BM Distillery Guadeloupe 2014 Transcontinental Rum Line is a limited-edition rum from the BM Distillery in Guadeloupe, bottled by La Maison du Whisky for the Transcontinental Rum Line range. The rum is made from molasses, unlike the sugarcane juice rum that prevails in Guadeloupe. It was distilled in 2014 and matured for almost 3 years in the tropics in ex-bourbon barrels. It was then finished for a couple of months in Europe, and bottled in 2017 at 43%. BM Distillery Guadeloupe 2014 Transcontinental Rum Line is a young, soft and fruity rum. On the nose, expect sweet aromas of delicate fruit, pineapple, plum, liquorice, coconut milk, orange peel, and a pinch of black pepper. These fruity notes develop on the palate with flavours of red apple, pear, caramel, and a touch of salt. BM, or Bonne Mère, is a little-known distillery on the French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. It is located in the commune of Sainte-Rose, on the north-western coast of the island. Bonne Mère operated as a sugar factory between 1863 and 1973. It has since been converted into a modern distillery producing almost exclusively ethanol. And once in a blue moon, rum.
