I understand Rum Nation's Jamaican Pot Still rums are from Worthy Park which generally means a bit more balanced and less intense, but still with the Jamaican tropical fruit notes (and much more than say an Appleton). Would be interesting to do a side by side with the Smith & Cross.Henry, you were right, I thoroughly enjoyed the Smith & Cross. It was so uniquely characterful, and so full of funk, that I went back for more. It was around Black Friday and they had a 15% promotion. There were only 8 left so I bought a half dozen. I am already regretting not having bought them all.
Next up I might try the Rum Nation's Jamaican Pot Still Overproof Rum. Any idea whether this might have come from, or is it a blend?

If you enjoyed the funk and you can get hold of it I would also certainly recommend seeing if you can track down any of the Hamilton St Lucia Pot Still releases - should be easier for you in Canada than the UK and stands up well next to the Jamaican funk with a similar profile!
