A brilliant Panamanian Rum aged up to eighteen years with a Hip-Hop twist.

Bumbu is a newer producer of Caribbean Rums — and they are one to keep an eye on. They have already received a string of awards due to their uncompromising focus on quality Spirits. They source their primary Spirits from The West Indies Rum Distillery on Barbados who are one of the top three producers on the island.

Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. is one of the most influential Hip-Hop artists of all time. You probably know him by his stage name — Lil Wayne. In late January of 2020 he released his thirteenth album, the number-one selling "Funeral." Bumbu Rum partnered with Lil Wayne to create a limited edition version of their XO to celebrate the album’s release. Even though Bumbu is based in Barbados, this Lil Wayne special release is a blend distilled and aged in Panama. It’s aged up to eighteen years in ex-Bourbon barrels and then finished in Spanish Sherry casks. The bottle is a distinctive interpretation of antique Rum bottles in collector-worthy black glass.

Smartass Corner:
Barbados was a British colony, and throughout the Caribbean and North American colonies there was a drink called "Bumbo" or "Bumbu" made from Rum and spices. It was likely the world’s first "Spiced Rum" and even George Washington served it.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
If the center of our galaxy had a signature scent, it would be Rum. Yup, astronomers studying a giant cloud in the Milky Way found a substance called ethyl formate, a chemical that smells suspiciously like Rum.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Common Rum classifications: White, Golden or Amber, Dark, Spiced, Añejo and Age-Dated Rums.
