Rum který pravděpodobně budete buď milovat nebo nesnášet. Za mě perfektní funky Jamajka ze vším co k tomu patří za výbornou cenu i vzhledem k voltazi. Vyborny do drinků i samotné.

I'll be honest, I completely missed the proof when I first bought this, so needless to say, trying a sip of it straight was like getting run over by a fruit truck. It's great in drinks, but sometimes it can be a bit overpowering for people not expecting it—made some Bali Hais for the family and did a 50/50 with S&C and Appleton Signature instead of straight up, and it turned out great.

This is an excellent rum. Of the 21 rums I currently have in my liquor cabinet, this one is my favorite.

It’s hot at a 114 proof, and jam packed with Jamaican hogo, so sipping this isn’t for the faint of heart. It can be done, though for fans of its flavor profile. It’s high quality stuff, and doesn’t have an ethanol burn.

Where this rum really shines, though, is as a mixer. It levels up almost any tiki drink you throw it into. It’s character is noticeable even when blended with other rums. My favorite Mai Tai is made with this stuff. Throw in a little lime juice and simple and have a delicious estery grog. Even a S+C daiquiri is a top notch cocktail. This stuff is goooood for mixing.

Only thing stopping me from giving this a ten is that I’ve only been into rum for a year and just haven’t tried enough to be confident it’s perfect.

Smith and Cross is a Jamaican Rum.

This is an excellent rum. We can feel the Funk and the Dunder.
We can smell bananas, pineapples and very ripe exotic fruits. It's a real Jamaican rum!!!
I love it and highly recommend it. This is not a rum for beginners.

Couple drops of bitters. Bit of vermouth. A delicious Manhattan.

What an explosion of taste and smell. At first it tastes like a good single malt, but then you get the jet fuel and the burn. When your tastebuds finally recover you get spice, funk, ripe bananas and pineapple.

I’m currently going through a bottle of this a week at my home bar, serving myself and 2-3 others regularly. I truly feel that there is no better expression of traditional Jamaican (aged) rum for the price. Although I have heard that it is stupidly expensive in other parts of the world ($28 USD for me).
Drinks that this rum is perfect for:
Jamaican Rum Punch
Queen’s Park
Mai Tai
Jungle Bird
Navy Grog

I was not prepared for good!
I've heard a lot about this rum and many have recommended it. Now understand why.

Overripe fruits and very long finish. I can still taste it as I write this down and 10 minutes have passed. Yes it's a bit strong neat but you always can add a little cold water to pull down the proof a little. Of course it's perfect for mixing. Totally recommend it!

One kickass bottle of rum that will knock you down if you don't keep your guard up. The amount of alcohol in this drink makes it a though rum to sip neat. First the alcohol burn will hit you, a prickly sensation. Once you get past that there is a wonderful flavor to be found with a lots of overripe fruits notes.
For the more casual drinkers, still an awesome bottle of rum. Try it in cocktails or with a big chunk of ice where it will still pack a punch.
