How does this rum taste?

A surprising Fiji rum with unexpected smoothness. Notes of vanilla, chocolate, and wood dominate, with a subtle fruity and spicy twist. Complex, yet approachable, with well-integrated alcohol and hints of nuts, menthol, and roasted tones. Enjoyably untraditional.

“Update nach ca. 3 Jahren: Habe den Rum nach dem ersten Review kaum mehr im Glas gehabt. Die ursprüngliche. Bewertung mit 88 Pkt. ist sicher eine meiner krassesten Fehleinschätzungen. Das aromatische Spektrum habe ich richtig beschrieben, aber die Bewertung kanm ich nicht mehr nachvollziehen. Das ist ein ziemlich seichter ColumnStill Rum. Die typischen Fiji-Aromen sind weit im Hintergrund. Nachvorne ist er super soft und gefällig. Heute hat Planteray einige solcher Fijis abgefüllt, zum Zeitpunkt der Abfüllung des Duchess war das Profil noch unbekannt. -8 Punkte Anders als die früheren 2004er Releases wartet dieser Fiji mit 12 Jahren tropischer Reifung auf - wie der Holmes Cays. Wirkt deutlich jünger als der 17yo TRC (positiv gemeint). Im ersten Moment erkennt man nicht, dass es sich um einen Fiji handelt. Die Nase ist sehr zurückhaltend und erinnert eher an jüngere Bajan Rums. Im Mund kommen die Fiji-Aromen langsam dazu, vor allem die pfanzlichen Noten, weniger die Gummi-Seite, dadurch wird er sehr komplex und balanciert. Bisschen wie ein dreckiger Foursquare. Der Alkohol ist super eingebunden. Top!”

“Fidji's exchange semester in Barbados. No idea what they did with the 04 vintage. I like this one a lot. Nice complexity with a round mouthfeel. Edit Rum X Advent 2.12.22: would have blindly guessed Barbados again. Fiji where?”

“Blind 24DaysOfRum Day 2: I had decided on Venezuela and was completely wrong 😆 The nose initially conveys fruitiness and vanilla, followed by a slight barrel influence. Very round on the palate with lots of vanilla, chocolate and barrel influence again. Surprisingly little ester for Fiji. The finish emphasizes the barrel influence again and a few tannins flash up. A beautifully simple rum and really unexpectedly round for Fiji.”
