Trop sucré pour moi. La bouteille est vraiment belle, mais le rhum.... Trop de vanille et trop de goût en même temps.
A vary tasty rum that i will definitely keep on hand, I would have rated it hight for how smooth it is but that may be due to its lower Alc. content. all in all I really like it.
Smooth elixir type rum with unique burnt banana flavours
The moment I opened this bottle and sniffed the cork I knew this was going to be different. It in fact completely surprises you with notes of butterscotch and bananas. Yes, I said bananas.
There are notes of banana, pineapple, mango, peaches and orange zest. There are subtle spices like sage, cinnamon, ginger and some cardamom .This has a lower proof at 35%. I will keep this on my shelf for sharing with other rum drinkers but it is not for your typical go to rum for sure. You are either going to like it or you are not. For those that do not like sweeter rums, this is not for you.
This rum has a nice banana and vanilla flavor. It's great for sipping straight or on the rocks.
I found this to be a very sweet flavorful rum. Great for mixing with something tart like grapefruit juice.
Bumbu, not bad, more sweet and vanilla than I normally like. It is definitely a smooth drinker
Got this on the rocks to get the flavors of the rum, definitely wasn't what I expected, I think this would be a much better mixed drink rum.
Very powerful vanilla scent that is really amazing. Smooth taste with strong vanilla followed by caramel. The wife also really enjoyed this one.
The nose smells very sweet. Llashings of caramel and toffee.
"It barely even tastes like alcohol in any way shape or form. No mid palate and definitely no finish not even the slightest hint of alcohol burn. Maybe a little bit of woodiness as it goes down."

Nice sipping spiced rum 8 out of 10
Aged for 15 years which is surprisingly long for a rum that is going to be infused with spice to hide some of the nice rum flavor of such a well aged rum.
Anyway, this rum, from Barbados, I was able to get for 25$...a steal!
Sweet, fruity, spicy and rich, Bumbu really has created a masterpiece. Throw in some cardamom, butterscotch, sage, cinnamon and ginger and you have a nice flavorful and somewhat complex rum that was helped out by being aged in ex- bourbon barrels.
