Ø Market Value

Good 886 bottles Under 250€

The Rhum Agricole Vieux is an exceptional release from the Savanna distillery in Reunion, distilled in 2007 from sugar cane juice using a column still and aged for 11 years. With a limited run of only 886 bottles and an ABV of 50.4%, this rum boasts a unique aroma profile, including glue, vegetal notes, peaches, pear, and wine. The flavorful taste is marked by oak, nail polish, grass, hay, and almond. While some users found the funky profile a bit disconcerting, others appreciated its fresh, vegetal, and Cognac cask-influenced character. This Rhum Agricole Vieux is an intriguing and distinct option for rum enthusiasts looking for something different.

„Overall a fantastic and well-balanced Agricole that I tasted at the pre-party to Sweden Rumfest 2023 at Cane Rum Society in Stockholm. The Savanna Distillerie was built between 1948 and 1950 by Emile Hugot in Saint Paul, Reunion. It wasn’t the first distillery in Reunion cause rum has been distilled in the island since the 1870’s from sugarcane grown on the island. In 1992 the distillery was moved the Bois-Rouge sugar factory in Saint Paul where the entire production now takes place, from cultivation and harvesting of the sugar cane to distillation and bottling. Rum from the Savanna distillery has grown quite popular lately and Mr. Fabio Rossi from Rum Nation started a collaboration with them some years ago which has resulted in this bottling among some others. This single cask bottling was distilled in 2007 in their Savalle Column Still whereafter was transferred to former cognac casks for eleven years of aging before bottled in 886 bottles.“

„Le nez est moins rond et plus sec. On a du léger boisé, de la pêche et quelque chose d’intrigant-dérangeant : vernis-colle En bouche, c’est très-trop funky ! Sommes-nous toujours sur l’agricole !? On a du boisé, des fruits secs mais surtout à nouveau cette colle-vernis à ongles assez dérangeante. On a du gazon fraîchement coupé, c’est la porte d’entrée d’un jardin réunionnais mais décevant. La finale est somme toute longue mais sans intérêt. Franchement, il n’est pas du tout gourmand. On a comme une touche de grand arôme dans de l’agricole mais que l’ensemble n’est pas bien équilibré.“
