Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Enjoyed a bottle of Bonpland Fiji 12y with my friend during a vacation. Unique bottle and label design. Light yellow color. Pure alcohol, mellow fruits and plenty of oak to the nose and palate when neat sipped. Mild but dry burn at the end.
45%. Nail polish / varnish on the nose. Dissipates after a bit but never really goes away. Fairly “light”; high notes with little in the way of flavor. Somewhat “industrial” tasting. Pineapples. No wood, nothing terribly interesting or delicious.
I expected more from a 12-year-old rum. It improved a bit over time but never really won me over. I didn't detect any influence from the wine cask finish. It was good, but certainly not $200 good. Overall a poor value.
Beautiful straw colour for a very vegetable and floral rum with woody notes. In the mouth, the alcohol is not too present, one remains on the same notes with a nice sweetness but with a well-structured body.
Nice sweet but not too long finish. Real rate = 7,5
