I am typically a Rye Bourbon drinker, but I do love to grab a bottle of rum from time to time. I’ve typically grabbed Plantation or El Dorado. This one is very strong and would suggest on ice if you plan to sip. Love the spicy fruity flavor. Needs some chill and a bit watered down from the ice to tame it. It’s 57% Alc, if you’re surprised it’s strong.... well that’s on you.
Look at this! Tastewise it's a 7 at least. But seeing the low price, it's even an 8. Full frontal Jamaican Funk in navy strength. Good not only in a quality drink, but also neat - not lying, I tried that and it opened the door for me towards Jamaican Rum that I love ever since.
I wasn't expecting to like this one as much as i did but it really is such an interesting rum! Its probably the most flavourful rum i have tried yet and instantly makes any cocktail exciting. I can also drink this on its own or with ice because i enjoy the funky burn but this definitely shines best in cocktails like Mai Tais!
As a sipper, 7 is being generous. Funky stuff, to be sure. But as a mixer in Tiki recipes? An absolute 10. Indispensable in any serious bar, hits the funky notes you need to make an unforgettable mix.
Absolutely cracking rum as it really brings the funk and a real complex flavour . Not a sipping rum for me unless In an old fashioned. Great in painkillers and a daiquri with it is quite the experience. Upon first taste I wasn’t sure but with time absolute loving the overripe banana funk of it
This is probably a little strong in proof and profile for a supper, but makes an amazing base spirit in a punch or cocktail.
Purchased a bottle of Smith and Cross Navy Rum and my first impression was the aroma which reminded me of the Appleton 12 yr rum, however at a much higher ABV. This rum at 57% ABV is too strong to drink on its own but on the rocks, it is delicious. No added sugar, a pure and traditional Jamaican rum.
First, I am most impressed with this being a blend without any added sugar and being so cheap.
The nose strikes you with leather, toast and coconut, cottonsedge, pineapple and cherry. On the palate, caramel and fried banana with an oaky finish and slight burn. Impressively long aftertaste for a decently priced blended rum.
You might need some experience with Jamaican rum to enjoy it, but even Captain Morgan can offer some of that funky fruit, just remember this is dry and navy strength.
A unique and tasty rum with loads of tropical fruit, some spices, a little caramel, chocolate, and a unique funkiness with so much agave on the nose it can be mistaken as a tequila in a blind tasting.
