Mein erster Savanna, ich war direkt verliebt. Aber nachdem ich den 2007er Rum Nation probiert habe fällt dieser doch etwas zurück. Sehr sehr leckerer und guter Savanna, etwas alkoholischer und weniger komplex. Hat aber von allem etwas, Frucht, Holz, Gewürze und Florale Noten.

Not bad, I kind of like this rum more every time time I drink it. Several tastings in and still like it 😋

This beautiful rum needs to rest. I found that after 15 plus minutes it started to release a lot of flavours as well as esters. You may need a few drops of water because of the gmhigh proof, but not a must. A beautiful nose that made you wonder if the palate would falter, but it didn't, it maintained the high quality. A very young rum that hits all the right marks. Price to quality is very good.

Le nez est intense et très évolutif. On navigue entre du boisé, de la vanille, du poivré et de la réglisse. Pour prendre ensuite la direction des Pyrénées avec un profil très herbacée. Et pour finir des esters s’invitent à la partie (acétone, chewing-gum …). En bouche, l’attaque est plutôt franche et agressive. Le profil herbacé est plus marqué (camomille, anis …) voir médicinal. Des éléments plus doux (vanille – pomme – raisins) atténuent l’attaque initiale. La finale est sèche et épicée avec une légère amertume tannique. Un single cask avec un joli fruité (cerises acides).

starker PLV Savanna! hubba bubba Kirsch/Erdbeer und eisbonbons mit Pfirsich Eistee... so wie man Savanna mag und dazu noch Preislich echt in Ordnung! allerdings auch Recht Fass-lastig...

Ausgeprägte Röstaromen und ein starker Einfluss des Fasses sind spürbar. Daneben schöne Fruchtigkeit mit getrockneten Pflaumen und Sauerkirschen. Für meinen Geschmack ist der Alkohol aber nicht gut eingebunden - mit etwas Wasser besser. Savanna-typische Noten sind auch da aber nicht sehr präsent.
