Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
Had a lot of overproof rum in my life. This one was undrinkable though. May as well have been drinking White spirits or lighter fluid. Avoid.
I had many trips to Cuba and always enjoyed Havana Club 7 yo. Up until now I did not try anything else except Cuban rum. Once I've brought from there Santiago de Cuba 11yo and have found it so smooth and delishius compared to HC. Since then I've discovered world is full of different rums ). Had tried 12 of them so far. And I will rate them comparing to HC as the base rated 6.
Knock ya socks off, but a staple of any rum bartenders arsenal. Taste is rather unique with a bit of banana flavour in there somewhere
Might as well drink IPA.
Too strong and overbearing for my taste buds but I'm sure that I know nothing about rum.
You can tell this is good in mojito, the minty flavor cuts your tongue after you get through the alcohol burn.
First sip was like WTF? Very odd but some force makes you want more. The most funkiest rum I have ever tried. Too strong to sip straight but excellenet with a bit of water. Funky, fruity, grassy but funk is definitely on the top. It's not for all but I'll try to have it always present in my cabinet. Recommended.
I was expecting so much more from this famous rum. I must say, I prefer dark or spiced rum, and the Wray & Nephew does not change my mind. A bit to harsh!
...the "terrible" smell leaves you shocked,...I waited 15 minutes before I had the balls to sip on it...amazing, how can something that basically stinks taste that good.
I have not tried it yet mixed, but I am sure it does the magic as well.
A keeper in my bar shelf...solid 7.5
It is strong white rum - not magic. Quite ok, tastewise.
When you need a swift kick in the pants and still retain decent rum flavoring.
This rum is not to drink straight, but mixed or in a daiquiri it’s phenomenal. Archetypical Jamaican rum
Only for use in cocktails and then only sparingly. Not to be drunk straight as it will knock you out! Tastes nasty by itself but can be used in cocktails.
If you just need a ovenproof shot or if you need some Tiki Fire, Wray and Nephew does a good job at both.
Lots of ripe banana notes. I use it in punches and enjoy the complex funk and concentrated flavor it lends to drinks. I don't think it kicks too hard for such a strong rum either.
No way to get through neat. Had to get the ice. Strong and poor.
If you don’t know what funk is, you are in the right place. I didn’t know whether to rate this 9 or 2. Funky flavor. Acquired taste. This is not your Bacardi silver. It’s the opposite white rum
I was introduced to this by making my own Falernum using Beach Bum Barry recipe and the 15 lime zested needs a high proof spirit to extract the flavors with almonds, cloves and ginger to make. I also have used this to add a kick to Tiki Cocktails occasionally which it does well because it has good dimensional qualities with its high proof. Astringent nose (thats good for a white mixer) mild candy and burnt banana leaf smells, but tastes of... can't put my finger on it...mild candy cane with a burn and bite? I don't know, but its still complex, unique and quite useful in my home bar for cocktails.
If you love rum, or just tasting drinks or even cooking then you really need a bottle of this. Its really unique and great fun.
The cheap looking bottle that this arrives in is perfect in the same way that some girls look perfect when they wear their old track pants and a dirty dancing t-shirt.
It pours thickly from the very handy slow pouring cap and once released into your glass you’ll smell it....that unmistakable Jamaican pong that nothing else quite has.
I like it with lime and sugar but the real jam with this juice is how it saves any drink that you’ve put Bacardi Carta Blanca into from boring you to death.
I really love this one.
P.s. to anyone who compares this drink to that aged rum you like to sip while discussing what colour would be best for when you reupholster your yacht then stop. Your doing it wrong.
Wow, i tried this one in Jamaica the first time and it knocked me, literally. Super super aromatic and it feels like drinking a flower bomb in a nice way.
Very strong as you would expect burns then quickly evaporates. Leaves a raw taste in the mouth so if your planning on speaking to someone your interested in, have some mints on stand by, excellent rum though
U orechovice jen silnejsi aroma, zde hlavne lih s rumovym podtextem bezbarvych laku. Do koktejlu dobre.
Hehehe this is what you add to spice up classic rum cocktails, just a dash adds a lot of ripe fruit flavors (those esters amirite?) and a serious alcohol punch to the head. A great, long-standing Jamaican classic liquor, notoriously potent and flavorful.
You need this in your cabinet and on your bar.
THIS IS NOT A SIPPER. But it is a terrific mixer in small amounts when you want to bring those classically Jamaican funky notes into a cocktail, and add a little bit of heat.
