Nose: has the humidity of old pontoons and pencil shavings. Notes of dates, ripe sugarcane and gingerbread complete this austere but interesting profile.
Taste: the boldness of pencil lead followed by notes of kumquat, mace and blond tobacco. Sugarcane makes a subtle appearance at the end.
Finish: notes of old rope, angostura bark and liquorice for the finish
The rhums of Martinique are considered among the best in the world. They are so fine and aromatic that, since 1996, they have been awarded the prestigious French "appellation d'origine contrôlée", a designation previously reserved only for France’s finest cheese and wines: Trois Rivières is a jewel of agricole rhums.
