Kristallklar im Glas.
In der Nase hässlich und stechend. Verrottete Früchte in Abbeizmittel eingelegt, ist der erste Eindruck. Warten - warten - warten - und Alles wird anders. Du tauchst ein und unter der Oberfläche öffnet sich ein Paradies von Düften. Grasige und Blumige Düfte vermengen sich mit allerlei tropischen Früchten, Ananas, Banane, Papaya, Vanille und herberen Richtung wie Tabak, Leder und einen Tropfen Olivenöl.
Am Gaumen nicht zu erwartend fruchtig und weich. Da lebt eine klare liebliche Linie auf, Früchte und noch mehr Früchte, dazwischen Gräser, Zuckerrohr und gelb blühende Blumen. Diese führen zur Basis eines etwas Grösserem, das entdeckt werden will.
Im Abgang liegen die Früchte lange auf der Zunge, das Zuckerrohr bleibt noch etwas länger darauf kleben.
Ein absolut toller Mix-Rum auf jeden fall für Fruchtpunch mit Punch. Für Mixer, Entdecker, Mutige, Ester-Bomben Liebhaber und alle Anderen natürlich auch. -8
Crystal clear in the glass.
In the nose ugly and pungent. Rotten fruit soaked in paint stripper is the first impression. Wait - wait - wait - and everything changes. You dive in and under the surface opens a paradise of scents. Grassy and floral scents mingle with all sorts of tropical fruits, pineapple, banana, papaya, vanilla and more tart directions like tobacco, leather and a drop of olive oil.
On the palate, not expectedly fruity and soft. There lives up a clear lovely line, fruit and more fruit, interspersed with grasses, sugar cane and yellow blooming flowers. These lead to the base of something bigger that wants to be discovered.
On the finish, the fruit lingers on the tongue for a long time, the sugar cane lingers on it a bit longer.
An absolutely great mix rum in any case for fruit punch with punch. For mixers, explorers, brave, ester bombs lovers and all others of course. -8
This is a great value rum. I can’t say for certain better than Rum Fire but it’s still powerful. You’ll get funk if you’re looking for it. Honestly it’s excellent in Mai Tais with another aged Jamaican.
This is a pure pot still rum consisting of a blend of WPEL, WPL and WPE rum from the Worthy Park distillery.
The nose is funky and very pungent. It’s of course fruity and it’s also possible to detect olive and vegetal notes.
In mouth and palate it’s still fruity and I detected pineapple and banana. I also recognize overriped fruits and spices.
The finish is just medium long and shorter than the other White Overproof Jamaicans.
Overall it’s the most pungent, maybe too pungent for my taste, of the big Jamaican three.

You really need to be a fan of Jamaican funk to enjoy this. The nose hits you with fermented grass, almost like ensilage. There’s also a fruity sweetness to it with notes of mango, banana and eucalyptus. It’s probably designed as a mixer but I only tried it neat. Actually very drinkable considering the 63%, with slightly grassy notes of eucalyptus, banana and white pepper. It’s a very potent bottle and might not be for everyone, but enjoy it!
Worthy Park, 63%, white overproof. Aromas of pure Jamaican funk! Lots of green bananas, olives in brine, blue cheese, petrol or varnish. On the palate, hot(because 63%), ester heavy with green herbaceous undertones. Vegetal and sweet with almond notes. I love this rum. The funkier the better.
Definitely the worst I ever tried without mixing. Smells so strongly like bananas that I didn't want to eat a single banana for a month. Doesn't go with Coca-Cola either. Perhaps a fantastic ingredient in a dessert, but absolutely undrinkable. 11.December i romkalenderen 2017
One of my few experiences with unaged white rums. 63%ABV(!) rum from Jamaica distilled by pot distillation. Really strong funky charge that is especially intended for cocktails.
Bottle: High, such a standard for cheaper spirits.
Smell: A fruity red currant spirit at first taste. Quite a strange smell for a rum. The rum smells of red fruits (red currants, raspberries) and ferment, but nothing else.
Flavour: Strong fruity spirit (something between plum brandy and currant brandy).
Summary: This rum is really more suited to cocktails. It's not that it's low quality, but it doesn't give me the right pleasure in terms of taste. I prefer the plum brandy for straight drinking.
Fantastic Jamaican overproof, with the quintessential banana notes, burnt sugar, molasses and fruits. A little too hot to drink straight but it does mellow with a splash of water and release a lot of flavor. Excellent as a mixer.
The funk is strong in this one. If you think about mixing this rum with something, think again. The over ripe banana taste goes through anything and it's glorious.
