Since Savanna Herr I wanted to try another rum from Re Union. This is more a classic style, not a funky stuff.
The smell is like you stick your nose in a sack of grains. After 1h in the glase it's the same.
The taste starts with grains, quite intensive, the dilution is almost not noticeable. There are some tanins in the taste, the bitterness suggest a 15y old rum, not a 10y old. The start is almost like the nose, in the middle there is more complexity, the finish is middle long. The aftertaste, mint with leather reminds me of a Rum Nation Caroni, it's very tasty.
Nose: burned sugar, citrus, grains (buckwheat, raye), medical note, caramel, some spice (pepper), fruit (like Jamaica)
Taste initial: grains, citrus, salt, wood, some orange
Middle: buckwheat, barrel (earth), paper, orange peels (bitterness), wood and tanins
Finish: spice, citrus, bitterness (wood), medical note, bourbon, buckwheat, mint
Aftertaste: peppermint, leather (uhh, that's tasty)
Value (51€): 3.5/5
Experience level: professional
Rum tasting in the Finnish wilderness with my good old friend continued with La Maison du Rhum Réunion Island. Pretty nice bottle and label design. Golden color. Glue and rubber mixed with plenty of alcohol to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Harsh burn at the end.
