43% abv agricole from charred sugar canes, only red cane variety used.
"To develop “Cannes Brûlées”, Trois Rivières got its inspiration from an ancient, traditional method, burning the sugarcanes before harvesting.
Originally the sugarcane cutters used this procedure to eliminate the sharp-edged leaves from the stalks and get rid of the snakes before cutting.
The natural wax that surrounds the canes protects the content and quality of their sugar from the flames. As the fire burns, the canes’ natural water exudes and the aromas concentrate in the juice. The sugarcanes are cut once the fire is out; they are still fuming when they are carried away to be crushed. The juice is then fermented and distilled in a Creole column. Afterwards it is watered-down to 43% A.B.V. with spring water."
Nose: very briny, leathery, smoky, bit of alcohol kick and faint citrus fruitiness.
Palate: Huge smoke and brine upfront, reminds me a lot of quality standard proof islay like talisker for example, leather and grassiness comes nicely, bit hot and spicy with nice acidic citrus notes on back palate, then some cane juice under all.
I was very excited to try this new product from one of my favorite distilleries,
Trois Rivieres after reading the product info from this new release (part of their new bartender lineup which includes 4 new rhums)
The rum is very islay whiskey like but not too much,
there is definately cane juice profile under it all, grassy citrus and fruit notes. This has easily earned its place as one of my favorite agricoles, along with Copalli white.
What Trois Rivieres has achieved here is a wonderful interesting agricole that has amazing complexity and balance for (apparently) unaged rum.
