Overproof rum is a strong spirit. Most rums sold in the United States are bottled at 80 to 100 proof, or 40 to 50% alcohol by volume. Some exceptions are rums bottled at 125 to 160 proof or more. They’re also used in cooking recipes that call for rum to be ignited in flame (flambé) or drinks that blend a very strong rum into their recipe.

Aromas of musty gym socks, a hint of salt, charcoal and leather, walnut shell, dried prune and apricot, dark raisin, figs, dates, root cellar, rancio, pistachio, soft rubber. The palate starts honeyed, leads into dark dried fruit and leather, nuts and burnt wood, cacao. The super-long complex, balanced finish offers echoes of charred wood and prune.
