Recommendable to most
After having bumbu original I had an expectation. However to me it tastes completely different. Less banana, more quality. 8.5 overall
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.
Nez boisé et caramélisé, quoique minces vu les vapeurs alcooliques.
En bouche, zeste d’orange, épices - finale où la chaleur de l'alcool est très présente.
Demeure un bon rhum et agréable. Pourrais être un peu mieux équilibré.
Woody and caramelized nose, although thin given the alcoholic vapors.
In the mouth, orange zest, spices - finish where the heat of the alcohol is very present.
Remains a good and pleasant rum. Could be more balanced.
"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."
