What if Land and Sea opened a bar and didn’t tell anybody about it? Classic cocktails and tavern vibes with @juliatmck and @daiqattack_. Thursday through Sunday. Put it in the rotation.

Pools rule.

Rum bar? Fern bar?

This is Monymusk's Overproof White Rum. Monymusk rums come from the huge Clarendon distillery, which has an ownership structure that includes many partners including Diageo and, recently, Pierre Ferrand (makers of Plantation Rum). This rum shares Monymusk's flavors of banana and vanilla but lacks the hogo found in heavier pot still rums. It makes a fine addition to a cocktail. πŸ‡―πŸ‡²πŸ‡―πŸ‡²πŸ‡―πŸ‡²


This is DG White Overproof Rum. Desnoes and Geddes (DG) produce Red Stripe, a popular ginger beer, and some assorted malt beverages. This is their rum. It is garbage. It smells like rubbing alcohol and tastes like the worst rum you had in college. Amy says it tastes like rum extract. This is not merely uninteresting. It's aggressively bad. You can't win em all. πŸ‡―πŸ‡²

This is JBW Genuine White Overproof Estate Rum. It's also bottled by Wray & Nephew. The taste makes me think column distillate and the "estate" brand makes me wonder if it might be from Appleton's distillery. Unclear. It isn't offensive but neither is it interesting. If I was on an all-inclusive package at Sandals and ordered a Rum Punch on my meal plan I bet it would be made with this. Cheap and boring but gets the job done. πŸ‡―πŸ‡² πŸ‡―πŸ‡² πŸ‡―πŸ‡²

There are a number of overproof white rums available in Jamaica. It's the most popular style. I'm a fan of Wray & Nephew, the most popular brand (and one easily found in the U.S.) but I wanted to do some comparison tastings. This is Rum-Bar White Overproof from Worthy Park. The nose is more pungent with strong notes of rotten fruit. It's a little more oily and rich than the Wray and tastes great in a Rum & Ting. I like it. πŸ‡―πŸ‡² πŸ‡―πŸ‡² πŸ‡―πŸ‡² πŸ‡―πŸ‡² πŸ‡―πŸ‡²
