Unfortunately the brown liquid in the new labelled Screech bottle is not the real deal. It even states on the back label it is not Jamaican rum. It doesn’t taste or even smell like real rum.
I have been trying since last October to find out what happened to our famous Screech. The bottling company does not know what they are putting in the Screech bottles. The manager of NLC outlets has no idea what they are putting in Screech labelled bottles. The CEO of NLC has no idea what they are putting in Screech labelled bottles.
I have contacted several people about this issue. No one seems to know or care that there is no more real NFLD Screech.
The provincial finance department is responsible for NLC. They don’t know either. Who changed what goes in Screech bottle is anybodies guess.
The Screech-ins are a bygone event to welcome visitors to our proud province.
