Rhum Chauvet

Rhum Chauvet "Special Cocktail" white rum, that's a new one on me. The other Chauvet rums I've seen aren't rhum agricole though they claim to be from Martinique. From what I've seen these are bottled in France from unknown origins. A lot of molasses-based rum is shipped to France and bottled in liqueurs and other things.

I hope you aren't disappointed but let us know.

I haven't seen Chauvet claim to be AOC before, and that brand isn't sold in Martinique, so it seems suspicious. Is this bottled at 50% abv.? I'll have to find this one. There will be a number of new rhums claiming to be from Martinique in the coming months.

bottle bears the designation, "Martinique Appellation d'Origine" AND the words, "PRODUCT OF FRANCE"...which contributes to a lot of my confusion.

Martinique is a department of France, as is Guadeloupe. So technically, the label is correct, but since Chauvet is bottled in France it says "Product of France" instead of "Product of Martinique, French West Indies."

Happy sipping, but don't mix it with Coke.
