by Rhum JM$0.00
Gold: Very Smooth. Rhum J.M Gold developed its light amber color from the time it spent aging in new American oak barrels. On the nose, aromas of fresh cut cane with a hint of light sweet vanilla is discerned. As the rhum opens up some spiciness and mild alcohol arrives. Initial taste delivers warmth up front with a spicy edginess and flavors of pepper, allspice, vanilla, and anise. Possessing a medium to light body J.M VSOP finishes long, dry, and warm with hints of unsweetened cocoa, a slight residual sweet cane flavor and fading with spices.
VSOP: The glorious J.M V.S.O.P. is created by aging rhum 3 years in re-charred Bourbon barrels and finishing the rhum an additional year in lightly toasted new American oak barrels and finally reduced to 43 % ABV with pure volcanic spring water from Habitation Bellevue to create an extraordinary aged rhum that retains qualities of the natural terroir and sugarcane of Habitation Bellevue. Expect to find nougaty richness with cinnamon and clove aromas, flavors of spiced butter and lemony toffee, which leads into a smooth and subtle finish.
XO: Aged 100% in re-charred Bourbon barrels, the elegant copper tone precedes a gorgeous rhum on the palate. It has a generous bouquet of toasted nut, lemon and sage on the nose, which compliments the chewy sweet cake as well as the mango and passion fruit flavors. The experience is accented by white pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg.
