„Flat nose, but all the more complex on the palate. Very nicely balanced with a great finish. The alcohol is also well integrated. Wood and smoke notes are clearly in the background. For just under 50 € very worthwhile to start in the world of Demarara rums in cask strength.“

„This ICBU Mark has similarities to the SWR, similar chocolate nougat caramel notes but without the dark bitterness of the colored SWR. Along with that, fruitier, wineier notes come through more clearly. You can tell this is a relatively young Demerara and the alcohol could be a bit better integrated. Not much else happens on the finish either, unfortunately.This Savalle is a very relaxed easy sipper for me. Accessible and round, somewhat one dimensional and a very good value for money. I like him very much, but he is a rather simple rum.“

„Really needs some time to breath to get past alcoholic notes on the nose. You will be rewarded with a pleasant nose along the lines of sweetness/sugar, raisins and milk chocolate.“

„Un bon demerara que je trouve assez typique de cette Colonne avec son coté Pruneau/raisin bien marqué. Mais il lui manque un peu de complexité et un le coté "sombre" qui me plait tellement dans certains rums du Guyana.“

„Au nez l'alcool est un peu présent mais pas trop agressif. C'est un nez doux sur les zestes d'agrumes (mandarine, kumquat) et le chocolat au lait. Un léger fumé en bouche avec un côté très légèrement salin. On est plus sur le raisin. Un sucre bien présent aussi. Pointe d'amertume en fin de bouche sans que ça soit dérangeant. La finale est plaisante et un peu piquante. Je n'ai pas une grande expérience des demerara mais ça donne envie de poursuivre.“

„Anfangs in der Nase recht verhalten, er brauch seine Zeit sich zu entfalten, doch dann kommt er sehr lecker. Für den Ausgabepreis echt top. Ein leichter Rum der sich nicht verstecken muss. Guyana ist halt meins. 😋“
