Easily consumable in a bind
40% abv no age statement, aged in oak "casks" says the label, i thought the standard was oak tanks for ambres but this rhum might use real casks.
Nose: light, still quite strongly grassy and citrus forward, nicely fruity too, very light oakiness, more mellow than standard blanc
Taste: Mellow, grassy, lots of citrus and tannins, oakiness is nicely more pronounced in taste, fruitiness goes to more berry and grape like direction, also nice vanillin taste in the end
Finish: Fruity, grassy, bit oaky and lightly nutty.
I havent yet tasted much of the aged agricoles but this is very aproachable and very decent for lightly aged agricole.
The smell, the taste, the colour all reminds me of a blended whiskey. Strong agricole and wood flavour with a bit of sweetness, but finishes smooth. Not bad of that is what you're after, but this is RumRatings.com not WhiskeyRatings.com
exceptionally citrusy and floral nose..... almost off putting, like it vaguely reminds me of sprite and dish soap? i prefer molasses rum as opposed to agricole, but other than the nose. this is really good. very clean finish, almost dry. very green nutty taste. i really liked this bottle.
Rhum agricole élevé sous bois. 40% ABV. Aged 18 months in oak. Gentle nose. Fruitier and less briny than the blanc. Some cherry.
I'm not big on ESBs, and this is a good example why.
Trois Rivieres Ambre is meant for the Rhum Agricole fanboys. It does not get my points. Very cheap bottle and label design. Very strong floral and alcohol notes to both nose and palate. Super dry finish.
Another great product from the Trois Rivieres line. Perfect for a softer 'ti-punch or as an ingredient in many tiki cocktails.
