Nase: ahh, super fruchtig und wenn man es nicht weiß, merkt man von Whiskyfinish nix. Wegen der starken Verdünnung kann man tief ins Glas hineinriechen ohne dass der Alkohol zwickt. Der Gaumen spiegelt die Eindrücke der Nase fast 1:1 wider. Hier merke ich den Einfluss des Whiskyfinish deutlicher. Nachklang ist lang und harmoniert mit Nase und Gaumen. Eine sehr gute Abfüllung. Ich hätte diesen Rum aber gerne weniger bzw. nicht verdünnt Probiert - das wäre mit Sicherheit eine ganz andere Hausnummer!

Habe die Turicum-Abfüllung probiert. Gutes schönes Bouquet. Abgang hält gut an: Mischung aus Whisky und Rum. Gute Komplexität und gutes PLV. Aber weit entfernt von anderen 2001 Fiji Jahrgängen. Irgendwie Assoziationen eines marinierten asiatischen Geflügelspiesses vom Kohlengrill.

2001 Fiji, which is still the best fiji year, tropical aged for 19 years. What can went wrong? So a finish could mess it up. And yes, it is a Plantation, so I had expected it will be a mess. But a 2001 Fiji, i had to buy - no way out. There is not much nose but not bad either. Taste is flat, mostly you get the finish, but not in a complex way. A rather simple rum. Far away from TRC 2001, SBS 2009 or TCL 2014. Plantation should be sentenced for that, if you think about the other Fijis from 2001. But if you like an easy sipper sweet Whisky with some rummy taste, it will do it.

Fruchtig, fast schon süßer Fiji Rum, der durch Finish in ex-Whiskyfässern etwas eingebremst wird. Die rauchigen Aromen des französischen Whiskys hinterlassen ein stimmigeres Gefühl als die selten gelungenen Islay Whisky Finishes. Der Rum ist ein Chamäleon und jeder Tag endet mit anderen Ergebnis. Vermutlich sollte man in ein paar Monaten nochmal probieren, er scheint mit Sauerstoff stark zu reagieren.

Le nez est intéressant, mais le reste est trop marqué par le whisky, on y perd le fun du Fiji, et finale bien trop courte. Ça reste agréable et facile à boire, mais je suis moyennement emballé.
