Is this rum made from fresh sugar cane juice and distilled to about 72% abv or is it possible that the brand name is simply agricole?

As I have posted elsewhere, rum blenders and bottlers can do pretty much what they want to outside the French islands where rhum agricole can only be made from fresh sugar cane juice and distilled to about 72%abv.

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