Summary

The Savanna Unshared cask for Belgium 2020 is a limited release rum distilled from molasses and aged in cognac casks for 5 years. It has an ABV of 50% and is generally good, but some find it too light and lacking in complexity. The nose is fruity with HERR notes, while the taste is more traditional with cane sugar. Overall, it's an enjoyable rum at a good price point, but may be too strong at 50% alcohol content and expensive for its simplicity.

Leider weit entfernt von dem bisherigen Geschmacks- und Geruchsprofil welches ich bei Savanna so schätze. Eher „flach“

Un bon savanna mais que j'ai trouvé personnellement un peu mince. Il passe assez vite en bouche. Le HERR aurait peut être pu se faire mieux sentir. Mais en même temps c'est aussi à replacer dans sa gamme de prix. De ce point de vue là, c'est un excellent rapport qualité/prix.

Ik heb de fles nu enkele maanden open staan. Ik vind het wat minder fruitig dan op het begin. Niet zo intensief en vluchtig dan de HERR, maar de aanwezigheid ervan hierin is merkbaar. De rijping op cognac vaten biedt een aangename dimensie die goed uitgebalanceerd is. Ik hou ervan, maar ik kan me voorstellen dat dat niet voor iedereen geldt.

C’est bon, un peu trop léger à mon goût. Manque de complexité.

Aroma is amazing Palate little bit disappointed, was expected more. Aroma are very close to HV white HERR. Happy to get this same character, but in this release it’s more round and less intense - cask gives something new, but also takes something from raw distillate

Un nez boisé et fumé et un peu plus sur le végétal après aération. En bouche c'est plutôt floral et fruité, assez doux et plaisant. Un rhum léger avec une légère acidité qui fait penser à de la pomme. C'est bon et agréable mais un peu trop léger à mon goût

A pretty mild Savanna. Not really outspoken. Honey. Freshness. A hint of the cognac-wood. Actually expected a bit more from this.

Au nez c’est pâtissier et légèrement boisé. Mais on sent déjà que l’on va croquer à pleine dent dans la pomme ! C’est jeune, frais et léger. En bouche, c’est très rond. C’est très doux, l’alcool est parfaitement intégré. On mange une bonne tarte aux pommes de grand mamy ! Sur la finale le HERR tire son épingle du jeu avec sa fraise tagada et l’olive. Les 5 fruits et légumes quotidiens sont engloutis en quelques gorgées. OK, si tu regardes l’étiquettes et que tu vois que c’est un blend contenant du HERR vieilli 5 ans, c’est frustrant car pas assez explosif. Mais c’est top.

Côté HERR, trop discret, mais rhum équilibré, gourmand et avec lequel on passe un bon moment

Très léger et frais au premier abord mais sympa en bouche.. Les épices viennent par la suite..
