I’ve tried this rhum for the first in Martinique at the Distillery. At the end of the tour, we tasted several different products of different ageing. This one was excellent served in the Ti Punch. Its taste is pure sugar cane with some scent and note of tropical fruit with a bit of personality given by the ageing. It’s not the rhum you want to drink plain because it’s not very smooth and not enough complex in terms of flavours, but with a slice of lime and a teaspoon of cane sugar it’s just perfect.
I had to raise the rating after finishing 2 bottles in two weeks... Did I say it's good for Ti Punch?

Because this rum is a grass to glass alcohol, it has an extreme grassy taste to it. The liquor is smooth, but the green taste is why I had to take 4 points away.

Rhum J.M Gold

Quick review:

Another agricole added to the bar after enjoying the JM VSOP. Unlike the later, this bottle was only aged for 12 months in oak barrels making it neither a white rhum nor an aged rhum and at 50% packs a much stronger punch.
On the nose- cane juice, pepper and grass.

First sip- The grass and alcohol smack you in the mouth instantly. Very spicy with notes of cane juice, nuts, pepper and oak. Very intense warmth instantly that mellows just as fast with a long tingly finish. Smoother than I assumed this 100 proof would be but not the biggest fan in the world regardless. Much Earthier than the VSOP. I think this would be great for cocktails, on the rocks or with a splash of water. I'd probably give this a 6 out of 10. Not my favorite dram but not bad at all. If you see a bottle give it a go as it's not very expensive. Enjoy!

Na Zdrowie!! 🥃🍻🤙

This is the first agricole I have tried. It's young aged for 12 months in charred ex bourbon barrels and hailing from the French overseas territory of Martinique.

It's fresh and floral on the nose, it's nice but different to the Spanish / British rums I am accustomed to. It's bottled at 50% which in my opinion makes it a little too firy to sip neat. The grassiness of the nose comes through on the palate, I could drink it over ice but prefer it mixed. Would make a good cocktail rum and a good price at just over £30 on Amazon. Would definitely buy again and would like to try others from the JM range and other agricole rhums!

Prima argricole om als mixer te gebruiken. Jaartje gerijpt op ex-bourbon vaten. Grassig, specerijen en hout. 50% abv.

Goede voor in een Ti'Punch.

This was a gift, glad I didn't spend the $50 for it or I would have been disappointed. I feel like I am sipping a strong whiskey or green label bourbon, Don't get me wrong, it is tasty but it seems more like a corn mash then a cane mash. Has a sharp bite like Jim Beam and if it was much sweeter it would be a Southern Comfort look-a-like. I'll finish the bottle and enjoy it but it was not the rum I was looking for.

Round, sweet, grassy, tequila-like nose. A friend said "nutty," which I agree with as well. Hugely grassy taste. The strength (100 proof) shows through in astringency. Medium-short finish. Very nice!

In typical JM fashion, this is an archetypal rhum agricole (elevé sous bois). Probably makes a killer Ti Punch. Mellows out nicely a bit after breathing.

Hard to drink straight, not a lot of rummy taste, maybe it is normal for this style...

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.

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.
