There are wide differences in the rhums produced in Martinique, just as there are in wines produced in any region of the world. Part of the taste difference is due to the different yeasts used for fermentation. Distillation is also different depending on the skill of the distiller and the physical properties of the still. Then there is the aging and bottling process, which invokes even more differences, some of which are subtle but others, like the type of barrels used yields very different results.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
