JM Rhum Agricole Fumée Volcanique 49% 700ml

JM Fumée volcanique is an agricultural rum from the “l'Atelier des Rhums” series, dedicated to mixology and cocktails . This initiative from the JM house aims to develop advanced aromatic profiles, by working on the barrels. It is Karine Lassalle, cellar master of JM, and Joseph Akhavan (founder of the bar le Mabel in Paris) who are at the origin.

The name of this rum refers to the location of the distillery, at the foot of Mount Pelée in Martinique. To add flavour to this tribute, we chose very toasted bourbon casks. The heating applied to American oak is called "alligator". The wood thus burnt forms beautiful black scales.

After 12 to 14 months of aging, the rum, therefore, develops smoky notes. They blend harmoniously with the vegetal and fruity notes of agricultural rum.

 

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.
