Savanna Traditionnel

A very intense rum with a strongly oaky touch due to 13 years spent in cognac casks in a tropical climate before being laid to rest in steel tanks in Europe. Dark, dry and with a slight note of old bookstore, it needs a drop of water to release enticing aromas of cloves, bergamot, gentian root and liquorice. Its tannic character becomes stronger towards the end, with a particularly oaky and peppery final blast on the palate. Very warm and tight, a rum that betrays the volcanic intensity of the Island of Réunion.

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!
