“Exquisitely balanced, fruity, with mint and caramel notes. Must-try!”

The New Grove Savoir Faire Single Cask, distilled at Grays distillery in Mauritius, is a standout rum offering an intense and well-balanced experience. Aromas of caramel, fresh vanilla, and dried fruits harmonize with a palate rich in woody notes, dark chocolate, and fresh mint. This limited edition from LMDW is praised for its fruit-forward character, complex spice, and exceptional integration of its 65.2% ABV. Fans appreciate its resemblance to early '00s TDL profiles, with its unique blend of tropical fruits, apricot, honey, and Eucalyptus hints. Whether enjoyed neat or with a splash of water, this rum's long, fruity, and slightly spicy finish makes it a must-try for discerning rum enthusiasts.

“Ever since @crazyforgoodbooze got me hooked on Mauritius at the 11th GRF, I've been trying to get to know the country's rums better. With this one, I like the expressive blackcurrant note on the palate. A really pleasant rum, but with an unremarkable nose and a short finish that can't match the Grays from Perola (RX12865) from the same year. Update 2023-07-02: I must have had a bad day at the first tasting, only 82 points just doesn't do the rum justice. Now, at the second tasting, it has a super-long, fruity and woody finish. The impressive red rum now gets a well-deserved 86 points. Pretty good PLV for a single cask and still available, wonderful. Update 2024-03-16: Used as a benchmark rum against two other New Grove single casks and more than lives up to its role. In the meantime I have to say, even better than the 2009 bottling. Amazing Mauritius!”

“So now also the two 2010s from Gunnar his legendary Mauritius Split in the glass. Both are a lot of fun. This one clearly has the higher ABV, but the alcohol is well integrated. Tastes a tick better to me.”

“Das ist meine erste Mauritius Melasse-Session, nach dem ich sie gestern schonmal angetastet habe. Im direkten Vergleich der Savoir Faire 2009 für LMDW, der Savoir Faire 2010 für LMDW und der CDI 2009 13 yo für Perola. Auch der 2010er ist durchaus fruchtig, aber nicht so extrovertiert und begleitet von Tabak und eingebunden in Gewürze (Nelken & Ingwer). Der Pfirsich ist weniger saftig, teilt sich die Bühne mit getrockneter Aprikose. Eine sehr elegante Nase. Die 65,2% sind fantastisch eingebunden und bringen eine tolle Intensität. Er ist außerdem überraschend fruchtig, viel getrocknete Aprikose, aber auch Mango und Pfirsich. Eine frische Minze gesellt sich auch dazu - blind hätte ich den sicher für einen 2003er TDL gehalten. Obwohl im Mund getrocknete Früchte dominieren, bringt der Abgang nochmal eine richtig saftige Mango - das ist großartig. Aus meiner dreier Rund ist der 2010er LMDW der beste, die Intensität im Mund macht die Zurückhaltung in der Nase mehr als Wett. Alkoholintegration, Balance, Komplexität alles top. Der 2009er ist ihm sehr, sehr dicht auf den Fersen. Hier überzeugt vor allem die Alte Marille und die höhere Komplexität, aber das leichte Beißen kostet ein paar Punkte. Vielleicht ist der Unterschied eher einer der Tagesform als des Geschmacks. Der CDI ist schon sehr gut, aber fällt etwas ab. Er ist leichter und damit zu weit auf der fruchtigen Seite.”
