Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship Bumbu Original to you in United States at the moment. We're working on a solution.

Bumbu Original Bottling Note

Here we have a higher strength bottling of the Original expression from Bumbu, now bottled at 40% ABV! The aged Caribbean rum has had native spices added to it, inspired by 16th and 17th century recipes used by West Indian sailors. With tropical fruit and spices at the fore, a splash of ginger beer would do well to bring out those warmer notes.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Banoffee pie, oak spice and caramel, with touches of chocolate and allspice.

Bumbu Original Reviews

For me, one of the best rum ever for a good price.

Sorry but I can't approve people who tries an old rum "on the rocks"... Sorry but I understand people drinks water after a pure rum glass or put your bottle in a fridge but "on the rocks", it totally denatures the rum taste...

Concerning the Bumbu Rum, considerating price and quality, it's one of the best rum ever. Flavoured vanilla and banana with an perfect balance, the taste is wonderful and we don't have the impression to drink a 40°C rum.

The only default is you haffi care to not drink to much and with moderation. The kinda bottle you finish in less than a week...

Beautiful on its own. Does not need a mixer as it's sweet enough with a dash of ice.

Sweet and strong just how I like it

A hidden gem that popped up in the supermarket, yes it's priced a little higher but I think it's worth it. I love old fashioned that sweet fruity taste offset with a hard liquor and this is almost like a rum old fashioned in a bottle. My favourite go to drink at the moment especially great for cold winter evenings.

Sweet if that’s what you’re into!

So I’ve seen this rum in my local supermarket for awhile now and always been put off the price tag, however the other day I managed to win it in a competition and it’s blown me away. I get a lot of vanilla and caramel notes coming through which would fully explain the sweetness. It pairs perfectly with Fever-trees Madagascan Cola. It’s very similar to RedLeg spiced rum in terms of the vanilla notes so if you’re a fan of that you’ll love this!

Unique Sweet Taste. Won’t Be To Everybody’s Liking

To me this has a slight nutty smell, which I do like, so off to a good start. Neat it’s a tad on the rough side, but to counter act that burning sensation, there is plenty of sweetness going on (some argue too much) giving this rum a nice yin and yang balance. With Coca-Cola any unpleasantness evaporates leaving you to enjoy a rum packed with plenty of flavours. Now here is my problem. The majority of people say the predominant flavour coming through is banana. Me, I’m not so sure, because from my first impressions, I thought I could taste hazelnut. Then some people have said they can taste caramel and others have said they taste vanilla. So it comes as no surprise to me that I can not definitively say what this rum actually tastes off. I’ll have to let you work that out for yourselves.
