Quintessential Jamaican flavour bomb, although one dimensional

i initially used this to make some homemade Falurnum. It did not turn out as planned, but I then tried it with Cola, but was not that enamoured with it! It is definitely over proof, but the taste was hard to get past! May try this again, but I have too many good dark rums to sample!

Astringent, yes, but lovely and flavorful. Giant, yet subtle. This can raise you up, but also rase you to the ground in no time at all. One of the great overproofs, and a quintessential pairing with Ting, Wray & Nephew is a must for any rum lovers shelving unit. Try a Hemingway Daiquiri with Wray & Neph, and it will change your life. I mentioned the term "astringent" - a very unaffectionate word, but descriptor for a category, not necessarily a put down (sometimes it is). This is the only astringent tasting rum I genuinely respect and enjoy.

I'm not crazy about it, and would probably have to dilute it to unrecognisable in order to enjoy it. Gave it a 6 out of respect for the alcohol content though.

I first tasted this in Jamaica and the locals we quite proud of it and even more so the reaction we had after the first sip or two. Out of kindness they soon served it in a fruit mix which made a most delightful drink. This is the real deal!

...and will taste (relatively) good while doing so.

I've use the 151 proof version (unfortunately, they only make 120 proof now) of this white lightning for everything from spiking a punch to cleaning a road rash wound (from an inexperienced rider using a scooter on the Negril cliff "road").

I've never been sure if you should keep the this one in your bar or your 1st aid kit.
It makes for both, a perfect "Flambé" rum OR a great tasting emergency anesthetic. lol

All kidding aside, I wished they'd bring back the 151...

If you want to stay warm or to clear a cold drink this!

Goed voor als je snel dronken wil worden
Een heldere, witte rum die gedistilleerd is van gegiste melasse met een redelijk sterke ‘body’, Wray & Nephew White is met afstand de meest populaire rum in Jamaica met zijn typische smaak en aroma. Zo populair dat de laatste peilingen stellen dat meer dan 90% van alle verkochte rum in Jamaica van Wray & Nephew is.

Smaakt puur of ‘on the rocks’ super maar doet het ook geweldig in allerlei cocktails of bij het koken & bakken.

I use this rum to soak my rum spices with. I have a rum spice bottle that is for medicinal use. This is the rum to use when making your own spice bottle. Very strong, but always taste better as the night goes on!!!

This rum is serious stuff. When you start to pour your wonder why the bottle has the annoying stopper on it. Have a taste of the rum and yo will realise why. This stuff is strong, its perfect in cocktails of your making vast amounts. Has to be mixed as drinking straight your only trying to do one thing
