Bapt & Blem's Rum 12 Year Old Savanna

Bapt & Blem's Rum 12 Year Old Savanna...$84.99
Origin: Reunion 

Distillery: Savanna 
Age: 12 years old 

Distillery Savanna:
 The distillery of Savanna was born in 1948 and was designed by Emile Hugot. The distillery has long produced light traditional rums on its St. Paul site. In 1992, the distillery was transferred to Saint-André, thus bringing it closer to the island's main source of sugar production, and took the opportunity to modernize its facilities considerably. 

“Traditional” rums 
The Bois-Rouge sugar refinery supplies the Savanna distillery with molasses, the essential raw material used to make traditional rums. This is the essence of the Reunionese terroir. Rums are distilled in column stills and then aging in often damp and hot conditions. 

Bapt & Clems – Savanna 12 years old 
During the last visit of Marc Darroze to Saint-André, the technical team of Savanna opened the doors of its cellars. This is how Marc was able to select this exceptional batch of traditional rum of 12 years of aging. In red flesh ex Cognac. 

Tasting notes
Pretty fire color with more sustained reflections. Savanna's unique aging brings an incredible complexity and typicity to the nose: cooked fruits (apple cooked), praline, cigar box, dried flowers, beeswax. After a few minutes, heavier aromas of gingerbread, menthol (almost medical) and honey supplement this palette so rich in aromas. On the palate, the attack is supple, the tannins are rich and round, the end of the mouth slightly spiced (green pepper, sweet pepper). A pure marvel of finesse
