Sherry Finish

Savanna - 2008/2018


A warm and rich rum distilled from molasses, entirely aged on the island of Reunion. The sweetness of rasins, dates, dried plums and figs is compensated by a slightly astringent, winey and tannic note from the final finish in a sherry cask: it evolves on notes of cola, black pepper and a hint of earthy mustiness. Another very concentrated rum that fully showcases the benefits of aging in a tropical climate for the development of intense flavours.

SKU: NAT 73. Category: .
bollino-tropical-ageing

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!
