I used to think this was only good as pure rocket fuel. The older I get and more rums I try, the more I realise just how bloody tasty it is!

Only ever had it with a ting (and how that drink isn't call a tingwray is still shocking for me), but I really enjoy that combo.

Good kick and a Strong aroma of bananas that brings back memories of being on a beach in Montego. Only tolerable with a mixer. Not for me.

Lovely overripe tropical fruits, banana, oil, rubber and salt make this a great Jamaican standard.

Let’s get a few things straight here. This is NOT Jamaican funk. If you want funk go get some Hampden or Smith & Cross. There is no comparison. This has a whisper of funk and happens to be Jamaican. That whisper is wiped out by a pleasant lime and cane flavor. It has plenty of punch as you might expect with an overproof. Some real burn too. Good mixer. Good shooter. Bad sipper. Pussers and Plantation overproof beats this stuff down completely. No contest. Malecon is so much better you would pour the Wray & Nephew down the drain with a huge smile. Try the 3 above for yourself and thank me later.

My first overproof. Smoother than I expected. Not bad at all.

That pungent Jamaican rum aroma is what keeps me buying this bottle. I highly recommend mixing with lime juice and grapefruit soda. Probably my favorite way to enjoy W&N.

Does not make the best daiquiri. Its too strongly flavored and high ABV for such a delicate drink.

I dare say its a great bottle to 'do some shots' with friends.

Hey, all things are relative! If you've picked this up after previously buying Bicardi, this is going to blow your mind. Fire, brimstone, lemon and that weird ass funk, that even diluted in a cocktail, you're sure not going to miss. I mean this is Notting Hill Carnival in a glass.

But if you're coming from the land of pot still madness - clairin, Rum-Bar, Rum Fire, Rivers Royale - or blanc agricole, this is very manageable, and possibly a little tame, but hey, it's Β£26 rather than Β£53!

In all honesty, this is a little industrial, if way more flavourful than the same distillery's Kingston 62. A little oily, fragrant with citrus, dry with cane coming out along the way ,you can drink this straight if that's your thing. In a cocktail however, it adds depth and a kick to a Hurricane. The smell is subtle por still, the flavour, depths of sugar, and a bit of that chemistry lab weird vibe people seem to either live or hate.

I was looking for a cut price clairin to bring the funk to cocktails, and I think this will hit the spot. Mixing this 50/50 with Copalli really lifts both, bringing balance, power and flavour all to the mix. I totally get why bars keep this to hand, and also why it's Jamaica's No.1.
