Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This rum has an inviting dark/rich red colour. While it does have a slight rubbing alcohol smell to it, I found a sweet and spicy odour as well. It's too strong to sip, although I did not experience as much of a burn as I was expecting - It left a nice sweet film on my lips. It's surprisingly good with cola - Fairly strong spice (although I don't know of what) along with a little sweetness. A 6.5 for sure!
This is a reasonable rum and has very little sugar. Contrary to the name it is a Jamaican rum with a decent flavor and good as a mixed drink.
This rum is your standard for drinks. Sipping is a bit harsh. With Sprite it is sweet with a sweet finish. It is cheap enough for a Party rum.
i smell pepper and some notes of wood. very light. some fruit and some orange too.
i taste spice. some wood. some fruit. more fruit. pepper.
6/10. subtract 5 points if you don´t like dry rums!
it comes from jamaica. in the whole it reminds me of the goslings black seal. with a more fruity taste. too easy, too flat. okay for the money to mix your longdrink or cocktail!
Nothing stood out from screech. It just taste like rum. I didnt taste any other thing than alcohol , same with the smell wasn't bad but it didn't suprise we as well.
This was my go to Rum when I was first old enough to drink. There is always a bottle in my cabinet.
I like my rum Un the rocks, but was not impressed with my first drink of Screech. It seems to have a somewhat Metalocalypse flavor at first. However the more I drank the better it got. I will definitely drink it all, but it will probably end up in hot buttered rum
Very tasty.. Good Rum to drink straight up.
I took a bottle or 2 to a reunion of retired Naval personnel, We had a plethora of Rums from many makers. Once the Screech was opened it seemed to disappear into thin air, and the other Rums were left untouched. It was so much smoother than the others and had such a much more satisfying taste that I had to go out and get more.
Realy good taste. You should try it. Don't suit everyone but I like it.
J ai été surpris. Bon petit rhum avec du cola. Pour le prix il est meilleur que bien d autre
Didn't enjoy the taste very much even mixing it with coke. Won't be buying this again
Rhum pas cher avec un gout de le Jamaïque. Rien d'épatant, doux,un petit gout de caramel, vanille et chêne. Idéale pour mixer avec du coke.
A Rum you have to try at least once! Quite a punch; not high on my list, but still in the cabinet.
This really isn't very sippable, so doing a shot is rather nasty. Drinkable if mixed, but not great.
Screech was the name Newfoundlanders called their home brew - this is much better stuff, I'm sure. It's in my cupboard now, alongside my favourite Old Sam Demerara (also marketed by the Newfoundland Liquor Corporation).
Sugar: 0 to 5 gpl. I was expecting it to be very harsh as it's normally given as a rite of passage or a dare. It's a decent rum with strong taste but not distasteful. Goes well with Coke and I have not tried it with anything else. I did give it a taste with no mix and went back to get some Coke and ice.
Having been to Newfoundland I had to give this a try so picked up a bottle while in Michigan. This rum is a blend with a Jamaican base that shines through without off flavors. It's surprisingly smooth, too. Considering the price point, about $19 US in Michigan, it's a fairly good buy. I tried this as usual: neat, neat with water, chilled and on the rocks. It held up wll for all four.
Expected a harsh rum that indeed would lead to a screech. Instead is a tasty rum with a nice finish
Strong lemon and sweet candy taste.
Goes well in mixed drinks or cola.
Not for sipping.
An interesting addition, not a run you over at the liquor store though
Given its reputation and the source of its name, you might expect Screech to be a bit harsh, but it's actually smooth and flavourful. It stands up to cola and can be sipped. Has a nice butterscotch quality to it that I bet would also make it good in eggnog.
