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.

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.

I don't tend to be a fan of white rum, but this overproof version, direct from Jamaica (63%) is packed with rummy flavour. There is a slight hint of fruity sweetness to it, along with a well rounded rummy yummy flavour. If i drank it blind, I wouldn't have thought it was a white rum.

For those that don't like this rum, I did let the drink air for a few minutes (might have made the difference), and secondly, I'm a rum lover and will happily admit when a drink tastes bad, or like paint stripper, and this isn't either of those things.

Brilliant straight, great in a Cuba libre with lime.

N- Hmmm, unsweetened Aloe Vera, weird isn't it? Grassy plant extract with solvent floral. Pungently raw with spicy camphor, some exhaust. Get more waxy and drawn out more nutmeg with water, remains stiff and fiery. Would be great if it is less 'industrial'. (19/25)

P- Punchy lemon peel sourish burnt caramel, antiseptic, extra spicy mouthwash. Sulphur raw cocoa. Albeit burn like hell, the tantalizing solid citrus notes are addictive. Cut the zest down to 55%-ish with water or ice are recommended, just made it slightly buttery and rounder. (19/25)

F- Long, saving grace with juicy lemon and pomerol peel with leafy tobacco scents. Sweet orange come thru after dilution. (21/25)

Balanced:- A blazing 63% moonshine that need to drink with care. Rough with some hidden quality. (19/25)

Weighted Rate:- 78pt

Err...people giving this high marks? Really? OK, so it's great in a cocktail, especially a zombie...but hang on, almost any rum here is ok if you mix it with something so you can't taste it, and the best bstuff you wouldn't want to do that to anyway. So you want to get off-your-head-drunk...fine, just drink twice as much good stuff!

It smells like gasoline, it tastes like bad absinthe or something gone off. The only overpowered alcohol I thought was even vaguely interesting was greek Raki...and this is nowhere near as your money.

When I first started off on rum, this was one that I came across purely because the market at that stage was quite limited, unlike today. It was horrid, and years down the line, I find it no better.

This Rum is just an classic! Recommend everybody to have it even in your home bar. The best overproof rum i tried so far, at least that i remember! ahahah
Grassy, green bananas on the nose.
Uncle Wray is always there for you when you need a strong hug and when you need a punch to feel alive again!

Cant believe they drink this straight and neat in Jamaica but thry do! Slip it into punch if you want everyone to pass out otherwise Im pretty sure its good for a Molotov cocktail. PS dont drink this and smoke

Got this as a gift. Horrendous. CANNOT believe people have rated this so high. Smells like banana bread. Tastes... I'm not sure... Couldn't finish my drink. Gross.

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