Troppo dolce anche se la nota di banana è divertente. Rum giocattolo.

This is definitely a good rum for beginners. A bit too sweet for me, but still nicely balanced and an easy sipper. The nose is sweet with vanilla and chocolate. The palate is sweet and fruity with spices and caramel. Kind of a smooth rum. The finish is medium and sweet with vanilla.

Trèèèès sucré. Marketing à fond. Mais c'est agréable malgré tout quand on découvre le rhum.

out of the bunch of super popular spiced rums, I guess I like this best (way better than Don Papa). Strong Bananabread vibes here

Ce rhum est très bien pour s'initier au monde du rhum, très accessible pour débutant ne voulant pas agresser son palais avec des rhums plus robuste, grâce à sa sucrosité accrue et son fort goût de banane, vanille, caramel. On peut noter également la bouteille de type pirate, plutôt flatteuse dans son bar et agréable à regarder, pour une première bouteille de rhum. C'est également le type de bouteille à avoir dans son bar et à partager sans moderation avec des convives ne jurant que par Captain Morgan et Malibu. Cela n'en reste pas moins agréable et festif... Pour un spiritueux à base de rhum.

Overrated Bullshit. Definitely for beginners, who like Don Papa, Diplomatico RE, A.H Rise, Centenario, Millinario and other very sweet “rums”. P.S design are nice for this price category

Ich mag süße Rum und kaufe daher süße Rum öfters auf gut Glück. Das kann daneben gehen, wenn der Rum nur süß oder einfach künstlich schmeckt, zb nach Vanille. Der Bumbu aber gefällt mir. Nicht überragend aber gut bis sehr gut. Süß und fruchtig, Banane und Vanille. Schmeckt nicht zu künstlich. Alles in allem ein guter Kauf bzw Rum für mich, das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis finde ich auch ok. Auch die Flasche gefällt mir, sicher nicht wirklich entscheidend, aber das Auge trinkt ja auch mit ;-)
