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.
