Tasted this Agricole at the pre-party to Sweden Rumfest 2023 at Cane Rum Society in Stockholm.
The Savanna Distillerie was built between 1948 and 1950 by Emile Hugot in Saint Paul, Reunion.
It wasn’t the first distillery in Reunion cause rum has been distilled in the island since the 1870’s from sugarcane grown on the island. In 1992 the distillery was moved the Bois-Rouge sugar factory in Saint Paul where the entire production now takes place, from cultivation and harvesting of the sugar cane to distillation and bottling.
Rum from the Savanna distillery has grown quite popular lately and Mr. Fabio Rossi from Rum Nation started a collaboration with them some years ago which has resulted in this bottling among some others.
This bottling was distilled in 2005 in their Savalle Column Still whereafter it directly was transferred to steel tanks where it was left for 17 months before moved to cognac casks for eleven years and finally placed for one more year in port casks before bottled in 1401 bottles.
The nose is quite typical for Agricole’s. There are aromas of grass, sugar cane and oak.
At the palate it’s fresh, herbal, rich and powerful with hints of oak and fresh sugar cane.
The finish is long with the same tastes together with a certain sweetness.
Overall a fantastic, rich, powerful and well-balanced Agricole.
