Product Notes:
45% alcohol, made with a blend of four and five year old rhums, has a coppery amber color with decided caramel, chocolate and spice notes on the nose, with Martinique spices (cinnamon and nutmeg) and caramel on the palate, with an intense buttery, creamy finish. This aged rhum is an excellent sipping rhum.
Rhum J.M Agricole Blanc is 50% abv. / 100 proof white rum agricole from Martinique in the French West Indies and an Applelation d'Origine Controlle Martinique rum. Agricole comes from the term agriculture, meaning it is made not from molasses that is fermented and distilled, but from fresh squeezed sugar cane juice that is fermented into sugar cane wine called vesou and then distilled. This makes a much dryer style of rum similar to a fine brandy. This white rum is aged for a period of time to smooth it out, but not to pick up excess color or flavor and is crystal clear.

About Estate:
Rhum J.M., an exqusite rum distilled on the smallest estate on Martinique, is located in the northeast in Macouba, where the sugar cane grows on 28-degree vertical slopes in rich volcanic soil at the foot of Mount Pelée. Due to its unique location with sea breezes, rainforest, an intense microclimate, and high cloud cover, Rhum J.M. cuts their sugar later than other distilleries. While most distilleries cut the cane at the end of February or early March, Rhum J.M. does not cut their cane until late March or early April, and combined with the environmental factors imparts a unique flavor to the rhum.
Rhum J.M. has an interesting history beginning in 1790 when Antoine Leroux-Préville purchased Father Labat's estate and sugar refinery and named it Fonds-Préville. In 1845, his daughters sold the property to Jean-Marie Martin, who transformed the sugar refinery into a distillery and branded the rhum barrels with his initials, J.M. In 1914, Gustave Crassons de Médeuil purchased Fonds-Préville from his brother Ernest, to add to his own estate, Bellevue. Today the Crassons de Médeuil heirs still cultivate the sugar cane to create the exceptional line of Rhum J.M., taking such pride in ownership that they have the family crest on the bottles.
