    This tastes nothing like an aged rum but it is very nice and different. It goes best without being mixed, with some ice

    I bought this on the strength of the reviews here. Unfortunately I now realise that the majority of the people reviewing it have very different tastes to me. I read a review somewhere that described this rum as a "horrible cartoon rum" and that is exactly what it is. The first aroma as you open the bottle is of banana, but not real banana but the totally synthetic banana flavour used in those marshmallowey banana pick n mix sweets. I felt sick after a couple of sips, it is totally undrinkable.

    Is this rum or a butterscotch liqueur? Sorry, but based on the flavor I can't tell unless I read the label that says rum, and even then, I think they're lying. Proof is in the flavor and this stuff tastes about as much like rum as a bottle of butterscotch schnapps. If you hate rum, you may like this...otherwise, avoid at all costs.

    Best aroma of any rum I’ve ever had - pop the cork and smell - it only gets better from there.

    Treat your self to Bumbu and you’ll never go back again. This was the best rum I’ve ever had. Smoothest cold/room temperature, it doesn’t matter. DO NOT WASTE ON RUM AND COKES OR WATER DOWN ON THE ROCKS. JUST SIP IT STRAIGHT. Smooth, sweet flavour. Flavours of caramel and banana from what I could grasp from it.

    Great sipping rum, hints of vanilla caramel, with notes of banana and molasses, not overly sweet. Super smooth on ice. My all time favorite as far as spiced rums go! Highly recommend, great around the holidays especially Christmas!

    I have tried a lot of rums now but Bumbu is the best spiced rum I've had. I try now to buy often because it go's so quick but I get one for all special occasions.

    Always thought that rum had to be mixed with something so when I first had my first taste of Bumbu as a neat 'sipping rum' I was pleasantly surprised. Strong vanilla smell and taste coupled with a smooth rum are a lovely combination.

    I bought this for the boat, it lasted two minutes, between five crew, soft delicate flavour, the second bottle is no longer on display

    This one is simply amazing and I am not the only one having that opinion. My friends and I are all in love with (spiced) rum and this one is loved by all of us. I was extremely surprised by how smooth it ends.
