Rigtig flot mørk farve uden at være tilsat farvestoffer eller andre tilsætningsstoffer.
Duften er meget domineret af banan og vanilje og smager følger dette efterfulgt af karamel. Næsten lidt Werthers Ægte agtig.
Bananen er meget dominerende i smag også, men jeg finder det ikke negativt for rommen - det er blot en af karaktertrækkene og noget som gør den skiller sig fra mængden.

Flasken er ekstraordinær. Rigtig oldschool pirat-look! Giver næsten et point i sig selv

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!

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.

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.
Enjoy sipping...

Trop sucré pour moi. La bouteille est vraiment belle, mais le rhum.... Trop de vanille et trop de goût en même temps.
