Yes, hit it with a 1/2 ounce of high quality almond extract and shake like hell! It makes it better. But, really try the Tessier.

Haha, thanks for the tip. I don't think I'll be making Mai-Tais at home though (as attractive as that prospect once was). It just isn't something I could drink often enough to want to go to the trouble.

This agricole has a bold flavor with an edge to it. It makes a good Ti Punch with a tad more lime than usual.

I was hoping you would reply Hank, I always think of you as an authority on agricoles.

I was feeling pretty darn chipper when I wrote that post (trying to get rid of this pesky head cold I have). The Saint James is the first agricole I have ever tried. Probably not the one I should be experimenting with, lol.
My ongoing inexperience with Rhum Agricole lead to me to experiment with all available bar stock in my basement the other night, lol....just happened to be the simple ol' sprite that tickled my fancy. I tried a few other soda's (egad) but the sprite gave it that more refreshing taste I was after.

Indeed, this is a great time in life. As I ease into my early 40's now, and have in the past 4 years made a couple of babies , I find myself going out less and entertaining/and experimenting indoors.
The other night I bbq'd steaks for the lads, salmon for the ladies (at -30C outside, bahh) while sipping rum cocktails. Is that not what life is all about -lol

Cheers!

Here's an experience for both of you:

Rhum Saint James Hors D' Age

Very good as a sipper though in small amounts. It makes quite the statement!

The Extra Old is no slouch, either.
