People say it's crap. What do they know? Embrace the Dunder, I say!
Just water it down so you don't go blind, and experience the essence of Jamaica!

This Is the real thing all the whiners that complain about smell and taste need to go back to suckin on their mommies tit ....Rum is made from sugar cane hence the Molasses smell and taste ...There is a reason that the Jamaican Yardies drink this because its the real deal .....So STOP THE BLOOD CLOT CRYIN ....and enjoy Mon!

Ok...that's rum...overproof...white...but still rum...not my style....but almost 70%! And you can easily dring that! mix with water, sprite or something you like....thats killer machine. But still 70%!!! And easily to drink...that's means thats really good made...even you don't like taste.

I'll never recommend drinking this on it's own. But, if you need to light something on fire...

Il s'agit du blanc overproof de la maison Appleton. C'est un blanc typique jamaïcain avec cette note métallique typique de la maison (probablement trop de rhum de colonne). Pas un mauvais produit mais pas assez riche en esters pour vraiment mettre le coup de pied au fesse que peut mettre un rum bar ou encore un fire velvet.

Original review 4/17:

You should know what you're getting into if you ask/reach for this rum. This ain't no Bacardi. You're going to get lots of funk, rotten bananas, rubber, and ethanol on the nose. Loads of fruit. The flavor... I can't really describe. There's so much going on! I love the concentrated flavor.

If this is an example of raw Jamaican distillate, it's easy to see why Jamaican rums (of any age) are so popular among rum aficionados. Like IPAs, they're a bit of an acquired taste, but they are almost unfailingly interesting, and more often than not, delicious.

I only had it neat, but I look forward to trying it in a Wray & Ting and other cocktails someday soon.

7+

Update 11/17: Screw it. This rum is so straightforward, tasty, and versatile, I'm giving it an 8. Not only does a little bit jazz up any cocktail, it does wonders when added to any 80-proof sleeper rums you have lying around gathering dust. I also vastly prefer the flavor profile (not the strength—the profile) of this to Rum Fire, though I'm still looking forward to trying Hampden Rum Bar Overproof sometime. (Update, I prefer this to RBO, but only just.)

8-

Update 12/19 - Rum Fire has grown on me quite a bit. The particular fruits it leans it leans toward in its profile are still not my favorite, but there's just something magic about it. It's taken the top spot for Jamaican white overproof in my book. I love Worthy Park but Rum-Bar Overproof just felt very lackluster in terms of funk, leaning more toward grassy. But they're all delicious :)

This is an utterly unique rum. Came across it on the Turtle Bay cocktail list. A Ting Ray perhaps isn't for everyone, but the strength of the rum means that its character doesn't get lost or seem diluted in combination with the other ingredients. Great way to start an evening.

The dunder pit was working in overdrive when they got this one going... botanicals and flavor for days... but heavy duty. This is the estranged crazy Uncle of rum that has lots of good stories! Only good if you are ready for it.

It is rare to find something that hasn't been tinkered with these days. In my opinion this is what rum is supposed to be. It doesn't necessarily lend itself to drinking neat, although personally I like it like that. Clearly not for everyone. I appreciate the smoother more sugary rums as well, but this one is special.

This could go with anything and more or you could rub it on you the best rum ever
