Had just a sample of this column distilled traditional rum from Reunion.
In nose it’s a little bit alcoholic but also fruity with tropical fruits.
In mouth, at palate and during the medium long finish it’s still fruity but also spicy and I recognize hints of anise and during the finish there also shows up hints of bitterness.
Overall an interesting rum that makes me want to test more from the brand, both traditional and Agricole.
Picture: My emptied sample poured in a glass & The new bottle.
Duft af marcipan, sprit og frugt. Smagen er desværre tør og meget fad. Dog også lidt sødme og frugt med et strejf af Anis. Men samlet set er den alt for tør. (19. december 2021 i 1423)
ok rum with no additives, liquorice flavor (anise) and some alcoholic smell, in my opinion with more ageing can be a lot better, it reminds me of some agricole lightly aged (4-5 years) from martinique and guadeloupe, but this is a traditionnel (molasses distilled, not agricole)
Vůně: Opečené dřevo, vanilka, hořké mandle, koření
Chuť sušší, dřevitá, červené ovoce s tóny sušených banánů koňak, vanilka
Dochuť střední, dřevitá, koňak, čokoláda
Savanna is an interesting distillery from La Reunion in that they make rums both from molasses and from cane juice. This is one of their rum traditionnels meaning molasses based and they clearly know what they are doing in this art. The nose is quite subtle apart from a hint of vanilla and a complete absence of alcohol smell. In the mouth it is incredibly smooth to sip and the vanilla carries through to greater expression. Slight and subtle tropical fruits can be gleaned but the most impressive thing is just how well all the flavors turn in on themselves to join an incredibly integrated whole. Practically no alcohol burn whatsoever and with an aftertaste length that is about par for the course. But the takeaway here is that this is a highly agreeable sipper with very well integrated flavors. Well done and particularly recommended to those seeking a gentlemanly rum.
The label of the sample bottle was very promising and I trusted I was up for a nice treat. Reality was different. I thought I tasted some apples but was not so sure. Could not find this sippable. Based on tasting a 2cl sample.
Another first. Smells like apple cider...tastes like apple cider... and finishes with a hint of black pepper. Would drink again and try their other offerings. Makes me want to go to reunion island.
