Bumbu XO: A Luxurious Aged Rum for Discerning Palates

The Bumbu XO is a premium rum crafted for those who appreciate a complex and flavourful sipping experience. Aged for up to 18 years in a combination of bourbon barrels and Spanish white oak sherry casks, this Panamanian rum boasts a rich aroma and a smooth, well-rounded taste.

Aromatic Depth

The first impression of Bumbu XO comes from the nose. Rich oak notes dominate, hinting at the extended ageing process. Beneath these powerful undertones lie subtle whispers of vanilla and toffee, creating a warm and inviting aroma. Hints of spice, possibly nutmeg or cinnamon, peek through, adding a touch of intrigue. As the rum opens up in the glass, a burst of citrus, particularly orange zest, emerges, adding a touch of brightness to the overall profile.

A Symphony of Flavours

The palate of Bumbu XO is where the magic truly unfolds. The initial sip delivers a flavourful burst of orange zest, followed by a gentle wave of warming spices. Notes of coffee and toffee emerge, mingling beautifully with the vanilla that carried over from the aroma. The influence of the bourbon barrels is evident in the subtle sweetness, while the sherry casks add a touch of dryness and complexity. The oak character, though present, is not overpowering, allowing the other flavours to shine through.

A Long and Lingering Finish

The Bumbu XO boasts a long and satisfying finish. The warmth of the spices lingers on the tongue, accompanied by hints of coffee and oak. The sweetness fades gently, leaving a pleasant dryness that begs for another sip.

Serving Suggestions

Given its complexity and richness, Bumbu XO is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks. To fully appreciate the aroma and flavour profile, serve it in a snifter glass or a tulip glass. Allow the rum to breathe for a few minutes before taking your first sip.

For those who prefer a mixed drink, Bumbu XO can be used to elevate classic cocktails. Here are a couple of suggestions:

  • The Old Fashioned: Combine 50ml Bumbu XO with 2.5ml sugar syrup, 2 dashes of Angostura bitters, and a dash of orange bitters. Stir with ice and strain into a chilled rocks glass. Express the oils from an orange peel over the drink and garnish with a cherry.
  • The Mai Tai: Combine 50ml Bumbu XO, 25ml fresh lime juice, 25ml orgeat syrup, and 12.5ml orange curaçao. Shake with ice and strain into a coupe glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a mint sprig and a lime wedge.
