Product description

Our flagship Bumbu Rum is based on the original recipe created by 16th and 17th century sailors of the West Indies, who blended native Caribbean ingredients into their rum and called it “Bumbu” – truly the original craft spirit. Using the same all-natural native spices and no artificial colors or flavors, our rum is an authentic revival of this piece of Caribbean history, distilled in small batches and blended by hand. We’re pretty sure our great-great-grandfathers would approve.

    The Bumbu from this vendor tasted horrible. This is normally my favorite rum, but theirs tasted like it hat a cork rot to it.

    One of the best rums I've had! I can actually taste all the flavor notes and it smells sort of like a bananas foster.

    Delicious butter cream flavor. Would go great with a cream soda, I just put it in sprite and it was almost too easy to drink.

    My family had a blast with this as it's smooth.



You'll also find this called Amber Rum. This rum is aged in wooden casks, which gives it that golden color. Those wooden casks also change the flavor of the rum a bit - making this rum varietal taste more smoky-sweet. The longer rum is aged, the darker it will become. The main difference between white (or light) rum and gold rum is aging. White rum is aged for less time than this variety which changes the color and flavor.
No, gold rum and dark rum are different. Gold rum is a golden, amber hue. Dark rum is well aged rum from charred barrels. Both are rich in flavor, but dark rum is more full bodied and has more of a molasses flavor than gold rum.
Yes, but it's not going to taste the same. Since gold rum has a darker color and bolder flavor, it's not the classic match for mojitos. Mojitos are clear and refreshing - making white rum the best option.
Absolutely. Both gold and white rum are perfect options for your piña colada. Gold rum is a versatile rum that can go with a number of different tropical drinks. The only we would not recommend is a mojito - as white rum is the best pair for this cocktail.
