I don't look for these things but there are more out there than would like to be mentioned on this site. When I see something as blatant as this I mention it. French blenders are the most arrogant but then that product probably isn't being sold in the US. There are others that are being sold in the US that blatantly violate the AOC regulations. I'm not the rum police, but this site is widely read by people who do work with the AOC and other agencies who are dedicated to fair and honest marketing.

Unfortunately, products like this that aren't sold in France are harder for the French authorities to sort out, even though the bottler is in France.

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