This is a pure pot still rum consisting of a blend of WPEL, WPL and WPE rum from the Worthy Park distillery.
The nose is funky and very pungent. It’s of course fruity and it’s also possible to detect olive and vegetal notes.
In mouth and palate it’s still fruity and I detected pineapple and banana. I also recognize overriped fruits and spices.
The finish is just medium long and shorter than the other White Overproof Jamaicans.
Overall it’s the most pungent, maybe too pungent for my taste, of the big Jamaican three.

You really need to be a fan of Jamaican funk to enjoy this. The nose hits you with fermented grass, almost like ensilage. There’s also a fruity sweetness to it with notes of mango, banana and eucalyptus. It’s probably designed as a mixer but I only tried it neat. Actually very drinkable considering the 63%, with slightly grassy notes of eucalyptus, banana and white pepper. It’s a very potent bottle and might not be for everyone, but enjoy it!
Worthy Park, 63%, white overproof. Aromas of pure Jamaican funk! Lots of green bananas, olives in brine, blue cheese, petrol or varnish. On the palate, hot(because 63%), ester heavy with green herbaceous undertones. Vegetal and sweet with almond notes. I love this rum. The funkier the better.
Definitely the worst I ever tried without mixing. Smells so strongly like bananas that I didn't want to eat a single banana for a month. Doesn't go with Coca-Cola either. Perhaps a fantastic ingredient in a dessert, but absolutely undrinkable. 11.December i romkalenderen 2017
vune sílný banán s dřevitost
chut ostřejší ale sladká
zaver hřeje ale ještě aby ne při 63%
koupit ano z 60%
I've been looking forward to giving this overproof a try and comparing it to the classic Wray & Nephew Overproof. The Rum Bar lineup is also from 🇯🇲 and distilled at Worthy Park. Worthy Park is using molasses for its product and distills with a 18,000L pot still (with a double retort), which can yield 8,000L of rum a day. Rum Bar Overproof comes in at the same 63%ABV as W&N.
On the nose it is caramelized banana, olive, grass, and pepper. Water brings out olive brine, lime and faint cigarette.
The palate is oily. A little too punchy at full strength. Some water brings out a creaminess, vanilla and ginger.
The finish has some bitterness, walnut, and is a bit dry. With water there are roasted almonds, licorice and it is a little sour.
Comparing to W&N, the Rum Bar is more creamy, while the W&N is more spicy. In the end, I have a slight preference for the Rum Bar (well neat anyways). Once this pops up in Ontario I may replace my Wray with it.
What's not to love with a full blown 63% overproof from Jamaica ... Beautiful flavours mixed with the funk ... Yes a bar must
