Tasty, but not quite great
This rum has a wonderful molasses and toffee flavor which makes it indispensable for many Tiki cocktails. It was made to be mixed, so if you're drinking it neat and wondering why your throat has melted you need to remember that it's 75% alcohol! It is not made to be sipped neat.
This is one of my favorite overproofs, right near the top behind Hamilton 151, the best in my opinion, and light years ahead of Bacardi. I even prefer it to some of the Lost Spirits overproofs.
Found Cruzan on a Frontier flight, & was impressed with this USVI rum!! The overproof is great as a floater on top of a rum punch.
This rum is deceptive. My wife and i had a drink and were like "this isnt so bad" so we had another drink. Now we are accidently hammered and as intelligent as dogs
Try this if you like an overproof spirit with some character (besides just alcohol), it has plenty of toffee and caramel flavors that add complexity to any rum-based mixed drink! Use in those classic iced slushy rum drinks without watered-down flavor.
There's no doubt it's got a hell of a bite but it's better than you would ever expect for a rum this strong. It's my go-to to take with me backpacking since I'm looking for bang for the buck to keep my pack weight down.
