      There so many good ones bur there's an awful load of horrid stuff too. Usually need to spend over ?30 a bottle for the nice sipping rums.

          Bumbu was my recommendation too, see page 1

          It is a great rum in it’s price range in my humble opinion

            Yes mate - that's why I bought it, thank you!

              Well I thought great minds and all that. Just because it was based on my recommendation I take no responsibility for resultant alcohol consumption if you’re enjoying it a little too much.

                I'm a scotch man and that goes down quite well, but rum is lethal. Drank a third of a bottle with ease.

                  I've never been a big drinker of dark spirits and purchased a bottle of No.7 in Cuba last year and it's pretty much taken all year to drink as was a bit harsh for my taste-buds.

                  However, I've taken a punt on a bottle of this Bumbu and it's absolutely delicious !!! The banana flavour literally slapped me in the face when I opened the bottle.

                  This is unlikely to last the week let alone a year I love the cork 'pop' you get too. Very well recommended.

                    If you get given Lambs Navy Spiced Rum (like I was recently) do yourself a favour and pour it straight down the sink. Disgusting stuff. 😵

                      Hah - I’m guessing a lot of the supermarket rums aren’t the best tasting.

                      This could be another slippery slope !!!

                        I’m glad you like it, it’s a very good drink and although slightly more than £20 it’s well worth it in my opinion and in the world of “premium” rums is very well priced.

                          I think it’s a bargain for £30 if I’m honest with you. Six beers down my local cost the same amount and I know what I’d rather have with a cigar.

                          Will look to check some others out too.

                            Ha! My Dad poured me one of those which I nearly spat out! I wouldn't mind but I'd taken a bottle of Havana Club 7 there with me.

                                Try some Rumbullion. Available in your local supermarket for £35 and Amazon £32. Lovely flavours with a banana nose.
                                Mine's evaporating at an alarming rate and infinitely nicer than the drain cleaner cheaper rums.
                                I might have to get a bottle of Diplomatico just to slow the consumption down.
