They found me again. I've written for Drinks and have talked to a number of people about rhum agricole for more magazines than I can count and some of the articles have actually been published.

As for what is similar to Depaz Blue Cane Amber Rum, La Favorite Ambre is the closest you'll find to Depaz though Neisson Eleve Sous Bois has more nutty wood flavor than either of the other two. Depaz is diluted to 90 proof for the US market, the amber rhum agricole from Depaz is bottled at 100 proof on Martinique. Both La Favorite and Neisson amber rhums are bottled at 100 proof under the US and French labels and the rhums are identical for both markets, the labels had to have the word RUM added to satisfy the TTB in the freest country in the world.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
