Exciting News..my little Rummies! Not great for Tiki drinks, but heady and deep rhum from Martinique.
Rhum Clement, made from pure sugar cane in Martinique, has arrived in the US with three rums from its portfolio: Rhum Clement Premiere Canne, made from seven varieties of sugar cane; Rhum Clement VSOP, which spends one year in a new French Cognac barrel and three years in a re-charred Bourbon barrel; and Rhum Clement Liqueur Creole Shrubb, an infusion of orange peels and traditional Creole spices into pure cane syrup blended with white rum. For more information contact Ana Jovancicevic at 212-688-8200.
Just finished a bottle of Havana Club Anejo 3 Anos, which was excellantly suited for many rum cocktails!

Oh, I don't know about that. I might just try this in a Mai Tai. My favorite Martinique rum right now is Kaniche which is also aged in French cognac barrels - although, I'm not sure if it is being produced anymore. But this rum makes an excellent Mai Tai and .... I know where three bottles are buried... the problem is that.. well, there's this curse...

Rhum Clément is a really good rum, by itself or as a cocktail part, that's for sure. I like to use that on Mai Tais, that really gives an excellent flavor.
