This particular agricole was salty during nosing, then grass and compost and after careful extraction also cognac barrels.

Très sucré pour du agricole mais pas si facile à boire à cause de l alcool beaucoup trop agressif pour moi.
Je le trouve plutôt caramélisé

Rhum JM VSOP Agricole
Quick review:

For those who don't know.. R'h'um as opposed to 'R'um, is made using raw sugar cain juice squeezed directly from the freshly cropped plant. Rum on the other hand is made using the molasses extracted from the sugar cain. This makes for a much dryer, Earthier taste.
On the nose- a little funky with grass and dried fruit.

First sip- sooo different than other agricoles I've tried. Spicier than others. Sweet but dry with citrus and pepper. Earthy tones but not overwhelming. Very, very well balanced and nice smooth tingle on the finish. I've read other reviews saying this was harsh and tasted like pure alcohol but I think they're crazy. This is so delicious that im mad at myself for not having this in my bar all along. If you see it. Get it. Thank me later.
Na Zdrowie! 🥃🤙😁

Rien de particulier. Rhum correct sans plus. Peu complexe

The pallete doesn't fit in with the aromas or finish, otherwise this would be really nice! On the nose you get cherry cola, with vanilla coming out more as it airs. In the mouth however, it's just wood and grass, with a slightly hot and oily feel. I don't really know how the aromas and taste can differ so drastically, but they clearly find a way! Then on the finish, there are creamy notes of vanilla, marshmallow and raisin. Should I find myself in the mood for agricole, I would happily turn to this bottle. It's just that with so many more frankly more enjoyable non-ag rums out there, I don't see myself ever pining for agricole, which really makes the previous statement moot.

In Italian and English.

Rum agricolo, invecchiato per 3 anni in botti di rovere ricarbonizzate, che contenevano Bourbone, per poi fare una finitura in barrique nuove di rovere americano. È un buon distillato, garantito anche dalla AOC (Appellation d'origine contrôlée) Martinique, non molto complesso, ma che dovrebbe costare forse un po' meno.

All'olfatto: abbastanza intenso con prevalenti note agrumate ed erbacee tipiche dei Rum agricoli; subito dopo, facendo svampare un po' l'alcool, si avvertono note più morbide di chiodi di garofano e leggera vaniglia.

Al gusto: chiaramente prevalgono da subito le note erbacee ed amarognole tipiche degli agricoli, subito smorzate da una nota più morbida ma leggera di cocco, vaniglia e di legno. Il finale è medio e la bocca resta pulita.

Rum con una complessità media ma di buona fattura, adatto a chi si vuole avvicinare ai Rum agricoli, che per esprimere il massimo delle loro qualità dovrebbero avere un invecchiamento che va dai 3 ai 7 anni al massimo.

Consiglio per tutti: quando annusate un rum (o qualsiasi distillato), prima di inserire il naso e inspirare, effettuate un leggero soffio nel bicchiere e subito dopo provate a sentire i profumi. Questa operazione serve a svampare un po' la potenza dell'alcool che altrimenti vi porterebbe a bruciare nel naso e ad anestetizzare il vostro olfatto.

Provate a berlo prima da solo, poi dopo aver mangiato del cioccolato fondente (dal 70 all'85% max), ed infine dopo aver mangiato una mezza fetta di arancia fresca (compresa buccia è importante) con dello zucchero di canna sopra. ;-)


Agricultural rum, aged for 3 years in reclaimed oak barrels, which contained Bourbone, and then finished in new American oak barrels. It is a good distillate, also guaranteed by the AOC (Appellation d'origine contrôlée) Martinique, not very complex, but that should probably cost a little less.

On the nose: quite intense with prevalent citrus and herbaceous notes typical of the agricultural Rum; immediately afterwards, causing the alcohol to flare a little, there are softer notes of cloves and light vanilla.

On the palate: the herbaceous and bitter notes typical of the agricultural produce immediately prevail, immediately dampened by a softer but light note of coconut, vanilla and wood. The finish is medium and the mouth remains clean.

Rum with a medium complexity but well-made, suitable for those who want to approach the agricultural Rum, which to express the maximum of their quality should have an aging ranging from 3 to 7 years at most.

Advice for everyone: when you smell a rum (or any distillate), before inserting the nose and inhaling, make a slight puff in the glass and immediately afterwards try to smell the perfumes. This operation serves to arouse a bit 'the power of alcohol that otherwise would lead you to burn in the nose and to anesthetize your sense of smell.

Try to drink it first alone, then after eating dark chocolate (70 to 85% max), and finally after eating a half slice of fresh orange (including peel is important) with some brown sugar on top. ;-)

This 43% dram is very gentle on the nose. Maple, candy, cherry, hint of solvent. Mouth - I like it! Rather woody, smooth, and complex. I could just sip this one all night.

This is among my very favorite aged agricoles.

8-, 8
