1994 Rhum JM Vieux Agricole Martinique 750ml

SKU #1061663

From one of my favorite agricole rhum producers, the little Rhum JM on Martinique. Produced exclusively from fresh cane juice grown right on the grounds of this incredibly picturesque estate, Rhum JM has operated continuously since 1845. Their exacting standards put them in the top tier of spirits producers worldwide. The only distillery in Martinique to produce rhum exclusively from cane grown right at the domain also has a fresh spring right on the property, so everything but the barrels comes right from the estate. Rhum JM is unique in that they char their barrels with oak chips and rhum before adding the fresh spirits for aging. Aged rhum sits for a minimum of 10 years. In those 10 years 50% of the liquid by volume and at least 10 degrees of alcohol evaporate due to the tropical climate. This bottle is the finest I've had from JM. Ethereal and boisterous, the JM shows more depth than many cognac and/or whisky out there. Stylistically it falls somewhere in between those two categories. The fresh cane creates a much less sweet style than many rhum drinkers are used to. Herbaceous, citrus, floral, but not overpowering, it is an exquisite experience. Although it's expensive, 1994 JM easily beats many competitors at similar price range in all other categories. If you're ever gonna jump on the Rhum wagon, this is a great place to start.
