Tasted 12/16/21 at Laka Lono
Proving yet again that my rum palate is an outlier, I gave this a 5/5 on my rum passport and noted "I like it! This tastes like furniture polish, in a good way!"

First they are not easy to get, once we got the bottle down it took about 4 months to replace it with our local international spirit merchant. J.M are quite Rare, but i think that rum is always good to pair with a bit of sugar and lime or some exotic jam or chutney, This is how it seems to be drunk in Martinique.

If you drink it on its own, you will most likely loose the purpose of this rum, which is to be worked on with some basic ingredients according to taste.

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?

A strong smell of honey, sweet, light fruity. The taste is also light sweet at first, honey, only light alcoholic. The finish is more dry and woody.

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?

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.

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

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

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.

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.
