What a lovely rum. Very close to the typical flavours of Fiji actually. Fruity and warm with some nuty wood and very light spices. The finish is long with plastic/rubber in the background. A pretty complex rum in my mind and may may not like it.

War lange meine Fiji Referenz - der 2009er ist nach 2001 bisher de beste Jahrgang. Weiterhin ein Top Rum - der IdR 2001 ist nur noch etwas besser. Die tropischen Früchte, die man manchmal findet hat dieser bis auf eine präsente Banane und einem Hauch Zitrone weniger, dafür ist er stark auf der vegetabilen Seite und das typische Gummi oder Taucheranzug-artige ist super eingebunden: in Lösungsmittel aufgelöster Bioabfall. Insgesamt sind Fijis für mich im Mund oft stärker als in der Nase. Hier ist die Nase ist bereits ausdrucksstark, ohne das Verwechslungsgefahr mit Jamaika bestünde. Das Pflanzliche ist auch ganz anders als bei einem Agricole, eher fermentiert, verrottend als frisch, grasig. Die harzigen Kräuter aus dem Abgang bleiben lange erhalten.

Eine schöne Komplexe Geschichte. Vielleicht nicht ganz rund aber dafür interessant. Während die Nase eher an Heimwerken und Baumarkt erinnert gibt's am Gaumen viel Frucht und auch schöne florale Akzente. Im Finish dann Pfeffer, eher röstig bis trocken und dann auch etwas stechend und von der Frucht bleibt am Ende nicht viel. Aber allein wegen der Komplexität ne schöne Abfüllung.

In der Nase ist der Alkohol doch recht präsent. Am Gaumen dann aber butterweich. Der tolle Geschmack verflüchtigt sich jedoch recht schnell im Abgang. Unterm Strich trotzdem ein sehr guter Rum!

Plastik, Olive und reife Banane. Geil! Alkohol sehr gut integriert, ausgewogen, spannend. Knusprig im Mund, nochmals eine Ladung Banane mit Plastik überbacken. Sicherlich kein Easy Sipper, eine sehr interessante Sache allemal.

Pas formidable. Bon rhum, surtout au nez mais en bouche alcool super présent, ça pique la langue... Ça manque de parfums, de fruits. Bref c'est bon mais sans plus pour moi.

guter Fiji, jedoch auch mit einer gewissen alkoholischen Schärfe, sowohl am Gaumen als auch an der Nase. Ein paar Tropfen Wasser bringen deutlichen Zugewinn.

Angenehm weich. Recht kurzer Abgang.

Keine gute Einbindung des Alkohol. In der Nase Birne und Kamillentee, Zitrusfrüchte im Geschmack und Abgang die vom Alkohol stark überlagert werden.

Enjoyable run from Fiji, not the best that IN’s have to offer but a good representation of South Pacific Distillery. Feel it could be better balanced and doesn’t have the huge aromatic nose other rums from this distillery have. A good contender for a single Bsrrel rum from South Pacific.
