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.

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)

8-The nose opens with a very nice banana, with notes of molasses, strongly toasted wood and coffee. It starts to melt into a dark honey with accents of tar and dried flowers, then into thick, sticky drops of fruit juices. Vanilla, almond and toffee arrive with the opening, while the rum continues to launch some geranium flights.
On opening, the coffee and molasses are lemony and thus sharper. The woodiness takes on an air of toasted bread and nutty, nutty fruit. The pepper is fresh and minty.

7-The palate is balanced and rather concentrated. Exotic fruits make a quick passage, banana pervades, they immediately give way to roasted nuts, roasted cocoa and a tasty coffee. A small benevolent solvent cleanses a slightly tarry metal.

7-The finish is very roasted, even burnt and mineral. The oxidised nuts are coated with molasses.It is a bit dry.

Not bad, a bit bland, exactly what you expect from agricole rum.

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)

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.
