“What a wild ride this rum is. Right away the nose hit me with olive brine and nail polish remover, so much so that I almost couldn’t get past it. I could try to find other notes hiding behind there but it was just so overwhelmingly true to those two items that it felt like I was ‘trying’ to find something more. Both of these notes hold true and dominate on the palate as well, although this funky rum has a bit more going on. Behind the salty olive brine and acetone there was also permanent marker, a bit of something peaty or smoky, some mild licorice like spice. This was a wildly interesting way to sample my first rum from Reunion but I would never catch myself drinking this as a regular sipper. I think an imaginative mixer could make great use of this in a cocktail however and it is perfect for nerding out. I will score it 6.5 because it’s just not my palate if I was looking for something to enjoy sipping - but it’s so curious and fun that the ‘experience’ of trying it could be 8+”

“My second Grand Arôme (after the Aficionados Le Galion) and my first taste of Savanna. I do prefer the meatier profile and finish of the Le Galion to the cough syrup-y notes of the Savanna. I love the intensity and that you can smell this bottle across the room, but upon revisiting this bottle, the medicinal and industrial notes are overwhelming. I like when those flavors compliment something else but aren’t the focal point. Not a bad price point but doesn’t compare to La Galion.”

“This rum was a huge disappointment. I heard great things about the Grand Arome, and I thought it would compare favorably to Jamaica hogo, but the Grand Arome is way to savory for me. It's flavor reminds me of hot dogs and pickles and witch hazel. That's not a flavor I want from my rum. Sorry folks! I won't rebuy.”
