A wonderful golden rum from Rhum J.M. Here at Fine Drams we can’t get enough of what they produce: a consistently high quality Rhum Agricole. They control the entire process of distillation, only using cane grown on their estate on Mount Pelée, a semi-active volcano in Martinique. This must surely mean they are the only distillery sitting on a volcano! Rhum Argicole is a delicate, grassy and aromatic style, produced by fermenting the juice of the cane, as opposed to molasses or Demerara, which are the industry standards. This rum has been aged for a year in re-charred Bourbon casks. This gives the rum both its golden flavour and sweet vanilla notes. On the nose this rum offers up aromas of earth, fruit and nuts. The palate is grassy and buttery with wonderful juicy tropical fruit notes. A little soft vanilla oak comes in after a while. The finish is short and sweet, with crunchy nut flavours lasting. A lovely little daily drinker, than shines in Daiquiris.
