Default Riviere du mat grand reserve?

I have seen this rum on european sellers sites as well as a royal blend. I like the looks of the bottle (squat and clear) and the rum is a very dark color (possibly molasses based?). I don't know much about it, and the sites are all in French, or German, neither of which I speak. Is this a Agricole? I refer to the experts on this one.

Sipping a Zacapa 23 neat.

Default Riviere du mat grande reserve

A blend of different spirits made of molasses ("rhum traditionnel") aged in oak "5 years minimum and almost 6 years on average".
Is all it says here:

It appears to made of molasses according to the French text but I can't say for sure. Their other rum, Opus 5, is made of juice however. One of my members reviewed it and liked it. I'm not sure how it compares to the Grande Reserve though.
