This has a nice balance, as a sipper pretty clean. Has a typical Plantation taste which I enjoy, a bit sweeter than non Fiji style. I don't see this too often at stores, grab it if you see it, worth a try for sure
Nice and dry. Some nice brown butter and burnt caramel hints. Cognac really pulls through in a good way. Sip this while you eat a snickerdoodle.
After the Barbados 2005 this is a nice surprise. Where the bourbon age was missing in the previous bottle, this completely makes up for it. It has a nice soft but well aimed kick to it. For the Plantation night this is curently best.
I have to say that I was impressed with this rum, I really enjoyed it. I had a few other drinks before so I wasn’t really focused in getting all the nuances but I had it neat and I had a great experience. I will have it again next time with more calm and observation.
what's the smell? like glue,paint not possible to drink.same of mine money.
but after the bottle was open and let the rum breath it was a complete other rum.
my experience take a bigger glas and let it breath for 10 minutes ,theres a nicer smell and a beter tasting. i have to put my ranking from 2 to 7.cheers
This rum is so worth it I can buy 2 bottles for the price of another that's just as good. It's a great find for your bar. Nobody complains! The XO obviously is doused with sugar, which I can't complain since sugar is the base ingredient. This rum has, if any, minimum sugar added. I believe it's a great find!
There's something about the sharpness of this blend that makes it slightly off-putting to me at first. A very cutting, astringent, unripe fruit flavor is the first blast, which gradually yields to a lightly sweet, bright sugar-topped citrus flavor alongside a moderate alcohol burn. The finish is quite long, though not overly distinct in flavor.
This rum REALLY benefits from a short sit and a few drops of water. This stuff has an edge that, combined with its higher ABV, makes it less approachable than the new Isle of Fiji release.
Normally, "fruity" would not be a compliment for a rum, but here it is. This is the only Fijian rum I've tried, so perhaps it's representative of the style. Very different from Caribbean rums, and, to my mind, not nearly as complex and well-balanced as they are. Good and unique, but it simply does not have enough substance to challenge similarly-priced Caribbean or South American rums.
