Traditional column still rum from Savanna.
First flavors in the nose are the intensive dry fruits, then caramel, cocoa, orange, wood and earth.
The initial taste is a little bit bitter, I'm not sure if 12y would be better for this rum. I mean it's balanced and smooth, but the tanins are a little bit too intensive.
The taste is typical Reunion with dry fruits and grains. It's intensive and balanced with great aftertaste. I love leather in combination with firmint.
Becauso of the too long aging I would rate it a 9. Otherwise it would be 10.

Nose: dry fruits ***, tobacco, caramel *, grains **, cocoa *, plants, oak/orange, wet cask with earth (cognac cask)
Initial taste: dry fruits, grains, wood with tanins, orange (typical for cognack finish)
Middle taste: grains (buckwheat, typical Reunion not), rye, burned sugar, dry fruit
Finish: buckwheat, tanins, spice, wood, earth, tanins
Aftertaste: citrus, leather, firmint (oh, yes I like this Reunion aftertaste)
