Clear color. Alliaceous aromas and flavors of freshly opened bag of Lay’s Sour Cream & Onion, polished leather, vanilla, and pickled mango with a velvety, dry medium body and a hot, engaging, medium-length finish that presents nuances of vanilla marzipan, jasmine, sesame oil fried water chestnuts, and masa on hot cast iron. An overproof white Rum that will shine in cocktail applications that highlight both its sweet and savory undertones.

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.
