What I like most when I look at my bottles is when I can call for a particular drink, such as I want a "bumbu and coke". Meaning that the rum itself has such a distinct flavor I can discern it from the others. That's what a truly good rum should be able to do. This rum is deep complicated and rich in a flavor not like anything I have had before kind of flavor either. Something like a banana-cinnamon. Now the only reason keeping me back from 10/10 is the fact it isn't 80 proof. It's 70 proof. Which makes it cheating a little compared to the other rums so I knock a point off. Extremely smooth. This could probably be used as a contact solution no problem, it's just that smooth. Extremely high value for price. Would recommend in any drinking combination.

Ok so I bought it for the cool looking bottle, 10/10 for design, simple and pirate inspired. As for the rum, very strong banana syrup taste and definitely not something I enjoyed sipping even with ice. It did make a fun dark and stormy though.

This is a very sweet rum that is fabulous as a dessert after a wonderful dinner! It has a lower alcohol content so it makes a perfect night cap also!

Na Bumbu som sa veľmi tešil a mal väčšie očakávania. No sklamal má a nenadchol,dokonca korok bolo cítiť aj v rume,keďže ho výrobca nemá správne potiahnutý a skôr surový. V chuti cítiť,že je dochucovany a chuť nevytvoril len súd,či zrenie. Nie je zlý,no ďalšiu fľašu neplánujem kúpiť. Zaostal za povesťou jedného z najjemnejsich rumov sveta

Smager meget syntetisk af banan og har ellers ikke meget at byde på.

This is a good dessert drink, not to be confused with a traditional 'sipping' rum. Very sweet and you can smell the bananas as soon as you open the bottle. Very much a liqueur.

This Rum is way too sweet for me. I couldn't drink more than a couple ounces but my friends loved it. They finished it off as shots. Very easy to drink, without a complex taste. Think of Maple syrup with some Liquor thrown in. I couldn't get paste the sweetness to notice anything else.

I’ve learned if you have a nice bottle at a medium price, typically the rum is garbage. This rum is exactly that. No defining quality. Not much different from a cheap bacardi.

Fun as an example of "poorly flavored" rum for tastings.
