About the Rum:
From the pristine lagoons to the lush jungles, Plantation Isle of Fiji is an ode to the beauty ofthe Fiji Islands.

This delicious rum is made using traditional techniques and local Fijian sugar cane. First aged in this tropical climate in bourbon casks, the rum is then sailed to the southwest of France for a second maturation in French oak casks.

This double ageing method paired with Fijian know-how creates a rum with warm notes of exotic fruits and raisin.

TASTING NOTES:
Color : Gold.

Nose : Intense, it starts on molasses, pear and varnish. It then becomes fruitier and spicier on apple, banana and gooseberry, also nutmeg and vanilla with a hint of smoke.

Palate : Rich and round, it follows the nose with vanilla fudge, honey, ginger and fruity notes of prune and coconut.

Finish : Very long on dried banana, bourbon and allspice.

Empty glass : Molasses, oak and allspice.

"Sweet plantain, molasses, and creamy tropical fruits are pungent and distinctive aromas. Dark brown sugar is clean and sweet in the mouth, quickly enhanced by background notes of allspice, butter baked bananas, and soursop. Clean and focused, the funky flavors are precise and delicious."
