Not my favorite. I am sorry to all the fans who highly recommend this. I plan to revisit this review (if I can...)

An example of the typical funky Wedderburn style. Only lightly aged, but very aromatic nonetheless. The colour is fake, but forget about it, it's the aroma and flavour that matter. And these are really nice in this case, almost perfect. What stands out against similar rums of this style is the navy strength of this Smith & cross. You can drown it in cola and it's still very funky and aromatic.

A strong fruity smell, oily, alcoholic, sweet. The taste is dark and heavy, light fruity and sweet, some wood.
A nice strong one.

Yes its a funky Jamaican there is no doubt
For me a few drops of water to take it down to say 50% opens it up nicely as a sipper
Surely at 27EUR Germany it's a steal compared to distillery bottles or Velier
But you don"t get the aged barrel influence here. A great spirit driven taste experience!

A pure pot still distillate that stands on its own. One of the most tasteful rums you can come across and together with the ABV of 57% it will get your attention! Nosing this will give you a hint of what to expect; rotten bananas, napalm orange and about every other fruit in various stages of decay are present. Doesn't sound good, but it sure smells good!

Describing the flavours on the palate is a bit tricky as it is so packed with different aromas it is hard to get them all; when you focus on one specific part of the taste six others come rushing by in an instant. So I won't even try and just say it is very present, very fruity and very bold. Don't let the navy strenght fool you; this is not a navy style rum, it is just bottled at a gunpowder proof ABV.

Don't be a fool and start with this as your first rum as it might scare you off forever but once you are a bit used to dry and high-ester rums you simply must try this fellow. Don't be afraid for it as in the end it is a rather mellow spirit, despite the 57% and the strong and bold flavours.

An extra mark for Smith & Cross because they have the guts to put this remarkable rum in this form and at this price on the market!

This rum blew me away, what a nice balance of strength, Hogo, ripe bananas... from other reviews I expected to be unbearable neat, but maybe I’m a masochist it works for me. Trying classic rum punch cocktail now, a great addition to my bar for drinkers that go beyond Diplomatico, Zacapa, and ElDorado.

As others have said, this rum punches you in the gut and throws rotten bananas in your face - and delivers the most complex and wonderful result to a grown up experienced enough to appreciate it. It turns a shaken piña colada into a banana flavored cocktail and paired with a high-end agricole, it delivers an elevated Mai Tai.

As for enjoying it on its own, I’m going to accept my limitations as a lover and admit that I need something a little less batship crazy.

I’m new to this whole rum world, and I’m happy to have found this bottle in the beginning of my journey. I love high proof bourbons and honestly love this rum just as much.

Like a punch in the face. Cannot drink this sucker straight, but I keep trying.

This one has a good demerara like flavor to it and goes very well in the cocktails I make.
