Recommendable to most
A smooth and more traditional take on rum. You can taste the spirit here, which I do prefer. People who don't drink much will find a burn and want to mix, but surprisingly many will enjoy its subtle aroma.
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 :-)
Very good not very expensive rum. Smooth and delightful sipping or mixing. A good go to drink to just relax and enjoy. But the original is much better.
"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."
