After 8 years aging in the great tradition of aged HSE rhum, this 2005 vintage has spent an additional 1 year maturing in Château La Tour Blanche.“The expressive bouquet delicately projects acacia honey and passion fruit notes. A few seconds of aeration awakens the scent of confit apricot and fig enhanced by a hint of gingerbread. The flavour has a captivating roundness and sublime sweet notes of dried fruit and Muscat before aromatic orange peel rounds it off beautifully. An extraordinary experience that lovers of unique products will adore.”

Habitation SAINT-ETIENNE was one of the main Martinique's sugar factories during the 19th century. Converted as other sugar factories into a rhum agricole distillery at the end of the 19th century, its distillery activities were ended in 1988. Rum is since distilled at the Simon distillery not far from the François village. Blending, maturing and barrel ageing activities are still conducted at Habitation Saint-Etienne domain. 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. Habitation St Etienne is famous for its Strong Bourbon cask finish but for unusual cask finish in Islay, Pedro Jiménez, Oloroso, Sauternes
