Batiste is clean. Clean to the palate and clean to the body. I found Batiste at Trader Joe's in Oakland and it's my go to spirit of choice. It takes on the flavors of the ingredients that it's mixed with. It brings out the flavor of a quality amaro in a negroni and doesn't over power seasonal fruit drinks.
I'm not usually a rum drinker, but I'm a big fan of Batiste and love using it in my mixed drinks 👌🏻
This rum was rated a 9.5 as of this review. Interestingly, 9 of the 12 reviewers who rated this 9 or more have only one review as of my rating, and 12 of 12 have 3 reviews or less all within 3 weeks of each other. So I'm guessing the 9.5 score is bogus.
Regardless, I found this rum to be an interesting, slightly above average agricole blanc. Smells and tastes of sugar cane, floral notes, and maybe even a little ginger. Quite unique.
Though good, I think the Clement agricole blancs are a better choice.
One of my friends told me about this rum so when I saw it in my local boutique liquor store, I bought a bottle. It was super yummy! Mix it with a little pineapple juice and it's even my dad's favorite drink (and he's not afraid to admit it!).
I was disapointed by this bottle. It taste sugarcane, alcool, nothing else.
I wish I had liked it more, but for me it had an unpleasant aftertaste, somewhat dirt flavored.
Clean, unique and such a good mixer with everything from coconut milk to ginger beer. I like it with just a squeeze of lime.
I purchased Batiste at my local Trader Joe's and was happily surprised to find it so easy to drink even straight, clean flavor. A must try and not just a summer drink!
Batiste is so pure and delicious it makes any cocktail more elegant!
My favorite drink using batiste rhum, squeeze half a fresh grapefruit and a splash of pink champagne! Absolutely delicious and refreshing.
Words that come to mind when I think of Batiste Rhum: Clean, Elegant, Fresh.
Unlike other agricole rhums, it isn't weighed down by overpowering nutmeg. The sugar cane flavour comes through, without dominating. It's light on the palate, with a touch of salinity.
It works best in cocktails that don't have a ton of ingredients, as it is a delicate rhum.. A daiquiri with Batiste is perfection.
I picked some up at Noe Valley Wine Merchant in SF. Great price for a clean and refreshing tasting run. Batiste with ginger beer has become my drink of choice at home. Enjoy.
I find it really easy to drink...vanilla tones...clean flavor. I love it with fresh fruit. And I love the company ethos!
I've had to go out of my way to find Batiste but it's worth the search. Subtle, crisp, clean and refreshing. Now that it's at Trader Joe's in California I know where to get a bottle or two. When will you be available in London?
Batiste Rhum has a pure and clean taste and is incredibly versatile as a cocktail spirit. I love it as a daquiri, a mojito, a champagne cocktail or just over ice with a little lemon twist. Because it is a food grade alcohol made from pure, unsprayed sugar cane juice, it feels as good in your body as it tastes on your lips: truly delicious.
I do not usually drink hard alcohol but, i recently started drinking batiste with some friends and coworkers and i have been converted to a rum drinker. It is perfect over ice or in almost any cocktail. Super easy to work with and goes down smooth with no hang over or headache. If i am not drinking my own home brew beers, i'm drinking batiste!
