Savanna Traditionnel

A mature Reunion rum with a particularly spicy influence, thanks to the 10 years spent in a cognac cask in the tropical climate of the island, followed two years in steel tanks in Europe. The typical rich style of the distillery, very aromatic and estery, finds a fierce contrast in the dry and tannic character imparted by the oak: plenty of liquorice, gentian root, mixed medicinal herbs and even precious botanical cocktail bitters. A drop of water helps the tannins to loosen up, without the pepperiness being impacted too much. Very volcanic, dark and powerful.

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!
