Pungent, fruity estery aroma with rich molasses, pineapple, overripe banana, orange zest and desiccated coconut.
Firey palate. Beyond the heat pleasing flavours of caramel and nut garnished molasses emerge. The palate continues to grow and open with banana, tropical fruit and passion fruit.
The long fiery finish starts bitter and eventually fades through fruity notes. Although strong, when used correctly its complex bouquet and unique flavour characteristics make it an excellent base for cocktails and a must in punches.

St. Lucia Distillers’ overproof rum is a staunch favourite among the local population and its origins date back to 1932 when the Barnard Family established their Dennery Distillery and launched this overproof rum. A blend of 100% continuous still rums, Denros ranks as one of the world’s strongest.
The bottle of this high proof rum has a warning about handling what is a dangerously flammable liquid. It also has a metal strainer in its cap as a further safeguard against accidents, termed by Bacardi as a ‘flame arrester’.
As is so often the case in small distilleries, a proportion of Hampden Estate’s rum illicitly found its way into the local rum shop bars of Trelawny where it was sold as 'Hampden JB' from unmarked bottles kept under the counter.
This the 'second' overproof rum from Jamaica has something of a cult following on the island but compared to the likes of Wray & Nephew has a very small market share. Carley's J.B. Rum originated in Trelawny, Montego Bay, Jamaica in the mid-nineties.
Only 2,400 individually numbered bottles of this limited edition 151 overproof rum were produced for sale in the UK. It is distilled from fermented molasses using a four column process. The final product is a blend of rums up to 5 years old which have undergone charcoal filtration.
