Review:

Brilliantly balanced and composed, this is a rum-forward boozy digestive with herbal complexity and enlivening ginger to contemplate a great meal and a good yarn relayed by a fellow diner.

History:

Adapted from a 2020 recipe by Jason E. Clapham, Oxford, England, which specifies 60ml Plantation Xaymaca Jamaican rum, 22.5ml Amaro Montenegro and 7.5ml King's Ginger.

Jason explains, "Hunter's Verdict, where big Jamaican flavours are melded with King's Ginger and Amaro Montenegro (incidentally, the name refers to Dr John Hunter, who declared Jamaica rum safe to drink in 1788 – the lead pipes were to blame! - and henceforth Jamaican rum would feature prominently in Navy rations)."
