Default Jamaican Rums

The in-laws are heading to Jamaica this week on vacation....

Aside from the Appleton line-up, with which I am familiar, what are some other Jamaican Rums that are worth requesting?

I am interested to try the Sangsters rum creams, maybe coconut or the blue mtn coffee - any insights?

From what I can tell Worthy park does not bottle anything under their own label, but rather sells to blenders? How about Long Pond distillery? What is worth looking for when they are there? Thanks!

Default Long Pond Distillery

Has anybody tried anything from the Long Pond distillery?

How about Monymusk?

We've got a bottle of 21 Year old Silver Seal rum from the Long Pond Distillery. Long Pond supply bulk rums to naval rum blenders - Pussers in particular - and the nose is so distinctly naval.

Long Pond don't produce their own brand of rum as far as I understand. Does anyone know any different?

We've got nearly 2 weeks in Jamaica with Appleton in June so I'm going to try to get out there. It's going to be an amazing trip - we're doing cocktail sessions with the media, interviews on breakfast TV, several bartender training courses, a day in the lab with David Morrison and hosting the final of the Appleton Bartending Challenge. I'll post some more detail once it's finalised.

I can't wait

Just from the index on the left, you get this, which looks to me like they do produce some of their own bottlings, but I've never seen them or heard of them?

Pusser's is a private label bottled in Trinidad and to my knowledge contains no Jamaican rum. The bulk of the heavy rums called for in the Royal Navy blend came from Guyana.

I've only seen a few bottles of Long Pond rum bottles by third parties.

Worthy Park have an Overproofed rum (130% proof) if you're interested. It's worth adding to the collection because I feel they will fail to dent the Wray & Nephew Overproof market, with their imitation. The Rum is called RUMBAR. Other rums to add to your collection are the Edwin Charley's Proprietor Collection. Beautifully packaged in Venetian glass bottles. They come in a set of 4 are only sold at the airports.

Curious... do you have any more info on this RUMBAR?
