This world has become so obsessed with hand cleaner during this pandemic that it rarely can be found anymore. It is made up of mostly alcohol. Since very few have thought of throat cleaner, leave it to me to use overproof rum to burn those germs out. For a much more detailed explanation, please refer to the addendum on my review for Cruzan Hurricane Proof. Stay safe and resist the urge to dip into your rum collection during these very trying times.

Funny enough, over here in the UK the government initially said it was good to drink tea (or any warm beverage I guess) every 15 min, as it washes any virus to your stomach and then the heat kills it :)

Andy:

Unfortunately, the leader of the government over here in the USA is a pathological liar who is off his rocker. No point in listening to him. Just obtain the facts on the virus from scientific sources. The virus enters the system via the nostrils and throat. When going out, if it winds up on the hands, we were warned to not rub our eyes. I simply wash my hands with strong dish washing liquid after every time I go out. I also sniff the vapors of the throat cleaner (can't call it aroma at overproof) and then take two sips straight to clear the throat. I woke up on two mornings with mild symptoms and this throat cleaner really worked!

It’s time to start the month of overproof undiluted rum!
I disinfect Foursquare 2014 (59%ABV), next Bacardi 151

I now have three overproof rums in my collection, so I no longer have to hoard them as I did with that last bottle of Cruzan Hurricane Proof that lasted for four months. In increasing ABV%, they are: Smith & Cross, Plantation OFTD, and Don Q 151. All three taste better than that bottle of Cruzan. If I could find Hamilton 151, I would gladly add that one to my collection.

Not sure why we had to inject politics into a discussion about rum but so be it.

I only responded to Andy's comment because over in the UK, they can at least believe what their government is telling them. Not so over here! I am not stating politics. I am stating FACTS!!!! PENCE 2020!!!

Not stating politics, only facts? Riiiiight. Whatever. Orange man bad, orange man bad.

The virus CAN enter through mucous membranes of the eyes. Why do you think healthcare workers are using goggles and face shields? Matter of fact, here's a link from a story today. May want to take a gander: https://www.zmescience.com/science/eyes-important-rute-of-infection-14134/

Re: your 'Scientific sources'?? I've yet to see a peer reviewed study that links whiffing ethanol vapors to killing Covid. That's laughable dude. You're better off drinking fish tank cleaner once you contract it. SMH.

Pence will have his chance in 2024.... after Trump's 2nd term.

But yeah.... rum. Habitation Velier Foursquare 2013.

Yeah, Habitation Velier Foursquare 2013, but not for vaporise, for solid inside cleaning.
In my opinion Ethanol dry out the skin, also will dry out your mucous membranes and the virus gets easier into your body.

At %63 Wray and Nephew Overproof White would be a very funky and delicious way to ensure your throat is Covid-19 free. Smith and Cross (57%) might also get the job done.

I already have Smith & Cross and consider it as a staple in one's rum cabinet. I tried Wray & Nephew Overproof one time and gave it two stars. I just could not tolerate it except to make Jasper's Punch.
