S.B.S. Fiji 2002 Rum is a pot still rum. It is a typical Fiji rum.

Smell: A typical Fiji smell greets me. I perceive oil, salted fruits and olives. In contrast to RA Fiji 2001, we have a typical profile here, no dried fruit or the like in the smell. I also find vanilla, more olives and wood. Medical notes with a little tar and petroleum also come into their own. It is spicy and also has a lot of pepper and other spices. That is very reminiscent of the TRC19. An excellent Fiji with no particular surprises.

Taste: It starts with vanilla, the salted fruits (melon and pear) and is oily. All the flavors intensify towards the middle. He quickly increases in sharpness, dances on the tongue. Delivers peppery aromas and some tannins. In the background there is a combination of tar and petroleum.
The finish is medium-long and spicy, with vegetables, vanilla and peppery notes, somewhat medicinal. The wood is not overly present, as is so often the case with Fiji Rum.

Aftertaste: oil, pepper, vanilla, salted fruits (pear and melon)

Overall rating: 91 points

Conclusion: A very good and typical Fiji Pot Still Rum as it should be. It doesn't have a unique point, but it is nicely balanced, strong and also has intense aromas.

Sweetness: 1/5
Vegetables: 3/5
Spice: 3.5 / 5
PL (160 €) 2.5 / 5

Thank You Rhum Attitude for providing a solid rum tasting during the 19th month of global lockdown. Tasting continued onwards with SBS Fiji 18y 2002. Solid and sturdy bottle and label design. Golden color. Very strong pepper to your nose followed up with extremely dry Fiji flavors focusing on grassy and floral notes to your nose and palate when neat sipped. Super dry ending. One of the best Fiji rums scores a solid 6.
