I’ll start out by saying that I greatly prefer Rum Fire from Hampden Estates for its Jamaican funkiness and hogo overload, but as it’s not nearly as widely distributed as Wray & Nephew, this is a great substitute. Affordable. Tasty, love this rum!

Drink with plenty of mix and hold your nose. Also works as a disenfectant.

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.

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

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!

This rum is not to drink straight, but mixed or in a daiquiri it’s phenomenal. Archetypical Jamaican 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.

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.

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.

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.
