Hello Tiare,
This is one of my favorite rhum agricoles. I have the amber, and in comparison to the white, it has a nuttier flavor, and the grassy flavors are not as pronounced. I believe it is aged about 18 months. I also have the rhum vieux, which I love also, on it's own or in a Punch Vieux. I believe the age on the vieux is 3 years plus. The amber is A great rhum, and a great choice for our beloved Ti Punch. I have not tasted or seen the 1993. This is the first I have heard of a vintage year from La Favorite. I think Ed could help you more here. I do know this; if the price was fair I would probably purchase it. La Favorite makes consistently excellent products.

What a great looking older bottle. The price would seem about right for a vintage at 45, but if it's 12, it's a steal, but once again, It would be nice to know the age of the rum. I wish I could read Italian. I could not tell if the price was 12 or 45 Euro.

Question Rhum JM vs Depaz Blue Cane

Hello All,

New member to this forum but long time rum lover living in BC, Canada. I need some advice/opinion re the above rhums. I'm going to the US in a couple of months and would like to purchase rhum agricole but only have two choices: Rhum JM Eleve Sous Bois or Depaz Blue cane rhum. Any suggestions?

Of the Depaz Rhums, I have only tried the white. Nice But I didn't think it was extraordinary. But the Rhum JM is something special.

Actually I believe there are three La Favorite rums. A Blanc/Amber and an aged dark rum. My favorite by far is the blanc and it makes a wonderful ti punch. The aged is excellent neat !!!

Yes, those are the best known 3, and they are all excellent. There is also an 8 Ans and the elusive 33. I believe you can only find those last two on the Island. There may be more I am not aware of. I think there are some vintages also.
