“Blind I would never have thought of Fiji from the nose, rather Jamaica high Ester. Brutal stuff, full in the face glue, red berries, tangerine and a whole mouthful of old leather bicycle chair 🤣and bicycle tube but especially leather is blatantly dominant. in ne very perverse way unfortunately really horny with an eternal finish and makes surprisingly fun to drink despite the high age and alcohol content.I am once again similar to the recently released Hampden extremely flashed that such a quality again from the house Plantation comes on the market!Definitely one of the best Fiji rums to date!At the 2nd tasting, the typical burnt bicycle tube aroma is almost too much for me! Nevertheless, a blatant device as far as Fiji is concerned! "Tastes like you're burning your bike and then eat ne horny dark chocolate mousse with red fruit jelly, plus bissl salty banana chipsAber your whole face is full of burnt rubber" 🤣🌋🚲🔥”

“Nez bourré d'esters. En bouche, les esters sont complétés par du fruit et un caramel. Puissance. Funky. Un petit côté sale. La finale amène une sensation de cuir brûlé. C'est top. Vraiment bien fait. Édit : puissant. Mais rudement bon.”
