Sugar: Estimated at 24 GPL. This is a better rum than the original. The original is more like a liqueur than a rum. This one still has a bit of the banana taste and aroma in it but it's in the background. Overall it's a sweet fairly well balanced rum with Banana, oak, a bit of smoke, some caramel and vanilla with a bit of spice. Fairly smooth at first with a bit of a bite on the follow through.

This aged rum has plenty of character and smokiness. Apricot and toffee but also very boosy

The Bumbu XO is much more balanced on the palate then the original. Great value for around $40 for an XO, would recommend to anyone looking to get into sipping rums.

A decent rum, but seems artificially flavored. Not my style.

I don't really see the point in this rum. The original fills a niche of a very sweet great mixing rum for the more casual rum drinkers. This is a far more class rum however is very expensive in my opinion for what you get. People who enjoy this might as well stick to some of the more traditional brands if this is what you're looking for.

Im Geruch gefällig mit Vanille Toffee Nuss Note.
Im Geschmack fein ausgewogen, ein wenig Süß, ein bisschen Holz, Banane, Nuss, Kokos, Vanille, gefällig, ohne im Abgang sehr zu brennen und Holznoten im Abgang.
Fazit: ein guter Rum, ganz anders als der Bumbu Original, nicht so süss.
Preis/Leistungsverhältnis ok.

Achtung: der muss Atmen und entfaltet erst nach mind. 15 -30 min. sein Aroma, direkt aus einer neuen Flasche nicht zu empfehlen ! Um so länger er „atmet“ umso mehr unterschiedliche Aromen entfaltet er.....

Chuť velmi výrazná, která dokáže pokopat. Vůně je taková velmi intenzivní.

Love the bottle; makes you feel like a real pirate when holding it and popping the cork with your teeth!!! Great taste, flavor, and extremely smooth for drinking straight up.
