Default What are some good white over proof rums?

I would like to add some over proof white rums to my current bar and would like some input on some good ones.


Besides mixed drinks, what are some ways to drink this type of rum? Ti punch?

Default Wray & Nephew Overproof

Wray & nephew overproof rum. The world's no.1 selling overproofed (over 50% alc by vol). Just ask a Jamaican. Drink it with lime and sugar, honey & lime, a dash of fresh orange juice or just with ice and a slice.

Do you spice any of your rums? According to Ed higher alcohol content rums are a better base for spicing.

Jamaica

Lea’s Olde Jamaican White Overproof
Sangster’s Conquering Lion White Overproof

Cayman Islands
Blackbeard’s Overproof

US Virgin Islands
Cruzan 151 (white)
Old St. Croix Light (151)

Dominican Republic
Ron Bermudez 151

Grenada
Clarke’s Court Pure White Overproof
Clarke’s Court Kalypso White Overproof
Cannes Brulees White (140 Proof)
St. Vincent Sunset 169 Proof

I like White Jack from Grenada distilled and bottled by Westerhall Rum. I also like Jack Iron from Carriacou. It's actually aged a coupple years. been dinrking it in Rum Punch for years.

I'm a big fan of the Wray & Nephew Overproof as well. It tastes like bush rum I've had in Tobago and Grenada. The bottles I'm able to find are show 63% abv but I'm sure they make a 75.5% version as well.

Probably you can try our El Dorado Superior High Strength Rum which is 75.5% alcohol v/v.

I use the JW&N overproof which i really like, its a staple in my homebar, it has a very special taste..goes with everything our Rum Ambassador mentioned and TING!

I havenґt yet tried El Dorados Superior High Strength Rum, but i believe it must be good.
