Review: Depaz Blue Cane Rhum Agricole

depaz rhum agricole Review: Depaz Blue Cane Rhum AgricoleThat extra H can only mean one thing: Martinique rum, or rhum, as the locals like to call it.

Depaz is arguably the biggest name in rhum agricole, with Depaz Blue Cane a staple even on supermarket shelves.

The aroma is quite pungent, unmistakably sugar cane with a bit of cachaca-like funk to it. The flavor is smoother than the nose would indicate, like a lime-inflected white rum (though Depaz is aged for a time in oak barrels) that also offers some notes of charred wood.

Depaz is better cold, but even the company markets it as a “cocktail rum,” designed primarily for blending. (Virtually every recipe the company offers includes Depaz Cane Syrup in it as a sweetener — I’d review it too, but the cap of my sample came loose in shipping… and I assure there’s no mess quite like a fifth of pure sugar syrup turned into a hardened, crystalline mess!)
