The Rum Cask
Distilled: 2001

Aged 15 Years
59.3%
Pot Still Rum
Country of origin: Fiji

Color: Gold

Nose:
Intensive and bold, exotic with a sweet fruitiness.
Pears, overripe bananas and plum juice.
Quite a lot of olive oil with a whiff of caramel and smoke in the background.
Complex and tasty!

Taste:
Powerful and bold, fruity, complex and very spicy.
Spices include pepper and aniseed. Then there is smoked beer, olive oil and varnish.
I must admit that I find the taste to be slightly unpleasant.

Long and dry with herbal and black tea aromas.

Summary:
Very interesting and complex rum. Unfortunately I find the taste to slightly unpleasant, otherwise I would have rated it even higher.

My version: 18y 2001 - 2019
It tastes like a typical and natural Fiji rum.
It's intensive with typical aromas. I can't determine something special.

Nose: ester, citrus, fermented vegetables (tomatoes), salt, white oak/vanilla
Taste: ester, fruits (salted papaya and canned vegetables), some bitterness, white oak with vanilla
Finish: spice, citrus with salt and some bitterness, white oak
Nice aftertaste with fruits

Sweetness: 1.5/5
Fruit: 3/5
Spice: 2.5/5
Mildness: 3.5/5

The bad news is you can't find it anymore.
There are some similitudes to some jamaican rums = "dirty", plastic, olive, briny, say "heavy" ... but it is still a bit different, this is not a jamaican copying. More complex and changing I would say. A very good surprise to me.
Caution - forget it if you are into sweetened rons, this is something completely different.
