Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
The Bumbu XO is much more balanced on the palate then the original. Great value for around $40 for an XO, would recommend to anyone looking to get into sipping rums.
Sugar: Estimated at 24 GPL. This is a better rum than the original. The original is more like a liqueur than a rum. This one still has the banana taste and aroma in it but it's in the background. Overall it's a sweet fairly well balanced rum with Banana, oak, a bit of smoke, some caramel and vanilla with a bit of spice. Fairly smooth at first with a bit of a bite on the follow through.
Jeho sladší bratříček mne zaujal mnohém víc... Tak to bylo kdysi, chutě se změnily a musím uznat, že je lepší než sladký bratříček
I almost liked the Original Bumbu rum, but for me it had too much banana, so I only gave that a 3. It was an otherwise great rum. I had hoped this would be more like the Original Bumbu without the banana flavor, but it is not that at all. :-(
This is not nearly as sweet (I have a sweet tooth), and to me it felt a bit harsh for an XO. Has notes of oak, but I'm barely tasting the bourbon and sherry it was aged in. Usually, that's ok, as I'm a rum purist, but this lacks a little in flavors. Not too bad, but not great either.
Not near as sweet as the orginal Bumbu. More tradtional XO. Little alcohol heavy start but fairly smooth finish. Worth a try
If you like premium rum this one will probably more to your liking than the original Bumbu. It's a "real" rum without added sugar. It's worth to note that both rums don't seem to have anything in common beside the brand name: The OG Bumbu is from Barbados and the XO is from Panama. It in deed tastes like a ~10 year old Panamesian rum.
I think it is a bit overpriced for what it is but it is decent.
At €55 a bottle there are better options out there. Lacks character, this is neither a sweet rum nor a particularly dry one. Nothing complex or interesting on the palate or nose. A glass of mediocrity hence the 5
This guy was less sweet than regular bumbu and went down extra smooth. Great rum for a special ish occasion (because you want to drink it more often haha)
It is not very spectacular but it's a serious one. Strong, powerful stroke, coffee and smoke aroma at the beginning. Aftertaste is bananas and a little bit peaches.
The aftertaste doesn't last enough.
A good one!
What made this rum stand out for me was the hints of coffee notes and banana. Very easy drinking rum as a sipper or with ice. Would be an insult to this rum to drink with coke. Smooth finish and much better than the regular bumbu
I was slightly disappointed but this. It has a dark mahogany colour and a nose that reminds me of eldorado 8. The taste is a bit off with a sweet oak burn. IMHO it is overpriced at $70 at the LCBO but my wife brought it a cross the US border and cost her over $100 with duty.
Nice all day sipping rum. No alcohol sharpness. Very smooth. Sweet, but not too sweet. Hints of banana. Spicey, not very long aftertaste.
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 !
Super jemný a pěkná lahev - ideální dárek. Aroma je na delikátní úrovni rozvíjející sladké tóny v pozadí s dřevitými kombinace příjemná ale ten pocit při povalování na jazyku jako bych pil několik různých druhů je znát jednoduše chutný pro začátečníky jako já
