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.
Maybe it's my early career in rum tasting that is the problem here, but this I only found OK. I did not enjoy the taste, even though the obvious burned sugar and caramel comes through. Taste is decent, but underwhelming and ethanoly.
We managed to find this in a tiny corner stone near the south of the main island. The producer confirmed that they do not prepare this type of rum anymore. It’s a lot more characteristic than the other variants.
Minimal everything on this one. Nose is muted and the taste is more alcohol than flavor, even at 40% ABV.
Overall an easy rum. Aroma gives away the light and somewhat faint tastes. Finishes short and light. Little oak, little sugar, over all dry.
