Rhum J.M. produces their agricole at their distillery mere steps away from where the fresh sugarcane for their spirits is grown at Habitation Bellevue at the foot of Mt. Pelée in Macouba on Martinique. The juice is pressed only an hour after harvest. For this release, the rhum distilled in 1995 was aged 15 years in re-charred bourbon barrels and bottled at cask-strength.

Tasting Notes

"Demerara sugar, caramel and honey sweetness combine with strong, brewed espresso and bittersweet chocolate. Walnuts, pear, cola spices, clove and chili pepper blend with sage, rosemary and peppermint. The finish goes slightly hot, which is expected of a cask-strength rhum. Best sipped with a large ice cube to allow the rich flavors to shine. "
