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.

Bumbu Original Reviews

More of a banana liquor than a rum

After having tried various spiced rums (and enjoying most of them) I decided to give this one a try based on local reviews which were very positive. I'm genuinely surprised, not in a good way, with how highly reviewed this rum is. The banana smell and taste is absolutely overbearing and it has quite clearly been sweetened. Perhaps for less experienced rum drinkers this is a very pleasant drink and I don't hate it either, but I'd hardly call it rum. This is a banana liquor.

It’s sweet

🤔 it’s nice a bit sweet and banana and vanilla is the big flavour here, I wouldn’t call it rum more of a spirit flavoured drink one for the kids

Too Drinkable

I purchased this after reading the reviews below..

You will not be disappointed! This rum is a heavenly sweet and vanilla scented aswell as tasting. For me price Vs quality this can't be beaten , an absolute stunner of a rum

Sorry, not a fan!

I love rum, I've had plenty of corkers and several "OK" ones, but this is awful, I've used it for cooking several times and even in hot chocolate, which is a no no for me as I sip mine neat usually. As a few other reviewers have said it's sickly sweet and has an awful aftertaste. I'm not particularly fussed as to whether it being 37% proof makes it "a real rum" or not, but I'd be much happier if I actually enjoyed drinking it.

Brought for Christmas, still in the drinking cabinet after a sample as it felt too nice to share. Gorgeous, warming flavours!
