With a nose of crème brûlée, vanilla and coconut that contrast background shades of grassy vegetation. This 114 proof rum does a great job of staying easy sipping while packing a distinctive flavor. On the palate you get a deep caramel and honey body, followed up by complex dark molasses notes of baking spice, butter and lightly roasted coffee with lingering hints of tropical fruit and pepper spice.
The term “Navy Strength” comes from the days when sailors underway were given two “tots” of rum per day. In order to assure the sailors that they were not being gipped out of alcohol the rum was proofed at 114 or above, the strength at which gunpowder would still ignite when soaked with spirit. Proving the quartermaster was above board with their rum ration.
Even at 57% ABV this rum can be subtle & delicious in a classic daiquiri (2 oz Barrelflag, ¾ oz Lime, ½ oz Cane Syrup) or take you to new levels in more “tiki” oriented drinks: Zombie, Navy Grog (obviously), or Mai Tai. It really shines in a Ti’ Punch or a straight-forward Mojito.
