A rum that when first opened was fairly easy to drink.
However as time passed, the flavours became overpowering. Now it still works well with ginger beer.

On ice, such a nice flavour, also smell great.
Issue is keep drinking it like a juice!

Not unpleasant but not for me, more a chocolate liquor taste than a normal rum.

Like others have said, it is a sweeter rum more like a syrupy liquor. Has the taste of coffee within, like Kahlua, possibly some chocolates notes as well. Not bad neat, but may be good with some mixers as well. It’s easy to drink.

Karamellfarbenes Mahagoni im Glas.
In der Nase extrem süss nach Kokos, Karamell, Schokolade, Orangen- und Zitronen Schalen. Dahinter kann man noch wage den ursprünglichen Rum erkennen mit Frucht und Holz Düften.
Im Gaumen süss wie Sirup, Kokos, Karamell, Schokolade.... Bounty ! (yes, Rasmus) Aber auch rote Beeren, Zitrusfrüchte, Honig, geschmorte Bananen...….
Im Abgang lang und klebrig süss, Schokolade, Kokos und Karamell klingen lange nach.
Ein sehr süsser Liqueur (Zuckerbombe) der durchaus Spass macht. Als Dessert oder zum Nichtstun, für Liqueur- und Süssrum Liebhaber.

Caramel-coloured mahogany in the glass.
In the nose extremely sweet to coconut, caramel, chocolate, orange and lemon peel. Behind it you can still see the original rum with fruit and wood scents.
In the palate sweet like syrup, coconut, caramel, chocolate.... Bounty ! (yes, Rasmus) But also red berries, citrus fruits, honey, braised bananas.....
In the finish long and sticky sweet, chocolate, coconut and caramel linger for a long time.
A very sweet liqueur (sugar bomb) that is a lot of fun. As dessert or for doing nothing, for liqueur- and sweetrum lovers.

Got this in a rum advent calendar and whilst most of them smelt and tasted very similar this was a pleasant change.

Really sweet coconut and chocolate taste/smelling liquer. At 35% vol this could get messy as it's too easy to drink.

Very nice liqueur style of rum. If you are looking for a soft, vanilla, cocoa rum, it is a good choice.

It can perfume whole room and give it a chocolate smell, however taste is horrendous. It is just oversweetened water but the background taste still gives me shakes when drinking it.

A Fijian rum that when it got to 8 years old the maker's decided to turn it into a liqueur ??? what the hell for ?? The 5yr old was perfectly acceptable so you would think an 8yr old version would be even tastier..
Obviously not ! The rum has had ingredients added to make it taste like dark chocolate , coffee , coconut and orange zest. It's very sweet but would make a nice after dinner treat , im guessing would be nice over ice cream. Only 35% but still has a bit of a kick..
Made from sugar cane and harvested on Fiji , filtered through coconut shell charcoal then aged in charred oak barrels for 8 years before being adulterated !! Again , why ?

Although by definition a liqueur and not a standard “ rum” this stuff is why I have so many unfinished bottles of other rum. Sure the Dictator, Diplamatico and top shelf stuff all goes, but the Ratu stands alone, and unfortunately the issue is with this rum that once the cap comes off, it rarely ends up back on before it quickly evaporates. The grazes and cuts on elbows and knees, the gastric ulcer, marriage counselling, early onset dementia, blackouts and gout are a small price to pay for the almost religious experience of being able to attain states of advanced refreshment with this titan of the rum world. There is not a rum drinker I know, and even some of those strange folk that don’t like rum, that have tried Ratu and not been stricken with the immediate need to drink more. A lot more. It may be so good it is actually evil. That is why I only gave it 9/10, just in case it has got some kind of supernatural omen in every bottle that makes you want it. The only reason I go to work now is to buy more. Try it if ye dare, and at thine own peril!
