Default AOC and what it means

It seems that Ed may have sources of information to which we are not all privy. The good Capn's posts with respect to the origin of Rhum Barbancourt have consistently ignored that possibility.

The agreement and AOC designation in Martinique seems more an attempt to ensure that the particular qualities of Martinique Rhum Agricole are preserved and not swept aside by profit seeking or misguided modernization efforts. In short, it seems intended to maintain diversity and to avoid loss of quality or character.
