They have Rhum St. James here:

I would just get the cheapest bottle ($18.99) for mixing. I have not yet ordered from them so I can't vouch for them.

Did you find Lemon Hart 80 proof? I have only seen the higher proof lately in stores (the 80 proof is available online).

Has anyone tried the El Dorado Demarara as an alternative to Lemon Hart? It's cheaper (for the 5-year) than Lemon Hart. It's available here:

HulaHula~
I'll be at HiTimes tomorrow, so I'll take a look. If it's there do you want me to get a bottle for you, or are you wanting to look around Vegas some more for it? I can give it to you on our trip up to the Crawl.

Martinique Saint James Rum found! $18.31 total including tax. There were 3 of the Martinique rums:

  • Royal Amber - $16.99 plus tax
  • Hors d'Age - $30.99 plus tax
  • Extra Old - $36.99 plus tax


I assume that it was the Royal Amber that you wanted, which, according to Hi-Times, is the 'standard' Martinique. There were 6 bottles of each there. Also, it seems that this is one of the rums that can be sipped, so I bet it must be very smooth tasting. Hula, I will give it to you when PolyPop and I see you for the crawl.

My local sources were all out recently, but just restocked in the last weeks. I just get the Amber, that's what is usually meant in a recipe like the Mai Tai.

Hi there!

Anyone knows anything about Rhum J.M.? In Europe it's quite extended and well, although it's kind of expensive, it seems to be good quality stuff. I have the Ambre and it's tasty in the MaiTais, but kind of lacks that "nuttiness" supposed to be in the Martinique. Comparing it to the St. James Ambre, I would say JM it's a bit sweeter. Any comment for that?

I have a couple JM rhums and plan on getting more. While I'm not an agricole expert I do find them to be extremely good, and in a more "pure" way towards agricole than the St. James which are excellent mixing rhums. The JM ones seem to be better sipping rums, or in something simple like a Ti Punch. I highly recommend the JM 1997 neat - what a fine, complex rhum that is. I had Ti Punches this weekend with both the White and the Gold and preferred the white which I thought made a fantastic Ti Punch.
