Sublime. My favorite funky Jamaica rum. Perfect for your favorite Tiki drinks, or just mixing with lime and coconut water. Best when it's the star of show; not so much for drinks where a neutral rum is one of a big cast of characters.Best ForRated -2.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2

Delicious, bold Jamaican rum with that beautiful banana-type funk and sweetness that is nuanced and not syrupy. Watch out, though - this is a higher proof (57% I think? vs. many others around 40-42%) and might either need to be moderated in some cocktails - or just served with a warning that it's got a bit of a bite in that sweet!Best ForRated 0.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2
