Extravagant and sexy XO Rum.
 
Brett and Brian Berish are the Midases of Spirits: whatever they start, it turns into gold. Luc Belaire sparkling wines, McQueen and the Violet Fog Brazilian Gin, and now Bumbu Rum. Following their successful Bumbu Original, they released a divine small-batch offering: Bumbu XO. The Rum was distilled and matured at an 120-year-old distillery in Panama, using local sugarcane and spring water. After that, the precious potion spent up to 18 years in ex-Bourbon barrels and received a lovely finish in white oak Sherry barrels imported from Andalusia.
 
The smooth and opulent Rum is a balanced sipping piece of art. It pampers your nose with aromas of toasted oak, vanilla and toffee, while your palate enjoys orange zest, spicy pepper and a touch of coffee. Even the bottle is a masterpiece. It's hefty and black, with a golden metal X in front, and a map of the Caribbean in the back. The best way to enjoy Bumbu XO is, naturally, neat, but it will work fantastically on rocks or in the Black Beard cocktail (add Cola, Angostura and Arrack).

What does Bumbu XO Rum taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Bumbu XO Rum and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.

Ratings & Reviews
Lili
Lili,
Delicious, smooth dry rum with fruit and Carmel notes. Very satisfying
 
Steven
Steven,
Nice, mellow sipping rum. Slightly sweet, with a full round body and terrific nose. I would NEVER adulterate this with any mixers. Great just the way it is!
 
Kelly
Kelly,
Love it! Kind of reminds me of a sweet Makers Mark? Super enjoyable to sip!
 
Josh
Josh,
I'm more of a whiskey drinker, but the reason I gave it the full amount of stars is it is the best rum I have ever had. I've never drank rum neat, so I thought I would try it the way they suggested. Very smooth and easy to drink. Putting it up to my nose, I thought it was going to be really harsh. But it had no after burn.
 
Urban
Urban,
Sorry, not mine favorite taste of rum!
 
Jarod
Jarod,
Very good especially if you mix a little grape raspberry mix to it.
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
A LOT less sweet than the original (which is more like a liqueur I used it to cook/bake with). I digress... This is a well balanced rum, not really complex nor has any kind of uniqueness IMO, making it a decent mixer or sipper.
 
Jay
Jay,
Absolutely fantastic RUM. I use to be a big RUM drinker but have switched to Bourbon and this is a great combination with flavorful traditional and rich RUM flavors and a nice Bourbon-like oak finish. Let some of my RUM friends try it as well and they could not believe the price of $40 for the quality they received. I've even had some people tell me that this is the best RUM they've ever had. Overall, absolutely outstanding RUM. The bottle is heavy and beautiful. I'm very impressed. Well done indeed.
 
Birse
Birse,
Nice and smooth. Great taste, no burn.. I take it both neat or with ice. Nice after dinner drink.
 
JUAN
JUAN,
Great rum neat or with chill cubes. Very bold and rich flavors that really make you have a nostalgic moment. The appearance of the bottle and the taste of the Rum is like a great marriage.
 
Douglas
Douglas,
The bottle is the best and only thing about rum. Coolest bottle ever. Our shipment literally tasted like it came out of a moldy barrel. Like actual mold flavor. Pouring it down the drain. yep - that bad.
 
William
William,
A very weak tasting rum. I was expecting a heavier dose of caramel and vanilla considering the lengthy aging. Its good, but not quite at the level of a good sipping rum.
 
Brian
Brian,
I’m really new to drinking rum neat, or even on the rocks (i.e.. not in a tropical mixed drink). I enjoy the vanilla nose, and toffee and coffee are two of the more enjoyable flavors I can pick out along with the oak, which surprised me. And like some others have said, the bottle is pretty cool.
 
Doug
Doug,
Really enjoyed this bottle. Has a nice spiciness and rich flavors. Felt like there wasn’t truly 750ml in it because it disappeared so fast.
 
Chad
Chad,
Great Rum to drink straight on the rocks. Warms the stomach and tastes great. Also comes in a really cool bottle. Two thumbs up 👍👍
 
George
George,
Very good sweet rum...either straight up or in a cocktail.

Ronan,
So tasty and smooth to drink. Perfect sipping rum. Must try original bumbu to compare.
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Excellent rum, really enjoyed this!
 
Tharon
Tharon,
I really liked the regular Bumbu because of it's strong banana and caramel flavor, but the XO was better. It's smoother and less sickly than the regular Bumbu. It made for a better sipping rum.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
Definitely good Rum. Not as smooth or as easy to drink as the regular Bumbu. It is worth the money if you do want it, but I would save the few extra dollars and get the regular Bumbu.
 
Justin
Justin,
Delicious and smooth. Perfect for sipping over ice. Nice notes of toffee, vanilla, Carmel with a little spice. This is what a bourbon drinker drinks on vacation.
 
Jerry
Jerry,
Fantastic! Great sweet to boozy mix with the sugar and carmel you want in a rum, yet the smoothness you want to sip it on ice. well played!

Delicious. On the sweet side but very enjoyable.

Smooth and flavorful, but have had better at a cheaper price.
 
Chalecha
Chalecha,
One of the smoothest Rums that has ever hit my palate. Smooth with the right amount of kick. One square cube and a nice glass = paradise.
 
Austin
Austin,
I prefer the original lighter Bumbu
 
Mat
Mat,
Really prominent lemon notes on the nose with some caramel coming through too. Initial citrus hit on the palate but toffee and oak notes come through as well.
 
Michael
Michael,
Good rum, but I wouldn't consider it a sipping rum like others I have tried
 
Ray
Ray,
Extremly smooth
 
Jason
Jason,
Not as good as the original
 
Pat
Pat,
Definite flavor of coffee. Hints of vanilla. Little more spice than I enjoyed, but very flavorful drink.
 
Robert
Robert,
We absolutely love this rum. It goes well by itself, on the rocks, or mixed with a cola. The XO is just a bit more smooth than the regular version. We have people that call themselves “Non-rum” types try it and each time they love it. Highly recommended.
 
Seon
Seon,
Spice at first. Sweeter as is goes down
 
Nicholas
Nicholas,
Definitely too sweet to mix, but great for sipping when a sweeter liquor is what you want.

WOW just as good as the other one.
 
Richard
Richard,
The flavor on this rum is fantastic but not quite as smooth and enjoyable as the original of the same brand. Still a fantastic rum and was very worth trying. IF i had not tried the other flavor first i may not have as this really is still very amazing.
 
Jim
Jim,
Smooth, very yummy. Mixes well with pineapple juice.

An excellent sipping rum. We love it as a dessert after a good meal. Even my friends who don't drink hard liquor like sipping on this one

Nice sipping rum, but not the best ever. Very good, but not in my top 3.

Samuel,
Great smooth rum.
 
Jason
Jason,
A great sipping rum. On the initial sip, you feel the vanilla. You catch the hints of toffee in your mouth as the warmth increases. It finishes with a great roasted sweetness. I'll be sure to keep this one stocked.
 
Carlos
Carlos,
Very smooth sipping rum. I enjoy with ice.
 
Jack
Jack,
This is a great rum. Toffee combined with sticky syrup, some vanilla and allspices. A great drink
