Thanks so much for submitting a report. It has been emailed to the Rum Captain and will be actioned shortly.
I finally got my hands on a bottle of this overproof rum. Not quite 151 proof, but bottled at 137 proof, the same amount of knots that qualifies a hurricane to become a very destructive Category 5. Some of the profits from the sale of this rum will go to help rebuild communities in the USVI and elsewhere in the USA that have been destroyed by major hurricanes.
Enough for the good cause, so how does it taste? Drinking neat is not recommended at all. However, adding 2-3 ice cubes to the snifter mellows out the burn while bringing out the island flavors. Not quite as good as their Single Barrel, but awfully close. The best way to test any overproof is to water it down and see if the flavor holds up. This one does very well.
How to use it? It is light amber in color, so it will not serve well as a dark Tiki topper. I would suggest one to use their imagination to make a great rum punch. Because of the good flavor hiding under the burn, it probably could not ruin any drink.
