Tasty, but not quite great
I gave this a go last night purely because it's a Bundy, dry with an after burn. Benifits being left in the glass for 15 minutes before adding ice, reminds me of living in Bagara a stone's throw from the Coral Sea.
It’s bundy so if you’ve tried the first pour then you will know where this comes from. This blenders edition is nicely sippable but still no frills which must be a trick! Dry, savoury and spicy balanced (only just) by the stewed prunes and dried fruit that is stealthily blended in by the ‘master blender’... polar opposite to most premium rums but it doesn’t bear (polar bear?) any resemblance to scotch or bourbon other than its brown and its booze.... drink up cunts.
probably a bit patriotism going on here! but this is a reasonable drop. Good enough to be a sipper, Great Aroma, fairly dry and complex. It does have a reasonable amount of alcohol burn. Definitely add a few blocks of ice. Definitely worth a crack
Please dont compare this with all the negative reviews on the original Bundy rum blend - This is a different proposition altogether.
One of the best blended by Bundaberg Master Distillers. It starts off smooth but still has that characteristic Bundy end of sip burn. In between there are some complex rum flavours that make it an interesting rum. Good enough to reserve as a sipping rum, but not a top 10 contender.
I had an amazing opportunity to try a dozen different unopened Bundaberg's with my Aussie colleague last year and I have to tell you that the Master Distillers Blender Edition 2014 and 2015 were one of the smoothest Bundy's he had in his collection. They are very whisky like in flavor profile, but have almost no afterburn at all. Very nice Bundy's indeed.
