Lost Spirits Navy 55 rum, a double pot-distilled, Grade A molasses-based rum aged for less than one week in a Targeted Hyper-Esterification Aging (THEA) reactor designed to reproduce the effects of traditional aging. Bottled at 122 proof. No added sugar, flavors, or colors. No chill filtering.via American Rum Report
See my notes on Lost Spirits Navy Style 61%. Strong notes of creamy vanilla, buttered toast, and charred wood. This one is lighter than the 61%, and slightly dryer than the 68%.
This rum is full-flavored but feels thin in the mouth. More "high notes" than 61 or 68. Spicier than 68. Yeah, sharp bite, with a bit too much of a flavor explosion to go with it.
With time & oxidation, this is actually quite lovely and balanced.

It's definitely got the "Lost Spirits" vibe, but to me this is layered and fruity. No longer available, but I do recommend trying the Navy Style 61, which is a departure from this.
A little eerie tasting. It's got aged notes but it feels like something is missing. Still, nice spice full on where mouth.
