      A powerful and distinctive rum and a great mixer for cocktails

      Having worked in a bar that sold Wood's I have seen my fair share of fallout from this beverage, especially certain customers that insisted on doubles. At 57% it is serious dark rum, and though you can taste how alcoholic it is, it still gives a rounded caramel flavour. Not for the faint hearted I would not recommend this for the novice rum drinker, but a jumping point to a greater depth of flavour, especially if you become tired over over sweetened spiced rums.

      Favoured mixer was always cola, however I preferred it with Pineapple juice or Ginger Beer, as this tones done the overbearing presence of the rum, but you can still taste it's there!

      An asset to a cocktail menu, and preferable to some of the other over-proof rums I have tried, this is far more pleasent than the likes of Wray and Nephews (though is a little weaker). This used to be the floating spirit in some of our house cocktails and shooters. And some brave customers would have a snifter at the end of the night rather than a whisky, would certainly warm your cockles.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I spent a night on this stuff - my friends 18th and (from what i can remember of the night) it was great. I'm not sure what percent this is but it is quite strong, I had about 6 before i couldn't walk in a straight line aymore! It has that hit when you sniff it's aroma, giving off almost an alcoholic vapour, so before you drink it you know it is going to be good. I found it impossible to sip - it has to be shoted due to it's strength, but it glides down smoothly and leaves your mouth feeling hot and feeling like you could breate fire!!but happily staisfied with the taste. I also found it gives no nasty hangovers the morning after so it must be quite pure (although it does do a number on your breath making anyone else stay several paces away from you!!) It gets you quite nicely plastered and tastes great (if you like the taste of strong rum)and is great fun to shot in a big group as the more you shot, the happier you get and - well you know the rest ;) !!
