Rum or not? I for one am not 100% sure...

Starting with the packaging, it's heavy and feels like a quality bottle, nice labels and the cross looks a bit individual.

The 'rum' it's self is a nice caramel colour when poured and straight away you can catch that banana and vanilla scent which appeals to me on alot of levels.

Sipped neat the banana, vanilla profile comes through but oddly enough disappears from your tongue quickly leaving a slight sweet taste and none of that alcohol burn.

Bumbu really comes into its own when mixed, added to a nice ginger ale it's gorgeous.

All in all being a relative newbie to rum its quickly become my favourite as I am a slave to my sweet tooth 😁

As opposed to many other ratings, I get no banana nose or flavor in this rum with “natural flavors” based on an old island recipe. I also like this rum a lot for the flavors as a sipping rum or to add sweetness to a mixed drink.

70 proof of awefullness. I can’t even think of anything to mix this syrup with. Big bottle, big cork, big disappointment.

nice for some cocktails, enjoyable for ladies, and also for you in a summer day, otherwise not really a rum like a "real rum", still one bottle at home can be useful

Right out of the gate, giant nose of vanilla and banana. First sip confirms the vanilla and waaaay too much sugar. Tasty though!

Banana and vanilla forward. Very sweet. But that's my pallet. May not be for everyone, but worth trying.

Nice light drink. Sugar+vanilla+banana.
If you prefer sweet rum without strong alcohol aftertaste, you will find Bumbu really nice.

I really did not enjoyed this “rum”, it has too much banana flavour and not delicate taste.
