When pirates ruled the Seven Seas, they were known to partake of a spiced grog called Bumbu made from ingredients procured in their travels. The modern take of this concoction consists of spices and sugarcane selected from 8 countries - Barbados, Belize, Brazil, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guyana and Honduras. It is distilled at the West Indies Rum Distillery in Barbados. The rum is aged in first-fill bourbon casks with the oldest spirit aged 15 years. It's bottled at 35% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"A butterscotch-y base gets all tooty fruity with banana, pineapple, mango, peaches and orange zest. The subtle spices add sage, cinnamon, ginger and cardamom with a hint of spearmint in the finish. While pleasing to sip and thankfully not too overpowering in spice, a higher proof would give the flavors more pop. "
