TROIS RIVIERES 2006 Private Vintage

Rum, France / Martinique 70cl Ref: 4479

Aged in a Limousin oak barrel and bottled at its natural strength, this version is particularly redolent, at every stage of tasting, of a plant much appreciated for its head and heart: the artichoke. Full of character, it also reveals a spicy, floral, exotic nature. A touch of sea air arrives at the end of the palate, bringing a pleasant freshness.

Produced at the Trois Rivières Plantation, this 2006 vintage is delightfully original. The product of a single barrel, it initially offers tremendous softness. This is followed by a surprising smoothness, and then a cocktail of primary aromas. Profile: heady. Spicy, hot. Exotic (banana, pineapple) and floral (peonies, gardenias). Lime blossom and notes of artichoke heart. Cocoa powder. Tiger balm.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : old gold with glints of copper.
  • Nose : heady, powerful. The hot, spicy start is particularly invigorating. This heat then develops more exotic (banana, pineapple) and floral notes (peony, gardenia). Lime blossom and notes of artichoke heart underscore its silky, exuberant character.
  • Palate : creamy, rich. Initially offers delicious great chunks of artichoke heart. The taste-buds are then assailed with delicate flavours of cocoa powder and fresh ginger. Increasingly spicy (black pepper, nutmeg, cloves) it even becomes slightly medicinal (balm, ricin).
  • Overall : long, firm. The tannins gently tighten the palate. Roots (ginseng, ginger) add a pleasant earthy dimension. Simultaneously ethereal, it rises to the top of the pine trees to breathe the salty air with empyreumatic and balsamic scents. The retro-olfactation is exotic (guava) and the empty glass returns to an intense aroma of artichoke heart.
The brand

The brand

Founded in around 1660, the Trois Rivières plantation is one of the oldest plantations in Martinique. Located in the south of the island, the Moulin is the original distillation site of the famous Trois Rivières rums. Inactive today, the site lives on in the form of a not-to-be-missed tourist attraction. The joint work of the two experts Daniel Baudin, a maître de chai since 1995, and Christian Vergier, the famous oenologist, maturation is carried out in new French oak, ex-cognac casks and ex-bourbon casks. Bottled in Martinique, all the Trois Rivières rums are filtered at room temperature and are bottled without the addition of caramel.
