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.

- RumXP Award Winner. Unique in the world of rum, this 160 proof spirit from Austria packs a punch along with bold aromas of big buttery pound cake, mixed fruit preserves, more butter, jelly doughnut, more butter, black currant and black cherry. A careful sip reveals initial cotton candy and butterscotch retreating quickly to a hot mixed fruit butter cake fading in the warm finish suggesting an aftertaste of juicy fruit chewing gum.
