Named after Reverend Stiggins in Charles Dickens’ Pickwick Papers, whose favourite drink was Mrs Weller’s pineapple rum. Stiggins' Fancy was created by Alexandre Gabriel, cellar master Plantation and David Wondrich, author of the book Imbibe!, originally as a thank you to CAPs at Tales 2015.
Stiggins’ Fancy is made by infusing ripe Queen Victoria pineapples in Plantation Original Dark Rum for three months. This is combined with a spirit made by infusing pineapple rind (where the fruit’s essential oils are mainly found) in Plantation 3 Star Rum and then distilling this infusion. The blend is then aged in oak casks for three months prior to bottling.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 29/07/2016

Appearance:

Clear, deep burnished coppery amber.

Aroma:

Dried pineapple, grilled peaches, overripe banana, Tizer and demerara sugar with clove, cinnamon and black pepper spice.

Taste:

Slightly sweet. Grilled pineapple, flambéed peach, tangerine and scorched demerara sugar with clove, cinnamon and black pepper spice.

Aftertaste:

Caramel, grilled pineapple and cinnamon with lingering zesty orange.

Overall:

Perhaps best described as pineapple influenced rather than pineapple flavoured, this is indeed a fruity rum with notes of grilled pineapple, flambéed peach, tangerine and demerara sugar with clove, cinnamon and black pepper spice.
