I originally rated this Bumbu a 7 a couple of months back and had to redo my review and drop this to a four It is ridiculously expensive compared to better spiced rums. Foursquare. Brinley shipwrecked. Sailor Jerry. Etc... Bumbu is terribly sweet and lacks the character of many of the others. It is more sugar than anything.

OK...I'm not an experienced rum drinker but I know what I like. I am a mid-grade taster who appreciates products such as Zapacapa 23 and similar but no real sophistication (but I'm learning). I agree with most of the folks who grade Bumbu a 2 or 3 and consider it a "liqueur". Tell me if this is a sin but I took Bumbu and blended it out with Diplomatico about 1:4 and it tasted fantastic.

Probably a rum faux paux but I don't care...I'm not doing Bumbu straight up as I'd likely enter a diabetic coma!

mám opravdu rád sladší rumy, ale tohle už je moc. mix kávového Božkova a marshmallov.

This rum is SUPER sweet, so it is recommended for you if you are in to that kind of sweetness, but not particularly for me. It would be a good mixer, but the price does not keep up with the value.

Nekem túlságosan édes, mályvacukros, szinte már émelyítő. Nem nyert...

With the actual fuel prices, this helped me coming through winter and from A to B :)

Schmeckt wie das zum backen genutzte Rum-Aroma, fruchtig süss, durchaus trinkbar aber halt irgendwie künstlich.
Ausserdem sollte er mit 35%vol auch nicht Rum heissen.

I liked this one when I was starting my rum journey. After tasting nearly 100 mire bottles this does not fit my taste profile anymore.

Over powered Banana and Vanilla flavor. Unnatural sweetness too. Not my style.

I find this one extremely spicy and with rather ugly aftertaste. Didn't much like the smell as well. I like the bottle... less the taste. Marama from Fiji is similar but I'd say better.
