If you’re a fan of bold, complex flavors and enjoy a drink with a bit of a kick, then overproof rum might be just the thing for you. These rums are not for the faint of heart, but for those who appreciate a spirit with a bit of edge. Overproof rums are often associated with the Caribbean, where they have a long history of use in traditional cocktails like the Mai Tai and the Zombie. However, many other countries produce their own versions of overproof rum, each with their own unique flavor profile and character. So, if you’re looking to explore the world of rum and try something a little different, overproof rum might just be the perfect place to start.

Please drink responsibly, be fully accountable with your alcohol consumption, and show others respect.
