A mix of heavy bodied Wedderburn style rum and medium bodied Plummer, Smith and Cross is an excellent Jamaican rum that's making waves in the bar world. Bottled at 57%, navy strength, and intensely flavoured, this works well in cocktails but also has a depth that rewards those who like to sip their rum.

Wonderful stuff. Not fiery just warming. Complex and delicious with a finish that goes on for ages. My wife also likes it which is a nuisance. Highly recommended.

As was mentioned in an earlier review, rum is the perfection plan B for SMSW. Smith & Cross is a very balanced spirit. Fruity and sweet on the nose yet a more mature composed taste. In addition it's is very reasonably priced and in my opinion a better option than many of the bigger brands high end rums.

I've been looking for an alternative to whisky for a change and discovered this. Have tried a few aged rums but have found them too sweet and not enough ABV... this Smith & Cross Jamaican rum at 57% ABV pulls no punches but is well balanced with floral, orange and licorice notes... if you like your cask strength SMSW then give this 'Navy Strength' chappy a try... it's good stuff..

A tadd new-makish on the nose, but overall damn drinkable. Easy to forget it is 100 proof. Don't mix it -- if you do you're a girl.
