This is one of the standards for funky rums. That grassy funk is great on it's own or combined with other rums in mixed drinks. Maybe not best on it's own, but definitely something good and different in mixers, cocktails or punch.
Don't turn you nose up at this unaged ovenproof rum. This is magic in a bottle. This ain't for frat boys slam shots (like Bacardi 151 back in the day).
Terroir; this is what Jamaica tastes like.
This stuff is funkier than Bootsy Collins drinking a funk-shake that he millked of some freaky funk-ball.
Drink it with a little water if it is too hot for you. A few drops opens it up nicely.
A 1/4 Oz in a cocktail will bring the funk to any drink.
This is a noteworthy bottle to have and a conversation piece for friends and guests, but I don't touch it a lot. To be honest I'll take a bottle of Rum Fire before this, but that's like comparing sitting on 100 pounds of dynamite vs. 110 pounds of dynamite, lighting the fuse, and expecting a different result. I just like the funk of Rum Fire a little better, but they have the same purpose; To blow you off our ass in funk and strength. For me Rum Fire, and WR and used as a condiment in certain drinks. Not a sipper, and not a base mixer although I have not tried a Wray in Ting yet.
I’m not one for white, or, unaged rums. But uncharacteristically, I found myself on the precipice of being my wife’s in-home rum expert for a Halloween party punch. Naturally, Jamaican is my punch go-to. But to please an uneducated rum palate, and still make a party-pleasing, “boozy punch”, my first to mind is the legendary J Wray white. Hit the mark, nice added funk, strong drink.
Personally did not enjoy but its useful for cocktails due to proof, not saying its bad just not for me flavor wise.Try it you never know what you'll like.
