An unusual expression of Savanna rum, distilled from molasses and fully aged on Réunion Island. Dark amber in colour, and with a typical sherry nose: raisiny, with notes of coffee and black chocolate. Almost no sweetness can be found: this is truly a dry Oloroso style, peppery and almost astringent, extremely winey, with a pleasant hint of old leather and oak.
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!
