X marks the Jackpot.

Welcome to Barbados. The Caribbean paradise known for sea, sun and sand is also home to another treasure – Rum. Did you know that Barbados is widely regarded as the birthplace of this delicious golden nectar? Barbados first started making Rum back in the 17th century and remains the place to go if you want the sample the very best the Rum world has to offer. And that’s exactly where we’re taking you.

At Bumbu Rum Company, they pride themselves on making their products as authentic and traditional as possible. Their Rum is based on the original recipe created by 17th century sailors of the West Indies, who blended native Caribbean ingredients into their rum and called it “Bumbu” – the original craft spirit. Using the same natural native spices and no artificial additives, distilled in small batches and blended by hand, their Rum is an authentic revival of this piece of Carribean history.

Almost 400 years of experience in the distillation process is no joke and Bumbu Original Rum is a testament to that. The payoff is a work of art in style and substance. What does that mean? Well, the extravagant bottle with a big X on the front is truly stunning. Just look at it. But only once you pop the cork, can the real adventures begin.

The Rum is crafted from first-class sugarcane that’s been gathered throughout the West Indies and aged up to 15 years in Kentucky Bourbon barrels. This is a super smooth sipping Spirit with stellar balance as well as complexity and represents everything you could possibly want in an ultra-premium Rum. Every little thing about this product just screams Q-U-A-L-I-T-Y. Except the price. The price is right and then some. Jackpot, baby!

Great rum for drinking neat, has just a bit of spice. The price and sugar content make it great in cocktails as well.

The smoothest most rum-y rum I’ve ever tasted. Enough can’t be said about how smooth and DELICIOUS this rum is! We will buy more. And more. And more . . .

Matthew,
If God had bathwater, this is what it would taste like. This stuff is like crack in a bottle. I get upset when I drink it because I know I am that much closer to it being gone. That may be a personal problem or functioning alcoholism coming to the surface, but that’s really me working through my own issues. It has solid caramel and vanilla notes and hoes well as a sipping rum or with your choice of Cola. Good lord, just typing this is making me crave it right now. Its like some dark magnet pulling me ever closer, a gentle lullaby, calling to my soul. Whispering ever sweeter nothings to me like a siren to a sailor I succumb, I give in....

Smooth and easy to drink. Just too sweet for my taste. I’m passing it along to a friend. But the rum is good, the bottle is really cool too.

Chaz
Chaz,
I was shocked at the aroma and flavor of this amazing rum! I smelled it and told my wife (who hates rum), "This smells like caramel!" and handed it to her. She smelled it and her eyes lit up, and she immediately took a sip and said, "And it tastes just like it smells! I could sit and sip that all night!" -- again, that's coming from a no-kidding, NON-rum drinker. This is like drinking alcohol-infused Werther's candy. Hands down the best rum I've ever had - but I love caramel/vanilla flavors in my drinks.

David
David,
This is a very smooth, easy rum to drink. It is not a traditional rum flavor.... it is more. I was able to taste the vanilla and caramel faintly. I will purchase again.
 
MIGUEL
MIGUEL,
I was very excited to try this rum but first things first. The bottle is awesome and looks like it came strait off of a pirate ship. The first smell is very sweet which was new for me when it comes to rum. The first sip started off just like it smells, sweet. Next I got a rubbing alcohol taste as if I was drinking cheap vodka. It taste like someone mixed cheap cough syrup and vodka in the bottle and shook it up. I drank it strait so hopefully it’s better mixed. I would not buy this again unless I wanted a cool bottle to display. I’ll stick to the Afro rum which is actually the way rum should be.
 
Charles
Charles,
Is freaking AWESOME! Everyone whos tried it has wanted their own bottle! Will buy this again!

Best sipping rum, sweet and smooth.
 
Addim
Addim,
Absolutely the best sipping rum. No need to mix, just add a cube of ice and you're set. Top note is vanilla without tasting artificial. Has a sugary finish, but, not overly sweet. One sip and I was transported somewhere warm and calm.
 
Chris
Chris,
Best Rum so far...
 
Melissa
Melissa,
Beautiful color and smells like a decadent dessert. Hints of banana and caramel, both on the nose and the tongue, but not particularly sweet. Watch the bite at the end. This is my new favorite Rum and everything a Caribbean Rum should be.
 
David
David,
A little sweeter than I am used to but I quickly acclimated. The flavor spiral is right on the money. A very good and well priced drink.

Antti
Antti,
It is a classic, rich, dark rum with an intense nose, while a balanced palate, leads to a long & sweet death.
 
Peter
Peter,
Not too sweet. Not really sweet at all. No cloying after taste. Great flavor, very good mouth feel. All in all an excellent sipping rum. Not a mixer. Stands perfectly solo. Three fingers and a solitary cube of ice and I’m a thousand miles south of here. I will definitely be sure to keep this on hand.

Goes great with goslings ginger beer while sitting on the beach
 
Owen
Owen,
A bit too sweet, very heavy on the vanilla. But easy to drink on its own. A bit too easy. None the less, very good mixer. When mixed with coke, reminds me of the old Vanilla Coke.

A lovely little rum in a great bottle. Smooth vanilla, fruity notes and oak. Like being lovingly hit in the face with a marshmallow. My wife absolutely loved it and I will add it to our wishlist.
