Recommendable to most
I really enjoy the original Bumbu, which, many people do not. I enjoy the banana taste and it’s a good mixer. The XO is not anything like the original. This is definitely a nice one for sipping. It’s got a more traditional profile that you look for in rum. For the price it is one to enjoy with friends.
Having tried this after the regular version, the Bumbu XO was a big improvement but still not impressive. A nice sipping rum but it doesnt have a lot going for it. Mild nose, mild flavor, mild mouthfeel. Mostly unremarkable but a solid rum for the price point. Its worth a try as it may be your kind of rum. It wasn't really for me though.
Surprise by the really special taste. Stronger than expected. It's like tobacco or coffee, the oak flavour makes it interesting.
Tastes way more harsh than the smell.
Ok, but not mine too be honest.
Muddled nose and taste with a finish that isn't clean. Can be sipped, but there are better choices.
Bought this to compare to the regular Bumbu. A little disappointed, still a good rum. But not better than its normal variant.
I know most arn't a fan, but I thought that very distinct banana/vanilla flavor to the original really made it stand out. The higher proof they tried in this just made it feel like they threw it in half hazard. The original enjoyment I wanted to experiance just up and left the flavor profile and I was left disappointed.
On its own there isn't much burn at all and it's a good sipper rum, but the overall true lack of flavor qnd just dry notes just did not do it for me at all, and truly left me just wanting a bottle of the original more.
Fun to try and sip, but would just get the original in a heartbeat
"It is a fair bit drier. There is a touch of oak and a little bit of spice. Traces of ginger and little cinnamon. It’s very very short finish wise."
