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.

Lost Spirits Navy Style Rum
- RumXP Award Winner. This dark and robust 136 proof British Navy style expression with deep mahogany color offers aromas of dark ripe fruit with port and chocolate notes up front, followed by burnt marshmallow, over-ripe banana and raspberry, a sweet earthiness over treacle, baking spice and fresh oak. On the palate, this strapping spirit expands boldly with robust complexity while remaining amazing smooth, offering a very long luxurious experience reminiscent of a traditional Jamaican or Guyanese produced British Navy rum. A small sip delivers big mouth feel, delivering dark candied fruit, creme brûlée and a balsamic note before a big change on the mid-palate brings tobacco and dry cedar cigar box over fresh oak and vanilla with a suggestion of Bananas Foster dessert before fading very slowly to a rich, warm finish with echoes of toasted almonds.
