Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Rum tasting in Houston Texas continues onwards with Plantation Isle of Fiji. Traditional Plantation style bottle and label design. Golden color. Plenty of glue hits you straight in the face. Weird mixture of the low end Plantation sweetness in the background. Rather awful experience when Plantation can do so much better rums.
Keeping in mind the price point here, for what you get this is great. Possible to drink straight and that’s says quite a bit for the cost. Pick up a bottle, keep it in your bar, throw it in your Mai Tai. Decent intro rum as well.
This rum is a very good one. Fruity, tasty and not to heavy, it smells very nice and it taste much better. And in the coke it’s one of the best. 8++
I’ll take another one. Cheers!!
40% ABV Fiji rum, aged for 3 years tropically in Fiji in bourbon barrels and then 1 year continentally in France in cognac barrels. I've always really liked its colourful label.
Bottle: The classic but more bulbous Plantation
Nose: Very pleasant, reminiscent of Jamaican rums. Smells of overripe fruit (mainly banana), grilled pineapple, a little estery, dark chocolate and nutmeg.
Mouth: Sweetish with a slight burn on the tongue. Unfortunately, it's a bit more watery and less intense. There is vanilla, chocolate, tropical fruits (banana, pineapple), honey and wood.
Finish: Rather shorter.
Conclusion: This is such a lighter and sweeter type of rum where the aroma is more interesting than the taste. It's not bad, but it didn't impress me in any fundamental way.
Nothing special when sipped. Maybe floral flavors, but very strong with the afterburn. Mixed doesn’t help much. 4.5-5.0
It’s good and the taste is different to other runs that I have tasted (can’t really point my finger at why), just not my style.
