Savanna Lontan Grand Arôme 2002 8yr 57,8%

RX6201 Very good Column Still Rum 912 bottles Above 250€

Immerse yourself in the exquisite sensory experience of the "Lontan Grand Arôme" rum, a limited production jewel hailing from the renowned Savanna distillery in Reunion. Distilled in 2002 from premium sugarcane juice using a Column Still and meticulously matured over an 8-year span, this rarity encapsulates the true essence of what a Grand Arôme should deliver. Discover the potent allure of the rum's intoxicating aroma, a symphony of woody, fruity richness, spellbinding spice, and subtle cognac notes, demonstrating the expression's remarkable intensity. This multi-layered scent reveals the meticulous craftsmanship and time invested in producing such an extraordinary spirit. Taste the explosion of fruity flavors, harmoniously merging with deep, woody undertones. This rum strikes the perfect balance between an overripe, intense taste profile with delightfully funky hints, perfectly underpinned by a tropical fruit finale. As noted by dedicated gourmands, its wild strawberry, menthol gum, cinnamon, and pineapple notes flood the palate. The alcohol integration within the "Lontan Grand Arôme" rum is flawless, resulting in a smooth Grand Arôme imbued with pleasant potency. Despite its robust 57.8% ABV, those yearning for an even fuller-bodied experience may note that releases around 65% ABV offer enhanced complexity, confirming the consistent evolution of Savanna's distilling prowess. Take advantage of the opportunity to experience this exceptional rum, with fewer than 1,000 bottles released. The "Lontan Grand Arôme" is a must-have addition to any aficionado's collection, promising an extraordinary distillate adventure that is undeniably worth every drop.

“#4168 If you like Savanna you're going to like this one as well. Nice and intense with some funk. Lots of fruit in the profile and I'd go as far as saying rotten fruit 😊 Love the menthol in the finish.”
