It's crystal clear, but don't let it deceive you.

They've done the research and they've scoured the globe for the most exceptional Rums. Not unlike the brand's namesake Sir Joseph Banks, the botanist who joined the great explorer James Cook on his first great voyage in the 18th century. Banks blended Rums are a labor of love and a tribute to the Spirit of discovery.

The 5 Island Blend takes the example of 1920s classic Rum then just goes bonkers with blending. Here are the numbers: 21 Rums from 6 distilleries, hailing from 5 different islands. Each liquid plays a vital part in Master Blender Arnaud de Trabuc's recipe that's been created with additional input from New York mixologist Jim Meehan. Trinidad is at its core, Jamaican pot-still Rums are there for aroma, Guyana brings earthy and fruity notes, Barbados adds some citrus, and Java sprinkles some beautiful spice over the lot. The Spirits have been aged between 3 and 12 years, then filtered to remove the color.

A little bit of etymology; nobody really knows where the word Rum comes from. Most popular suggestions are: Rum (the Romani word for potent), Rumbullion (an uproar), Saccharum (sugar in Latin), Rummer (a Dutch drinking glass).

Ratings & Reviews
JOSEPH
JOSEPH,
I guess I'm still not a white rum guy. Maybe it's too sophisticated for me. Distinctly different flavor spiral from the dark rums. I'm waiting for the neighbor to mix up some Mojitos with this.

Max,
This rum has a bold, unique personality and stands on its own well in a rum-forward cocktail like a daiquiri. It even has a great looking bottle that doesn't hog space in your cabinet. It's a bit more earthy than your standard issue white rum, so just be aware.
