„This is a wonderful rum and the price to quality is very good. I'd say this one is better that its predecessor. More elegant in a way. The nose is intense and fruity with leather, chocolate, wood trailed by light vanilla and nuts. The notes become much clearer once rested for more than 15 minutes. The palate is intense and well balanced with fruit, leather, chocolate as well as light wood and vanilla. The finish is medium to long with dried fruit, coffee and light wood and tobacco. I will have to order a bottle of this rum :-)“

„Un J.M des grands jours que ce Millésime 2004. Le nez se veut très gourmand et fruité, porté par le citron, la mangue et la marmelade avant de basculer sur des notes gourmandes de caramel, de crème, de chocolat et de sucre brun. Le boisé, les épices et les noix sont subtiles et complètent bien le profil olfactif. En bouche, le côté dilué n’est pas si gênant. L’attaque est douce, mais plus épicée et boisée que le nez. Les notes de café, de cuir et de tabac donnent du caractère à ce rhum, qui perd légèrement en gourmandise et en fruité ici. La finale évoque la fraîcheur agricole, un profil floral et épicé avec une trame sèche et assez complexe. Un rhum qui évolue tant au nez qu’en bouche avec le temps et qui propose une palette aromatique très diversifiée. Un Millésime réussi pour J.M.“

„Attention ….. très très bon rhum ! Un nez intense dans les fruits sec et sur le cuir. En bouche que c est bon, les fruits sec fondu sur du bois légèrement épicé… wouah ! Je valide à 100%, si j ai un truc à redire….. c est que j aurais aimer un % d alcool peut être un peu plus fort pour faire encore plus ressortir tout les arômes !“

„Impressionnant, parfait ! Jolie étiquette en cuir, bouchon ciré, je regrette juste que le bouchon ne soit pas en liège massif dans le style des bouchons Neisson, mais en liège recomposé... c'est le 0,5 en moins sur la note... Le nez est extraordinaire, une odeur très forte presque chimique qui se dégage du verre. Une odeur d'amande artificielle et d'esthers, presque de champignons frais, et de bois, en fond on sent la mangue et l'ananas. En bouche, le caramel très fin, un goût de bonbons d'autrefois, de vanille et de nougats, notes d'ananas et d'agrumes viennent compléter cette bouche. Goût réconfortant et gourmand. Un rhum exceptionnel et agricole.“

„Taste of 3 random rhum agricoles, let´s see. Rum Artesanal Clement 2015, 55,5% Tamosi Hiali Peré Labat 2013, 57,5% J.M Millisime 2004, 42,9% C: Dark Gold N: This is new! Burnt anis, lots. Dark fruits here as well, but it´s the anis that almost takes an ester kind of form. It´s pungent. It makes me think of spoiled fruits. After a while it calms down and the pencil shavings appear. Is this typical of long-time-tropical-aged rums? Not a fan. I also get bourbon and vinegar. M: Milk chocolate, that was nice. Faint pencil shaving fumes. I wasn’t expecting a big taste since this is the only rum that’s reduced to 42,9%. F: It vanish rather fast. B: No.“
