Review: Rhum J.M. V.O

Posted by Arctic Wolf on January 8, 2021

Rhum J.M. is located in the village of Macouba, in the northern part of Martinique. The facility sits at the base of iconic volcano Mt. Pelée.  The company produces AOC Rhum Agricole from estate-grown sugarcane, and is said to be the first recorded distillery to produce Rhum Agricole.

The word “rhum” is the French spelling for our English word “rum”. However, the differences between Rhum and Rum are often much deeper than just a twist in spelling. This is because the traditions of making rhum in the French West Indies differs from the traditions of rum production in the rest of the Caribbean. The major difference in the production of Agricole Rum is that it is distilled from fermented sugar cane juice rather than fermented molasses. As well Rhum Agricole is usually single distilled to 70 per cent abv., and then brought to bottling proof after it is aged.

Here is a link to my first Agricole Rhum review of 2021:

Review: Rhum J.M.  V.O

“… Richer and more developed than I would expect from a 3 Year Old Spirit with enticing maple and caramel combined with with leathery oak, vanilla and almond. Hints of cinnamon and touches of wood sap complete the nose ….”

Please enjoy my review.

Chimo!
