At 136 proof you'd expect third degree throat-burn and not much else...but this stuff is packed with flavor and follow-through. I drink it straight up...just an ounce or two...and find it immensely enjoyable. Yay Navy!

Even when I KNEW the burn was coming it still caught me off guard.

There are strong portents of port/sherry on the nose. Considering this is aged in American Oak treated with Sherry this shouldn't be a surprise. If you hadn't poured it yourself you'd swear you were about to drink one of them and not rum though. It's that strong. Sweet and smoky on the tongue there's just enough burn left to trip you up into coughing if you breathe too soon after the swallow. Exhaling first helps, but exacerbates the burn a little and trips you a little into that "bacon" that Law mentioned in his review. The addition of a few drops of water tames it just a tad. I can easily see this being one of those rare treats to have a small tot of when lighting up a really good, strong cigar. Not something for everyday consumption though. The 68% alcohol content will see to that.

Very impressed with the people, the process and the rum. Very interesting techniques and chemistry 'hacks' showing a terrific understanding of the processes and chemical reactions involved. The Rum is full of depth and flavour and is a great ingredient

Which is exactly what I was expecting! Lots of charred wood along with coffee, olive brine and caramel on the nose. If you're being brave and sipping this straight, take small sips. It has this curious soft-burning sensation through your mouth with more char flavors along with custard and plum. I personally recommend watering it down a tad, or mixing in cocktails. Finish leaves more char character. A nice, strong dark for the cabinet!

See my notes on Lost Spirits Navy Style 61%. Strong notes of creamy vanilla, buttered toast, and charred wood. This one is stronger than the 61%, and slightly sweeter than the 55%.

. . . but honestly, this is just too strong for me. I tried it straight and then tried it cut with water and some lime juice and still too strong. I think this is something you mix with a strong mixer like Cola and then maybe only after you've had a few drinks of other rums.

Wow, off day hook. Man's rum right here so liberals need not try this stuff. First off you can tell from the start that this stuff has not been tampered with. Extremely smokey rum and in honesty the only smoky rum i have ever partaken. My favorite way to drink this rum is as topper with a high end rum and coke, using it as an accent, Mix it with coke and call it a smoke and coke..

Bought a bottle of this based on a number of glowing reviews. That and the unique process used to create it really intrigued me.

Sad to say it's not very good at all.

Strong and smokey. This tastes like burnt bacon. Super smokey. I don't know what else to say, that flavour dominates and everything else fades into the background. Doesn't even taste like rum.

Not worth it at half the price.
