Eine Plantation Limited Edition eines Stiggins' Fancy Pineapple Rum der in einem Teeling Irish Whiskey Fass (200 Liter) nachreifen durfte.
Goldenes Bernstein im Glas.
In der Nase süss und weich. Mmm lecker, über dem Lagerfeuer geröstete Ananas die schon leicht karamellisieren. Das Feuer ist bald erloschen, ein kleines Räuchlein steigt noch auf.
Am Gaumen fruchtig und süffig. Ananas ist auch hier die absolute Dominanz, schön fruchtig erfrischend, wie frisch aufgeschnitten und mit Rum serviert. Die Süsse wird durch das Teeling finish wunderbar gebrochen.
Im Abgang lang und lecker. Die Ananas bleibt fast ewig, verschwindet dann aber langsam im Whiskey Fass.
Bevorzuge diesen Gegenüber dem "normalen" Stiggins' Fancy, das Teeling Fass bringt noch den richtigen Kick. Passt super zu einer Zigarre deiner Wahl. Für Abenteurer, Entdecker, Barkeeper und Viktoria Ananas Liebhaber.
A Plantation Limited Edition of a Stiggins' Fancy Pineapple Rum that was allowed to re-age in a Teeling Irish Whiskey barrel (200 liters).
Golden amber in the glass.
Sweet and smooth on the nose. Mmm delicious, over the campfire roasted pineapple which already slightly caramelize. The fire is soon extinguished, a little smoke still rising.
Fruity and quaffable on the palate. Pineapple is the absolute dominator here as well, beautifully fruity refreshing, like freshly sliced and served with rum. The sweetness is wonderfully broken by the Teeling finish.
Long and delicious on the finish. The pineapple lingers almost forever, but then slowly disappears into the whiskey barrel.
Prefer this to the "normal" Stiggins' Fancy, the Teeling barrel still brings the right kick. Goes great with a cigar of your choice. For adventurers, explorers, bartenders and Victoria pineapple lovers.
Tasted from Lisa's stash, imported from Indiana. August 28 2023
Aroma: pineapple upside down cake but on fire 🔥
Flavor: smokey pineapple. This is a rum that is what is advertised. The smoke flavor comes through in the middle then recedes. I'm enjoying this much more than I expected.
Good, but not too different from the regular version. Worth trying if you really like that one.
Aromas of pineapple, caramel, oak, banana and sweet tropical fruits. Flavors of pineapple, caramel, smoke, ripe banana and barrel. Well rounded, flavorful, great sipper
In the bottle purchased at Total Wine Burnsville MN. Looks and smells like regular Stiggins. The flavor has a much more balanced pineapple than reg stig. The smoke is not at all overwhelming and is best detected at the finish. A nice cloying drying smoke. A bit of black pepper is balance with the fruity sweetness. The perfect balance of flavors is the draw here. We’ll mixed.
Bought this as a sipper. A little thin. Not smoky or pineappley. Didn’t want as pineappley as regular Stiggins fancy but this to me is weak flavored.
It is a light rum, a touch sweet too. The aroma is restrained (opens with water), though there is a clear sweet toasted fruit note. Taste is sweet and mildly spicy, and mouthfeel is full.
The smokiness and pineapple character come out when the rum is diluted or evaporated. It works well in simple mixes with ginger ale/beer, soda water, and cola. It could probably get used in a calculated way for cocktails.
Compared to other pineapple rums I've tried this tends to pack the pineapple punch all on its own. When used to add a dash of pineapple flavor to a drink in addition to another rum this works just fine though the pineapple flavor can get a bit lost in other stronger notes. I use it in a pineapple strawberry daiquiri and it has just enough pineapple to pop through the backend of the strawberry before giving way to the main rum being used (Plantation 3 Star in my case here).
Recipe for those who want it:
Pineapple Strawberry Daiquiri
1.5oz (45ml) Saison Pale Rum (Plantation 3 Star)
.5oz (15ml) Stiggins fancy (Plantation Pineapple)
3/4oz (22ml) Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice
3/4oz (22ml) Simple Syrup (I used homemade 2:1 demerara simple)
Half Strawberry Garnish
Maybe I just don't taste the smoke because I am used to heavily peated whiskies? No clue. Vanilla and pineapple. I give this 8/10 because I love pineapple.
