First taste very sweet: toffe, vanilla. But finish rather dry and dark chocolate.
Interesting position :)

Surprisingly strong, the 10 more ABV makes a huge difference! Very sweet, toffee, sugars, butter.

I have a sweetspot for this rum, long lasting taste and flavour journy from sweet fruity to a little herbaceously funky.

Opäť obal za 100 bodov. Pre mňa jeden z najlepších zo série. Karamel, sud, čokoláda, citrusy, vanilka a jemne tabak. Pocitovo sladší ale mne veľmi chutil!

A bit more bite than others with a bit longer after taste but solid, light nose,, semi smooth going down

The Plantation One Time Limited Fiji is a molasses rum which was distilled in 2005 in the Triple Column style and then first stored for 14 years in 200l bourbon barrels tropical and another 1 year continental in 400l cognac barrels. The rum was bottled with 50.2% alcohol. It is not sweetened. Plantation gives a lot of information on the bottle, which I find absolutely exemplary. As always, the bottles look very handsome.

In the nose the first surprise. Where is the Fiji Rum? But the nose is not bad. Wood and bourbon notes harmonize with beautiful fruit and caramel. But Fiji typical ester notes are missing. On the palate, the rum is pleasant to drink. A good balance of dry wood and light fruit notes.alIt becomes more wood with some bitter notes. The finish is dry and some alcohol resonates. Here the rum is a bit thin. And Fiji far away.

A good rum that disappoints at the same time. Here, the typical plantation problem is that the bottler is probably too well behaved for Fiji. It is not a pot still and therefore naturally explainable. However, I expect more from this headline. I'm glad I don't have a bottle. A Sample is enough.

Der Plantation One Time Limited Fiji ist ein Melasse Rum welcher 2005 im Triple Column Stil distilliert wurden und dann zunächst 14 Jahre in 200l Bourbon Fässern tropisch und noch einmal 1 Jahr kontinental in 400l Cognac Fässern gelagert wurde. Der Rum wurde mit 50,2% Alkohol abgefüllt. Er ist nicht gesüßt. Plantation gibt super viele Information auf der Flasche mit, was ich absolut Vorbildlich finde. Dazu sehen die Flaschen wie immer sehr ansehnlich aus.

In der Nase die erste Überraschung. Wo ist der Fiji Rum. Die Nase ist dabei nicht schlecht. Holz und Bourbon Noten harmonieren mit schöner Frucht und Karamel. Aber Fiji typische Ester Noten fehlen. Am Gaumen ist der Rum angenehm zu trinken. Eine gute Balance von trockenen Holz- und leichten Fruchtnoten. Aber viel Holz mit etwas Bitternoten. Der Abgang ist trocken und etwas Alkohol schwingt mit. Hier ist der Rum etwas dünn. Und Fiji weit weg.

Ein guter Rum der gleichzeitig enttäuscht. Hier ist das typische Plantation Problem, dass der Abfüller für Fiji wahrscheinlich zu brav ist. Es ist kein Pot Still und daher natürlich erklärbar. Trorzdem erwarte ich bei der Überschrift mehr. Ich bin froh das ich keine Flasche habe.

Sweeter rums are more to my liking, but this one is still nice with it's herb, spice and quite dry taste. A cold winter nights drink to warm up.

Bold, strong flavors. Aromatic, good mixed with juices or neat
