Tasty, but not quite great
Easy quaffable rum. More than a few times I have drank a bottle before I knew it and was off chops.
Small Batch is a mid-range Bundaberg Rum at around $50. It's above their standard range of UP/OP products ($35), but below the Master Distiller Collection (MDC) range at $90.
Not as oaky as a lot of their rums. Which is a bonus. A lot sweeter than a lot of the Bundy range as well. Also not as hot on the throat with the alcohol burn.
Beautiful golden colour. You can do 1 or 2 shots neat, but I'd draw the line there.
Because of its sweetness and distinct lack of oakyness this will mix with a lot of other drinks other than Coke.
But for what it's worth, lots of ice, 2 shots of Small Batch, few shakes of Coke Zero (no sugar) and we are in business here.
Na rozdíl od Bundaberg Original se jeho chuť a vůně blíží středoamerickým rumům. Prozatím jde o nejlepší rum co jsem od značky Bundagerg ochutnal.
Loved this at first. Drank a bottle over a couple of days. Not too sweet, some complexity, long finish. The 2nd bottle has been held in reserve for occasional sipping and now seems to have more of an antiseptic taste. Less pleasant by far, so drink it quickly!
This is a fairly non-offensive rum, easy to drink. Lacks any real notable character. Neat tastes like a smooth sweet whisky with an ever-so-slight caramel flavour. Actually, I am rather underwhelmed, considering the price there are so many better choices as far as rums go. Those that appreciate a single malt looking to move to a sipping rum might find this a pleasant surprise, but as far as rums go, this is a slightly better version of Ron Zapaca in my books, some might think thats a compliment, but what I mean by that is, it lacks any real rum-like aspect, and bold flavour.
I’m a huge Bundy fan, sadly living in the US it’s a rare treat. But being blessed with an Aussie daughter-in-law does have its privileges 😎 This is a smooth, aromatic, perfect sipping rum with a fantastic finish. A special thanks to the Quantas purser that introduced me to Bundy many years ago! 👍
As an avid Bundaberg UP avoider it too me years to pluck the courage to sample the Small Batch. I shouldn’t have waited for so long. It’s a much smoother rum. Mixes well. Definitely worth spending a few extra $$ to enjoy a much better product.
Throughout my younger days always loved the up bundy and coke. After trying this it's hard to go back to up. So much smoother than regular bundy while still similar in taste. Price increase is worth it just for the perfect cork opening sound every time you have a drink.
