J.M. Gold displays a rich sugarcane flavor that has beautiful viscosity on the palate. The rich golden color is a simple result from the time it has been naturally aged in re-charred Bourbon barrels for a period of 12 months. Raw sugarcane and warm gingerbread flavors are softened by hints of vanilla and hazelnuts from this short time in oak. J.M Gold is a rum that demonstrates a brilliant balance of reservation of terroir with introduction of wood alchemy that works exceptionally well in cocktails.
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 Clément 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 Pelée, 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.
