Savanna Grand Arome

The Grand Arôme denomination is reserved for rums which have undergone a slower fermentation of the molasses, which results in the maximum concentration of fruity and spicy flavours.

Aged for 10 years on the Island of Reunion, where the tropical climate drew oaky and tannic notes from the cask, and then brought back to Europe for a final period of rest, it has a marked “funky” character of overripe fruits (apples, pineapples, dates…) while remaining dry and distinctly peppery, with a touch of cinnamon too. Very hot and explosive!

This rum has been fully matured at the distillery of origin, in a Tropical climate.

The effect of the warm weather and humidity speeds the maturation process and the interaction with the oak of the cask: the result is a rum which is already perfectly mature and fully expressive at a relatively young age, and a very bold flavour profile which differs from that of rums which have been aged only for a period in the Tropics and then in Europe for the remaining maturation period.

Choosing between the bold taste of Tropical Ageing or the slower but subtler taste of Continental Ageing is a matter of personal preference, and the true connoisseur will enjoy tasting the difference between the two methods: since we consider this information important for the discriminating rum aficionado, we always declare it on the label!
