Rum Bar White Overproof Rum
Rum-Bar // Jamaica
Jamaica’s Worthy Park is the newest Jamaican distillery, with a modern facility built circa 2005. In addition to exporting bulk rums, they also offer the Rum-Bar brand in the Jamaican market. The distillery is a 100% pot-still operation, and their source molasses comes from their own sugar mill less than a mile away. The Rum-Bar White Overproof is a blend of three unaged rums.
Silver RumAKA Blanco, Light, White. Rum that is usually aged (but not always) and carbon-filtered to remove any color. No specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for aging for most countries with a few exceptions.
"In the glass, the White Overproof is brilliantly clear, as you’d expect. The nose is quite strong from the moment you open the bottle, bringing forth the traditional Jamaican “funk” of overripe bananas. In time, crisp apple notes and just a hint of leather appear through the ethanol vapors. The palate is dry, bracing, and very fruit-forward, turning grassy toward the end. This rum, at 126 proof, is obviously not intended as a fireside sipper, but rather is a vehicle for adding a wallop of hogo and alcohol to tropical cocktails. In that regard, it does bang up job."
