It is aged in Bourbon limousin oak barrels for 8 years and then makes a passage of several months in large barrels of the company Lecompte, producer of Calvados. A unique bouquet emerges, an intense gold color with a sweet palate and classic notes of Rhum J.M. followed by pleasant delicate notes of Normandy green apple. Complex aromas, they evolve from the classic aromas of fresh apple to the more complex aromas of apple and vanilla pies.

The distillery, founded by Jean Marie Martin (J.M) is located in the North of Martinique Island (French West Indies) and is renowned to be the most prestigious brand for aged Agricole rums. 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. Lately, and confidently they have experimented with unusual cask finish, going for casks far more complex than the usuals props for whiskies i.e. sherry, port, madeira, fortified sweet wines. They have gone for Calvados, Cognac, and Armagnac casks and longer maturations. So brilliant were the results that all was sold in few days.
