Batiste Rhum Agricole 750ml

SKU #1052731

Just as its growing region in France defines Champagne, rhum agricole is made exclusively on the islands of the French West Indies. Batiste Rhum Agricole Blanc is made in small batches with the freshly pressed juice of sugar cane that they grow themselves on Marie-Gallante, a tiny coral island known for its cane. Made from sustainably grown, hand-cut sugar cane, with minimal processing to be less harmful to the earth and your body, itís no wonder Batiste Rhum Agricole Blanc is the best-tasting rhum you'll ever drink. The producer's commitment to the health of the planet is just as evolved. Their cane is organically grown without chemicals on a Caribbean island far from industrial contaminants and pollutants. Their mill and distillery are powered by wind and solar energy. Batiste has a bright, clean character that defines it and makes its presence in cocktails noticed. Due to its earthy nose and cane-redolent palate, it mixes exceptionally well with many ingredients.

The latest release of this spectacular rum is the best yet. It still has all the power and complexity that characterizes Rhum Agricole (a rum tradition and style distinctive of the French West Indies) but in the latest release they've used a special vacuum still (the kind used in Sake production) and the results are astounding. This rum initially impressed me with its polish, vibrancy, and smooth mouthfeel, but now with amplified aromatics and layers of flavor on the palate it is not only one very distinctive rum, but mouth-wateringly delicious too. Lychee nut and rich tropical fruits leap out in the nose, with subtle hints of cane grass and flowering herbs. The palate fans out like a peacock's tail, intense yet never overwhelming as it winds down towards a smooth, glassy finish. The superiority of Batiste's sustainable grown, hand-cut, organic cane and natural processing methods is evident in the fine quality of this Agricole. Sip neat, on the rocks, or in a classic Tií Punch: 2 oz. Rhum Agricole, squeeze of half a lime, cane syrup to taste, 1-2 ice cubes (optional).Combine and serve in an old-fashioned glass or tumbler garnished with a lime twist.
