Clear color. Aromas and flavors of grilled fruit wrapped in banana leaves, almond cookie and white cranberry, lemongrass, and spring rain on a meadow of flowers with a velvety, dry medium body and a long finish imparting notes of vanilla and plantain, lemongrass, and spearmint. The light and grassy notes with wisps of flowers and tropical fruits shine through the ABV of this overproof Rum.

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.
