Given its reputation and the source of its name, you might expect Screech to be a bit harsh, but it's actually smooth and flavourful. It stands up to cola and can be sipped. Has a nice butterscotch quality to it that I bet would also make it good in eggnog.
This is a decent spirit all around. The color in the glass is nothing less than spectacular. The scent the excellence of this spirit is aware in the nosing and glass. This smoothness is amazingly apparent. The taste is quite flavorful. This is a great spirit I highly recommend this. Straight up no rocks.
Expected a harsh rum that indeed would lead to a screech. Instead is a tasty rum with a nice finish
Having been to Newfoundland I had to give this a try so picked up a bottle while in Michigan. This rum is a blend with a Jamaican base that shines through without off flavors. It's surprisingly smooth, too. Considering the price point, about $19 US in Michigan, it's a fairly good buy. I tried this as usual: neat, neat with water, chilled and on the rocks. It held up wll for all four.
Sugar: 0 to 5 gpl. I was expecting it to be very harsh as it's normally given as a rite of passage or a dare. It's a decent rum with strong taste but not distasteful. Goes well with Coke and I have not tried it with anything else. I did give it a taste with no mix and went back to get some Coke and ice.
Screech was the name Newfoundlanders called their home brew - this is much better stuff, I'm sure. It's in my cupboard now, alongside my favourite Old Sam Demerara (also marketed by the Newfoundland Liquor Corporation).
