A good Agricole with a lot of glue, somewhat unbalanced at the end, which makes it interesting.But: The price is completely exaggerated for a young rum, which brings us to the label. For me, a misleading declaration, since it is implied here that it is a 1992 vintage.

Pretty good Savanna rum, very fresh and fruity with nice spices and a hint of chocolate. The flavours get even more clear in the empty glass after a while. I do love the smoky finish mixed with some leather. Price to quality is OK.

Yes, is already quite clear Savanna mir the so own profile.nose: artificial-spicy-fruity. As always, a crude mix of something like nail polish and phenol with sweet honey and a potpourri of fruits, here green apple, sour cherry, raspberry and currant. Mixed in with this is something vegatable like olive and pickled artichoke. Always interesting.Palate: distinctly spicy and aromatic. Savanna DNA here too. Artificially fruity, goes more in the direction of blackberry. Honeyed sweetness and something herbal and vegetal again. Seems a bit salty at first and then becomes slightly bitter and woody with vanilla and anise. Finishes with artificial honeydew melon.The many different barrels make their presence felt: artificial fruit and vegstibles at the same time. Nice entry into the Savanna world

The same profile as the 2005 Creol but much nicer. The time (and the blend bottled here) has softened it, it has gone on aromas of dried grapes and honey which make it a very pleasant and easy to drink Agricole. Really nice, after that it's still a bit expensive compared to what you can find in Agricole at the same price...

Un rhum goûté au Rum and Gin Festival à Lucerne. Un nez très végétal, floral avec de l’olive verte et du lierre. La bouche est pleine d’arômes avec beaucoup d’olive verte et toutes sortes d’herbes. La finale est assez longue avec des arômes végétaux, avec du tabac frais.

The flavor is soft and at the same time spicy, the palate shows its lively side and finishes with notes of fresh sugar cane.

An interesting rum that tastes almost exactly like it smells. Very spice, herb and flower dominant with salty seawater and olive brine to bring it to the next level. Berrymix (specifically blackberry) and light woody notes bring some welcoming sweetness to tame all of the above. At the very end earthy camphor kicks it into second gear and leads to a very tasty cooling finish. Lovely. Unfortunately the price is too high for a spirit this young -for my liking-.

As if you suck on a piece of Tahitian vanilla -Anything takes on vanilla, which has lain in a wooden barrel, but the aroma presents itself then, as in Lebensmotteln with vanilla - you taste it somehow out, but it's something else - this one tastes as if you really bite into such a fresh, juicy vanilla bean pure, otherwise there is vlt still some peach and leather, all in all a really nice rum and the Agricole also comes through very well, but the PLV is a bit brazen ...but you can try it times 😂🤪

Probably a Savanna designed to have its own identity, complete and complex, distant from the old HERR. With distinct notes of gouache and plasticine, a nice buttery mouthfeel, but also loads of medicinal notes. A nice sipper, a game-changer compared to more tamed or noble Savanna, funkier in a delighting way.

One of my best rum

Moje první Savana, měl jsem ji na to-do listu už dlouho. Cítím hodně dřevo, na první doušek jsem ucitil trochu vyšší %. Med, květinové tóny, něco jako lipový nebo bylinkový čaj. Zajímavý rum, chutná úplně jinak, než všechny předchozí.

The smells reminds me of freshly cut grass, sharp and earthy. The taste is very woody, with an aftertaste that is sweet.
