Recommendable to most
The blast from the nose lets you know quick that isn't anything that is a standard rum. The collection of flavors such as pepper, tobacco, sugar cane and dark chocolate make this rum something to enjoy in excellent cocktails or on its own.
This a great mixing rum! it´s strong and it´s full of funky flavors. It boosts up any cocktail and is of course one of the staples in the tiki drink world.
You have to respect a label that tells it how it is. This is probably one of the closest rums on the market on how rum use to be. Most will not enjoy the strong flavor compared to a more tamed aged rum but all should try it to appreciate other types. I use this for some Zombie mixed drinks.
The perfect rum for classic Jamaican styled cocktails. Heavy aromas of tropical fruits, smoked wood and tobacco.
A big mouth feel of leather, oak, sweet peppers & spice. A very long finish with hints of vanilla, molasses and rubber. Opens with a little water to reveal tropical fruits and orange notes.
Navy strength rum it IS. This mammoth of a rum has so much esters there isn't a cocktail out there that will tame it. The flavor will always shine through and this flavor is classic Jamaican pot still style. Although aggressive, it is a must try.
light amber minimal legs. nose of leather, tropical fruits & leather, not nearly as many alcohol vapors as you would expect for a 57% rum. The alcohol hits the tongue like a mack truck but dissipates quickly leaving a nice sweetness behind. notes of pineapple and clove. This rum makes a killer cocktail but does ok on its own in a glass with a couple ice cubes.
Smith and Cross is perhaps an acquired taste...but even with a touch of coke, has a strong after taste. This would not make my rum cabinet at home.
