Classical Spanish style, must have for all, Aromas of toffee, oak and vanilla, after orange peel, pepper spices with notes of coffee in taste.

Trying to grow my Panamenian rum collection, this rum was recommended by a friend. It did it disappoint. It was definitely better than the regular Bumbu. It is easy on the palate and smooth, not too alcoholy.

Tasted much like the clear bottle. My favorite to date. A good snipper

A very smooth and enjoyable rum. It can be enjoyed over ice or with your favorite mix. Definitely worth it!

I love bumbu original, this one is more proper rum. Its older, stronger and not so sweet, love it :)

I have to admit that I am a sucker for unique packaging and this bottle looks exactly like what you think rum should look like. I tried it on the rocks and then with an ounce or two of coke. I liked it both ways. For a mid-priced rum it was quite nice. I have not tried drinking straight from the bottle yet, but today is Talk Like A Pirate Day, so I may have to try that tonight.

Perfect!👌 More rum, less banana than than the original version!

I really like the BumBu original this one is different especially because it has less banana in it. Still ok but I prefer the original.

Copper-brown colour. Quite some evolution and a big water edge

Medium intense in the nose with aroma's of caramel, coffee and some orange peel.

Soft start on the palate with some gentle touch of the alcohol.
Same aroma's as in the nose. Caramel, coffee, some orange peel, accompanied with vanilla and some toasted aroma's of what I thought was bourbon casks (also sherry casks, so it seems).
A very long finish.

This is a quite complex and well balanced rum. Nothing in comparison with the banana spiced "original Bumbu" (which I personally also like).
Here you have the complexity of a well aged dark rum in oak barrels.

People who expect an overripe banana tree in this bottle will be disappointed, however :-)
