“Seems like a slightly tamed Grand Arôme - but that does not mean that the bottling would lack even the slightest bit of power. Powerful fruit esters, wood, mint, plus some mint tea...impressive.”

“A very good Savanna. The aging in Armagnac and Cognac barrels is certainly not to everyone's taste, but I love it here! It fits wonderfully and gives it something special! I would like to have more of this!2nd TastingMy impression from the first time has been confirmed! A very successful Savanna, which however needs time in the glass”
