Fijian Rum Liqueur 8yo

Fijian Rum Liqueur 8yo

This is a rum liqueur made by destroying 8 year old Fijian rum. Some evil person decided to include it in my advent calendar. Keep in mind this review was written blind, so I was expecting it to be a rum, not a liqueur.

This is a series of blind tastings from the “24 Rums” advent calendar. I have not looked at what is in the calendar, so every one of these reviews is 100% no prior knowledge.

Setting: Blind

Nose: Powerfully cloying, just from the smell. Fake chocolate flavouring, propylene glycol, artificial, syrup. Do I have to put this in my mouth? Shit.
Palate: Sugar and artificial coffee/almond flavouring. So much sugar.
Finish: Almond flavouring, coffee. cloying. Absolutely foul.
Overall: This is absolutely putrid. It’s like drinking artificially flavoured syrup. Stay away.
