About Bumbu XO Rum (375mL)
Bumbu XO is smooth, rich and complex handcrafted rum handcrafted from scratch and aged up to 18 years in bourbon barrels before being finished in Spanish white oak sherry casks. The result is a beautifully balanced, endlessly sippable rum. Bottled at 80 proof in a matte black finish bottle with silver and white details along with a silver “X” medallion.
You can expect lush aromas of toffee, toasted oak, and vanilla give way to orange zest, peppery spice and even a hint of coffee on the palate. This is a wonderfully engaging rum that encourages repeat visits, Bumbu XO is perfect for traditional rum cocktails – and perhaps even better on its own, neat or with a single ice cube.

About Bumbu Rum
Barbados is largely considered to be the cornerstone of Caribbean rum, which was first distilled on the island approximately 400 years ago. Bumbu Rum has spent the last few centuries perfecting the art of distilling and blending, handcrafting their rums from a quality blend of the finest sugarcane sourced from across the West Indies. It’s an exceptionally balanced and smooth rum that doesn’t sacrifice richness and complexity.
This craft rum is produced at the West Indies Rum Distillery, on the beautiful island of Barbados. Their rum is distilled from sugar cane, which is sourced from the Caribbean and South America, and fermented using a yeast strain that dates all the way back to 1840.
Bumbu Rum gets its name from the 17th-century sailors that the once ruled the seas. Their drink of choice was a spiced concoction named affectionately “Bumbu,” which was made using ingredients acquired over the course of their travels.
Rum history allegedly started in the Carribiens in the 17th century when they started to ferment and distill molasses, a byproduct of sugar production. Most of the Rum is aged in oak or ex-wine casks, giving its color and flavor.
We distinguish between 4 different Rum categories, where white or unaged rum is mainly used in cocktails, while dark, spiced, and añejo (aged) rum are mostly enjoyed neat.
