La Mauny 1749 Agricole Rum (700ml)
$69. 99 Bottle
You could consider Agricoles as the Caribbean’s equivalent to Bordeaux, not only because they taste more "European", but because Rum Agricole is the only rum to be governed by an AOC (Appellation d’Origine Controllee, the French official label of origin). Just as with French wine and food, this AOC dictates how the spirit can be made, including the mandate to harvest sugar cane only in the dry season, the prevention of burning of the cane fields and a requirement to press sugar cane into cane juice within three days of harvest. Martinique is considered the spiritual home of the style, however other islands, such as Guadeloupe also offer outstanding Agricoles. This expression from the La Mauny Company (established in 1749) was matured in oak for 18 months. No tasting notes available.
