24 Days of Rum (#14) – Takamaka – St. Andre (Seychelles)

Posted by Arctic Wolf on December 14, 2019

The Republic of Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, approximately 1500 kilometers from the coast of East Africa. It is here that Takamaka Rum is produced in Au Cap on the Island of Mahé by the d’Offay brothers at the family’s historical La Plaine St André homestead.

Takamaka St. Andre is premium end of Takamaka’s range, named for La Plaine St Andre, their distillery and plantation. It is an 8 year Old Spirit matured in American Oak barrels.

Here is a link to my tasting notes and scores for the No. 14 spirit in the 24 Days of Rum – The Original Rum Tasting Box:

Review: Takamaka – St. Andre (8 Year Old Rum)

“… Oak spice, vanilla and butterscotch melded with almond and orange peel. Obvious notes of chocolate and a light imprint of tobacco. Coffee notes are subtle and do not disturb the well structured rum …”


Note: 24 Days of Rum – The Original Rum Tasting Box produced by 1423 World Class Spirits contains 24 handpicked rums from 24 different countries all over the world. It features an extraordinary opportunity to sample a wide variety of premium rums allowing you to hone in on the particular style which suits your palate. As indicated in my previously published review (here) This Rum Advent Calendar is a highly recommended gift for the rum enthusiast.
