The nose is fruity. Notes of molasses and spice. The palate is fruity and a little spirity. There are notes of banana and Demerara as well as spice and a little oak. The finish is long and spiced.
Easy drinking - when mixed!! The best!!
one of a kind taste to say the least. wouldn't recommend drinking it straight

I was introduced to this rum by my Jamaican Fiancé, a vodka drinker myself I mistakenly thought it would be similar or perhaps like the white rum Bacardi.....how wrong I was! My first taste was mixed with Pepsi and LOTS of ice....Loved it!!! It's my drink of choice (with Pepsi) when I'm in Jamaica and hitting the bars. Indoors we drink it with ice cold milk, very smooth and just the right kick for chilling together watching a movie...try it.

Oh dear God, how can anyone drink this straight?
I can only assume after repeated drinking the chemical burn has destroyed all tastbuds.

It is a good rum, DEF not the best, id put flor de cana over it anyday, but yea as someone above stated slightly medicinal and needs to be mixed with juices rather than sodas to get the right flavor out....

Give It a Try .....
I have been drinking this for many years with coke and two years ago, my fiance's aunt (who is Jamaican) says her favourite mixture is with orange juice. I looked at her as if she was crazy, but have to say, I am hooked. It has to be real OJ, not the cocktail. Also, another favourite of mine is mixing it with the mango/pineapple smoothie from McDOnald's, Try it! I told my friends and they love it! JW

Simply the best white rum on the market atm. The slight medicinal/burny raisin element to it may be off putting to some but i think it's wonderful, best drunk neat with respect with a glass of water on the side

This rum is one that needs to be savoured, yes it has a high ABV%, but it this allows this bottle to retain masses of flavour...any self respecting rum drinker worth his/her salt should have this in their collection.
My partner was given a bottle of W&N and she came home and gave it to me as she does not drink rum. Well what a drink so full of tropical fruits one of the best drinks I have ever had on it own or with Coca Cola just amazing.
WOW!! Unlike any other rum I have ever tasted. The bottle was brought back to me from Jamaica by a friend, knowing I am a rum enthusiast. I mixed my girlfriend and I a drink. Hers a single and mine a double. 1.5 Oz. rum - 10.5 Oz cola, and 3.0 Oz. rum - 9.0 Oz. respectively. Incredible full taste. very bright, with a hint of tropical fruits. Even the smell, when mixed, has this smell. went well with our steak and mashed with broccoli cheese basmati rice. Yes home made! To make it short... Get yourself a bottle, and either get gibbled, or enjoy it properly. It can be used both ways!
