I'm a little bit disappointed by this rum. Compared to other white Jamaican overproof rums that I've tried, this one has much less hogo. It does have some hogo, which is still appreciable if mixed with just a little juice, like, say, grapefruit juice. But it can't stand against other strong ingredients in long drinks; there the funk practically disappears.

Kristall klar im Glas.
Welch ein Duft in der Nase und nicht nur dort. Der "Funk" breitet sich im ganzen Raum aus. Überreife tropische Früchte wie Banane, Ananas, Pomelo, Mangostane und noch mehr werden auf einem mit Gras und frisch geschnittenem Zuckerrohr geflochtenem Körbchen dargereicht.
Am Gaumen fruchtig und mit seinen doch starken 63% Vol. sehr mild und weich. In Karamell getunkte, gebratene Fruchtspiesse aus tropischen Früchten mit Zitrusfrüchten garniert und einem heftigen Schuss Funk lassen die Geschmacksknospen vor Freude tanzen.
Im Abgang klingt das Ganze noch lange nach.
Ein toller weisser Rum für die Freunde von Jamaica Funk. Ich werde ihn mit Fruchtsaft oder Root Beer ausprobieren.

Crystal clear in the glass.
What a fragrance in the nose and not only there. The "funk" spreads throughout the room. Overripe tropical fruits like banana, pineapple, pomelo, mangosteen and more are presented on a basket woven with grass and freshly cut sugar cane.
Fruity on the palate and very mild and smooth with its yet strong 63% by volume. Roasted fruit skewers of tropical fruits dipped in caramel, garnished with citrus and a heavy shot of funk make the taste buds dance with joy.
On the finish, the whole thing resonates for a long time.
A great white rum for the friends of Jamaica Funk. I will try it with fruit juice or root beer.

This is arguably the best rum for the price. A lovely funky rum with pineapple and rotting fruit notes that taste like nothing other than a rum from jamaica. With water or ice, it’s an awesome sipper, and does exceptionally well in cocktails.

A Sommelier recommended this rum to my daughter to give me for a stocking stuffer this Christmas and I enjoyed it, which at the end of the day, is all that matters.

It’s a 126 proof rum that’s surprisingly smooth. And it doesn’t have an overpowering taste which is great if you want to mix it with expensive ruhms.

It has a place in my bar.

I use this as the rum ingredient in my homemade falernum. It is adequate, as it doesn't contribute much for flavor, so my recipe shines through.

The first couple times having this rum, I had great difficulty getting past a strong banana note; however, once acclimated to the intense flavour profile, I'm really enjoying this. A note of caution: if you are starting into these funky rums, do not prime the palate with aged rum such as Foursquare - I find the shift over to wray & nephew as a sipper requires a fresh palate, an open mind, and perhaps a little water.

On the nose I get fried ripe plantain, olives, funk, white wine, vanilla, cinnamon and floral notes. Water brings out some more floral character. The palate is caramel, pepper, vanilla, is oily and again fried plantain. The finish is walnut and slightly drying; medium length (but the funkiness lingers).

The more I try this rum the more I'm finding it interesting. The rum category is a truly diverse and interesting one, perhaps the most of any spirit. I do agree with another reviewer that says it can be polarizing; I use to dislike it and now I quite enjoy it.

This was my introduction to "funk" taste in rum and is my go-to for any drinks I want to add that flavor.

Blows your head off, but that’s what it’s supposed to do!
Good stuff
