Tasty, but not quite great
Trois Frères Distillery
La Plaine St. André, Mahé
Aged 8 Years
Country of origin: Seychelles
Color: Old Gold
Faint and sweet with aromas of raisins and caramel. Furthermore there are notes of sandalwood and cider vinegar.
Mild, light and almost tasteless. With quite some efforts I manage to taste toffee, oak and vanilla. Furthermore this rum is a little spicy (white pepper, jalapeños).
Medium long, dry and slightly spicy.
I love to remember my vacation on the Seychelles ... but this rum leaves a lot to be desired. At least it appears that there was not much sugar added.
Very absent nose with, after what seems hours of sniffing, some light fruits and floral notes but very little that suggests (as the website states) 8 years of oak aging. There is a little oak on the palate accompanied by the same fruits and flowers of the aroma. Not sure if this one is really dry as everything tastes a little bit rounded up and very easy.
Easy drinking untill you take its pricetag into consideration; all in all a rather characterless rum to please all for a premium price. Forgettable, not only afterwards but also while consuming.
I went into this one with little to no knowledge about it beforehand. That can either give you a pleasant surprise, or answer the question of, why you have never heard about the rum before.
Nose: Pepper, syrup, sugar cane, honey with a backbone of flowers
Taste: Vanilla, honey, almonds and caramel with a thin and uneventful aftertaste
Overall: This rum gives me nothing. It is fine for what it is, but it is to expensive for that to be okay. Not a good bang for your buck, but can be drunk if there is nothing else available.
So, it was a bit of wood but a lot of herbs after all. Would drink it again maybe even as a mixer because it would add some edges to a cocktail.
Un nez un peu trop plat, sentant l'alcool.
A la dégustation c'est moins marqué que ça, beaucoup de goûts différents, mais aucun dominant.
Note de vanille en fond de verre.
Pleasent suprise after dark (overspiced for me) and extra dark Takamaka rums, the 8 years old barrell ageing brings a well drinkable, french types rhum for me. Not too dry, pleasent, worth to taste and collect it.
Duften er lidt flad, men man kan fornemme duften af banan. Smager af træ og lidt vanilje. Sød. Træet er ikke negativt. Faktisk ok. (14. December 2019 i 1423)
Hard to identify other flavors besides the spices. In nose I was able to recognize fruits. Not sure I’d remember this rum after tomorrow...
