To date, this has been the finest rum I've experienced. Very sophisticated. Purchased a bottle in NOLA and brought it home. Had been saving and savoring over a few years. New Year's Eve 2014, I had friends over and they polished it off without my realizing they'd done so. Am writing this several years after my last sip, so have forgotten its nuances, but I do recall a wonderful aroma and a very well-balanced, pleasantly warm feel on the tongue that lingered for a while.
I was finally able to visit the distillery in 2009 and this millesime was one of the greatest old rhum that I have tasted
Agricole's aren't usually my cup of tea, but this one I will look out for again. The harshness is quickly forgotten to allow a pleasant charred bourbon cask flavour with just a touch of sweetness and a smooth finish endear this rum to even this non-agricole loving Paley.
Powerful on the alcolic side and gentle on mouth. Vanilla, cacao, coconut... but balanced with wooden notes and some light toasted coffee.
Fantastic rum finely balanced. Too much rum today look like syrup or liquor. This one shows that it is possible to get a tasty and fabulous elixir without artifice and additives. For purists.
I purchased this bottle about a year back and finally decided to check out the contents. A strong and traditional JM bouquet greeted me with a warm golden hued liquid that was just begging to be sampled. I gave the glass 5 minutes or so to breath and took my first sip. I was greeted with a sudden burst of alcohol that quickly melted away leaving hints of white fruit, oak, vanilla,caramel and coffee...... not only delicious but very elegant and interesting. Not a sweet agricole like La Filibuste, but a smooth, mature version of JM, 1845. Very clean finish that hangs on a bit. I’d recommend this Rhum to agricole lovers, it’s on the high end, but a nice show off Rhum that won’t let you down.
Una maravilla de Ron. Potente, con un dulzor moderado pero presente, no es material para novatos. Perfecto para beber a palo seco y disfrutar de lo que un buen Ron puede proporcionar.
I managed to get my hands to a Rhum J.M. 1999 Vintage at the same time as the 1994 Vintage, so what a back-to-back test. It is one of the best Rhum Agricole's out there, and an amazing value. This one is quite strong, so you will get the alcohol burn but only very briefly. It is very flavorful, I would call it a true delight. It will be a strong 9 if you are a fan of Rhum Agricole style. Very close to the hard to find Rhum J.M. 1994.
Not my favorite but definitely in the top 10, only reason and purely my own taste finds it a bit too strong on the afterburn. Lovely flavours though, a cultured rum.
