How does this rum taste?

A refreshing yet potent Fijian rum, the SMF charms with its balance of citrus and mint alongside a symphony of pineapple, coconut, and light licorice notes. Its elegant nose outshines a simpler palate, but it delights with its sweet and spicy finish.

“Un rhum déroutant. Le nez est d’abord assez timide, montrant d’ailleurs des signes d’alcool ainsi que de légères notes de fût, d’épices et de caramel. L’aération fait apparaître un côté plus beurré, plus funky, mais aussi beaucoup plus de fruits, allant des agrumes (citron) aux fruits tropicaux (ananas, noix de coco). Un profil olfactif rond, moelleux, presque crémeux. Si jusque-là le profil était intéressant, le palais va cependant en prendre un coup. Le côté funky du nez disparaît quasiment (la note de colle arrive tardivement) au profit d’une sorte de Foursquare bis et alcoolique au possible : noix de coco, caramel, toffee, biscuit, épices douces (vanille, poivre) fruits secs et notes toastées sont de la partie, créant un bide assez tonitruant en bouche. Pour couronner le tout, l’alcool n’est pas bien intégré, il en est même une des saveurs principales. Un véritable revers de bâton après un nez pourtant prometteur. La finale, assez longue, ne donne guère plus d’attrait que le palais. Un peu d’épices, de notes fumées et de cuir qui viennent concurrencer les notes douces et la noix de coco fortement dosée en alcool. Clairement pas la référence dans le monde des rhums fidjiens, ni pour son embouteilleur.”

“Mixture between Belize and Foursquare. From Fiji is missing here almost everything. But no matter the part is good😋 roasted chocolate notes, leather, coffee beans, dried fruit. Delicious”
