This one surprised me as it was a little oaky and had some slight hints of caramel but not at all have any hint of spices like the other one.

Far from the original, no heavy sweet banana taste, easy going down, but still a sweet rum

Bumbu est basé d’une recette originale créée par des marins du 16ème et 17ème siècles aux Antilles. Il est fabriqué avec des épices indigènes des Caraïbes.
Je le trouve très éthylé mais doit sans doute se rapprocher de ce que les marins buvaient à l'époque !

Happy to drink this, but it doesn't say "WOW" to me.

Nose with hints of coffee and caramel. Dry body (which to me is its best asset), with the alcohol prolonging on the finish, to give really quite a nice, dry finish. It leaves the tongue tingling a little which is an attractive facet. It is just a shame that the (mid) pallet is lacking an exuberance of fruit/oak.

Najpierw czujesz alkohol, potem trochę dębu, lekka słodycz, krótki finisz. Do picia mocnoalkoholowy, do drinków jest mało aromatyczny. Drink Cuba Libre jest słaby. Ładna butelka no i to chyba byłoby tyle. Nie wart swojej ceny. Podobny trochę do Botucal Exclusiva Reserva - tak samo krótki finisz i duży alkohol.

Nothing stand out about this rum, it is nice but does not stand out.

Nose is one dimensional with a touch of bite. On the tongue this is drier without the super sweetness of some rooms which would be nice as a sipper but again, very limited palate with nothing to recommend it as a sipper.

Mixing it was nice but again nothing special. For the price of this rum you would expect more. Liked it but will not carry it forward as several less expensive rums mix better and I do not see this as a sipper or blending.

Výborné popíjanie no od rumu za takú cenu som očakával trochu viac

Muddled nose and taste with a finish that isn't clean. Can be sipped, but there are better choices.

Durchschnittlicher Rum, der überhaupt nicht sprittig ist und wenig brennt. Geschmacklich solides Mittelfeld mit dunklen Noten, gewisser Würze und einer angenehmen Süße.

I preferred the cheaper, artificial banana laced predecessor. I think there are rums in this price range that are far superior. I wouldn't buy it again.
