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.

This is a classic over-proof rum. It is great to mix.

The smell is chemical. Almost like the rum isn’t rum at all. Not the kind I am used to anyway.
The initial hit is just like the smell. potent. I was ready to rid of this rum, however following the sharp and chemical hit is a smooth sweetness in which you can sense the progression of flavours more than ever. I think the contest gives it a good kick and it’s something I wouldn’t but again, but I certainly didn’t mind drinking.

Wasn't sure what to expect. Aroma is pleasant and funky. Smells of overripe tropical fruit. Surprisingly smooth for how strong it is when neat. Pleasant burn like a good blanco tequila, but the burn is prominent. Mixed very well with squirt, with margarita recipe, or just make daiquiri. Just hold back a little on the portion to account for the over proof. Relative to Run Fire, the aroma is more pleasant and fruity. Rum Fire's aroma is really funky, approaching rotting tropical fruit, some leather and shoeshine. I like both, but they have their differences.

Very funky, very sugar caney, and high proof. A standard bearer white jamaican pot still, but very aggressive flavor profile

I can’t believe this has so little aging to it. Lots of funky, banana-y aroma and flavor. A hint of liquid smoke aroma. I also taste something like those salty burnt pieces you find in a bag of sunflower seeds. When the rum hits front of your tongue, you get a creamy vanilla flavor. Overall a really nice rum with lots of character.

What to say. This is great in a Wray & Ting. It has a great funky banana flavor with a lot of HOGO, but it also has a somewhat off-putting gasoline note similar, but less palatable, to phenols in Islay Single Malt.

Pour a nice jigger of this on ice,
Top with a few ounces of Ting.

That’s a recipe for nice vibes.

Had a little sip neat. Mentale!!

However put in a daiquri with another rum as a base. Very nice daiquri. It’s definitely one for mixing and finishing off tiki cocktails.
