Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
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.
