Tasty, but not quite great
At the Miami Rum Festival, they said they start with this, then dilute down the proof for the other versions. I believe it with how good this tastes. You may look at this and say, "For crying out loud! It's not dark enough to be called dark rum." But when you taste it, you'll believe too (and believe anything you hear...it's Truth Serum...is this what sodium pentothal tastes like?)
At 146 proof you'd expect to feel an unpleasant burn, but this rum is smooth and tasty. Overtones of chocolate and bananas provide a delightful sweetness. It's a versatile player...straight up, or with a few drops of water or maybe even an ice cube, and certainly an indispensable addition to your Tiki cocktails. Some acetone in the aftertaste. It's from Trinidad...
the 151 % is very smooth with very similar notes to other plantation rums. i have drank this from the bottle with very little burn on the throat. very dangerous. great for mixing!
Its an overproof with its share of ethanol smell initially. Though it opens up to beautiful toasted flavors, citric zests, wood skin. A killer!
Of course not a sipper, but the best overproof mixer I know. No filler will destroy its taste. Unfortunately this bottle will leave the market soon and be replaced by the Plantation O.F.T.D., because the producer is running out of trinidadian Rum.
I opened the taste of this rum with a little water , I thought that a full grade rum like this could unleash many more aromatic scents ! Fruity and burnt wood notes.
