Swell de Spirits South Pacific Wild Nature Series N°1 2014 9yr 66,1%

RX17122 Very good Pot Still Rum Single Cask 360 bottles Under 250€

The Wild Nature Series N°1 by Swell de Spirits, crafted at the South Pacific distillery in Fiji, offers a complex and evolving flavor profile. Aromas of citrus, ester, rubber, banana, and red fruits set the stage. The palate delivers notes of banana, wood, vanilla, caramel, and spice. This 2014 pot-still rum, aged 9 years and bottled at a potent 66.1% ABV, is praised for its fruity richness, smoky undertones, and herbal hints. While some noted its bold and fiery finish, a few drops of water can mellow its intensity. Limited to just 360 bottles, this rum is a standout for collectors and connoisseurs alike, embodying the essence of Fiji’s distinct high-ester rum profile with a touch of refinement and adventure.

“Edit Edit: had another one in the glass at the Swell Masterclass. A really great Fiji. Edit: In the comparison test with other Fiji, this one is in the top third in my opinion and is one of the best Fiji bottlings I've had in a glass. Evaluated quickly when bottling. I like it quite well at first glance. But will have to compete against other Fiji again.”

“28.03.2024 Retasting at Swell de Spirits Masterclass and I stick to my score. ------------------------ #4524 14.12.2023 When looking at the price tag you get a lot for your money with this release. Very refreshing with fruit and a nice marzipan touch. On top of that a nice natural sweetness. The palate is oily and has a light herbal touch to it. The finish is long and warm with a light citrus note. ABV very well integrated. Don't leave for too long in the glass or it goes "bad".”

“The first impression on the nose is very fruity (unripe banana!), followed by spice and barrel notes, very intense! On the palate I clearly notice the approx. 66% alcohol and the spicy and woody aromas come more to the fore. The finish is dominated by barrel notes, slight bitterness, spice and only then the fruit. Very good rum, a little sharp-edged in my opinion, but it brings out the South Pacific profile well.”
