SAVANNA 14 ans Grand Arome Fût 392 The Chronicles 2019 Of 64,2%
Rum, France / La Reunion, 50cl, Ref: 55049
With links to the Bois-Rouge sugar refinery since 1992, the Savanna distillery is one of the only in the world to sell a grand arôme rum produced through a very long (sometimes as long as ten days) and slow fermentation. Aged in cognac casks, it is with authority and above all lots of inspiration, that this very complex version imposes its back-and-forth of flavours and aromas. The way in which, without encountering any opposition, it pushes the medicinal notes of the aromatic palette into the depths of the flavour palette is a perfect example of this.
Profile: the rich initial nose is camphoric, honeyed and fruity (quince). Allowed to breathe, it becomes peppery, lemony and animal (leather). The lively and unctuous attack is vanilla and herbaceous (sugarcane). The deliciously honeyed mid-palate is also chocolatey, floral (vetiver) and fruity (marmalade). The rich finish is powdery (cocoa, grated ginger) and vanilla. The oily retronasal olfaction is characterized by notes of pipe tobacco. Single Cask no. 392. Exclusive to LMDW.

- Appearance : burnished gold with orangey copper glints.
- Nose : ample, rich. The very expressive initial nose is characterized by notes of mustard seed, camphor, benzoin, artichoke heart, quince, lime blossom honey, orange peel and geranium blossom. Allowed to breathe, it becomes peppery, lemony and animal (leather). Gradually, its spicy register (ginger, cinnamon) is established. At this point, straw highlights its deep maturity.
- Palate : both lively and unctuous. Wavering between sugarcane and vanilla, the attack perfectly matches the nose. Deliciously honeyed and fruity (marmalade) and preferring to feed on quince jelly, chocolate, toffee and floral flavours (geranium, vetiver), it has pushed the medicinal notes to the depth of the palate. The end of the palate is spicy (ginger, ginseng) and pulpy (Mirabelle plum, greengage plum, Golden Delicious).
- Overall : long, rich. Cocoa powder, grated ginger and vanilla pod soak the taste buds one by one. Full of flesh and juice, with time the finish becomes increasingly fruity (apricot, quince) and tertiary (chestnut, moss, walnut). The oily retronasal olfaction reveals pipe tobacco and heady florals (freesia, peony). Gently liquorice, the empty glass wavers between precious wood, exotic fruits (banana), dried fruit (hazelnut, date) and bacon.
- The brand
Founded in 1948, the Savanna distillery continues the rum-making tradition. Deeply rooted in its land, in 1992 this ancient rum distillery, originally established in Savanna in Saint Paul de la Réunion, was transferred to the Bois-Rouge site in the north-east of the island, near to the sugar refinery of the same name. It carefully controls every step in the production of its rum, from the cutting of the cane to the bottling, which is carried out in the distillery. A rare practice for a rum distillery, Savanna produces both agricultural rums and traditional rums. It is also an expert in the production of ‘Full Flavour’ rums.
