A jumpy, honest rum from nearby Fiji, bottled by France’s Plantation house.

This 2009 was distilled at South Pacific Distillery, enjoying from four-to-five day fermentation before being run through both pot and column stills.

After seven years in ex-bourbon casks on the Fiji islands, it spent another two years maturing until 2018 in ex-cognac casks in France.

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Very intense, it opens on notes of prickly pear and varnish – a profile that is woody and oily. It then becomes fruitier and spicier on banana, pecan, nutmeg and oak.

Palate: It is rich and round, it follows the nose with notes of buttery vanilla, caramel, cocoa, ginger ale and fruity notes of quince, hazelnuts and coconut.

Finish: Very long on charcoal, cocoa, smoke and bourbon.

In 1989 the Maison Ferrand cognac house was taken over by Alexandre Gabriel, who planned to return one of the region’s oldest spirit brands to the height of its powers. Starting with cognac and then moving into other fine spirits, Gabriel scoured the Caribbean throughout the 1990s in source of rum.

 

From those trips the Plantation brand was born. Rums are transferred to France, where they undergo final maturations in a variety of casks.
