To the uninitiated, Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum is merely the top-selling high strength rum in the world.

In its native Jamaica, however, this crystal-clear rum is legendary.

In the country known for its rum, it is the rum of choice. In fact, it currently accounts for more than 90% of all rum sold in Jamaica.

It is equally enjoyable in an authentic Jamaican rum punch, a Mai Tai, a daiquiri, or in any popular mixer.

It is also the 'secret ingredient' in many proprietary and signature drinks found all over the world.

Review: I was introduced to the John Wray & nephew White Overproof Rum in the 1960s by a Jamaican who had moved to Helsinki a few years earlier. At that time its strength was 150 proof, far above the watered-down version of today, that still is very nice (it goes without saying that the 75 proof dishwater they are selling as rum is not rum, just a rum-like beverage). It was so good in a variety of drinks, and after practising with a bottle or two, it was nice even neat. Highly recommended!

Review: Many types of spirits have brands that taste similar to each other but that cannot be said of this unique rum. It truly is a wonderful drink with a deep, rich memorable flavour and, as others have mentioned, an enjoyably intense warmth.

Review: This rum was offered to me in a pub in Teignmouth. The landlord beckoned me to the bar, which was swarming with fishermen. 'I hear you like rum?' he asked. He set up a shot of this clear nectar...'don't sniff it' he said smiling. I swigged it down in one. Relishing the beautiful slow burn, and the myriad of wonderful flavours, I grinned and proffered my glass for another. The fishermen welcomed me as one of theirs. This exceptionally well balanced and delicious little gem is now a permanent fixture in my capacious drinks cabinet. A worthy treat for any spirit lover.

Review: I had a good laugh reading the review where the guy threw up, this is the ultimate Rum when it comes to knock out power and is not for the average drinker. It is over proof so you could run your car on this stuff. Having said that, it mixes very well it has a very distinctive taste and once you have had it in a drink you will never forget it.

Review: I learned about Wray from a co-worker born in Jamica. It is rare that I will drink anything else these days. It is powerful and clean. Not very tasty but mixes well. A few shots and your are flying high. I have been falling down and never had a hangover. It is by far the cleanest, purest source of alcohol I have ever had. I have gotten a hangover from "everpure" but not this. Compared to 151 (which burn a hole in my gut) nothing beats Wray!

Review: Without a doubt, this rum is one of the worst I have ever tasted in my life. I've tried most rums from Trinidad (excellent), Barbadoes (excellent) etc etc. How I came about tasting this particular garbage juice, was at a friend's apartment. I opened up the freezer to get some ice, and I saw the same bottle of rum that had been sitting there for about a year. I asked my friends why they hadn't drunk it, and they laughed, and bet me 20 dollars that i couldn't take a shot of it. Being the brave idiot that I am, I took them up on the offer. They poured me a shot (all of them laughing), I took the ICE COLD shot of this s**t, and it went down like regular high proof rum.. not a problem.. until.... about 5 seconds after I took the shot, this disgusting aftertaste took over my mouth.. I can only compare it to what i would think rotting meat stuffed inside underwear that someone had worn for a month without washing or changing it would taste like.. steeped in vodka. .. I threw up into the kitchen sink like 10 seconds after taking the shot. Apparently I wasn't the only one who had done this either. I was sceptical.. maybe my friends had played a joke on me, and put something in the rum? .. turns out, I got the opportunity to try it at someone's house that I didn't know, who weren't associated with my other friends in anyway. THE EXACT SAME PUTRID TASTE. DO NOT BUY THIS. IT IS TERRIBLE.

Review: I was introduced to this by a colleague of mine.
When a cocktail calls for an OP (overproof) rum this is what goes in.
I drink mine on the rocks.
DON'T be scared off by its ABV, it is nowhere near as harsh as you would imagine, in fact it is wonderfully refined.
As you lift it to your mouth for the first time you do it with some apprehension, expecting a 'absinth-like' burn.
You are then pleasantly surprised by it, in fact you don't even know you are drinking 120 proof spirit until you stand up to pour yourself another!

Review: This is one of the sweetest rums i have tasted.
Excellent as a mixer and ok on its own. You have no idea you are drinking an over 60% abv.

Producer Information

Appleton Estate is the oldest and most famous of all of Jamaica's sugarcane estates. It is nestled in the fertile Nassau Valley on either side of the Black River in the Southwest of Jamaica. The origins of Appleton Estate date back to 1655 when the English captured Jamaica from the Spaniards. Frances Dickinson, whose grandsons Caleb and Ezekiel were the earliest known owners of the Appleton Estate, took part in that conquest of Jamaica, and it is believed that Appleton Estate was part of the land grant that Dickinson received as reward for his services.
After many generations of ownership by the Dickinson family, the Appleton Estate was sold out of the family in 1845. From then on, it was owned by a procession of prominent Jamaican families, each of whom helped to increase the size and potential of the Appleton Estate by purchasing additional acreage of land planted with sugarcane. During these years, the Appleton Estate was producing several different pot still rums, and it began to gain a reputation as a reliable source for quality rum, a reputation that continues to this day.
Meanwhile, John Wray, a successful rum producer in his own right, opened the Shakespeare Tavern in Kingston, Jamaica. Though no one knew it at the time, this tavern would ultimately contribute to the day when Mr. Wray and the Appleton Estate would join together to guide the Appleton Estate to worldwide acclaim. You see, in his tavern, Mr. Wray made it a practice to serve his patrons the rums that he himself produced. His rums were quite well received. Word began to spread of the quality of Mr. Wray's produce, and as his rums increased in popularity, his own rum production began to prosper. So successful was his venture that in 1862 John Wray invited his nephew, Charles J. Ward, to join him in a partnership. That same year, Wray & Nephew aged rums were awarded three gold medals at the London Exhibition, the first of many to be garnered over the years.
In 1916, the Lindo Brothers & Co purchased Wray & Nephew. Almost immediately thereafter, the new company, J. Wray & Nephew Ltd., purchased the Appleton Estate. Today, J. Wray & Nephew Ltd. produces rums that are unique and distinctly Jamaican. Bottlings include Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum, Coruba Jamaica Rum, Appleton Special Jamaica Rum and the prestigious portfolio of Appleton Estate Jamaica Rums: V/X, Extra and 21 Year Old. Appleton Estate Rums are still produced on the Estate, which encompasses over 11,000 acres of sugar cane as well as a sugarcane refinery and the Distillery.
