Good example of Jamaican funk, just know what you're in for

It's great at what it is meant for and that's in Tiki drinks. Straight? That'll take you a while.

edit- 2 years later? Well, damn if I didn't come all the way around on this one. Enjoyable with a bit of water, but I enjoy it most as an addition to fruit-based drinks.

Full of flavor (overriped fruits, rotting grass, molasses and who knows what else), fantastic nose, high voltage yet manages to be smooth and generally easily sippable.
Ain't probably a rookie anymore as I easily sipped 1/5 of the bottle "na posezení" on the first occasion. Perfect material, I have no complaints whatsoever and I consider it to be too good / waste for being just a mixer. The sweet and pleasant nose is above and beyond and the taste is just addictive as fuck.

Dostal jsem vzoreček od kamaráda.
Už ve vůni pro mne typická Jamajka, vůně zatuchlé trávy tam prostě je. Není naštěstí taková ta čpavková, ale taková jakási uhlazenější. Docela dobře se i přes tu chuť zatuchlé trávy pije.
Kdo má rád Jamajku mohu doporučit, za tu cenu je prostě skvělá.

Overproof with great flavor. This is my preferred Jamaican for building cocktails.

On it's own this tastes too strong for me. I like the funky (almost rotten) banana flavors, but only in cocktails with fruit juices. Nice color, nice smell.

It's fairly dry and it smells and tastes pretty decent. It does have a fairly medicinal flavor to it, which I'm not a fan of and it's nothing too spectacular but it's definitely a decent rum (not too harsh,) and considering it's Navy Proof (114 proof to be exact,) it's an impressive product to say the least. Technically, at that proof, it should probably taste like lighter fluid but it definitely doesn't! I'd probably say it's worth the money if you want a rum with some umph to it. While it may not be worth buying a whole bottle for the average rum drinker, I can safely say that it's worth trying if you have the opportunity to do so.

SC is one of those rums I have to be in the right mindset for. The first sip resets my palate every time.

The nose is straight heat for me. Even after sitting for a bit. But once I take a sip the heat clears. It gives way to pineapple banana spice plus a hint of caramel and butterscotch. Then a long hot finish.

An ice cube or two opens this thing up and makes it even more sipable. Once opened up this thing is straight beautiful Jamaican funk. Absolutely delicious. I’m almost exclusively a sipper but imagine this would mix nice in a cocktail. Will always have one of these on my shelf especially at the sub $30 price.

This reminds me of shipwreck taste wise but smells of a rotting banana which is sobering ironically because it's so odorful. For the strength not terrible, it has burn though, almost every time I take a sip I cough. However with that in mind, it is a full bodied rum, would recommend if strong smells aren't a deal breaker. Overall interesting rum.

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.

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!
