Color : amber
Flavour : toasted nut, lemon & sage, mango, passion fruit, finish of spice like white pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg
Palate : mid-bodied, long lasting, sweet finish
Aged 100% in re-charred Bourbon barrels, it's an elegant rhum that suits any palate. Very nice paired with dark chocolat or exotic fruits
Taste is still on spices. Alcohol is a bit more melted than the VSOP one (but still present even in the aftertaste). I would expect it a bit less harsh...
Not my usual kind of rum of choice but this was a very pleasant surprise. Anything with a bourbon ageing process usually puts me off but I found this rather subtle which pleased me. Nice flavours of honey and something else maybe sage? One I would try again without hesitation
I compared this side by side with the JM VSOP Rhum. Although this is more expensive, I prefer the VSOP. This was stronger at 45% (vs 43% for the VSOP), but the VSOP seemed to have more flavor to it. I enjoy strong rums if they're really good. But I didn't find this to be really good.
Smells and tastes of bourbon, charred oak, pepper, and a little cinnamon. This seemed harsh to me, and lacked a sweet rum flavor (too dry for my liking). Again, at 45%, I found this strong for what it is. Strong rums need to be great (like the 47% Diplomatico Ambassador Rum).
Tout se résume à 2 lettres. Que dire de plus. Achetez en
Grassy, pleasant and a wonderful finish...........
This is a spicy rum with a good bite. Good pleasant nose and flavour. And a very nice aftertaste. If You like sweet rum this is not the one for You. But try it anyway! You are in for a surprise!
Wow! Definitely a rum with some serious bite. Kinda grabs you by the booboo, but it finishes really smooth which was very surprising. Has all kinds of complex flavors from dried fruit to a hint of leather, earthy with a small touch of grass and we're talking the kind you mow. Not a hint of sweetness in a true RHUM.
Denne Rom er meget tung i smagen, minder lidt om cognac
En lækker duft. Med en utrolig underlig eftersmag jeg har svært ved at beskrive. Men når den har lagt sig efterlader den dog en dejlig eftersmag
Buon Rhum agricolo proveniente dalla Martinica, l'apertura è floreale con leggeri sentori speziati, l' evoluzione è su note di cuoio e olive, nel finale leggermente cacao.
Una nota di canna da zucchero fresca rimane sempre presente lungo tutta degustazione.
In conclusione un Rhum piacevole, con una discreta evoluzione che mi sento sicuramente di consigliare sia ai neofiti che ai più esperti.
Very good Rhum aricul . It's something for pirates.
Aika kirpakka ja polttava alku. Kun vähän maistelee, niin muuttuu kyllä ihan Ok rommiksi. Kokonaisuus kuitenkin keskinkertainen. En osta omaan hyllyyni.
Out the door for .49 shy of $70 this bottle sits in a lofty position. Options for excellent spirits are a plenty at this price point and thoughts of pitching in a few more bills to get through the doors of the rare and grand become very real. And indeed I was browsing the scotch isle while holding the stores last bottle of J.M XO!
Buyers remorse is another reality and such a let down when your hoping for a steak but get a turkey burger.
Many many bottles ago I took the VSOP on a camping trip and thought it was nectar so I wasn't at all nervous and settled my mind rather quickly heading towards the register. I knew I had to try the XO.
Well now I know for certain this is the real deal and holds its own sitting next to it's distilled brethren. Those whom demand an E ticket to get on the ride. It's refined focused and to the point. A recognizable quality is embedded into each sniff and sip and it's hard to put down. Bottled at a generous 45% a little acclamation happens so the profiles are numerous. It's the Bees Knees if....
You like oak bourbon and dry! Your probably going to have remorse if.....
You like sweet sugary molasses.
Ce xo a beaucoup de gout en bouche.mais il n a pas le cote fort de l alcool.il est plaisant a boire.Il est sur les epices un boise sucre et sur les fruits secs.ce rhum est bien maitrise .Pour moi je prefere le xo de longueteau ou la version 40 eme anniversaire de bielle ou la cuvee speciale xo de clement.mais c un rhum atypique.noye 8.4.
With his nice golden amber color this Rhum JM is pleasant. As soon as you open the bottle, you know it is an agricole one. Round and strong in mouth but once the burn is gone it leaves a good a pleasant taste.
Very happy to go back to agricole rum with this JM XO. This blend of rum grown old 6 years in bourbon oak barrels has a beautiful gold color with very long legs. Sharp body with spices, exotic fruits and vanilla aroma. Very long afterstate. You can detect the sugar cane at the end. Return to origins !
This is the first rum from Agricole . Smell really nice but when you drink it taste very strong with a bit of spices.
Beautiful rum offered by a friend of Martinique. Blemd of at least 6 years old rums.
Tasted few months ago and need to taste it again but I remember a nice nose of spices (cinnamon and nutmeg), licorice vanilla and cocoa notes. Some hints of orange. Long powerful grilled and toasty round finish.
Good sipping rhum. Very strong vanilla smell and it smells like there is a lot of sugar in it. Becomes very balanced when you drink it and very long finish with a bit of spices. You can feel that it has been finished in bourbon casks
Il est épicé et relativement sucré, le nez donne envi mais j'ai été un peu deçu par le gout en bouche... je lui en préfère d'autre
