I prefer to drink rum straight up, but best not to with this fella. Rum in name only.

Being from Australia I wasn't expecting much but I was still disappointed.

I love rum and I am proud to be australian. Many Australians are proud of bundaberg rum. I disagree with them on this bundaberg rum. So bundaberg has a near monopoly on being an australian rum. Sad.

Atrocious. Tastes like cheap whiskey. Vile

A rough harsh rum. Not drinkable neat or on the rocks. Expected better. Thankfully, Bundi has better options.

If I could rate 0/10 I would. An overly harsh taste that insights an instant gag reflex. As a local there is nothing worse than someone being debilitatingly drunk on this drink. Very common for those who enjoy this drink to also enjoy ending the night in a scuffle. Avoid at all costs.

My first Bundy rum. The original. Need I say more. Brings back memories of Oz. Drink it neat as well as mixed, both as pleasant as the other. Not to everyone’s taste tho, I have discovered.

Australia's national drink. Tastes a bit dirty at first but once you get a taste for it, it's amazing. Also available in perfectly mixed Bundaberg & Cola cans.

"The Original". 37.0% ABV (one of those oddly and unnecessarily specific values...). Faintest nose of any rum I’ve tried. The flavor isn’t bad, but it’s also not really there. And there’s enough ethanol in the nose and dry heat in the mouth (capped off with a super short finish) that I doubt it would be pleasurable at a higher proof. So, I really can’t recommend this to anyone, even for cocktails (and fortunately, this can’t legally be sold as “rum” in the US). It’s inoffensive, but I just see no reason to go back to it.

Only ever tried captain morgan and coke before so I was expecting a nice vanilla coke flavor. Ordered a rum and coke and forget to specify which rum and she put this in it. I was like I guess I could try it. Got back to my table and had my first sip and it had some strong taste I did not find pleasant. Couldn't work out what the taste was but it was familiar. It did get a bit better as the alcohol mixed in. I would never get it again.
