About Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum
This rum contains a powerful banana-funk spice that you can wield when making a cocktail according to Greg in How to Drink episode: What is Rum? Wray and Nephew IS cocktailer rum. Ever heard of Victor Bergeron? You may know him better as Trader Vic, whose chain of cocktail bars claims to have invented the Mai Tai in 1944. Well, what rum was at the heart of Trader Vic's Mai Tai? Wray & Nephew 17-Year-Old Rum, of course!
From humble beginnings at the Shakespeare Tavern in Kingston Jamaica in 1825, Wray and Nephew Rum has grown to become synonymous with Jamaican rum and tiki cocktails. Wray and Nephew first won international acclaim at spirits exhibitions in Europe in the 1860s. By the end of the century, they had won gold medals in London, Paris, and Amsterdam.
In 1916, they bought the other world famous Jamaican rum distillery -- Appleton Estates. Today, brands controlled by Wray & Nephew, who are in turn owned by Campari, account for 90% of Jamaican rum.
Like Campari's other cocktailing classics, including Campari and Aperol, Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum is a must-have for passionate cocktailers. It is a great addition to tiki classics like the Mai Tai, Rum Runner, and Siren's Kiss. It's funk, punch, and legendary history can't be beat.
On the nose, this rum has a strong scent of banana and tropical fruits with hints of molasses. The palate is a complex blend of spices and fruit, with a bold and fiery finish that lingers long after the last sip.

It really is a shame it seems to have gone up in price, really loved this back when it was 20 dollars. Not going to ever find a rum like this with it's sweat almost rotten banna taste and slight woody nutty after taste. Recommend on Ice or in a Daiquiri, or as Bumbo or Grog.Best ForRated -1.0 on a scale of minus 2 to 2
