Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This is what the old rummies in Jamaica drink. Many a time I bought an old guy at the rum shack a shot of this vile stuff. Brought a bottle home one time and could not drink it! If you want to know what the aficionados refer to as the funky flavor in Jamaican rum this is the worst example.
Got this as a gift. Horrendous. CANNOT believe little have rated this so high. Smells like banana bread. Tastes... I'm not sure... Couldn't finish my drink. Gross.
Too strong aroma of pure alchol and it burns the throat goin down
This is a classic over-proof rum. It is great to mix.
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.
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.
Great choice for rum punch!
Always reminds me of landing in Jamaica - this drink says welcome home!!
This rum is the choice for the legendary and iconic "welcome rum punch" when you touch down on the island - yeah mon!
A rum that I first tried at the beginning of my rum journey and I found myself disliking it greatly. After I started drinking more rums I returned to this funky clear spirit and found it to be enjoyable!
It's really easy to see why this is Jamaica's best selling rum. Lots of that great funk going on, great aromas of bananas and tropical fruit with a slight petroly smell. As it's overproof and bottled at 63%ABV the flavours hold up really well when mixed - I wouldn't dare try to sip this one.
Essential for Jamaican style rum punches but works equally great in some orange juice or something similar. For something different try it with coke or ginger beer. Not the best rum going but it's incredible value for money.
If one wants to live the pirate life this is fire in a glass. Not for sipping but hey that's not the point here. Feel the burn.
Pretty good as far as Rum goes. A bit strong but I love it!
Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Wrey & Nephew White Overproof simply cannot be mixed because you get the funky glue coming straight through from every single imaginable soda. Tried it neat once, and believe me, drinking gasoline goes down easier. Bottle looks boring, but the label design is very nice.
very delicious nose of tropical fruits, dominated by ripe banana and mango. These notes are also present at the first sip, however there is some little burn which I had expected to be much stronger given 63% alcohol. Extremly long finish. So here you have a very interesting price/value relationship. The rum is dominant but still fine at this alcohol degree. This rum certainly also makes a very good figure when used in cocktails.
This is an essential part of my rum blend for daiquiris. Not for the fainthearted!
If you ever just need to get drunk this is the real deal, High octane entertainment. As some reviews said it tastes and smells like gasoline, well yes sort of. but gas is worse.. I found I mix some Guava or Mango nectar and a little Lemonade or orange juice it masks the gas taste,LOL. but I still drink it sometimes it really does Git-R-Done
Only thing subtle about this rum is the name. I finally came to an armed truce with this rum by adding 3 parts oregat, 2 parts Rose's lime juice, and 2 ounces of branch water to two parts rum.
Once you gang tackle this rum, it goes along peacefully. The banana OVERTONES have to be beaten into submission.
Which gives me an idea. Gonna have to try this as an ACTIVE ingredient in Bananas Foster.
Will get back to you on that one.
If I equated this rum to music like I do with coffee, this is Naw'leans Neville Brothers/The Meters funk of the 80's and 90's. Intense and personal.
This is a very strong Jamacan flavoured white rum. Even a half ounce in a rum and coke is overpowering and not my kind of drink. It is like drinking Appleton VX with twice the flavour but only 1.5 times the alcohol.
Working from a leftover bottle brought to a party by a guest who presumably dumped the W&N and drank something else, I constructed a batch of passion fruit daiquiris for a family gathering. I was, however, the only person able and willing to get past the first sip as the predominant taste and spiky nature of the drink was all about the overproof rum. When passion fruit liqueur can be obliterated you know the other component is industrial strength fluid.
Not to be daunted I tried again with Coke as a mixer. Simpler and better but only consumable in a bind.
