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.

Richtig geil wie sehr Savanna & Armagnac harmonieren. Viel Holz, viel Gewürze, etwas Klebstoff, Chili, Rosine, rote Traube und gebackene Banane, sowie dunkle Schokoladencookies. Im Abgang dann auch etwas bitter, adstringierend und mit viel Tanninen und Klebstoff, Menthol und überreife Banane und starkem Mokka, sowie Richtig Dunkler Zartbitterschokolade. Alkohol ist sehr gut eingebunden und macht echt Spaß zu trinken. Sehr süffig für einen Savanna! Für mich in Sachen Savanna im Armagnac Fass definitiv das Benchmark aktuell.

Exkellenter Traditionell mit perfektem Armagnac-Finish!

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.

Complexe and pleasant nose swift dark… but less complex mouth A nice final, elegant, evaporating to something open and fresh.

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

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.
