How does this rum taste?

Unique and bold, S.B.S Réunion Grand Arôme intrigues with estery, overripe fruits and an eccentric blend of saumure and ketchup notes. Hits some with an off-putting chemical edge, yet enthusiasts may adore its divisive, funky complexity. Not for the fainthearted.

“This rum is really interesting, but I'm not sure how to rate it yet, never had such a flavor in the glass. It is a mixture of initially pure nail polish remover (ester galore), but without a fruity component, and then later wet wood, the Virgin Oak has done a great job. A crass stuff, it seems somehow "sick" to me, in the sense of absolutely wacky, extreme. Anyone who blindly tastes a Savanna out here can only be congratulated. Let's see what the others say, who get these days samples from me. 😉 Update 2023-08-04: At the 2nd tasting, unfortunately, completely failed. The co-tasting whisky drinker (advanced) just said "manure!" - and I have to agree with him now, unfortunately. 😳 Too bad, with this experimental rum I could not pull him from the whisky to the rum side. But I'm still waiting for the reviews of those who got a sample (at a fortunately bearable price) of this (failed?) experiment. I'm curious!”

“I can't do anything with it. I have a taste on the palate as if they had added a few dead animals during fermentation . . In addition to rotten and musty, somehow something carrion-like! At the very end, a little strawberry wine gum comes through, but that can't really save the rum.”

“I‘m sitting like the meme of John Travolta and looking for the Savanna GA flavours… Double Checking the label doesn‘t help🫣 The nose is OK, but what‘s going on the palate is just disgusting. The finish last long with a bitter taste of sour cherries 🤣Some extra points, because I like sour cherries 😁 BTW My GF ask, what‘s smells like compost in here 🤦🏻‍♂️”
