Certificate

Every bottle of Wray & Nephew is made in Jamaica where the rum is a staple in almost every household and plays an important part in the celebration of births, marriages, graduations and other special occasions. It is even poured onto the foundations of new buildings to ward off evil spirits.

Made by Wray & Nephew, the oldest distiller in Jamaica which was founded by a Scotchman, Charles John Wray. He settled in Jamaica in the early 1800s and first blended rums at his tavern in Kingston, the capital of Jamaica, in 1825. He soon started bottling his blends to sell to other tavern keepers on the Island and in 1862 won three gold medals at the London International Exhibition. During this year he also formed a partnership with his nephew, Charles James Ward, and the business became John Wray & Nephew.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 06/07/2020

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Pungent, fruity estery aroma with rich molasses, pineapple, overripe banana, orange zest and desiccated coconut.

Taste:

Beyond the very assertive spirituous spice, pleasing flavours of caramel and nut garnished molasses emerge. The palate continues to grow and open with banana, pineapple and passion fruit.

Aftertaste:

The long fiery finish starts bitter and eventually fades through fruity notes.

Overall:

Although very potent, when used correctly Wrap & Nephew's complex bouquet and unique flavour characteristics make it an excellent base for cocktails and a must in punches. The little-changed yellow label with is black, green, and gold is a bar standout and cries for a rum punch to be made.
