Tasting Notes: Very Smooth Bally’s 7 year old rhum shows beautiful clarity and reddish gold mahogany color. Due to prolonged aging in oak beyond the time most agricole rhums are bottled, Pyramide delivers complex aromas and a greater depth of character. The rhum is highly aromatic and spicy sweet on the nose. Caramelized sugar cane, oak, and allspice are primary, with lesser amounts of butterscotch, clove, vanilla, fresh tobacco, and just the right amount of alcohol to lightly vaporize the scents out of your snifter. You can literally smell the musty age. Initial tasting reveals more complex character, new flavors and a light creamy texture that is at once pleasant and uncommon among agricole rhums, with sweet oak, tobacco, vanilla and wood bark to compound interest. A medium weight body leads transitions to sweet, lingers briefly, then ultimately overlaid with an inviting semi-dry finish.

J. Bally Rum was one of the first distilleries in La Martinique to produce "Rum Agricole" from pure cane sugar and be granted "A.O.C" status (Appellation dâOrigine ControllÃ©e). The AOC Rhum Agricole de la Martinique restricts production to the short best season for the cane to pack aromas, compels that all and only the fresh juice of the cane be used, contrary to 95% of the world rums using the left-overs (Molasses, stalks) of the sugar refining industry. Agricole Rum belongs to the world of cognac or Armagnac, whenever Traditional Rum (also known as Industrial) is in the grappa / pomace world. Inspired by traditional, established production methods for cognac and other fine spirits, the founder of the company, Jacques Bally, had the brain wave as long ago as 1917 to age his rums in oak casks. This slow aging in wood gives them a lovely mahogany colour and fine incomparable aromas which time alone can bring. It is the excellence of his old rums and very early their mention of age, which helped establish the reputation of J.Bally Rums the world over. The originality of the pyramid shaped bottle is the cherry on the cake.
