Recommendable to most
When it comes to overproof mixers, this is my first choice for most Tiki drinks, especially a Mai Tai or a Planter's Punch. It combines all the characteristics of what you expect of a dark rum: Smokiness, woodiness, smell and taste of dry fruits, some hidden sweetness and a complex finish - and of course some alcohol. Add some drops of water and you can even sip it. It's little brother of 40% ABV does not even get close to it, seems more like a cousin twice removed...Grab one while you can, there are supply difficulties again in Europe atm...
I liked this more than I thought I would based on the low price of only $27.99 (K&L Wines 2016 price).
A little strong at 151 proof to drink straight, I added some water. Smells and tastes of toffee, brown sugar, molasses, spice, cinnamon, and oak - all the right flavors of a good rum. Should make a great mixer.
Wonderful dark smoky flavor. First time i Tried it pure . .!. It reminded me oft some stachelbeer palinka from hungary... Realy a gold remembering. Emptied a bortle, now my store doesnt habe it anymore:( found out about 1\4 - 1\5 pussers 40% mixed Ingo goslings comes close in a mixed drink.
Deze overproof gekocht voor in de cocktails maar ook puur erg lekker. De burn valt eigenlijk wel mee en hij smaakt gewoon als een demerara rum.
This is a great overproof for mixed drinks offering a nice fortification with a pleasing taste and aroma.
I keep this on on my mixing shelf.
This is the quintessential floater in tiki drinks! no other rum can replace it, except maybe for some of Velier`s or Silver Seal`s heavier demeraras. It has a very punchy flavor, full bodied and strong, perfect to boost up any cocktail. It has 10g/L added sugar which I think it doesn`t need. Despite that I rate it high due to its versatility in Tiki cocktails as a float.
"Lovely treacly toffee, rich toffee apple and intense candy floss flavours."
