a superb full flavoured rum

An amazing smooth full flavoured top class rum absolutely superb. You get to sample the aroma before you even taste it. Firmly added to the top of my favourites list.

Tipped most of it down the sink

Seen the bottle, thought that looks good, £35 so it must be good? Could only get through a third before pouring it away, sickly banana flavour rum mostly sugar. Never waste money like that & I loved the bottle, alas on holiday so couldn’t justify keeping it in luggage. Too sickly sweet for me.

Smooth as a golden with natural tropical flavours

Insane rum, usually hate spiced rum but this is so smooth absolute up there with my faves. For anyone like me who prefers golden rum and straight drinks this is a great shout

Yum definitely

My taste buds jump with joy I purchased this for the bottle design then releasing this was no ordinary rum . Exciting favour that brings enjoyment a refreshing rum to sit back with and to enjoy. One of life's surprises thank you

The best rum I've tried in years

Unbelievable Jeff.

Beautiful rum. Definitely top 5!

a decent rum.

Its a decent spiced rum full of flavour and goes down smooth and I also like the bottle design

2nd June 2020


This is fantastic! The best rum I've ever tasted. Downed half a bottle without even realising it. Definitely get notes of toffee and banana but it's the smooth vanilla afterwards that I love. Neat or with cola this is very, very tasty. Will be empty, and replacing, soon!

Bought on a whim but it very quickly became a firm favourite. Delicious!

New Nbr 1 with great flavours

Hate bananas with a passion but the banana taste left in the palate is very nice, i am not a rum expert, just like drinking it, but you can taste each flavour in Bumbu individually. Always drank morgans spiced, then moved on to Kraken and Red Leg in the last year or 2, with Kraken being my fav, but Bumbu has well and truly became the new nbr 1, Kraken cant even touch it.

Very Good Quality! Nice Sweet Taste, lovely level of bite

Quality Rum, probably my second favourite I have tried on my rum rampage this year. It’s between this and rumbullion for 2nd place, with Old J being top dog at number 1 spot!

27th February 2020


Superb and what a price definitely cheaper than most supermarkets for it and the taste is top shelf

14th February 2020


Really nice to drink neat. Can definitely taste the banana.

29th January 2020

Banana rum

Delicious banana & spice taste

Unusually Brilliant !!

A great unusual Rum.. 10/10. definitely get the Banana and good to sip on its own with a cube of ice... doesn't replace my favourite Mount Gay XO but nice for a change..

Nice, but only occasionally.

It’s a nice rum but not one you’d go to to as a daily sipper. It’s one that you’d have occasionally when you fancy something different. The most prominent flavour by far is banana, and lacks any of the vanilla that you would expect from a rum. Strangely, it feels more like a liqueur than a rum.

Best rum I've drank.

Just been to rum and gin festival. Tried lots of rum. My favourite was Kracken but not anymore. This rum is fragrant, tasty, smooth. Lovely on its own with dried banana flakes and plays well with coke and ginger ale. Bought a bottle right then and there. Shared with friends and all loved it.

5th August 2018


outstanding, complex flavors, sweet, but not too sweet. Great sipper neat or on the rocks. Love it with Coke/Diet Coke as well.

4th May 2018

Wow - a bit sweet but very appealing and moreish!

I have just had my first taste of Bumbu. Initial impression was it was a bit too sweet, but then all the rest of the flavours hit me. It got seriously better with each sip and I am very happy to have it in my liquor cabinet. There is also a freshness to it that belies the sweetness and if the write up on this rum is accurate, it is nice to be drinking something with such history! I will definitely buy it again. Wouldn't it make a great Rum Baba!
