Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Had only a sample so this is just a first impression, but I don’t think I will come back to it.
It’s a quite young distillery. The company was formed 2002 and started the export in small scales 2013 at first.
They use sugar cane from the farmers on the island. The sugar cane is crushed to get the cane juice which is distilled in both column and pot stills, but they don’t call it Agricole cause they say their methods is different from how they do it in the French Antilles. The aging is done in various previously used American oak barrels for 8 years whereafter it’s blended. There’s also some unconfirmed data that they also use rum not produced on the island in the blend.
I think that the best thing about this rum is the aroma which is very nice, in the mouth it is then quite bland but it’s easy to drink.
Recognizeable aromas and flavors is vanilla, marmalade, oak and notes of spices.
Picture: My emptied sample.
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.
Decent rum. The nose has some grassiness notes with some oakiness. The taste is dry with similar notes and vanilla. Minimal burn on the finish. Overall pretty solid. I wouldn’t hesitate too much to drink this neat on a weekend night with a good cigar.
I am not a big fan of the lighter rums. This one was OK. Not a lot of flavor but the flavor that did exist was alright. Sweetness was pretty balanced.
- vůně velmi příjemná, jemná, vanilka, skořice, dřevo a med
- chuť jemná, částečně nasládlá, kopíruje vůní
Velmi příjemný 👍, prodávat se do max 30 Eur, stál by za nákup
