What does this rum taste like?

The flavor profile of Collection Métissage Maputo is based on 40 user reviews. We have compiled and summarized the community's tasting notes for you, to give you an impression of the aroma and taste of the rum:

Savanna Collection Métissage Maputo exhibits a complex, profound character. Dominating notes of caramel, coffee, and chocolate meet the spiciness from a 16-year tropical aging. An initial solvent aroma evolves into a charming balance of Armagnac influences and dark fruit, with a hint of fresh grape. A sensation for patient drinkers! High ABV requires time to mellow, or a dash of water to unveil its full potential.

„Really awesome how much Savanna & Armagnac harmonize. Lots of wood, lots of spice, some glue, chili, raisin, red grape and baked banana, and dark chocolate cookies. Then also a bit bitter on the finish, astringent and with lots of tannins and glue, menthol and overripe banana and strong mocha, as well as Really Dark Dark Chocolate. Alcohol is very well integrated and really fun to drink. Very drinkable for a Savanna! For me in terms of Savanna in the Armagnac barrel definitely the benchmark currently.“

„Ein vergleichsweise röstiger Savanna-Vertreter, was in meinen Augen aber grundsätzlich für die spannende Bandbreite der Destille spricht. Davon abgesehen bleibt hier neben den erwähnten Röstnoten primär noch etwas Frucht, Holz und Vanillesüsse aus dem Fass hängen. Gut, aber nicht kein Savanna, von dem ich mir eine Flasche wünschen würde.“

„Die Nase geht stark in Richtung Bourbon. Typische Marker von der Destillerie nehme ich nicht so stark wahr. Am Gaumen sehr fasslastig. Nachklang auch ohne Überraschung und mittellang. Insgesamt ein wenig enttäuschend.“

„This one needs to stand for a long time before the ABV stops biting on your nose and on the palate it also bites so I added some water after which it opened up a bit. I'd set the ABV integration on this one to really poor and I usually really like Savanna but this one is out of character.“

„aus der Collection Metissage den Fort Dauphin, Maputo und Madras verkostet: der Madras sticht für mich heraus, schon weil er als einziger der drei als Grand Arome einfach deutlich intensiver ist, mit herrlichen roten Früchten und Butter-Gebäck an der Nase. Bei den anderen beiden habe ich mit dem Armagnac-Finish viel Traube und Holz. Der Maputo ist mir mit seinen 64,2% etwas zu alkoholisch an der Nase, da finde ich den auf 44,8% verdünnten Fort Dauphin fast besser. Leider klappt das nicht gleichermaßen am Gaumen. Da wirkt der Fort Dauphin dann doch eher dünn.“

„Savanna Maputo Wild Island 2ème série. Il s'agit d'un rhum traditionnel donc de mélasse avec un vieillissement tropical durant 16 ans affiné en fûts de cognac. C'est le frère jumeau du Savanna Fort Dauphin mais la comparaison s'arrête là tellement leurs profils sont différents. Le Maputo titre à un degré d'alcool beaucoup plus élevé (64.2 degrés). Il s'agit de mon Savanna préféré concernant cette 2ème série de par sa singularité. Je n'ai pas connaissance d'un savanna ayant un profil aussi proche de certains Guyana Skeldon ou Enmore. En effet, une fois les notes de solvants passées après une bonne aération, des notes de caramel, de café et de chocolat dominent les débats. Une note de fraîche et fruitée de raisin vient équilibrer le tout. Bref ce Maputo est un vrai coup de cœur et fait partie de mon top 3 des rhums traditionnels hors grand arôme que j'ai goûté chez Savanna.“

„Sacré final avec pas mal d'épices.. On sent bien le boisé et l'armagnac“

„Sehr viele Röstnoten, würzig, teils bitter. Kaum Frucht und der Alkohol könnte auch besser integriert sein. Nicht mein präferiertes Savanna-Profil“

„Guter Traditionel, der aber stark vom Armagnac Fass beeinflusst wurde. Der Rum benötigt sehr lange Standzeit, um sich zu öffnen und bis der Alkohl bewältigt werden kann. Der Rum verträgt Wasser, um sich weiter zu öffnen.“
