This is pot still gold rum from the world-famous Worthy Park Estate in Jamaica. The aroma fills the room with spice and dunder and almost off-putting levels of funk...but once you taste this magnificent product, all is right with the world.

In the glass it is pale gold, quite pretty to behold. Nosing it fills the senses with overripe fruit, spices and oak. The flavor is positively sublime and yet mind-stranglingly complex. I love this rum straight up.

So pale, yet packed with flavor. The nose is pure hogo, with rotten fruit and fruity earthy tones. On the palate quite smooth and bursting with fruity funk and almost an oaky peatiness. Beachbum says this is what rums used to taste like. I love time traveling in the glass!

It has taken me years to learn to love this rum and its ability to bring instant richness to any drink. I will add this to other rums straight up for a little kick. Same review for this and the black because they are the same.

This is a pale gold rum with a small amount of time in wood. It has bold, boozy, over-ripe pot still character but not to much wood character. Even 1/2 ounce will slap your favorite rum drink in the face and demand it try harder to please. Great in a Mai tai, navy grog, or sidewinders fang. Also good with coke or tonic and lime on ice.

I like the pot still flavors left in the rum. Great aroma even mixed with coke.

This is so good I put it in coffee on Sundays.

If this is what rums used to be like, then I'd gladly trade the internet for a trip to yesteryear. So fragrant and flavorful. You'd be wise to pick a bottle up for yourself.

They even come in little beer bottle sizes. (350ml?) Perfect for a two person adventure.

I'd call this the gap between Smith and Cross and Wray and Nephew or Rum Fire in the funk department. I'm not sure I would buy it again since I love Smith and Cross, and If I want something funkier I'll just use Rum Fire. I don't see these extra funky rums as sippers or base rums, but used as "condiments" in certain cocktails.

I'm curious how this compares side by side to Dr. Bird which I am trying to get a hold of, because I'm thinking this is the closest thing I have to it.

Rotten Banana, Peppermint, Vanilla Bean? Very difficult to parse, but super funky and I can't get enough of it. Different funk than I'm used to, less 'sharp'

This disappeared just as fast as the Navy. Hamilton for the money is perfect. I could stock Hamiltonโ€™s Line up and Doorlyโ€™s and be pretty set. Except maybe an agricole.

A light, unaged Jamaican rum. Its a bit unsettle if you have it neat, I'd recommend it mostly for mixing in cocktails (which I believe is entirely what it's made for). It does open up more and become more sweet/fruity as it rests in the glass.
