Recommendable to most
Coconut, butterscotch, banana and FUNK! Potent, boisterous, and enjoyable, but only for the first third or so of the bottle. Then the novelty wears off and you're left wondering "what in the name of Tarzan's Treehouse am I supposed to do with all of this..?"
Not nearly as obnoxious as wray and nephew, but both rums share a strong pineapple/citrus aroma on the nose, though wray and nephew smells much more like chemicals than this. It is very funky, and for many it may be too much to have neat or even on the rocks. A tropical cocktail for this would be the best bet; I saw a recipe for a daiquiri using this and then plantation’s stiggins fancy (great rum). I really dont like wray and nephew and so this reminding me of it put me off a bit, but that’s personal. It is worth a try, and if nothing else the artwork on the bottle is attractive enough to add some character to your rum cabinet.
sad that Two James put their name to this rum. Tried it need and had a hard time getting it down. Used in a tiki drink some of the flavors came alive.
A weak seven. I would say this rum needs to be used as a mixer. Only recommendable as a sipper if you truly love rum. It's very very funky but a little too harsh to sip. Still, the funk is delicious and would spice up any cocktail wonderfully.
This one is just too funky for me. No way I can drink it neat. Trying it with ice now but it is still overpowering.
If you like a super funky Jamaican rum this one is all for you. I will come back and raise my rating if I can find a nice way to enjoy this rum. Not very expensive, sub $30 for me in Chicago.
This is the Laphroaig 10 year of Jamaican Rum if you know what I mean.
