TRC South Pacific Fiji 2001 18yr 55,7%

RX479 Very good Pot Still Rum Under 100€
“Exotic nose, tropical flavors, complex palate, balanced, excellent daily sipper.”

The "Fiji" 2001 rum by The Rum Cask, produced at the South Pacific distillery, offers an exotic and distinctive profile. With a vibrant bouquet of tropical fruit, pure vanilla, and medicinal esters, it transports you to a tropical island. The palate is a rich mix of spicy, herbal, and vegetal notes complemented by hints of new plastics, grapefruit, and banana. A touch of mint and tobacco adds complexity, while the long finish reveals chocolate, spices, and subtle roasted flavors. Ideal for enthusiasts of complex and robust rums, the 18-year aging process lends it a rounded character, although some find the alcohol presence slightly pronounced. Perfect for those seeking a unique, island-inspired rum experience.

“RumX Fidji 2001 Cross Tasting: For me the last place in the line-up (blind). While this is by no means a bad bottling, it lacks some of the complexity of the other bottlings. The 01 Fidji profile is there (and nice) but some excitement (fruity notes in particular) is missing. Cheers to Jakob!”

“Fiji 2001 Community Tasting – großen Dank an Jakob für’s organisieren dieser Blindverkostung. Ein toller Vintage und ein Vergleich nicht ohne Überraschung. Schlusslichter waren für mich die beiden Rum Artesanal, die ich beide nicht ausgetrunken habe. Besonders störend war eine unangenehme Wachholder Fehlnote (stark ausgeprägt beim rx15398 etwas besser aber noch störend beim rx7779). Dann für mich als eigentliches Schlusslicht (also sehr gut / mit den richtigen Markern), aber eben nicht so toll, wie die anderen) der Rum Cask rx479. Überaschenderweise landed auf dem nächsten Platz für mich der Isla del Ron, der ja schon einen kleinen Referenz-Tatus in meinem Herzen hat, seit ich ihn probiert habe. Aber er wurde im Blindtest überholt vom leckeren Whisky Jury (rx13025) und dann vom sensationelle. cave Guildive (rx1717). Der Cave Guildive stellt für mich den Sieger des klassischen Fiji 2002 Profils dar und ist wirklich top. Höher bewertet habe ich dann nur noch den Flag LMDW Antipodes (rx13440) … dieser ist dann deutlich holziger aber auch ultralecker. Der war auch blind klar erkennbar und machte das Photofinish Millimeter hinter dem Plantation rx11133, der wohl auch so herausgestochen ist, weil er so un-Fiji2001 war und eine tolle Kleber-Karamel Guyana Nase hat. Fazit: Typische Fiji Sieger sind der Cave Guildive auf der fruchtig-Honig-feelgood-Seite und der Flag auf der holzigen. der Plantation ist der Wildcard Sieger. Die beiden RA Abfüllung sind die beider, die weit unter dem Niveau der anderen beiden bleiben.”
