I use the Woods as a float mostly, it certainly gives the drink a kick when you get down to the last few drops. I'd recommend having a bottle on hand.
I'm at about 30 rums but as with most people I seem to drink and replace in equal amounts.

Correct. Got it for the bottle on vacation. Now I am tempted to open it. A 20 YO Rum intrigues me.

Down to these last few... Cubans from Tokyo.

Appleton Extra 12yr
Bacardi Select
Hana Bay Gold
Havana Club 3yr
Havana Club Cuban Barrel Proof
Lemonhart 40%
Matusalem Gran Reserva 15yr
Rhum Tahitian Brun
St Elmo
Trader Vics Dark

Havana Club 3 is my fav white rum, AppletonX & Matusalem15 are my fav drinking rums, the Barrel Proof is best sipping rum, Trader Vics Dark I like much better than Myers', the Tahitian is pretty unique (fruitcake-like), St. Elmo is only for cooking rum cakes, Bacardi Select is the worst--I'll probably have this bottle forever, Hana Bay reminds me of Hawaii and the Lemonhart is my new everyday rum.

oh you most surely should try it.
I too bought it originally for the Bottle,
and I needed a dark rum.

I found/read on the tag that is made the Mexican way of making rum.
not the Cuban way. I don't know the difference.
but I like it.
its dark, and tastes great.
but its not overly sweet or molasasy , kinda dry for a dark.
IMO.

drink up.

Wood's is fantastic... ask any Royal Navy veteran what they drink and that is probably the brand they come up with.

I've never seen it in the States. I used to get mine at the duty free whenever I stopped over at London Heathrow. But lately they have not stocked it there.

Sounds a lot like Lemon Hart, both British Navy Demeraras, but Woods is strong at 57%. Any taste comparisons?

It looks and tastes darker, more molasses-like. I like sipping it with one cube of ice, to take the edge off. None of that sissy sweet or dry stuff. Rummy tasting rum. Yum.

But Lemon Hart is equally good, just a little different, more "golden". I would be hard pressed to favor one for the other. I would drink both.

A bit of both really...

It's the only Export strength Rum that is sold as a common 'main-line' spirit in England.

As said, it's definately the choice of Old Sailors...

An 'Old School' tipple would be equal measures of Woods and Peppermint Cordial, known as a Rum and Pep.

Kinda strayed of into the Wood's. Well I started this thread and have not yet put my own selection on until now. It was allot better awhile ago but as work slowed down the rum went down as well. Still some good in there and some not so good but it works.

I am definitely an underachiever when it comes to drinking; my meager supply is a bottle of Cruzan 2 yo, half a bottle of Kraken, and a bottle of Bacardi 151 that I bought to light my tiki torch mug. Perhaps I can serve as a bad example
