Description:
After the British Navy adopted its daily ration of a half pint of 160 proof rum, called a 'tot', the naval rum connection spread, and from the 1730's a thriving export trade developed.

Wood's 100 is one such rum, originating from what was known as British Guyana in South America.

It has been produced in the same way for over 150 years and acquired by Wm Grant & Sons in October 2002.

Distilled at The Diamond Distillery, Guyana. It is produced using a combination of spirit made in both pot and continuous stills, from the finest sugar cane grown along the banks of the River Demerara.

It is matured for 1.5 to 3 years in oak before being blended. The sugar cane produced by this enormous life-giving river makes the sweetest sugar cane in the Caribbean.

At 57% ABV, It's one of the highest ABV dark rum on the market - yet appreciated for its smooth, mellow taste.

It has gained a reputation amongst bar-tenders as 'the real deal' - an essential cocktail ingredient and respected as a high quality, niche brand amongst the drinks cognoscenti.

Can be enjoyed straight, on ice or with a mixer such as cola or lemonade. Also added as a 'float' ingredient to cocktails to give a spicy kick.

Review: At The Rum Project, we are great fans and promoters of a British tradition, maintained and enjoyed by untold thousands of sailors and officers in the British Royal Navy. The twice-a-day tot of BRN rum continued until about 1971.

Unfortunately mentioning the British Royal Navy and their rum and Lamb's in the same breath is not fair or accurate. The original and most current formula for over a hundred years was blended in secret under British government order by the E & D Mann Company. That one and only formula passed to Pussers and its Blue Label, not Lambs.

Lambs was not and is not the real British Navy Rum. This is not to say that it isn't a fine rum in of itself, but it does not represent the colourful history and tradition of real British Navy Rum. Only Pussers can and does make that claim, and has no equal in our view. Carry on...

Review: I served for many years in the RN and still remember The Tot - really there can never be anything that equals it, and the "fug" that used to hover over my bunk when I woke up after a tot. Woods is THE BEST on the market - smooth, sweet and lulls you into a sense of security as it sneaks up on you after a couple. Problem is now in retirement in Spain I can no longer get my hands on it - but I still have my memories which I manage to revive when I visit the UK. A truly Great Rum, long may it remain.

Review: Be careful it sneaks up on you, wonderfully warming rich and silky. I prefer mine with a splash of water like a scotch but mixes well (if you must!) and the richness makes it easy to sip neat, but little sips and slowly.

Review: If I could only drink one drink for the rest of my life it would be Woods & coke. It is just the perfect mixing rum, ever. Just don't put much in, its VERY strong.

Review: I spent time in the RN but never received the tot, too young then too late. Since then I have developed a taste for rum and Woods in particular. More in the cooler months, I enjoy it neat for the strong flavour that lingers after the hatch was opened and always have Woods in the home where it lives in a lead crystal decanter. Woods Rum is also ideal for making a top quality "Rum Butter" for Xmas puddings enjoyed occasionally all year. Because that strong rich flavour is essential, so as the RB melts onto the pudding it is divine, however I would not drive for a long time after that. Rum is also often enjoyed in coffee in our home, though an inferior brand is the norm for that.

Review: If there is a better rum than Woods then Ive yet to taste it. If Woods were a lady then youd get down on one knee and propose immediately, then blow all your cash on her on a huge wedding, amazing honeymoon and that car and house you always dreamt of.
Yeah, its that good.
If youre a connoisseur of some of the finer beers but have yet to really get into spirits, then I can suggest that this rum is akin to Duvel or Innis and Gunn. Both of those are tipping the heady percentage of ale yet make for easy, refreshing drinking. And thats what so great about Woods, its a heady old charmer at 57% but its never over indulgent upon your senses. Its warm and luxuriant and has an almost demerara sugar softness and richness that you wont find with most rums, but hold it on your tongue and theres a hint of spice at that back that gives it a welcome kick.
Serve this with coke, ginger ale, or make a fantastic Mojito out of it, whatever you do, just make sure its in your house.
