This rhum vieux agricole is column distilled and aged in American oak barrels with two degrees of toasting - intense and extreme. Named "Terroir Volcanique" due to the character imparted from the environment of Mount Pelee.

Clear, deep golden amber.
Vanilla, new leather, honey, toasty oak, prunes and blackened fruit cake with faint floral aromas.
Grassy agricole notes sit with tropical fruit - particularly passion fruit, rounded with vanilla and toasty oak, and enlivened with nutmeg and cinnamon spice.
More leathery woody notes with lingering nutmeg and cinnamon spice.
Tropical fruit, grassy agricole and elegant spicy oak.
