„Excellent Savanna! Intense and yet balanced. Pineapple, esters and light mint play super together. This one is really fun!“

„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“

„It's back to autumn and thus the rum season. In the sampling jam waits a very good Savanna Wild Island with Armagnac and Cognac barrel. You can smell and taste that. On the nose a great sweetness of raisins and dried fruit. Honey, young wood, chocolate/mocha and olive. On the palate more spices like pepper and allspice. Light bitter notes on the finish. Well done all around.“

„Great Savanna aroma, as they do so well. Super gourmet roasted pineapple, super pleasure. I think it's very good, but it's a little below LMDW's unshared for me.“

„Le ges est magnifique pour moi qui ai goûté énormément de savanna c est un top 5 , hors herr (quoique), ce qui est vraiment sympa chez savanna ce sont les finish cognac, armagnac, Calvados, mais il faut bien avouer que quand ça passe dans du cognac/armagnac plus le côté grand arôme, on est rarement deçu. Je me souviens de la premières impression olfactive ,ouvert une bouteille avec des amis,un s exclame, ya de l armagnac la dedans!, le boisé de ce finish chez savanna s orienté sur le marc de raisin, un coté pineau des charentes tout cela mélangé aux fruits exotiques , un bouche , il y a quand même une grosse attaque mais tt est parfaitement intégré, la noblesse des futs métropolitain ce mélange au terroir reunionnais , quelle classe ,un des meilleur embouteillage de la distillerie c est sur, manque peut être un poil de longueur (je bois pas mal de gros tdl en ce moment), different ,magnifique noble, la classe“

„Tolle Abfüllung. Ein zahmer Grand Arome und das ist einfach stimmig. Tolle Fruchtnoten mit etwas Minze. Wem ein Grand Arome zu extrem ist, sollte dem hier ne Chance geben.“

„Savanna au top ! J'ai beaucoup apprécié l'alliance avec le finish armagnac. Je l'ai goûter en sample. Même si je lui ai laissé du temps il pourrait s'ouvrir encore plus et être meilleur“
