Very Smooth. Rhum J.M Gold developed its light amber color from the time it spent aging in new American oak barrels.
Rhum J.M is the smallest distiller on Martinique. It carries a certain mystique and is regarded with reverence amongst Martinique residents. The current owners are fifth generation heirs of the Crassous de Medeuil, and maintain the unique character of their rhum despite having been purchased by Rhum Clement circa 2004. The estate sits away from Martinique's other distilleries on the island's northeast side. Due to the more humid climate of it’s location at the foot of (often overcast) Mount Pelee, J.M often harvests their sugar cane later than other distilleries, resulting in a unique product. Per strict AOC specifications, only fresh pressed cane juice is fermented, then distilled in one pass through a copper column still. The rich distillate is stored in stainless steel tanks for a month or more, before maturing in small new American oak casks.
