Rhum doux aux arômes sucrés. Note vanille caramel?

On vacation in Curaçao stopped at liquor store for a bottle. There was a great selection and I wanted something new. This happened to be available to taste. Good nose and fairly complex and sweet as I like. Similar to 12 year Kirk

Damn for a black rum this shit is straight fire. So much flavour and beautiful for rum and cokes

On the first smell you can recognize that this one is completely different from his brother. Its not that sweet but more balanced and smoother. In taste you can find vanilla, caramel, orange and spice.

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.

Smell and taste are much alcoholic at start. One can also smell the cherry. You need to wait some 10 minutes before drinking. Taste then becomes smoother with only little burn and much oak. Although the tobacco finish is long-lasting and mild, I just don't like this particular spice.

Smooth yet strong, belly- and brainwarming. Leaves you eager for more. Shots are great, but sipping makes the pleasure last..I'm a rookie here, but already spoiled I guess!

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.

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

For the price, prefer the original. Extremely smooth, but totally different flavour

Nice color, a little brighter than the original barbados rum, but the XO is from Panama. Easy to serve for guests, no strong taste of liqour, notes of vanilla, caramel and maybe tobacco.
