Same great taste as the original. Thus one is a little bit stronger.

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.

This was really good. Very smooth. Perfect rum especially for the price.

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 :-)

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.

Slightly sweet, mild, pleasant aroma. A bit too expensive for the taste.

The xo is much better than the regular Bumbu. It has a nice smooth swing to of allthough a bit sharper than zacapa

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.

If you like bumbu then you will love this. Much more depth of flavour and slightly stronger as well. Nice over ice with lime.

Really different than Bumbu original, way more deep, balanced and raw.
