TropicDrinkBoy, it certainly confises me as well. Mostly because I have seen domestic bottles of both The St James Extra Old and the Hors d'Age with the "Rhum Vieux" moniker on the label. As rhum vieux just means "old rum", that is certainly an accurate description of both of those US-distributed products. The confusion arises when "Rhum Vieux" is applied without further description on the Martinique-distributed product and without getting a bottle and doing a side-by-side-by-side comparison I'm just guessing. But based on bits of information from a few websites (including the St James site), I think the Martinique label is equivalent to our Extra Old and not the Hors D'Age.
Of course I could be totally wrong.
