Savanna Grand Arome
This rum from the Island of Réunion, where it has matured for its first 10 years before resting in steel tanks in Europe, is called Grand Arôme because it offers a higher content of flavorsome esters due to the long and slow fermentation of the molasses. Very intense and organic at the nose: not only oak, but an ebullient kaleidoscope of ripe fruits, wood polish and “funkiness”. At the palate it is tannic, with peppery and herbal notes, but also a touch of cinnamon, propolis and green apples for a very quizzical and fruity twist.
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!
