Encore un truc monstrueux de chez Savanna mais je le trouve un peu monolithique, si on peut dire
Dans le même style je préfère les autres Lontan/Grand arômes que je trouve un peu plus complexes et moins violents. Enfin, violents aussi mais différemment on va dire ^^ Ca reste très bon pour les amateurs du genre.

Immediately after pouring into my glass my wife asks in three meters distance: "Where does the rum-raisin-nuts chocolate smell comes from?
This rum is awesome ... this intensity ... it is not necessary to bring your nose close to the glass and you will already smell tons of fruit esters.
Okay, let me try to describe the esters that I smell: There are all kinds of jam (e.g. raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, strawberry), exotic fruit smoothies (mango, papaya, banana), fried banana, roast apple with cinnamon, toffee apples, candy floss, Juicy Fruit chewing gum, orange cake, nougat, chestnuts, apple strudel with custard ...
Despite of the high alcohol content it does not burn the nose.
In my opinion this is simply the best smelling rum in the world!

Extremely powerful and bold. Of course the 63.8% alcohol burn like hell, but in my opinion it can easily be enjoyed undiluted "drop by drop".
The intensity of aromas is unbelievable. Extreme sweet with an unearthly and unthinkable fruitiness ... an explosion of esters. Under this circumstances it is difficult for any other aromas to reach the tastebuds, which give signals of complete overflow, but there is some toffee and iced tea in the background.

Long and sweet with a dry, oaky, spicy and slightly bitter aftertaste.

In my opinion this is one of the best rums in the world. An unforgettable experience.
Okay, I know for others it is one of the worst.
But isn't it similar for peated whiskies ... some love it ... others hate it.
I would not be surprised if "High Ester" will become a Hype similar to what "Peated" is for whisky ... and honestly ... is "smells like fruit esters" really worse than "smells like cowshed"?

Al naso è spaziale, inonda la stanza dei suoi profumi di fragola/big babol, melone, ananas, banana, maracuja e altri frutti tropicali oltre agli esteri/maturati.
Al palato permangono i maturati/esteri, un po' di arrostito, fragola/big babol, melone, papaia e pepe che permangono sul lungo e intenso finale (non riesco a trovare la nota di maracuja che altri citano). Abv integrato benissimo, ma poco rotondo, la nota di big babol copre un po' tutto il resto ( e a me non piacciono le big babol). Una caramella unica nel suo genere, nel bicchiere vuoto big babol, esteri e lieve arrostito

It is a bomb of esters. FULL of them. Too much for my personal palate. But is it good? If you like that style, yes.
