A bold, fruity, and smoky rum with hints of butter, tropical fruits, and slight floral notes. Despite its high ABV, it's surprisingly smooth, though some find it lacks complexity. A good blend of intensity and elegance for its age.

“Überraschend würzig, röstig und holzbetont für nur 9y alt. Typische Fahrradschlauch-Gummi und röstaromatik kombiniert mit verbranntem Holz, Mokka, dunklem Kakao, Salzlake und etwas Papaya und Banane, sowie Muskatnuss. Solides Ding und Alkohol gut eingebunden aber insgesamt könnte hier mehr Komplexität sein und vor allem mehr Frucht.”

“What do you get when blending Jamaican rum, young Guyana pot still and Isla whisky, all continental aged? Right! Let’s do 5 Fijians. SBS 2009 57% Rasta Morris 2009 60,5% Old Brothers 2011 59,1% Old Brothers 2009 63,3% The Nectar 2009 60,5% C: Light gold. N: How can butter be delicious in rum? How can mild olive oil be delicious in rum? Esters, granny apples, celery (without the tough strings), cucumbers, green grapes and phenols. And this is a new one “sweet pepino”, and no, that’s not a blend of sugar and cucumber, it’s a fruits I used to eat when little. Also known as melon pear. M: Smoky and in-your-face but believe me, elegant for such a young Fijian. What a rum! Lots of lime and pineapple. F: Short but nice. B: Can someone sell me a bottle or two please. Mine is almost finish.”
