I'm mostly a whisky drinker (have had some great drams from the Whisky Exchange!) but a drop of rum makes a very nice change occasionally, and this one is particularly rich and flavoursome - lovely!

I've had the privilege of being a 'rum bos'un' in the navy, and in my opinion Wood's 100° was practically indiscernible from the real thing.

Must say, the finest I have ever tasted. Incredible flavour, and deeply satisfying.
One of the few things, today, that is value for money. Reminds me of assembling for grog!

Woods 100 has to be the nearest thing to an RN tot - Since leaving the RN as a Chief in 1971 this is the only rum I can drink and be instantly taken back in time to 'Up Spirits - Hands of messes for Rum'.

Powerful stuff. Strong demerara Navy style rum. Pot stilled for that strong flavour and at 57% will blow your socks off. It's not refined and you won't be "noticing hint's wet dog and cigar wrappers" or anything but it's a solid example of the style and damned tasty.

Had my one and only tot for the Silver Jubilee and Woods 100 is the only one I ever drank after that always neat of course.
- Rowdy Yates.Ex AB RN, 2nd Oct '13
One of the best mass produced rums, intense blackcurrenty flavour, the demerara shines through and despite the high alcohol still slips down lovely with a lingering pleasant aftertaste.
I don't usually like ice with my rum but a single cube will ease the somewhat bitter edge off.
I wouldn't waste a rum of this quality in cocktails or as a mixer, it deserves to be sipped neat.
If Pussers is not on the menu this will do nicely.

STILL HERE DRINKING MY WOODS STILL THE BEST
- FRANCES 45, 15th Nov '11
After sixteen years sevice with the navy i tink i know what is the best rum, but this one (woods 100) comes a very close second, pussers more refined but woods has a deep depth of flavour. ex navy

Wow amazing stuff straight up. Nice dash of spring water brings out some stunning flavours..
- James, Oxford, 25th Jun '11
I'm not a rum drinker, so cannot compare, but I found this to be very delicious with a few drops of water.

Being ex RN,it is by far the nearest you can get to navy rum.I just make up my tot close my eyes and it's just like being back onboard ship,brining back many happy memories

I left the royal navy when they stopped the tot. Woods 100 is as near as you can get to it. I still have my Woods tot every day.

by far the best of all the available rum in the uk.django.

I am A lady pensioner and it far the best rum Ihave tasted. but I do prefer it neat.Others rums seem inferior.My dad got me drinking it,maybe its because he was in the navy. posted by Frances

I am partial to the occasional drop of Woods but it's definately too strong for many! Makes Captain Morgans and Lambs taste thin and watery. A very strong molasses flavour. Try English Harbour as an alternative which is a little more refined as is pusser though it doesn't have the flavour of woods.

Having 11 Royal Navy years, witnessed the last day of the Rum Issue, this is the only one I find that is acceptable - believe me I have tried quite a few!
- Admiral, 19th Oct '09
Fantastic rum and great value. Try it in a planters punch.....will blow your socks off!
- Iain, 14th Oct '08
awesome with old jamacan rum compliments the taste perfectly
- Shep, 28th May '08
Woods 100 is remarkably tasty considering it's strength. Comparable with Capt Morgan in flavour and colour but with a kick. Very palatable with lots of ice, coke and a twist of fresh lime.
