Brown color. Meaty, candied aromas and flavors of boozy, teriyaki, Hoisin, dark chocolate, leather, and and burnt orange with a medium body and a medium finish with notes of chinese pork bbq, coffee grounds, burning chocolate, and burnt orange. There’s certainly some cocktail applications for this and excited to see what other bartenders come up with; it’s good, it’s just a lot.

Overproof Rum also known as Navy Proof Rum, is Rum in any style that is over 40% ABV (or 80 Proof) and is traditionally robustly flavored. Favored by British sailors from the early 1700s until the mid-seventies, it was often mixed with water to form a ‘grog’ to be drunk by sailors out at sea.
