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.

Opthimus 25 Oporto Barrels
- RumXP Award Winner. From Portugal, 25 year solera. Bottle 73 at 43 percent abv abv. Aromas of ripe butter on beautiful charred wood lead to tart berry, cinnamon baking spices, honey, black currant, black raspberry, bitter vanilla and smoke. The super-sweet entry dries out quickly by mid-palate, when the unique characteristics of the port barrel evolve -- black currant, black raspberry, blackberry -- dominates and persists in the finish.
