The Savanna Unshared Cask, bottled for Germany (Rum Artesanal) is a rum from Reunion of the Savanna Distillerie. The rum was distilled in 2004 in column style and was allowed to store 14 years in oak barrels. The limited Single Cask Rum was produced without additives or filtration, at a cask strength of 53.6% alcohol, bottled in 699 bottles of 0.5l.

The rum is very pleasing in the nose. Caramel and roasted vanilla are very concise. But also wood and some alcohol or solvent. A little fruit combines with Armagnac or Cognac. A beautiful nose. On the palate, the aromas are repeated. Caramel and vanilla pair with lots of wood and tannins. Here also comes the bitter chocolate. The rum becomes spicier and dry to the finish, which is a bit too short for me.

The Savanna Unshared Cask is a delicious rum, but it did not impress me very much. The influence of wood is very high. With the hype, I would have expected a little more. The price may therefore be a bit high and the sample is sufficient.

Der Savanna Unshared Cask, bottled for Germany ist ein Rum aus Reunion der Savanna Distillerie. Der Rum wurde 2004 im Column Stil distilliert und durfte 14 Jahr in Eichenfässern Fässern lagern. Der limitierte Single Cask Rum wurde ohne Zusatzstoffe oder Filtration, bei einer Fassstärke von 53,6% Alkohol, in 699 Flaschen a 0,5l abgefüllt.

Der Rum ist in der Nase sehr gefällig. Karamel und geröstete Vanille sind sehr prägnant. Aber auch Holz und etwas Alkohol oder Lösungsmittel. Ein wenig Frucht kombiniert sich mit Armagnac bzw. Cognac. Eine schöne Nase. Am Gaumen wiederholen sich die Aromen. Karamel und Vanille paaren sich mit viel Holz und Tanninen. Hier kommt auch die Bitter Schokolade. Der Rum wird würziger uns Trocken zum Abgang, welcher für mich etwas zu kurz ist.

Der Savanna Unshared Cask ist ein leckerer Rum, welcher mich aber auch nicht sehr beeindruckt hat. Der Holzeinfluss ist sehr hoch. Bei dem Hype hätte ich etwas mehr erwartet. Der Preis ist daher evtl. etwas hoch und das Sample ausreichend.

Traditional column still rum from Savanna.
First flavors in the nose are the intensive dry fruits with grains, then caramel, some cocoa, orange peels, wood and earth. Grains is the typical Reunion note.

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 tannins are a little bit too intensive.
The taste is typical Reunion with dry fruits and grains, in the middle tast is some wood with apricot. It's intensive and balanced with great aftertaste. I love leather in combination with firmint.

The combination of aromas is nice and complex. The finish is a little bit too spicy. The nose is a little bit better and sweeter. I would prefer slightly more caramel in the taste to cover the tannins.
Because of the long aging I would rate it with 89 points.

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

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Fruit: 2/5
Spice: 3.5/5
Mildness: 3/5
Complexity: 4/5
Value (99€ for 0.5l): 3.5/5 too expensive for 0.5l (70€ would be ok)
Experience level: professional

Another nice job by Savanna, but to my taste really not as good as the grand arômes.
You really feel the cask but pretty balanced, enjoyed it.
