Plantation
Isle Of Fiji Rum

Category: Rum (Aged 3 years or less)

Date Tasted:
Country: Fiji
Alcohol: 40%
Brilliant light amber color. Attractive, inviting aromas and flavors of waffle iron, bananas foster in a copper pot, and fresh praline with a satiny, bright, off-dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, complex, very long finish with notes of cane stalk and leaves, tres leche cake with a drizzle of molasses, butter pecan sundae with real maraschino cherries, and tobacco ash and rubber sap. A fantastic, flavor-packed pot still Rum that instantly teleports you to a tiki bar on an exotic island; pack your bags with this one and stay a while.

Rum Aged 3 years or less

Añejo and Age-Dated Rums are aged Rums from different vintages or batches that are mixed together to insure a continuity of flavor in brands of Rum from year to year. Some aged Rums will give age statements stating the youngest Rum in the blend (e.g., 10-year-old Rum contains a blend of Rums that are at least 10 years old). A small number of French island Rums are Vintage Dated.
