I got slightly more juice than that but I think it needed it otherwise it may have been too sweet. Totally agree that the Coruba was lovely, but I think the W&N nudged ahead flavourwise.

Okay, I'm convinced. I put the Secret Mix together a few minutes ago and tossed it in the fridge. Will probably be tomorrow evening before I get into it.

Which book is this in?

I have the one from 2004. Is it in there, or only in the 2009 Spiral-bound version?

http://www.amazon.com/Vintage-Cocktails-Spirits-Ted-Haigh/dp/1840924748/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1340666855&sr=8-2&keywords=Vintage+Spirits+and+Forgotten+Cocktails

My version is the 2009 spiral-bound. That's where I found it.

OK, thanks. It is probably one of the 20 new recipes in the spiral-bound version.

Definitely in the spiral version of the Haigh book. I also recall reading that the Jaspers Jamaican will covered in depth in the upcoming Beachbum Berry book

I checked Amazon and looked through the sample book pages, but didn't see it. Where did you see it?

Here's one. Just substitute Wray and Nephew for Coruba.

This is the Wray & Nephew Overproof called for in Jasper's Rum Punch, right?

Incidentally, it's the only W&N product in our market. I had this idea that it probably tasted like an overproof Bacardi Superior, at least that's the idea I've had in my head, so I've never tried it. If the consensus is that not only is this good stuff but that Jasper's Rum Punch is indeed awesome, I'll definitely give it a try! But not if tastes like overproof Bacardi Superior...

That's the Wray and Nephew. It reminds me of agricole. I'm not a fan of it but in Jasper's drink it is tranformed into a god.

the Wray & Nephew overproof definitely tastes nothing like bacardi.

tastes more like puregrain mixed with karo syrup...

I just had the opportunity to try out the "secret mix" with both Coruba and the Wray and Nephew Overproof. Both rums worked great; even the overproof went down quite easily, though it really snuck up on me in the buzz dept (I'm sure it didn't help that it was 100 degrees out here in Chicago), it really packs a punch.
