Compagnie des Indes Savanna WST&HF

If you read my articles you should know I especially love the Hampden distillery, so I’m curious to find out if those 2 years will have a great impact on this Grand Ârome. Let’s watch, smell and taste it!

Compagnie des Indes Savanna WST&HF 2008-2020 (58.3%, cask #BSS125, 106 bottles)

Colour: Copper.
Nose: Full of fruits and acidulous. Ripe exotic fruits, lemons, pineapples, bananas, blackcurrants and bergamots. Behind those fruity side, I also have polish, solvents, oak wood, black olives leather and tobacco leaves.
Mouth: Powerful and aromatic. The exotic fruits are back and dominates the mouth, tagada strawberry candies, citruses, bananas, green olives, fresh pineapple juice and honey. The Hampden finish creates a beautiful balance and some roundness.
Finish: Long and bitterish. Burnt wood, cold ashes, engine oil, pomegranates, plums, pears and candied fruits.

I’m pleasantly surprised of the final result. Good job!

Score: 88

Did I forget to say I had fun tasting it? I had such a lot of fun! After all, this rum is as funky as you’re Gaëtan.
