How does this rum taste?

A mellow Fiji rum with unexpected softness, tropical fruits, and spice. It offers a unique blend of chocolate, caramel, and a hint of mint, but lacks typical Fiji funkiness. Nice sipping experience, though it strays from traditional Fiji profiles.

“Un rhum fidjien relativement doux. Le nez évoque quelques saveurs médicinales qui sont loin de dominer les débats. Hormis une touche alcoolique perceptible, les fruits exotiques, le bois, le chocolat, les épices et les notes sucrées (caramel, sucre) forment un profil olfactif assez classique. L’attaque en bouche se veut plus incisive. On ressent une certaine lourdeur au palais et une texture sirupeuse. Le profil reste dominé par les saveurs boisées, le chocolat, les fruits exotiques, les épices, les noix et le caramel. L’alcool est bien intégré, même s’il ne passe pas complètement inaperçu. La longueur en bouche est correcte. On retrouve le calme du nez avec des saveurs similaires. À noter une chaleur et un côté toasté qui ne sont pas désagréables en fin de bouche. Un Single Cask tout à fait honorable en somme, mais qui manque d’expression et de profondeur pour être au top de sa catégorie, tant pour son terroir que pour son embouteilleur.”

“A pretty good Fiji rum that surprised me with a light rubber not on both nose and palate. The nose is fruity with some wood, spice and a light rubber not, made me very excited to test on the palate. The palate is medium intense but nice with fruit, wood and spices trailed by caramel and again that light runner note. The finish is medium long to long with wood, fruits and spices.”
