See my notes on Lost Spirits Navy Style 61%. Strong notes of creamy vanilla, buttered toast, and charred wood. This one is lighter than the 61%, and slightly dryer than the 68%.
This rum is full-flavored but feels thin in the mouth. More "high notes" than 61 or 68. Spicier than 68. Yeah, sharp bite, with a bit too much of a flavor explosion to go with it.
With time & oxidation, this is actually quite lovely and balanced.
