Recommendable to most
If you know what you want and that thing is funk than it's hard to get funkier than Smith and Cross.
Like Laphroaig it's easily one of my favorites for its unabashed pungency. Shocking to the uninitiated and haunting to those who have sipped it straight.
Maybe not a 10 in the overall scheme of Rum balance and flavor but deserving of a 10 for what it does better than most and thats the dunder funk.
This rum tastes like Appleton 12 and Wray and Nephew Overproof got together and had a baby. That Jamaican funk punches you right in the face. Try it neat first to know what you’re dealing with then use it to liven up any cocktail that calls for rum. Love this stuff. It’s a little too potent for me neat but on the rocks...chilled and slight watered down it’s outstanding.
This is for real rum drinkers, even mixing with coke doesn’t diminish the after taste, for me has to be taken in small measures but good stuff
Personally the rum is probably to strong but it has a real nice after taste. I bought it for a punch and the flavors are perfect. Reason for a 7 is that it is quite expensive in the Netherlands. Would it be cheaper it would be a 8.
This is our go to mixer for unaged Jamaican rums. It's a great bottle to keep on hand, useful in so many drinks. It's got the iconic Jamaican funkiness, but nothing overpowering, just enough to be noticeable in a drink
