Favourite naval strength I've tried yet. Great for Tiki drinks.
Nose: Very rich. Honey and Maraschino cherry.
Feel: Little Oily, followed by a sharp bite from the booze.
Taste: Not for sipping. Good funky taste I would expect from a Jamaican. Quite heavy sugar. Great in cocktails which call for a single rum as it carries lots of flavour as well as alcohol.
Presentation: A little boring, but clean.
Cost/Value: 38 CAD. Worth it.
nez parfumé avec des notes de gâteau. Une vraie explosion en bouche avec des notes pâtissières et de fleur d'oranger
This is a rum with a reputation. I think of it as the devil in a bottle...with a cork; it just burns like Hell. However, that flavor really cuts through the other ingredients, and ensures there's something to your drink. And, because of its strength, you don't have to use as much as other rums.
Here's my Hot Toddy:
2 tsp brown/black sugar
1/2 a small lemon
1/4 stick of cinnamon
2 whole cloves
1oz. Smith & Cross
enough hot water to top off an 8oz mug
Gran bel rum!
Complesso, molto intenso e persistente. Note eteree, speziate, di caramello e legno. Equilibrato.
Lascia un ottimo finale di legno dolce che non se ne va più, e quando se n'è andato, ne vorresti ancora!
Con i suoi 57 gradi e le sue spiccate note eteree non piacerà a tutti, ma è un ottimo rum jamaicano, autentico.
Ottimo anche il rapporto qualità/prezzo!
Such a cool rum. Really, really funky, lots of hogo, great in cocktails. I don't think I would drink this neat, but then again I don't drink anything neat. I use my rums for mixing, and this is one of my favorites. Makes great punches too.

Style rum. Very very strong taste and flavour.
Not for everyone and very potent!
You have to respect a label that tells it how it is. This is probably one of the closest rums on the market on how rum use to be. Most will not enjoy the strong flavor compared to a more tamed aged rum but all should try it to appreciate other types. I use this for some Zombie mixed drinks.
Almost feels like this has a tequila-like taste to it -- might just not be for me.
I love mixing with this, as the flavor of this rum can stand up to limes, sugar, and almost anything else you throw in.
a bit bitter..and it got ATTITUDE

The smell is rich, sugary, heavy molasses.

Maybe the Laphroaig of rum 10 out of 10
If you know what you want and that thing is funk than it's hard to get funkier than Smith and Cross.
Like Laphroaig it's easily one of my favorites for its unabashed pungency. Shocking to the uninitiated and haunting to those who have sipped it straight.
Maybe not a 10 in the overall scheme of Rum balance and flavor but deserving of a 10 for what it does better than most and thats the dunder funk.
