Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
This stuff is off the hook. 126 proof and has the burn of a blow torch to prove it. The closest thing i can compare the burn to is the horse radish burn you get when you eat to much. Once you taste this rum you will never have a problem identifying it again. When the fire eventually goes out it is really good and tasty, but to hasten the process, drop in a rock and let er melt and it smooths out to a quite ideal texture and delightful drink. Bought one of these to go in my rum collection just to throw a rock in the pond when doing some tasting with my friends.
Wow... just wow!!! All I can say is THANK YOU Mr Hamilton! That being said, I'm going back tomorrow to buy what was left on the shelf. $49 well spent!
This rum is the epitome of flavor and funk yet balanced with oak, vanilla, caramel, and a touch of thick sweetness to balance the aggressive funk. Surprisingly smooth for 64%. This rum is amazing.
This was the first higher-end Hamilton I've sampled. The one I tried was about 46% abv, so not the "cask strength" version. Nevertheless, it was simply bursting with well-rounded pot-still goodness. There was also strong oak and subtle smoke. Highly recommended! (Also tried it in a Daiquiri—not as highly recommended. Needs to be tamed in a more nuanced cocktail, else enjoyed as the good Minister has given it to us.)
