Rum just doesn't get better than this.
Big overripe banana, fresh cut grass, raw cane juice, papaya, butter, funk. Surprisingly silky for the category, the ABV and funk are there, but don't overwhelm an experienced drinker.
Perhaps not one for people who need wood in their rum.

What's not to love with a full blown 63% overproof from Jamaica ... Beautiful flavours mixed with the funk ... Yes a bar must

Definitely a contender vs. Wray & Nephew. Big blasts of overripe banana and hot kerosene. Good stuff.

This is a great alternative to Wray & Nephew Overproof. In my opinion (and it may be a fact) this has more esters than W&N.

Le meilleur mixer overproof que je connaisse. Un véritable stinky rum dunder style et distillé en pot still. Incroyablement puissant et avec des notes douces de réglisse et de fruit à noyau très mur. Terrific en ti punch et peut se boire pur aussi mais en petite quantité bien sûr.

I've been a Wray & Nephew fan for a long time, so it took a lot to break me away from my go-to non-agricole rum. Once this hit the palate, I immediately realized how much better it is for cocktails and even straight. Firstly, it tastes cleaner, there are less noticeable congeners presence in the flavor profile and it has a stronger body. Overproofs are always bold ones, but this one stands tall and doesn't coat your mouth with the cloying vegetal and tropical fruits flavors with layers after sipping over time (Unlike the aforementioned previously favored). Rum Bar doesn't leave you with such notorious after effects of other overproofs either, but this is subjective - for me, it's a cleaner buzz. It makes a stellar Jamaican daiquiri...

I'll still got-to Wray if I can't find this, but between the two I'll reach for Rum Bar.

Its interesting how all three of the big overproof whites from Jamaica can each be unique to each other. Of the three, I would say that Hampden's Rum Fire takes first place for my palette, while this one ties with Appleton Estate's Wray and Nephew. It has an incredible aroma and pungency of over-ripe tropical fruits that often reminds me of starburst, if you could imagine starburst without the sugar.
The perfect mix for all three of these is the Jasper's Jamaican Planter's Punch, which uses a lime juice, nutmeg, and angostura bitters syrup in a 1:1 ratio with the rum (check for the recipe to "Jasper's Mix" online). Otherwise, these rums are indispensable when it comes to mixing with fruit juices or for making punches. They also give incredible results when you make a fruit "rhum arrange".

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.

This is the alternative to Wray for the unaged overproof rum in your cabinet and I have to say I'm impressed. It doesn't have the nose of Wray but the taste is very similar. I also find this a little smoother than Wray, the 63% doesn't hit you quite as hard. A very good rum and for the price, well worth having!
