Rhum Grand Arôme Vieux
Aged 7 Years
Cognac Cask No. 167
One of 1026 Bottles
Country of Origin: Île de La Réunion
Grand Arôme is a speciality of the Savanna Distillery with an extended fermentation.
Color: Bright golden amber
Lovely and very intensive ... sweet with an exotic spiciness ... unique and hard to describe.
Quite fruity ... dates and dried figs.
Pickled ginger with soy sauce ... chestnuts and stewed hare :)
Bold and mouth filling with a mild peppery spiciness.
Then there are fruity aromas that remind me of home-made lemonade and mangos. Furthermore notes of toffee and oak.
Long and spicy with toffee. The aftertaste is dry and slightly medicinal.
