RX9650 Very good Pot Still Rum Single Cask 291 bottles Under 100€
“Fruity Fiji rum with unique smoke, spice, and potent character.”

The "Fiji FPBP" is a unique rum from the South Pacific distillery in Fiji, selected and bottled by independent bottler Barikenn. Distilled in 2012 from Molasses with a Pot Still, this rum has been aged for 8 years before being bottled at cask strength with an ABV of 58.5%. Limited to just 291 bottles, this rum features prominent aromas of banana, tropical fruit, brown sugar, and woody notes. On the palate, it offers flavors of ginger, pepper, fruity sweetness, honey, and burnt sugar. Our RumX users commend its blend of tropical fruitiness with hints of wood and spice, making it an enjoyable and well-crafted rum. Though not considered the best Fiji rum, it's appreciated for its distinct character and pleasant drinking experience.
