PLANTATION FIJI 2005 VINTAGE LIMITED EDITION RUM 700ML 50.2%
Plantation Fiji 2005 Vintage Limited Edition Rum was the result of exchanges of cultures and knowledge, innumerable tastings and passionate discussions between Alexandre Gabriel and Liam F. Costello at the Rum Co. of Fiji.
Distilled entirely in triple column stills at South Pacific Distilleries in 2005 and aged for 14 years in Bourbon casks in the mild climate of the Fiji Islands, this rum developed an expansive palette of different flavours. Building on this is Plantation Rum’s proprietary second maturation, for Fiji Vintage 2005 this means one year spent maturing in Ferrand French oak barrels in the House’s cellars in Cognac.
Gabriel and Costello’s curation of casks in Fiji followed by this final ageing process in a continental climate, gives Fiji Vintage 2005 its unique character, aroma and flavour. Each step of the way, both the Fiji and the French teams worked hand in hand.
Notes of oily caramelised nuts, cinnamon, mint chocolate and stewed orchard fruit, with crème brûlée, lemon curd and candied ginger. A fruity, sweet rum boasting spice and caramel galore.
