Bumbu Rum Company recently announced Bumbu XO, a small-batch ultra-premium rum aged up to 18 years in bourbon barrels and finished in white oak sherry barrels from Andalusia, Spain. Bumbu XO is distilled and aged at a 120-year old Panamanian distillery and proudly uses only local sugarcane and pure spring water.
Bumbu Rum is based on original 16th and 17th century recipes used by West Indian sailors. Made using spices native to the Caribbean along with sugar cane from the islands as well as South America.

Bumbu XO (80 proof)
Visual: Dark copper.
Nose: Oak, nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla bean, green banana, browned butter.
Taste: Rich spirit appointed with a vanilla wash that quickly fades into dry and well-balanced oak.
Finish: Long with a slightly bitter vanilla edge at the tail end.
Overall: This is a very dry rum, that makes it perfect for tiki-style cocktails. This will cut through the fruit juice and syrup, giving a full bodied kick to your libations.
GSN Rating: A-
