After traveling Australia for a long time I wanted to do what I've missed down under: To try Bundaberg. We'll I wanted to do it the proper way so I got the Overproof.

When I tried it with friends it froze everyones smile. The smell is straight: Desinfactant. The taste is also. Not even notes of drinking alkohol or glue, just desinfactant.

Waiting on the shelf for a hard boiled drinker....


Same as arrak in Sri Lanka, add coke and watch the kero rise to the top lol


Richer colour then standard UP, is a great mixer maybe a bit harsh neat or on the rocks.


En bekendt havde denne rom med hjem efter en tur down under, hvor hun bl.a. arbejdede som bartender.
Rommen er sikker god nok som rom i mixed drinks, men den egner sig ikke som Straight up.
Den er dog ikke så skarp som man havde kunne forvente efter duften, men den har ingen krop eller smagsnoter.


Stand back and don't be holding anything that might suddenly ignite! This is strong stuff and can only be drunk when diluted with something less flammable!


J'avais envie de voir si ce rhum était vraiment aussi mauvais que ce que l'on m'avait dit. Hé bien je n'ai pas été déçu. Nez sur le désinfectant d'hôpital et l'éthanol. En bouche un mélange d'iso-betadine et ce goût rappelant inexorablement l'hôpital ce qui ne fait que renforcer le dégoût. J'ai essayé avec du coca mais rien à faire ce rhum est vraiment un drame du début jusque'à la fin.
Je suis convaincu que les Australiens doivent avoir de très bon produits de consommation mais en tous cas le rhum n'en fait pas partie.


Bundaberg rums are hard to find in the US, but 6 years ago some Aussie's that were friends with a mutual friend brought a bottle from down under. I remember it being surprisingly smooth for the high proof and having a very unique taste- akin to a musky winter spice mix. From what I've read about these rums in my quest to procure a bottle, I'm sure that a second tasting would find me singing a different tune, but what I do remember of that hazy college evening was a unique rum and a very good time.


I was unsure if I liked this or not when I first tried it over a year ago. It was strong, as you'd expect, & unlike any other rum I'd tried, (which wasn't that many) but now coming back to it again...just reread the first part. I'm still not sure. Lol.


As nasty as the normal one but stronger, so nastier.


This is as close to whiskey as a rum can get. It will light a fire under your seat and kick you in teeth on the way down. Just tried some unopened, that my father-in-law brought stateside back in '89....I can't imagine the kick it had before time smoothed it out.
