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.
I keep on hearing how Jamaican rums have a funk (In a good way). I could never really describe them as funky even though it was always in the background. This rum is different in that's because it hits you in the face with a wall of funk you don't expect from a white rum.
Don't get me wrong, I don't mind 'funk' (some of my favourite brandies could be called funky), but I find this to be just a little bit over the top for me.
Still this is an excellent mixing rum for when an over-proof is called for.
Nose: Hold it closed (Very pungent).
Body: A little oily.
Taste: A little sweet but not much. Your not using this for the taste anyway.
Wray & Nephew is a quality overproof white rum with almost a sipping quality. Not at all harsh, sweet complexity (sounded good here) and mixes well with others. I recommend this rum as a very good option for other overproof rum or just as a white rum in a mixed cocktail; makes a great Rum and Coke.
This one rates a spot on my mixing shelf.
Too be taken with care. A very pleasant white mixing rum but approach with caution

Perfekt for Cocktails. Pure and diluted it is fresh fruity banana & pineapple with a little blow. Awesome stuff.
probably my favourite overproof rum, not quite as strong as the the majority of overproof's but makes it an easier drink to mix that is more versatile than its competitors.
One of the best overproof rums out there! despite it´s "kerosene" flavor....this is good stuff! it`s incredibly versatile too, if you google on use in Jamaica you`ll find all kinds of things.I love it with Ting (a Jamaican grapefruit beverage), "JWray and Ting" one of the best cocktails! also it`s a great float in tiki drinks.
An excellent overproof rum. These are the folks that make Appleton but put their names on it instead. Challenging to talk about the taste etc of something that is so strong. For sure a mixer.
