I have had some good and not so good Panamanian rums over the years so didn't know what to expect this time. But this offering was very enjoyable , copper colour in the glass with medium legs. Caramel , fruit and spice on the nose. Sipped very well , tastes of stone fruit , brown sugar , a bit of heat then I got a definite taste of chocolate at the end. The sherry influence came through well for me. Reasonably priced for an 18 yr old rum over here which makes a nice change. 7.8 from me.
It is a burn of alcohol after every sip, so it is not my cup of thea (rum). The design of the flask is amazing - tough pirates drink this rum - but the taste is somewhat a disappointment.
Or, all of the above? Taste like watered down over proof rum. I surely taste water and flavored alcohol here. More so than rum which is what the label says. There are other panama rums w/ the same price range out there that just blow this right overboard. There is banana in there but
the diluting covers it up. XO, seriously, they got some set calling it XO. Nice bottle but Never again!
This is REALLY different than Bumbu original. I like the original even though it is a little over the top on banana. This one is seriously complex. Very smooth. Nice vanilla and oak with only a passing hint of banana. Great nose. Supremely smooth. I do like Panamanian rum and this is no exception. Finish is balanced and wonderfully smoldering. Last hint is brown sugar on the pallet. Bravo! Great rum!
Having tried this after the regular version, the Bumbu XO was a big improvement but still not impressive. A nice sipping rum but it doesnt have a lot going for it. Mild nose, mild flavor, mild mouthfeel. Mostly unremarkable but a solid rum for the price point. Its worth a try as it may be your kind of rum. It wasn't really for me though.
"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."
