Visited the Trois Rivieres distillery while vacationing in Martinique. Distillery tours were closed for the season but full open tasting bar was offered. Blanc 55 was priced at EUR 9 per bottle at the distillery. Pretty decent bottle and label design. Traditional very dry Rhum Agricole flavors complemented with plenty of grass and floral notes to your nose and palate. Strong burn at the end. Rhum Agricole lovers can add 2 points to the score.
N- Puffy mixes of various leaves, sugarcane, pandan, screwpine, even some basil and parsley, broad green spirits hue that resembling fermented rice/sorghum chinese wine. Dusty cereal husk, like in the operating milling room, dusty, grounded white pepper and malt draff. Sun-dry fresh laundry with eucalyptus heats at the tails. Despite raw, the aroma does evolves interestingly. (17/25)
P-Spicy chili oil, cereal husk again with sweet grilled marshmallow, sour-sweet tangy new spirits, hefty bites of raw strength. (15/25)
F- Short-medium, mouthwatering spicy with return of sorghum/rice wine, menthol, mint and earthy. (17/25)
Balanced:- Raw and very 'garden green', close to nature, and not as sulphury as anticipated. Surely an idea spirits to toss in for a tasty mojito. (17/25)
Weighted Rate:- 66pt
