Smith & Cross Traditional Jamaica Rum Plummer & Wedderburn Pure Pot Still (750ml)
A top pick for tiki and tropical drinks, this practically begs for lime juice. Scented with warm honey notes, the palate shows lots of brown sugar and spice, plus an enticingly untamed, funky finish (the fabled 'hogo'). Since it’s 'Navy Strength,' you might not want to sip it straight up—the producer wisely recommends exploring the profile first in a daiquiri—though it’s smooth and interesting enough if you want to try.
The original Jamaica rum is back. It's been 80 years and true Jamaica pot still rum has lived only in the imagination of cocktail historians and spirits nerds like myself. Now the real stuff is back, thanks to the influence of mixology's preeminent mind David Wondrich. 100% pot-stilled, this navy-strength rum has all of the oily aromatics of a top-class single malt. This product will bring the rum cocktail back from the dead or put hair on your chest. Either way, they didn't make too much of this stuff, so don't wait.
