Wood's is made from the finest sugar cane and distilled in Guyana, South America. Bottled at 57% abv, it is one of the highest percentage volume dark rums out there right now, at least at this price.
Its smooth enough to enjoy neat, but also a killer choice for cocktails.
Nose: Toffee, cinnamon, cloves and pepper spice on the nose with thick caramel notes.
Palate: Muscovado sugar, soft toffee and just a hint of the spice detected on the nose. This is very smooth, belying its hefty abv.
Finish: Surprisingly short but thick and syrupy toffee notes abound.
Overall: A rich, dark rum with a high abv that retains its smoothness. Would work well in a dark and stormy, despite the fact Wood's is distilled in Guyana, and not Bermuda.

Definitely the best rum in the world,, don't like drinking any of the others, just a shame about the new label, makes it look like a Chinese rip off. I think the makers should go back to the old label and bottle shape for that matter.

Been drinking "Wood's" a long time now.New bottle and design of label has taken it down a few notches! Bottle is not easy to hold,cork and plastic wrap is hard work for us oldies,label is like a cheap whiskey as opposed to the original label which looked as though some design and thought had gone in to it! Two local pubs have to decant the rum in to old bottles because they do not have room on their optics. Give us back the old bottles or I am giving up buying the stuff after 56 years. I'll start drinking beer and whiskey again. Tony Stanyer.

Love the stuff, nearest thing I have tasted to proper pussers rum. Remember when we had a memorial burying of a casket of pussers rum on the last day of issue. Very ceremonial. Marked with headstone etc. Next morning it had been dug up and never seen again. Don't blame the culprits - what a waste of good rum.

I'm a big whisky drinker and decided to pick this up a couple of weeks ago, I had 3 big glasses and lost the ability to stand. It's muscavado sugar tasting goodness is delicious and deadly if you hit it too hard :)

While I think Woods Rum is the best rum in the World, I must voice my disappointment at the new label. I began drinking Woods while serving in the Royal Navy in the 60/70s, and the Sailor on the label always made the bottle stand out on a crowded shelf. Now living in Australia, I treat every bottle of Woods like liquid gold, but would like to see the return of the old label.

Been drinking "Wood's" since 1962,just getting the taste! Tried many but no other comes near.The Best!!

Fine..... You have to handle this drink with care.... 57% . Demerara rum is the best, this reminds me of Old Sam... Its another great black rum.

my dad is a woods rum lover he gets us all to buy woods rum for Christmas birthdays anniversaries & fathers day so he has his years supply he's been drinking it for as long as I remember I am in my fifties so woods must be a brilliant rum as my dad is so fussy

Stunning! Thick and rich Guyanese Rum. As far as quality to price only Pusser's Gunpowder proof is better.

The one. The only. Tried others, one I even gave away.

I have always been a fan of dark NR, ever since my father who was in the navy , gave me a small tipple some 30 years ago and ever since I truly believe this is the best navy rum . it is toffee and caramel flavoured ,and is thicker than its lower class , darks ie lambs, & Morgan. If you find a bottle for £26 your very lucky, as I have paid £30.99 before and did not feel robbed , because it is worth it . No WONDER We HAVE A GREAT NAVY .

Great rum,I had my first 'tot' in 1962 and still enjoy it today.
6th May 2015
I think this rum is bloody grand - tremendous value for a social club drink.

How rum should be
12th November 2014
Classy and old fashioned, powerful and full of flavor. Always good to have it handy for cocktails or for the right occasion.
28th October 2014
I love this rum, I could smell it all day long let alone drink it. Other rums seem watery and lifeless compaired to Wood's 100.
13th September 2014
I am usually a whisky drinker but I have always wanted to try a 'proper' rum in the RN tradition. The first glass blew me away and I am hooked to this glorious drink. Treat with respect and enjoy, I know I will.
21st June 2014
A true submariners tot.
4th June 2014
A proper tot. That caramel chocolate spice horny flavour with a deep alcohol hit (flavour) is awesome. Take it easy. Drink it on it's own slowly. Bathe in the afterglow. A ferkin stonker of a rum. One of the very best.
4th May 2014
Knocks spots off lesser rums, fiery but smooth. High ABV so be very careful and don't rush unless you want to fall over/go blind/sh*t yourself.

I woke up this morning covered in dry leaves and my clothes contained traces of the DNA of five different animals. I don't know how I ended up here but I do know why. Woods Rum. Smooth, drinkable and deadly.
12th September 2013
A truly fantastic rum, very dark, great flavours.. however not one to have more than two unless you dont plan to leave your chair all evening ;)My favourite rum bar none
28th July 2013
best rum on a cold night or any timecome to that
20th June 2013
A fine dark rum, very drinkable.
14th June 2013
It tastes damn good. The first shot is a little harsh but after it's pure nectar
5th June 2013
This shot has made me delirious,unstable and so physically ill i thought i had salmonella. (for the third time). Anyone that claims they can get hints of toffee, cinnamon, cloves or pepper spice is lying.
