The color is a beautiful pale amber. The aroma in my snifter is distinctly cane juice but almost like a brandy. Kind of surprising.

The flavor is nice and grassy with distinct sugar cane juice flavor. Can't miss that. Some spiciness to it. At 100 proof (50% ABV) it has a little more of a kick to it than regular rums but it does not make itself known with a heavy burn but instead a strong warmth that lasts longer than most. The finish has some oak to it as well as the spiciness I mentioned earlier. Definitely drier rum. Very good. Delightful, even. Could be used as a sipping rum if one is so inclined but I recommend it be used as a mixer especially in classic tropical drinks. Zombie, anyone?

Of course, it is not to drink a lot. The smell is strong, not tamed by a barrel - sugarcane, yeast, black pepper. Reminds the carmener. Burns the tip of the tongue, the tree bark and sweetness are felt. After a few moments, it lights up the palate and the gums. Fire without rage, woody, creamy. Bitterness and lump in the throat. This rum has a calming, relaxing and weighting effect.

Bottled at 50% and for a good reason. It's a young rhum with only 12 months in oak, the extra kick cuts the sugar. What it equates to is a huge blossom of pepper, banana and papaya seeds wrapped in an essence of oak. It's a perfect bottle to geek out on because it's neither a white nor 'aged' rum though defiantly more in the blanc camp. It's Huge in every sense and can either be sipped or mixed. It's rich without being cloying. Best of all it's priced right. Great buy.

You can actually feel the good quality of the JM rum but still the 50% are biting it... This is too much for that one. You can only properly taste it at the second glass which might for some be a bit too much already

Ein Agricole ohne Zusatz von Zucker, Karamell o.ä. (sagt der Hersteller). Kann angehen, denn er ist trocken, schmeckt irgendwie "ehrlich" und trotz der 50% nicht alkoholisch. Etwas Bitterschokolade. Nicht schlecht für den Preis.

I am only starting to really taste and learn about agricol rhum, so I don't have much to compare it with.
But overall it seemed a bit like drinking brandy, with a more almost herbal smell and taste, from the sugar cane I think.
50% is also a little harsh.
