Overproof Rum White Rum

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
