Bumbu Original

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.

Reviews for Bumbu Original
yes it has a sweet vanilla taste but when mixed with fresh lime juice and any simple tonic water it is delicious, perhaps coke would be to sweet but with fresh lime really delicious.

Beautiful Flavour
This is an absolute staple on my shelf. Fantastic flavour, BUT if you do not like banana or vanilla, you will not like this rum

Just try it
This is very good Rum, ignore the naysayers of this not being a "true" rum. If you like it isn't that all that really counts ?

Not a true rum
Unusual on first taste, definitely not a typical rum and is very disappointing.
The vanilla overtones are dominant and maybe a bit overpowering which exhibits a sweetness that is even hard to add a mixer. Might be acceptable with a dry ginger ale but overpriced for a mixer.

I was a scotch drinker through and through until I played a pirate in a panto. The tipple of the dressing room was rum and I discovered Discarded. This is better, I mean way better; makes me do a little pirate jig every time I taste it. Yes banana and toffee, I didn't know I was a banana fan, especially not in drinks, but this stuff is heaven. Haven't touched a scotch for a while now

More for a mixer than a neat
Very thick, strong flavour of vanilla and banana, too sweet for my taste.

Can see it work if you enjoy drinking mixers, however, to drink this near you must enjoy a complex layers this rum brings to the table.

Not for me, its the complete oposit of something like a Diplomatico

Smells of vanilla and banana caramel. Tastes sweet with all the lovely caramel laying nice and thick on your tongue. Really lovely bottle for the money.

Show stopper of a rum!!!
Beautiful sweet rum, I recommended putting it in the freezer a couple hours before drinking as you wont need any ice that way and it becomes thicker like a thin treacle. Its a show stopper and one that will impress many people. When buying Bumbu you are best off buying 2, it will not last.

Caramel loveliness

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.
