South Pacific Plantation Fiji 2009 9yr 44,8%

RX31 Good Pot & Column Still Rum Under 50€
“Smooth, fruity, with a sweet woody charm. Enticingly complex finish.”

The Plantation Fiji is a distinctive rum produced in Fiji at the South Pacific distillery and selected and bottled by independent bottler Maison Ferrand. Distilled in 2009 from molasses using a Pot and Column Still and aged for 9 years, it has an ABV of 44.8%. With ester, fruity, smoky, woody, and alcoholic notes in its aroma, this rum is found to be well-balanced with flavors of woody, alcoholic, spice, sweet, and vanilla. Our RumX community members describe it as having both Jamaican influences and the unique character of a Fiji rum, with some finding it highly accessible and enjoyable. Overall, this rum offers an interesting aroma followed by a mild and uneventful taste, making it good, but not outstanding.

“Some distraction from Fiji today: Very promising nose, followed by a mild but uneventful Rum. I somehow missed some of the fruit advertised by the nose. Good, but not special.”
