Now, I will try to be as levelheaded as possible about this one, but it will be hard, because this was horrible. I love a Bounty now and then, but a rum that tastes like a liquid Bounty gets a hard pass from me.

Nose: Coconut, chocolate and simple syrup
Taste: Coconut, chocolate, simple syrup, coconut, coconut and sugar
Overall: This is just to sweet. After a sip or two I passed it on to my girlfriend (major sugar junkie), and she was almost unable to finish it, which to me is a indicator of a rum, that have lost it ways and have become more of a syrup, than a liqueur.

Karamellfarbenes Mahagoni im Glas.
In der Nase extrem süss nach Kokos, Karamell, Schokolade, Orangen- und Zitronen Schalen. Dahinter kann man noch wage den ursprünglichen Rum erkennen mit Frucht und Holz Düften.
Im Gaumen süss wie Sirup, Kokos, Karamell, Schokolade.... Bounty ! (yes, Rasmus) Aber auch rote Beeren, Zitrusfrüchte, Honig, geschmorte Bananen...….
Im Abgang lang und klebrig süss, Schokolade, Kokos und Karamell klingen lange nach.
Ein sehr süsser Liqueur (Zuckerbombe) der durchaus Spass macht. Als Dessert oder zum Nichtstun, für Liqueur- und Süssrum Liebhaber.

Caramel-coloured mahogany in the glass.
In the nose extremely sweet to coconut, caramel, chocolate, orange and lemon peel. Behind it you can still see the original rum with fruit and wood scents.
In the palate sweet like syrup, coconut, caramel, chocolate.... Bounty ! (yes, Rasmus) But also red berries, citrus fruits, honey, braised bananas.....
In the finish long and sticky sweet, chocolate, coconut and caramel linger for a long time.
A very sweet liqueur (sugar bomb) that is a lot of fun. As dessert or for doing nothing, for liqueur- and sweetrum lovers.

It can perfume whole room and give it a chocolate smell, however taste is horrendous. It is just oversweetened water but the background taste still gives me shakes when drinking it.

A Fijian rum that when it got to 8 years old the maker's decided to turn it into a liqueur ??? what the hell for ?? The 5yr old was perfectly acceptable so you would think an 8yr old version would be even tastier..
Obviously not ! The rum has had ingredients added to make it taste like dark chocolate , coffee , coconut and orange zest. It's very sweet but would make a nice after dinner treat , im guessing would be nice over ice cream. Only 35% but still has a bit of a kick..
Made from sugar cane and harvested on Fiji , filtered through coconut shell charcoal then aged in charred oak barrels for 8 years before being adulterated !! Again , why ?

Extremely sweet and caramely. Like honey and caramel, maybe a bit of orange peel there too. And add some vanilla and chocolate. 24 rums collection with S.

Kraftig duft sprittet smage. Middelmådig rum der ikke gøre meget væsen af sig.

Is it really a rum? Offered great aroma but very little else other than intense sweetness. Knocked first one back but suffered thru the second.

This is a nice rum over ice, which is how I drink it. I like most of the Fijian rums and this one too; but it is very sweet and just at the end of the taste palette there a funny chemically taste. As another reviewer says why add flavouring to an 8 year old rum. At $67 AUD its not cheap either. I am unsure whether I will buy this again, its a case of I like it; but then I don't?

Yes buy this, tastey. You can really taste the vanilla and flavours of this buy buy buy

Enjoyed some Ratu 8y Rum while vacationing in Melbourne. Rather nice bottle and label design. Mahogany color. Coconut and chocolate to the nose and palate. Mild burn at the end being so sweet. Hard to mix this one up and too sweet to be neat sipped.
