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.

Owney's Original USA-New York City Rum
- Named for prohibition rum runner Owen(y) Madden, this craft white rum made by Bridget Firtle at Noble Experiment in Brooklyn, remains true to the cane with vegetal aromas of grass and a light touch of lemon-pepper. The palate begins with lemongrass, leading to a slightly bitter bright white pepper that balances the natural sweetness before a bit of mid-palate heat. Persistent warmth and pepper on the clean finish. Respectfully wild but not hot. Makes a fine dry daiquiri.
