Rhum Agricole VSOP, Rhum JM

In the late 17th century, Pére Labat, a Jesuit priest credited with proliferating sugar cultivation in the French West Indies, was the parish priest of Macouba while operating a sugar refinery at his house on the Roche River, where Rhum J.M is produced today. Antoine Leroux-Préville purchased the estate in 1790. In 1845, Antoine Leroux-Préville’s daughters sold the property to Jean-Marie (J.M) Martin, a merchant from Saint-Pierre. Jean-Marie Martin recognized the superior quality of the sugarcane he found and decided to shift the cultivation practices away from producing huge quantities of sugar and focus on producing the finest quality rhum agricole. The rich sugarcane flavors in Rhum J.M are a result of the unique volcanic soil, tropical humidity, tremendous ventilation from the steady sea breeze onto the mountain side, and the excellent drainage on the sloping sugarcane fields.

Tasting Notes

Rhum J.M V.S.O.P. is created by aging rhum a total of 4 years: the first being new American oak and then finished the last 3 years in bourbon barrels. The rhum is finally reduced to 43 % ABV with pure volcanic spring water. This extraordinary aged rhum retains qualities of the natural terroir and sugarcane of Habitation Bellevue. Expect to find nougaty richness with flavors of cinnamon, clove, spiced butter and lemony toffee.
