“Typical Fiji profile. Fruity, honey, some caroni dirtiness. Delicious on the palate, balanced and yet with power.”

“RumX Fidji 2001 Cross Tasting: As opener of the line-up this one was very nice right from the start. Well balanced and reasonably complex representation of the vintage with all you can hope for. In the end this one placed in the middle of the pack. Side-by-side it lacks a bit of punch and excitement compared to others in the line-up. But make no mistake: this is very good in its own right. Cheers to Jakob!”

“Fiji 2001 Community Tasting – großen Dank an Jakob für’s organisieren dieser Blindverkostung. Ein toller Vintage und ein Vergleich nicht ohne Überraschung. Schlusslichter waren für mich die beiden Rum Artesanal, die ich beide nicht ausgetrunken habe. Besonders störend war eine unangenehme Wachholder Fehlnote (stark ausgeprägt beim rx15398 etwas besser aber noch störend beim rx7779). Dann für mich als eigentliches Schlusslicht (also sehr gut / mit den richtigen Markern), aber eben nicht so toll, wie die anderen) der Rum Cask rx479. Überaschenderweise landed auf dem nächsten Platz für mich der Isla del Ron, der ja schon einen kleinen Referenz-Tatus in meinem Herzen hat, seit ich ihn probiert habe. Aber er wurde im Blindtest überholt vom leckeren Whisky Jury (rx13025) und dann vom sensationelle. cave Guildive (rx1717). Der Cave Guildive stellt für mich den Sieger des klassischen Fiji 2002 Profils dar und ist wirklich top. Höher bewertet habe ich dann nur noch den Flag LMDW Antipodes (rx13440) … dieser ist dann deutlich holziger aber auch ultralecker. Der war auch blind klar erkennbar und machte das Photofinish Millimeter hinter dem Plantation rx11133, der wohl auch so herausgestochen ist, weil er so un-Fiji2001 war und eine tolle Kleber-Karamel Guyana Nase hat. Fazit: Typische Fiji Sieger sind der Cave Guildive auf der fruchtig-Honig-feelgood-Seite und der Flag auf der holzigen. der Plantation ist der Wildcard Sieger. Die beiden RA Abfüllung sind die beider, die weit unter dem Niveau der anderen beiden bleiben.”
