Super rhum que j ai découvert, un goût de caramel avec une finale de banane flambée. Il est très doux je sens que je vais en commander deja une autre bouteille.
Lots of good stuff here; vanilla and banana notes. Just too syrupy to be excellent.
I find that it’s really sweet with loads of vanilla, it’s smooth but to be enjoyed with coke or in a cocktail
First of all I have to say that I enjoy most of the sweet thing. While they claim there is no sugar or flavor added... Ehh I can't believe it. There is no doubt that they add something and I will not say it is a rum for connoisseur. I still have enjoyed it though but will not recommend it as a true rum.
Had this at local whiskey bar and thought it was a little on the sweet side. Still pretty good so I bought a bottle. I think this is more of a dessert rum than an everyday sipping rum.
Plenty of criticism on this one at their ethnicity, labelled as Craft Rum, but at strength of 35% and added ingredient, technically a spiced rum instead. However, spiced rum are considered crafted right?
N- Banana fritter with chocolate sauce, sugar in the heart with green mango and young fruit, quite potent at the tail with nail polish with hints of white distillate. (79/16)
P- Vanilla, clove, cardamon and assam boi, gently salty-sweet, light, feel tropical and relaxing, would drink this over some crushed ice under the shades of coconut trees, by the sea of course. (83/18)
F- Short, light, sweet but not cloying. Confusing labeling apart, this is acceptable to me, and certainly there are poorer spiced rum out there. (83/18)

Pri tomto rume som mal velke ocakavania pre jeho recenzie a vsebecne renome. No bol som strasne sklamany. Chut ako pri lacnom alkohole plneho bananovej a vanilkovej umelej prichute. Pozitivne hodnotim iba vzhlad flase.
Un rhum que je trouve bon, agréable et facile à boire surtout en fin de repas. Les arômes de vanille et de banane très marqués, sans grande subtilité ni trop de longueur en bouche, mais agréable en dessert, et très fluide. Je le rapprocherais assez d'un Don Papa pour le goût, et d'un rhum bas de gamme pour la texture.
Why not. Sweet and fruity rum. I like sweeter rums and this one will be one of my favourites. For someone maybe much fruity and yes, this one is not classic rum. :) Smell is very strong fruity, mostly banana.
very sweet rum, flavor of banana and apples, veri unique but for this price i can buy better one
mám opravdu rád sladší rumy, ale tohle už je moc. mix kávového Božkova a marshmallov.
This is one of the only rums, besides run of the mill bacardi I can get at my local. It's just too sweet and too banana for me.
a blended rum from difrent islands which is blended into a sweet fruity rum poored into an attractive bottle with a corck
This rum is straight bananas on the nose and palate. It’s low proof, sweet and easy to drink. A great starter rum for people who haven’t yet developed a palate for the dryer and more balanced rums.
Thankfully it is not as off putting as AH Riise stuff, but it is so far from rum as Fanta.
Although Bumbu boasts a much sweeter and banana flavor than other higher end rums, this is still one of my go-to bottles.
It sips incredibly well, and leaves a sweet taste of vanilla on the tongue.
It’s certainly not something to drink too many of, as the sugar will work it’s magic in the morning. But, a great after dinner treat.
I wanted to try one of the more expensive brands at our local store but got disappointed with a strong banana and vanilla extract, might be good to mix in some cocktails but I would not recommend this as a premium rum ! Shame that the bottle is marked with the words “rum with natural flavors” as this doesn't taste natural at all...
Very sweet smell. Taste: vanilla, creamy butterscotch. It is a nice rum to have in or with your coffee. A liquor instead of a rum, my opinion
Not an inexpensive rum around my parts, but not the most expensive either so I thought I'd give it a go. Smells to me like really sweet vanilla and caramel. Taste is sweet too. Strong vanilla and artificial banana(?) aftertaste. If sweetness is not your bag, well, then this is probably not either. I'll check in with this review when I'm deeper into my bottle. Which is quite decorated, I must say. That can be a positive or a negative, as really high quality stuff are often underpackaged and anonymous. This bottle is loud.
Bought this knowing reviews had labeled it too sweet with overdone notes of vanilla extract and (Laffy Taffy) banana flavors. Although the flavor is overdone it’s still a decent rum. Enjoy with some summer style cocktails and you won’t regret it. Not an everyday rum but one I’m happy to keep in my liquor closet. Cheers!
Vzhľadom fľaše má rum Bumbu lákal od začiatku ochutnať. Nazval by som ho dezertným rumom...
Vôňa je kvetinová, chuť je sladká, výrazne po banánoch, cítiť ho trošku aj po ananáse a mangu.
35% a sladkosť ho predurčuje pre ženy alebo ľuďom, kt. neobľubujú ostrú alkoholovú chuť. Zaujímavý kúsok, ktorý odporúčam ochutnať.
Overall the rum was really sweet with a lot of banana. Doesn't really taste like an aged rum, more like banana candy in a bottle. If your into that this is the rum for you, but this is definitely not what you expect from an aged rum.
Low alcohol content, almost no burn on the sip. Plenty of sweet fruit smell and taste on the tongue. Most dominant is the banana (not as much as in Arcane Extra-aroma) and coconut. But not really a rum per-say. Works great as dessert after Sunday lunch or dinner. Will be welcomed by most female drinkers and looks stylish (if maybe a bit childish) on the shelf.
If you want a rum to enjoy the flavors and power, stay away. If you want a fun alternative to the Legendario elixir, give it a try.
A very sweet rum but if you are in the mood for it the banana and vanilla flavour works. I would recommend this one, but don’t expect a traditional rum
The vanilla hit me first, and much stronger than the banana. (This could be because of my still-being-educated rum palate.) The first glass was delightful, and it made me look forward to a second. But after two or so sips of the second, the sweetness and almost syrupy aspects of the rum overcame the tastiness and made me put down my glass. I added about three ounces of Coke and finished my drink. It was yummy with the cola. I'll look forward to rum and cokes with Bumbu in the future, but no more "on it's own".
