Phenomenal flavour from the spices. Great at $37, Unbuyable at $72 (which it may sell for)

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.

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.

Smooth elixir type rum with unique burnt banana flavours

The moment I opened this bottle and sniffed the cork I knew this was going to be different. It in fact completely surprises you with notes of butterscotch and bananas. Yes, I said bananas.

There are notes of banana, pineapple, mango, peaches and orange zest. There are subtle spices like sage, cinnamon, ginger and some cardamom .This has a lower proof at 35%. I will keep this on my shelf for sharing with other rum drinkers but it is not for your typical go to rum for sure. You are either going to like it or you are not. For those that do not like sweeter rums, this is not for you.
