„Tasted this blind for 1st Advent, quite sharp at first, which lead to funky fruity mix indictating a Jamaican. Surprise, it was not! 😏 It is said to have some citrus, which I missed completely though. 2cl sometimes ain't enough... I also expected this to be onmly slightly aged, it was 10 years, however.“

„#1. avent sample from the RumXCalendar. Blind tasting: Very interesting nose… it reminds me on a classic young hampden/jamaican, but in mouth it‘s very different. It lacks in the finish, really woody and smoky. Never thought this is from south pacific and has 10 years 🙈🙈 Nose: fruity, funky, pineapple, sweet, burnt sugar, citrus, ester. Mouth: solvents, fruit schnaps, roasted nuts, dark chocolate, spicy, liquorice. Finish: a lot of smoke, roasted, vanilla, oak.“

„1. Tag im RumX-Adventskalender. Fiji als Land direkt erkannt, die Abfüllung war in der näheren Auswahl, unter anderem wegen des hohen Alkoholgehalts. Sehr ölig, mit fetten Schlieren im Glas zeigt sich der Alkohol sowohl in der Nase als auch am Gaumen nicht gerade zurückhaltend. Ansonsten ist eine gewisse Kräutrigkeit in der Nase, die von etwas umgeben wird, das mich an getrocknete Orangenscheiben erinnert. Im Gaumen sind für mich etwas Holz und Nelke erwähnenswert, die eine enorme Trockenheit erzeugen. Fiji mag ich oft sehr, diese Abfüllung schafft es aber nicht in den engeren Kreis.“

„The prelude of the RumX Advent calendar. Coincidentally had some Blanton’s before this, which caused it to sit in the glass for a couple of hours before I could taste it. The smell changed quite a bit during this time: sharp in the beginning but as time passes notes of smokeyness with some meat on the grill strange enough. Sweet and savory flavours while the alcohol is integrated extremely well. First bottling from The Wild Parrot that I’ve ever had the pleasure of trying and I like it quite a bit. Looking forward to the rest of the experience in December.“

„Toller erster Einstieg in den Rumkalender. Passend zum 1. Advent bringt der Fiji eine schöne süße Nase nach Gebäck, Vanille und Zucker mit. Ebefalls gelbe Früchte und leichte Esternoten. Im Geschmack kommen nich junges Holz und Grasnoten dazu.“

„In der Nase wie ein frischer Agricole… am Gaumen eine nussige Note mit Lakritz! Der Abgang nussig/röstig! Ein für mich untypischer South Pacific Der Alkohol ist super eingebunden“

„RumX Kalender 2021 .... Erster Advent. Eher schwacher Fiji ... etwas langweilig! Alkohol nicht allzu gut eingebunden. Etwas Bitter und unausgereift für mich . Nase besser als am Gaumen .“

„RumX-Kalender, 1. Advent. Blind: eindeutig Fiji, hoher ABV >60, helle Farbe, daher jung Max. 10yo. Nase: gleich Klebstoff, gefolgt von etwas ölig-Graphit-mäßigem. Leicht Honig mit einem Hauch Mango. Sehr trockene, Jahre alte Orangen-Scheiben, etwas trockenes Kakao-Pulver, leicht vinegarer und etwas räucherig. Gaumen: trocken, Nelke, etwas Mango hinten raus, leicht kräuterig und wieder etwas Klebstoff und ölig Gaumen deutlich schwächer als die Nase. Nicht der beste Fiji, aber ok.“

„RumX Adventskalender 1. Advent: musste an den Hampden Overproof denken. Leicht funky. Das Mineralische erinnerte mich an Fiji. Recht lecker, aber Fiji von RA 2001 oder Isla del Ron 2001 sowie SBS 2009 sind deulich besser.“
