Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
...the "terrible" smell leaves you shocked,...I waited 15 minutes before I had the balls to sip on it...amazing, how can something that basically stinks taste that good.
I have not tried it yet mixed, but I am sure it does the magic as well.
A keeper in my bar shelf...solid 7.5
I use this rum to soak my rum spices with. I have a rum spice bottle that is for medicinal use. This is the rum to use when making your own spice bottle. Very strong, but always taste better as the night goes on!!!
This rum is serious stuff. When you start to pour your wonder why the bottle has the annoying stopper on it. Have a taste of the rum and yo will realise why. This stuff is strong, its perfect in cocktails of your making vast amounts. Has to be mixed as drinking straight your only trying to do one thing
Wow strong hit
For a true experience of Jamaica, try this rum. It's not for everyone but this rum is special for its flavor profile and its history with the island.
I really love this rum. It has exceptional flavor, almost fruity but oh so sugary at the same time. Folks I know hate it, but it just does something for me - from the smell to my favorite drink - this and diet coke, it is very enjoyable.
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.
