Když jsem se dozvěděl, že Koalí bere na vandr (možná i mě natruc:) obyčejný rum James Cook, došlo mi, že je nejvyšší čas ochutnat tento tradiční, a Lucou Garganem na třetí místo v osobním žebříčku zařazený, rhum z Martiniku.

In the UK especially if you want a Cheap agricoles for your home bar for experimentations... Not as good as Clement or damoiseau but it's a tenner cheaper so I'll forgive it and only clocks at 40%

Another White surprise or perhaps it is me who developed a sweet tasting tooth for White rums?
It is my second Rum from Saint James. i am aware this is an Agricole rum, which means it is distilled purely from sugar cane. and displays a unique flavor profile to this family of rums.
i am aware that my tasting judgement is based on different set of values (can be briefly read on my profile).
Nose: Lychee! Fresh distant of sweet sour zest, raisins and citrus, vanilla cake topped with lime squash, makes me wonder if there is a place that smells like this then i would like to spend some time there. nosing straight from the bottle just intensifies this impression. it is very rich indeed.
Palate: Lychee? Sugar cane juice sourness strongly preserved, bitter and sweet, slight ting of alcoholic youth, pleasant to sip and rolled on the tongue. medicinal tonic with citron dominating in the background, gently sweet.
Finish: Lychee?! Medium burn but develops quickly into a memory of pleasant bitter sweetness.

This is definitely a nasty formula as it's very easy to sip few drams too much. i just wanted to taste and i find out i just drank 0.25 l on this review. goes down well and easy, i could be marketed as the rum which is a vodka with a twist.

I rate it with at high 8/10 as it is both excellent value for money and a decent white sipper straight, and made a better impression on my taste buds than the 40% Abv Ambre.
it is not easy judging it against other high ranked white rums since the others i tasted so far were molasses based and also generously sweetened, which may probably influence the capability of judging the actual distilled juice.
1.7.22 Edit: After another session with this rum i find i enjoyed it even more after becoming used to it's unique taste signature. two snifters full with it aside a Pasta and Beef dinner, it passed in easier than wine for me, neat, straight. what a beautiful easy going white rum, Richer than flavored Vodkas. For it's price and if availability allows it will become my to go White Rum. if was possible would rate 86/100.

Lots of floral tones and notes of lime.
Taste bit like plum brandy, but fuity and smooth.
Excellent for Ti' Punch

Aroma's are subtle. Works real well in Ti Punch. Good length on the palate. Saint James' rums rarely disappoint.

Okey, keep in mind this is a cheap agricole rum intended for random french supermarkets, but to me it has it's qualities… obviously not primarily for sipping, even though you should cautiously try that anyway, this is a solid mixer and the basic and cheap entry into the agricole world, even though it clearly does some older agricole rums injustice.

Got this rum as the agricole element in my Mai Tais. Nice grassy herbal notes. Does nicely paired with Appleton Estate Rare Blend 12 yr Rum. Very nice in my mai tai.

It's hard to find a variety of blanc agricole rums down in Miami, so I'm grateful to have this in the mix with the omnipresent the usual suspects in N. America (Clement and Rhum J.M). For the pricepoint and profile, it's a good buy, and does a very standard ti'punch, appropriately vegetal and citrusy, although not nearly as bright as La Favorite.

40º is obviously very low for this style and doesn't bring out the more exciting peppery notes you'll hit at 50º, but it will do the trick.
