The nose isn’t too harsh & after 2 sips notes of toffee, caramel & silky finish never disappoints. Would have it in a daquiri or even a mai tai but preferred is probably neat.
Not worth it unless you get it for a 10 EUR. This one is age and bottle in France and not in Martinique.
The taste of alcohol over powers everything and you can feel it is unfinished. Quite industrial like taste to it
You will get it in any UK average bar/pub but that is seriously note worth trying unless you are 18...
Grabbed a bottle because there wasn’t much else about in the store , while going to a party and even drunk it would get inside! If baking with it would be a disaster!
You can clean stuff with it though
I remember the Ocho being taste and round in mouth. But I also remember being a bit advanced in my spirit taste by then..if you know what I mean
Caramel, Coffee, Oak Wood with hints of citris (Orange). Amber in Color with a nice logo stamp on the bottle. Very smooth and worth every penny it cost. Did not last a week in the house. The longer it sits in ice the better it tastes. 10 in my books.
Dry, salty and can’t be drunk on its own for sure. but it is worth the try if you are in Guadeloupe. would not waste the money on the bottle (thats my opinion anyway)
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.
I would buy this one as a standard aged rum. The price isn’t to high and it has a great taste, good body and balance overall. Drinking straight or with a bit of lime and a spoon of some exotic spice/jam
Again with Clement I found that the ones Saying product/made in France had a more industrial taste like to it compared to the ones bottled in Martinique
No bad, no great just a clement. I think this one is made, aged and bottle in Martinique, but be careful some of Clement’s Rhum are bottle in France and not worth the UK price.
It is a nice bottle and nice colour rum with a good taste but nothing out of the ordinary. drink it straight of course its not cheap!
Bought it from the distillery when visiting Martinique about 5 years ago and the Lady from the distillery shop said drink it like Vodka. so put it in the freezer and then drinking. I must say that My face from the first drams was quite like a baby biting into a lemon.
It is very strong but tasteful and cold.
Don’t dink it straight unless you have Russian blood. I found it very nicely paired in rum cocktails.
I did leave the bottle at my mother when I came back to the UK, and guess what she used it to make cakes with it! couple months later that bottle won a gold medal at world spirits brussels and the price tripled... I am writing with tears in my eye!
