Top-Fiji, grossartige Komplexität: Frische Frucht- und Gewürznoten treffen auf Holz, Tee und Lakritz. Wenn Fiji dieses Niveau erreicht, dann bekommen die South Pacific Rums tatsächlich ein Alleinstellungsmerkmal auf sehr hohem Niveau. Tolle Abfüllung.

Insgesamt ein würziger, holziger Rum mit einem Touch Ester! Aber um ganz vorne mitzuspielen, fehlt ihm etwas! Fidji-Tasting Nr. 8: 2. Verkostung Im Großen und Ganzen hat sich meine erste Verkostung bestätigt, jedoch schmecke und rieche ich dieses mal noch ein paar Nuancen mehr an Frucht und Funk heraus! Das gibt ein paar Punkte mehr 👍🏻

Pflanzlich bis erdige Untertöne gepaart mit funky Fruchtnoten. Im Abgang recht adstringierend. Eukalyptus sehr angenehm am Gaumen. Alkohol sehr gut integriert.

Mein erster 2002er Fiji. Ein irgendwie klassischer aber ein wenig uninspirierter Fiji: pflanzliche Nase mit dem typischen grünen Tee. Eher fruchtig und nur wenig Gummi, etwas Honig, eher rund als kraftvoll. Im Mund salzig, pflanzlich, würzig mit etwas honig. Nicht so extrem rund und glatt wie die 2004er, nicht so kraftvoll wie z.B. der SBS 2009. Ähnlich dem TRC 2003 nur ohne das Finish. Sehr lecker aber nichts außergewöhnliches (und dafür deutlich zu teuer!)

Rum Pur!!! Jeder Euro hat sich gelohnt! Direkt aus dem Fass. So facettenreich mit vielen Nuancen. Der anfängliche Alkohol Esther in der Nase verschwindet nach 5 Minuten und geht ins fruchtige über. Da werde ich noch einige verkosten. Vielleicht mal auf Eis probieren.

Farbe: Bernstein Geruch: Intensiv, kräftig und funky mit viel Estern, Frucht und Lösungsmittel. Aromen von Bergamotte und Quitte. Geschmack: Im Mund süß mit Honig und leicht fruchtig. Beim Schlucken dann würzig und holzig mit Tabak. Abgang: Lang Würzig, holzig und scharf. 85 Punkte

Ein guter Vertreter aus Fiji mit dem typischen „Fiji-Funk“.

Geht recht ruppig zur Sache, aber wenn man die Prügel einsteckt, wird man mit einer interessanten Komplexität belohnt.
