Hailing from tiny Réunion Island, off the coast of Madagascar near southern Africa, the Cap Savanna Rhum isn’t your traditional Caribbean rum. Made in the French style from sugarcane juice rather than molasses, it’s aged for seven years in French oak barrels. Note: This is not currently available in the US.

  • Aged Rum
    Rum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".

Tasting Notes

"The nose is most unusual and enticing – stone fruit, leather, barbecue spices, and a touch of acetic acid. No need to rush to taste it, but when you do, the flavor explodes in your mouth--a quick burst of sweetness before the woody, French oak tannins take over for a very long finish. It’s almost as if you were sipping a fine calvados rather than an aged rhum. A rare treat for rum connoisseurs. "
