Ravishing Rhum from Réunion
 
The Isle of Réunion, situated east of Madagascar, isn’t a huge island, but it has three big and famous Rum-making establishments to be proud of: Riviere du Mat, Isautier, and Savanna. The latter was founded back in 1870 when France wanted to diversify sugar production (translation: they wanted more of that lovely Rhum juice). Savanna makes a complete range of Rums: light, traditional, agricoles, and Rums of various ages.
 
This particular expression is a beast of feast. It’s a traditional Rhum (molasses-based) and it spent seven long years in oak. It was bottled at cask strength (or as the French call it – Brut de Fut), while the entire production took place at the Savanna distillery. It’s an intriguing amber Spirit that caught the tropical soul of the island, underlining it with a potent punch.

You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. The most popular suggestions are Rum (the Romani word for 'potent'), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), and Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
Rum is why we measure alcohol proof. To make sure Rum wasn’t watered down, it had to be ‘proven’ by soaking gunpowder with it. If it was ‘overproof’ (higher than 57.15 % vol.), then the gunpowder would ignite, but if it wouldn’t, it was ‘underproof.’
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
