Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Despite its huge success in Australia, I am dumbfounded as to its popularity. My only conclusion is it is due to the lack of Rum Distilleries in Aus. and the exurborant costs of imported alcohol, what else have people got to turn too.
Just another Bundy label for the red necks of Oz
Very frothy n tastes like soapy water
Main virtue is its not as vile as its close relative - standard UP and OP. Like kissing your sister, its wrong.
This bottle is pure paint thinner. I get no tones except chemical notes. Would most likely give to an enemy. 2/10
But so is the stuff I put in my lawnmower.. that being said , it is drinkable , triple filtered so that removes a lot of the horrible original U.P taste , thank god. Still only 37.5% but an ok mixer that has a bit of a whisky taste.
Not a re buy for me..
I always drink Bundaberg Rum and coke. I bought this thinking it would be “smoother” as that’s what it promised.....boy was I disappointed!!! It tasted watered down and sweet as I imagine perfume to taste. Doesn’t even taste like rum, hate it and have just poured the litre of it down the sink in disgust! What a waste of $60! Not happy at all.
Probably the smoothest Australian and Bundaberg rum I've had. Still quite sweet, however it is good for light sipping.
Smooth, full of flavour. One of the nicest Bundies to my taste. Neat, as well as mixed.
I had an amazing opportunity to try a dozen different unopened Bundaberg's with my Aussie colleague last year and the basic of the basic Red Bundy is decent with coke, but has quite a unique flavor and quite a strong afterburn, so I would not recommend neat sipping this one.
Very flavoursome and nice flavours across the palette , not a high rating but still decent
Had to try this when I heard it was filtered through red gum. Love the nose, slight rum smell there but more fruity than most. Can be sipped straight up, where it's again a slightly fruity taste quickly leading to a slight burn that's medium lasting. Prefer it with coke myself, as I do with most drinks.
Note: didn't like the first drink, but it developed the fruitiness I now like after it had been open awhile.
I found this is close to a Bourbon. If i am right in what Bundaberg have tried to achieve here is try to cater for the Bourbon drinkers to entice them into Rum drinkers. I personally converted a few myself with this drop. I love it too !.
Although i drink it with Coke it is a weclome change from the standard UP Bundaberg.
Nice taste compare to normal rum. Gets this all the time enjoy with cola and ginger ale for a dark and stormy.
Far smoother than it's other low end counterparts, drinkable on the rocks- but I don't mind a bit of burn, and far better than the standard UP -(I actually prefer it to the Small Batch and 280- the companies more recent premium selections).
While one of the better Australian Rum's, it is a long way behind its international counterparts.
