Newfoundland Screech Rum Review
Update: Liquor Snob recently posted a retraction to this Screech Rum review. Yes, we know it's been four years. We didn't want to be too hasty.
Regrettably, a couple weeks ago, we covered Newfoundland Screech Rum.
Tonight...we reviewed it. A few minutes ago...two of us finished the entire bottle.
Screech Rum may be from Newfoundland, but it tastes like Toronto with a Detroit chaser. And somehow...against all advice...we finished the bottle. Because once the cap comes off, you realize it should never go back on. It gets dumped in one of two places: your mouth or the sink.
Things Screech Rum doesn't mix with: Orange Juice, Cranberry, High Life, Tomato Soup (no joke - we hoped it would kill the taste).
Things Screech Rum mixes with: Nausea, Exuberance, Anger, Melancholy, Regret and Nausea.
Even the Quaffer couldn't help. We used it for the shots so we wouldn't have to pause for the chaser, but the stuff is deadly and it burns like napalm going down.
Kill Us. For the love of all that is holy...kill us.
