Thank you for sorting this out. I thought I'd go crosseyed trying to figure out the French search engine, which confirms what I've been told by the distillers that AOC rhum agricole can't be distilled to more than 75% abv though most distillers work to distill their rhum to 72% abv. in order to capture as much of the flavor of the cane as possible.

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