Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Classical Spanish style, must have for all, Aromas of toffee, oak and vanilla, after orange peel, pepper spices with notes of coffee in taste.
A very smooth and enjoyable rum. It can be enjoyed over ice or with your favorite mix. Definitely worth it!
Tasted much like the clear bottle. My favorite to date. A good snipper
Damn for a black rum this shit is straight fire. So much flavour and beautiful for rum and cokes
I love bumbu original, this one is more proper rum. Its older, stronger and not so sweet, love it :)
Trying to grow my Panamenian rum collection, this rum was recommended by a friend. It did it disappoint. It was definitely better than the regular Bumbu. It is easy on the palate and smooth, not too alcoholy.
Jeho sladší bratříček mne zaujal mnohém víc... Tak to bylo kdysi, chutě se změnily a musím uznat, že je lepší než sladký bratříček
I’ve seen it at the liquor store, and saw it at a pretty nice restaurant, so I took a shot - literally. Straight up, no ice, with a coke on the side. That’s how I always do it. Anyway, I liked the look of the bottles, but what’s inside is always the question. It was quite smooth, not too sweet, not too tangy, not overwhelming with oak or bourbon. Very nice, right down the middle. I give it an 8, not over the top as a standout, but I wouldn’t be tempted to pour it out after a few sips either. If the price is right, I would definitely add it to my home collection.
Smooth yet strong, belly- and brainwarming. Leaves you eager for more. Shots are great, but sipping makes the pleasure last..I'm a rookie here, but already spoiled I guess!
Sugar: Estimated at 24 GPL. This is a better rum than the original. The original is more like a liqueur than a rum. This one still has the banana taste and aroma in it but it's in the background. Overall it's a sweet fairly well balanced rum with Banana, oak, a bit of smoke, some caramel and vanilla with a bit of spice. Fairly smooth at first with a bit of a bite on the follow through.
On the first smell you can recognize that this one is completely different from his brother. Its not that sweet but more balanced and smoother. In taste you can find vanilla, caramel, orange and spice.
Sweet n smooth, it is a delicious edition to the rum collection
I like its strong flavour, not so sweet. Nice design of bottle also makes it nice.
I tend to like the sweeter, thicker (not quite syrups) rums. This one is a keeper!
Not too sweet, nice aroma. Everything thing else is subjective.
Has a smooth taste and is good as a sipping rum or mixed. For the price point it’s a great rum and is why I gave it an 8/10.
Tasty with a peppery lingering finish. Hot peppery nose.
Nice rum with a bit of a banana flavor.this one has also hints of wood and smoke. Very nice with some ice.
Not near as sweet as the orginal Bumbu. More tradtional XO. Little alcohol heavy start but fairly smooth finish. Worth a try
That is about all you get with this one.............
Sweet start, spicy finish. Very oily texture, mid dark colour. Like it! Worth it sure! Good one to share at a Staff Christmas Party with the hard to impress IT guy who always talks down to everybody
On vacation in Curaçao stopped at liquor store for a bottle. There was a great selection and I wanted something new. This happened to be available to taste. Good nose and fairly complex and sweet as I like. Similar to 12 year Kirk
For the price, prefer the original. Extremely smooth, but totally different flavour
Nice color, a little brighter than the original barbados rum, but the XO is from Panama. Easy to serve for guests, no strong taste of liqour, notes of vanilla, caramel and maybe tobacco.
