Trois Rivières 12 years 42°: Description and customer reviews

Trois Rivières 12 ans is a blend of several agricultural rums aged for 12 to 15 years in oak barrels that once contained bourbon, to produce a powerful, richly flavored rum.

Laurent's tasting notes

Its color is a beautiful copper with green highlights.

On the nose, a number of aromas tickle the nostrils. First of all, fruit: apple, the liveliness of red fruit, nuts and the slightly more discreet peach. Of course, the wood is there too, normal for its age. The whole is beautifully balanced.

On the palate, the influence of the cask becomes more apparent. Tobacco appears and the impression is slightly tannic. The apple resists.

The finish is long. Here too, it's the cask that takes the lead: light wood, tobacco, vanilla and that tannic impression again. This time it's the peach that comes in for the fruity presence (albeit rather discreetly). After a while, wet wood and cane make a timid appearance.

    Tasting of a 5cl sample offered with order.

    On the nose 👃🏻: this is a very rich, intense but not lively rum, which takes us on generously with spices and well-confit fruit, as well as a very greedy old wood that sets the scene. The main flavors are orange and apple, with a little more peach and even banana at times. The cane is honeyed and resolutely woody, but without excess. It's very warm on the nose, and you can feel that it's a dry profile that awaits you.

    On the palate 👅: this is indeed a very dry profile, with a very gripping attack on wood and spices, pepper, clove, nutmeg. There's no doubting its age: this is one of the old casks, and this becomes more pronounced with each passing minute; it needs time. The slightly damp woodiness develops on subsequent sips and lingers on the palate for a long time. This rum also subtly brings out the fruity notes on the nose, adding a caramelized, even tobacco note that is magnified here.

    The finish is as long as you'd expect. I have gingerbread that expresses itself well and the tannins of the wood stay with us on the palate. But also very light fruity aromas that linger in the background like an afterglow 👌

    What a treat 😍 As always, we find the DNA of Trois Rivières rums. It's a wonderful discovery of a bottle I'd never have bought given the price (I set myself limits anyway 😁 ) but thanks to this sample system it gives us access to high-quality tastings. If you can afford it, go for it! If not, Trois Rivières Triple Millésimes is an alternative to consider.
