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.
This is an excellent pot still that is no where near as funky as some others. This has an amazing aroma of molasses and vanilla. The taste is amazing for an over proof pot still. I really pick up tobacco, vanilla, molasses and a slight fruity taste possibly pineapple. It does have a nice warm finish. I highly recommend.
Superb on its own. Heavy notes of molasses. Very much a Jamaican run. Wait, my bartender just made me a rum Manhattan with it. Woah. Try it. GAI (get after it)
Foarte spirtos (57%) pentru gustul meu. Totuși "on the rocks" se simt ceva arome. Un pic dulceag. Probabil în mix-uri se primește mai bine.
Desi este un rom overproof am reusit sa-l beau on the rocks, cu greu dar am reusit. Are o aroma inconfundabila, total diferita de ce am baut pana acum. Nu persista ca alte romuri dar merita pentru originalitate.
Could easily sip this. Good traditional jamaican, you can definitely feel it's navy strength. I have had better high ester jamaicans though.

Deze rum is gedistilleerd op het Hampden Estate in Jamaica. Het is een blend van 6 maanden oude Wedderburn rum en 1,5 tot 3 jaar oude Plummer rum. Resultaat is een hele zware pot still rum met een compleze aroma.
Met deze kun je fantastische Daiquiri cocktails maken.
I don't like overproof rum. I just don't get it. But, I have to say this rum offered more than just a hot burn and a fuel like after taste. This one is for a pina colada or something of that nature. I tried it in Coke and could not taste one hint of the soda except the bubbles! But with better than 151 or White overproof. There's actually a hint of a rum taste there, after the burning stops!
A bit too strong to sip neat, but absolutely fantastic in cocktails as the supporting actor (rum number 2). Try a classic Mai-Tai with Appleton 12 and top with Smith&Cross - I've never been to Jamaica, but I imagine this is what it tastes like!
I stumbled across this rum at a local seafood restaurant. It was not bad but not real special to my taste buds either. Not real strong on flavor, slight citrusy taste and maybe a bit oaky in the finish. I expected more from the way the bar tender talked it up.
