“Tropical, fruity rum with a harmonious whisky finish; pleasantly complex.”

Plantation Fiji Islands 2001 is a unique rum produced at the Fiji Rum & Co distillery and bottled by the independent bottler Maison Ferrand. Distilled using a Pot Still, this rum boasts an ABV of 45.8%. A delightful blend of aromas like banana, dried apricot, caramel, and tropical fruit give it a fruity nose, while the flavors of whiskey, smoky notes, tropical fruit, dark chocolate, and vanilla create a complex and enjoyable taste. Users praise its interesting and versatile profile, with some mentioning the influence of whiskey finish as a strong contributor to the overall experience. While some would have preferred it less diluted, this rum is overall well-regarded for its good complexity and value for money. A fine choice for both rum and whiskey enthusiasts looking for something different and enjoyable to add to their collection.

“Fiji 2001 is a promise of a good rum, not infrequently an excellent rum. Plantation has an exclusive pre-purchase deal with South Pacific and so there was reason to believe that Plantation offers here great for little money. Long story short: unfortunately, no. The rum is tame despite an estercount in the Wedderburn range. The typical herbal Fiji markers, which actually harmonize well with whiskey, can hardly unfold. Instead, there is a vanilla sweetness familiar from the 2004s. In the mouth, the whiskey is then very present and partly covers the actual flavors. As is so often the case, Plantation has probably not done very good raw material any favors with the finish and the dilution. This Fiji 2001 nevertheless remains a good rum.”

“Tasted the Turicum bottling. Good nice bouquet (toasty, burnt notes). Finish lasts well: Mixture of whiskey and rum. Good complexity and good PLV. But far from other 2001 Fiji vintages. Imagine if it had more volume 🙄although Cask Strength is indicated. Somehow associations of a marinated Asian chicken skewer from the charcoal grill.”
