This rum is the choice for the legendary and iconic "welcome rum punch" when you touch down on the island - yeah mon!

A rum that I first tried at the beginning of my rum journey and I found myself disliking it greatly. After I started drinking more rums I returned to this funky clear spirit and found it to be enjoyable!

Pretty good as far as Rum goes. A bit strong but I love it!

Had a rum tasting on a sunny afternoon, because why not. Wrey & Nephew White Overproof simply cannot be mixed because you get the funky glue coming straight through from every single imaginable soda. Tried it neat once, and believe me, drinking gasoline goes down easier. Bottle looks boring, but the label design is very nice.

If you ever just need to get drunk this is the real deal, High octane entertainment. As some reviews said it tastes and smells like gasoline, well yes sort of. but gas is worse.. I found I mix some Guava or Mango nectar and a little Lemonade or orange juice it masks the gas taste,LOL. but I still drink it sometimes it really does Git-R-Done

Only thing subtle about this rum is the name. I finally came to an armed truce with this rum by adding 3 parts oregat, 2 parts Rose's lime juice, and 2 ounces of branch water to two parts rum.

Once you gang tackle this rum, it goes along peacefully. The banana OVERTONES have to be beaten into submission.

Which gives me an idea. Gonna have to try this as an ACTIVE ingredient in Bananas Foster.

Will get back to you on that one.

If I equated this rum to music like I do with coffee, this is Naw'leans Neville Brothers/The Meters funk of the 80's and 90's. Intense and personal.

This is a very strong Jamacan flavoured white rum. Even a half ounce in a rum and coke is overpowering and not my kind of drink. It is like drinking Appleton VX with twice the flavour but only 1.5 times the alcohol.

A good cocktail rum with funky notes, very suitable in drinks

I bought my first and last bottle of this crap a few weeks ago. I can't believe that this is the top selling rum in Jamaica and they drink it straight. All I can say is that life over there must have gotten much worse since I last visited 22 years ago.

It tastes like turpentine or cachaca. It is downright disgusting. Somehow, I managed to drink a half bottle over a one week period. What was I going to do with the rest? I tried using it for lighter fluid for my BBQ pit, but it would not even light. Then I thought about using it as toilet bowl cleaner, but was wary of it ruining my plumbing. Saving it to cure a stray mangy dog was another option.

So, if anyone knew what to do with this, it would be found in Beach Bum Berry's Potions Of The Caribbean book. Sure enough, there was one recipe to tame this "vile" liquid with Jasper's Rum Punch. It is basically the holy Caribbean trinity of rum, lime juice, and simple syrup, but Jasper's adds a much higher proportion of Angostura Bitters and West Indies spices like cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Instead of those ground seasonings, I happened to have a bottle of Peg Leg Pete's Pirate Sauce on hand, which did the trick. In other words, this beast needs to be drowned in seasonings to be made drinkable. And yes, I made a batch of this punch with the rest of the bottle and finished the whole thing off in one long day. Somehow, I was still walking, but was married to the toilet for the next few days. NEVER AGAIN!!!!

I also found out much later that the Jamaican sparkling grapefruit drink called Ting can be added to this to cut the awful taste. The drink is called Ting With A Sting. I finally found a bottle of Ting and added a couple of ounces of Hamilton Jamaican Gold to greatly improve the taste. It is still one disgusting drink, but after a few with Wray & Nephew, you will be too plastered to know how disgusting this combo really is.
