Another excellent single cask rum release from phenomenal producers, Rhum J.M. This distillery, built on the side of a volcano in Martinique, produces one of the highest quality of Rhum Agricole around, with this bottling being no exception. This fabulous spirit has been finished in Calvados casks, the second in this series of bottlings. The result of this finishing process is a rum of extraordinary complexity. Calvados is a type of French apple brandy, highly valued for its clarity of flavour, with the cask being sourced from the famous Lecompte brand. Here the cask lends notes of bright fruits and tartness to the sweet, vanilla-rich and fragrant Agricole, produced from the fermented juice of the sugar cane. The spirit has been aged for 10 years, which is quite a while in the heat of the Caribbean, and produces a rum of surprising complexity. This rum has been bottled at 41.1% ABV. This is a single cask rum, with only 937 bottles available worldwide, meaning that drinkers should move fast if they want to try this tipple. The rum is presented in a frosted glass bottle with a handsome presentation box.
