Fiji is a great producer of sugar cane and therefore molasses (89,384.00 tons in 2018). A great part is exported but a part is used by the sole distillery of the island in order to produce rum in pot stills. These Fiji rums have a distinctive nose, powerful with spices.
Nose: First and foremost, elderflower notes of this Fiji, then red fruits such as cherry and raspberry are quite dominant mingling with curious scents of hay and Frangipane.
Mouth: Oily and smooth with a hint of acidity. We find red fruits again, this time redcurrant and blackcurrant. The hay has changed to a smoky, peppery touch.
Finish: Well balanced, long woody and spicy. It has some of the Indian food flavours of our previous Fiji bottlings.
