Question Rhum JM vs Depaz Blue Cane

Hello All,

I'm a new member to this forum but long time rum lover living in BC, Canada. I've reviewed the Ministry of Rum before when seeking answers or reviews about rum however this is the first time I've joined the forum. So once again I'm turning to the forum because I need some advice/opinion re the above rhums.

I'm going to the US (Arkansas) in a couple of months and would like to purchase rhum agricole but only have two choices: Rhum JM Eleve Sous Bois or Depaz Blue cane rhum. The choices are limited due to the fact that the majority of online liquor stores will not ship to Arkansas. One liquor store will according to their site but only have Rhum JM and Depaz Blue Cane.

Any thoughts or suggestions???

I would buy them both if you like rhum agricole. The Depaz Blue Cane is very unique in flavor and nose, you may find it actually has a hint of a Tequila in the fragrance. The JM is nutty and floral, not as grassy as a white rhum agricole. Both make great Ti Punches.

Hi Hank, thanks for the advice. Obviously you have tried them both.

I like rhum agricole as I have purchased some before, namely La Mauny and Trois Riviere from www.rhumdemartinque.com but the cost of getting it to Canada is prohibitive.

As for Depaz Blue Cane....that carries the AOC label and is distilled and bottled in Martinique??

Of those 2, I prefer the Rhum JM Eleve Sous Bois. Maybe that's because its nutty taste is closer to my personality, being a mad scientist.

Its made at the Depaz rhum estate on Martinique and as far as i know..(correct me here someone if i`m wrong) all the rums marked with the AOC are distilled and bottled in Martinique.

I would get both of them if possible.

Default Rhum JM vs Depaz Blue Cane

Thanks for all the input...I'll get a couple of each to last a bit.

I was wondering about the AOC on Depaz as I noticed the bottles sold in the US do not have it clearly displayed whereas the bottles sold in Martinique have it prominently displayed.

Tiare, I've read some of your other posts and I noticed that you live in Europe. I've found Europe, especially Germany, to be a great source for rum. Its just so expensive to get it to Canada. Here are some sites that might interest you:

Thanks for the links!
Yes there are a great source of rums in Germany as well as in Italy, the only problem is the high shipping cost.........
From Germany its usually 20 euro for 1-6 bottles and from Italy about 12 euro per bottle.I donґt buy much in my own country though due to the extremely poor selection and high prices.

I can only assume that they change the Depaz label for the U.S. market.
I does say distilled and bottled at Depaz.

Ed`s thread in this same section "What you should know about RHUM AGRICOLE" explains about the AOC label.
