“Very pleasant, but with little tasting depth due to a light aromatic bouquet. From a Rum Nation I would have expected more. Overall it is not bad at all, it is good drinking, but it lacks that leap to be interesting for a tasting of a certain level. Woody notes, esters, spice in a light way and a medium lasting finish of woody notes and then lychee/grape. The three years of finishing in Sherry Oloroso cask did not give much to the rum.”

“A lovely Savanna bottled by Rum Nation with a sherry cask finish that has left its mark. The nose is fairly classic but easy to drink, with spicy woody notes of leather and licorice, caramel and brown sugar, followed by a more varied fruitiness (citrus, dried fruit and red fruit). A relatively smooth, accessible rum. The attack on the palate reveals a heavier, more aromatic side, in which esters, tannins and aromatic herbs show their character. This is followed by fruity notes, particularly citrus, red and black fruits (blackcurrant). Spicy oak completes the concentrated, dry, gourmet profile, in which alcohol is well integrated. The long finish returns to raisins, spicy, phenolic notes and fragrant herbs. The barrel has clearly played its part in the final product, adding a good deal of aroma and sweetness. A fine cuvée with good value for money.”
