While reflecting the know-how of the Trois Rivières distillery, the old VSOP Réserve Spéciale rum is distinguished by its unique character, the result of a balanced blend.
The cuvée has spent more than five years in French oak barrels. The result is a beautiful expression of the Trois Rivières cellar, the terroir and the tropical climate of Martinique.
To be drunk dry, on the rocks or in cocktails, this fairly easy-to-access rum will allow lovers of English and Spanish style rums to get a foot in the world of agricoles.
Laurent's tasting note
The straw yellow colour of the old Trois Rivières VSOP Réserve Spéciale rum is enhanced by a golden hue.
On the nose, nothing aggressive. The combination of sweet spices (and even gingerbread), dried fruits (almonds and walnuts) and cane juice promise a certain greediness in the mouth.
The palate of the VSOP Réserve Spéciale rum is soft, without being sweet, and confirms the roundness of the nose. The aromas tend towards dried fruits, honey and spices.
The finish is long for a VSOP. Once again, the spices and honey stand out, but the woodiness is pronounced without being too present.
"What's very interesting about this rum is its duality: a pure strain agricole - its aromas don't deceive - without being too dry, which offers a choice gateway to that world of pure cane juice!"
There is no opinion yet.
