A fantastic sweet sipper...very strong banana and vanilla flavor. If you don’t like sweet or banana...steer clear. Otherwise, grab your favorite glass throw in a ball of ice and fill it high...sit back and enjoy. Unique.
Love this rum. For the price one would be hard not to find a better experience of notes and flavors. Sweet it is lasting is the aftertaste of caramel and nots of banana. So much to discover, I will leave that for those that follow.
This has probably ruined me for other rums. And is it awful that I don't want to discard the empty bottle? There is this amazing vanilla taste to start and then it just sort of coats the throat with rummy goodness and a hint of caramel that hangs with you between sips.
This is probably the best rum I've ever tasted. I first tried this when I ordered a flight of rum which was a first, because it's usually a flight of whiskey or beer for me. I've turned on all my friends to Bumbu so now there are another 20 people drinking Bumbu. Highly recommended for your home bar.
Upon first removal of the cork, I was somewhat surprised. This was not the normal aroma of the rums I have been used to.
My first thought was to Banana Bread. A bit more time and vanilla was obviously quite strong as well.
I have found this wonderful to sip just over some ice.
An associate of mine made a Rum and Coke out of it and the flavor was quite unique and pleasant to all that he let taste it.
This rum is Very smooth and the finish is sweet and not at all as strong as you expect a rum to be
I loved it and picked up a second bottle long before the first one was finished. This is going to be a regular at my home bar
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.
Wow. That’s gonna be your first reaction so get ready. Here’s what I’ll say about this: if you are looking to drink some hard liquor that you normally sip on and your friends are impressed by it, this is not that. However, if you have a secret love for something like Malibu...aka a very flavorful easy-to-drink liquor, then this is for you. This is an intensely flavorful rum. Very banana forward, sweet but not too sweet, this rum is—quite literally—delicious. I’ve never really said that about a straight drink. Delicious. But this rum is so packed full various flavors and notes that it actually is exciting. Plus, the burn build-up is wonderful. The snob would probably not like this but that’s ok, I like to be a snob most of the time. But if you’re looking for something fun, get Bumbu.
I love this Rum it is on the sweet side and is great neat and even better for all rum drinks. I highly recommend this Rum to anyone how is a rum drink fan or just wants something neat that is not Whiskey.
Loved it ! I especially love the balance of the nodes and the taste after smooth as silk and a good balance between the toung and stomach I think that you should GIVE me a try especially if you want to chill out and experience a great Rum with Balance straight up nice and I dare you to try this Dram !
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.
