Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I have been looking at this at the local liquor store. This last visit they gave us a staste. Wow. The smell of banana hits you before the rum hits your lips. The smell is strong but it is not overpowering and tha flavour is milder than the aroma. The banana caramel and vanilla notes work well together. My liquor store can’t keep enough of it they are always running out. It has its place, its nice to sip but I am looking forward to having it in a cocktail. Enjoy....I did.😋
This rum is great on its own. This rum has a good flavour with banana undertones that lingers without being overpowering.
Pour moi c'est mon préféré
Très liquoreux en bouche un goût de banane vanille un long goût en bouche un nez fruité un véritable délice
Very sweet, too much vanilla and banana for my taste. Good for an after dinner drink. I had a friend of mine taste some and didn't tell him what it was and he thought it was a fruit liquor. Smooth and I like it just not as a real Rum.
Not a good one but erverybody his osn taste
This is a sugary liqueur, not a rum. That said, it is not unpleasant with banana and caramel being the dominant flavours. It is smooth, if teeth-curlingly sweet, and has a syrupy feel in the mouth.
Not a sipper for me, needs ice as a very minimum to tone it down. Would make an interesting ingredient in banana themed cocktails though.
Udemærket rom men meget meget sød. For sød til min smag, der må godt være lidt mere smæk på drengen. Meget vaniljesmag
Peu de sensation d'alcool, avec des arômes de vanille et caramel très prononcés. Très facile d'accès pour les néophytes. Nez aussi aromatique que le rhum.
This rum is like one giant banana rum liquor. It isn’t bad to sip but in general all notes are hidden by a huge banana forward flavor.
Fľaša, ktorá zaujme hneď na prvý pohľad stála nejakých 40€, čo za takýto typ rumu nie je najmenej. Dobrý marketingový nápad, pripomína to nejakých pirátov a pod. Farba pekná, zlato - hnedá až jantárová, po naliatí cítiť veľké množstvo korenín. Toto je naozaj korenistý rum, jemne nasladlý, citíť exotické ovocie s citrusovým pozadím. Na môj vkus je to priveľmi korenisté (to som ozaj nečakal=) čo ale zistíte, až keď ochutnáte. Údajne najstaršie rumy v zmesi majú 15 rokov, to by mohlo vysvetlovať cenu tohto rumu. Inak to nie je zlý rum, z korenistých je určite svojim spôsobom jedinečný, ale podľa mňa nie ako ukážková vzorka stáreného rumu. Po degustácii sme ho s priateľmi vyliali do mixéru s baileys a banánmi, toto bola paráda, tam Bumbu exceloval. Skôr by som ho odporučil do koktailov ako na samotné popíjanie.
and not as in good. It is a good mixer but not the premium drink it makes itself out to be.
Sweet spices, enjoyable taste, what I would want a spiced rum to be really
Very fruity taste with a lot of bananas after. Too sweet for may taste, but ladies will definitely love it.
Gekozen op basis van de fles (ik geef het toe), maar de ratings waren overwegend positief dus waarom ook niet...
De eerste aroma's van rijpe banaan deden de neusvleugeltjes al trillen van plezier! Een voorzichtig sipje en bijhorende 'swirl' maakte de zoete smaken van banaan, vanille en mango helemaal los. Heel erg lekker en zalig in de nadronk!
Smaakt naar meer!
Sampled this rum and my first impression was the sweet smells of banana and vanilla which felt very un-rum like to me. Tasting this rum confirmed this was an overly sweet rum, probably from extracts rather than from a natural distillation process. While this may appeal to those who prefer sweet rums, I did not like it at all.
And that's about it. Hard to believe this claims to be from the rum haven of Barbados.
Very sweet rum, very "round" in the mouth: don't expect anything fiery. But very pleasant... The taste of banana is quite strong, but I do like it (purist may frown at it...)
I recently purchased a bottle of Bumbu rum from the local grocery store and what a weird surprise. It is a tad too sweet to earn a higher score than a six and contains too many artificial flavors. Vanilla and caramel are very strong on both the nose and the taste, whereas there is hardly any burn at the end. It's a decent neat sipper for one glass, and then moving into something more flavorful. Well done for a new comer, that's for sure.
Well blended with great spice overtones, nice taste an mixes well or drunk alone
Un excellent rhum. Très sucré. À déguster. La bouteille est très belle et correspond à look " pirate " recherché.
Amber in color and delicious in flavour. Hints of banana and vanilla, a true delight to sip with a little ice.
Bumbu is a very unique flavour, bordering on liqueur. Like being punched in the face with bananas. If you like very sippable, very sweet rums, this should tickle your fancy. It's fairly unidimensional, with banana being the star of the show accompanied by some caramel and sweet melon. If I'm craving something different, I reach for Bumbu.
Aged for 15 years which is surprisingly long for a rum that is going to be infused with spice to hide some of the nice rum flavor of such a well aged rum.
Anyway, this rum, from Barbados, I was able to get for 25$...a steal!
Sweet, fruity, spicy and rich, Bumbu really has created a masterpiece. Throw in some cardamom, butterscotch, sage, cinnamon and ginger and you have a nice flavorful and somewhat complex rum that was helped out by being aged in ex- bourbon barrels.
Trop sucré pour moi. La bouteille est vraiment belle, mais le rhum.... Trop de vanille et trop de goût en même temps.
A vary tasty rum that i will definitely keep on hand, I would have rated it hight for how smooth it is but that may be due to its lower Alc. content. all in all I really like it.
