Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Marketed in the USA under Trois Rivieres Special Reserve (TRSR), this aged agricole has a soft, refined and balanced flavor between the inherent grassy notes of agricole, and the mellow oak aging. It's a delight to sip straight, as well as mix in cocktails for a 'ti punch vieux.
Very strange taste, smell like I don't know, skin, tobbaco. Interesting...weird. Each person shall try. Ron is dry and sharp.
I just have to say that Agricole is not at all my favourite type of rum. I just can't enjoy them, but if you like em you should definitely try this one, because it's the best one I've tasted so far, it is smooth and pleasant. It's just not my type.
Smell and palate is citrus and sugar cane. It's great for a warm evening in the summer because of the refreshing taste.
Wasn't sure on this rum, but thought I would give it a go. Turns out its pretty good. Got a heavy dose of that christmas cake/dried fruit on the nose, with a long and smooth finish.
The only real problem with this one is, there are other drinks that have a similar level of character and body for a fair penny less. I would say that this one is comparable with El Dorado 12yr, but would likely choose El Dorado 12 year over this just because, well, its cheaper.
Chutna trochu jako slama. Nevyrazna chut. Neprilis dobry.
Visited the Trois Rivieres distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Open tasting bar. Trois Rivieres VSOP was priced at EUR 40 per bottle at the distillery. Nice and sturdy box surrounding a basic bottle and label design. Light golden color. Traditional very dry Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with plenty of grass and oak to your nose and palate. Quite a kick at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can add 2 points to the score.
It s clearly what we call in french a rhum Agricole, with a taste that is too strong and ressembles whisky a lot. Have too say that i dont fancy those rhums so this was quite a dissapointment for me.
Aroma after brown sugar. Taste is dominated but wooden casks reminding bourbon with sweet aftertaste.
Fine, balanced blend, tobbaco light taste with gingerbread and dried fruits. Strong finish.
Smell was not bad, but taste is burning and harsh. Aftertaste not very long with ground tones.
Trois Rivières Plantation Rhum is een eeuwenoude rum distilleerderij die een wezenlijk deel uitmaakt van het erfgoed van Martinique. De iconische naam van de plantage komt van de drie rivieren die grenzen aan het gebied: Bois d’Inde, Oman en Saint Pierre. De plantage van Trois Rivières is een terrein van meer dan 1700 hectare met uitzicht op de zee, in het zonnigste, zuidelijkste deel van het eiland. Het suikerriet groet in de kleibodems die rotsachtig en rijk aan magnesium zijn, terwijl de wortels baden in zeewater. Dankzij productie methodes uit de 18e eeuw en zijn omgeving hebben de Trois Rivières rums hun verfijnde smaak te danken.
De VSOP Reserve Speciale is een circa 6 jaar oude en fruitige Rhum Agricole gebotteld op 40%.
Un rhum assez sympathique à déguster, il n'est pas exceptionnel mais se laisse boire!
Another that reinforced we are not rhum agricole fans.
Very pale appearance, disappointed really not a great deal going on even when held in the mouth for a while. A little harsh on the afterburn. I did detect a hint of vanilla but that's about it. Not great I was really up for a challenge with this but she let me down.
Sympa mais sans plus. Reste un très bon rhum agricole
A little bit alcohoolic, good persistance, nice bouquet, fine notes but too much molases in aftertaste.
Primul agricol placut. Arome fine, aftertaste subtil suficient de persistent.
Light color, a bit flat in taste but not bad at all. At first it is even harsh and smokey. The aftertaste should be richer and longer lasting, but hey.. you should still try it!
The first half of the glas was very good but the 2nd half was quite "difficult" to drink ... it is a good one but without a cigarr for myself it s a bit too simple.
It got a great taste of red fruit and a little bit of rabac or chocolate... i dont really know ... :)
Nez : Subtils parfums de fruits frais, de tabac blond et de pain d'épices.
Bouche : Saveurs aux notes de miel, de fruits secs et d'épices.
Blind tasted along with Dillon VSOP. Funkier nose and less aromatic but more pleasant mouth with a true traditional aged rhum. Not sweet but complex style. Quite nice !
Great one if you like typical rums from Martinique. To be enjoyed straight or on ice.. Excellent after-dinner drink with good aromas and taste.
