Another regional offering from Plantation. At only 9 years aged it is still a very good rum to drink neat.
Buttery vanilla, soft caramel, toasted coconut and pineapple.
A 2009 vintage Fijian rum from the Plantation range, produced by the South Pacific distillery and bottled as part of the Plantation range. It was initially matured in bourbon casks for 7 years before being shipped over to France for a for a finishing period in Cognac casks for a further 2 years.
Distilled (pot and column) in 2009 and aged for 7 years in Fiji in Bourbon barrels followed by the typical 2 years in France. Bottled at 44.8% ABV.
Ah yes, that varnish-y Fijian nose. Lots of high notes. But very well aged. It's nicely tamed and fairly balanced. Nail polish with vanillin. Pineapple. Label says prickly pear. Very good; lots of fun. Medium but fun finish. I like it a lot!
