Neat was too hot
Mixed with water and twist lime mellowed it out but did not leave much distinction
Interesting to try in a Tiki drink of regular proportion, not a fish bowel
There aren't many 151 proof rums that are actually delicious, but this one is. You could try it in this order: first, sip some straight up. Yes, it's really fiery, but the unmistakable Demerara smokiness and burnt butter flavors shine. Next, drop in an ice cube and wait a minute. Better, right? Hints of tobacco, oak and butterscotch. And finally, add it to your Tiki cocktails whenever the recipes call for overproof rum. Indispensable.
Can't get Lemonhart, but I can get this and its great.
Dark, smokey with hints of vanilla and molasses, great for floating or mixing when a dark rum is called for in tiki recipes. Also added points for being a great value buy!
I've heard a lot of people say this was the replacement for the classic Lemon Hart 151. Well, in it's absence, sure, this will work; it has good flavor, but not as rich, and a bit thin. Works nicely in cocktails. A good value.
I love all of Hamiltons productions. So much flavor in all. This is a great rum for tiki drinks needing demerara and overproof rums.
I had this side by side with the Lemon Hart 151, both straight, and both with a little water mixed in. Both are from Guyana. I liked the Lemon Hart more.
This was dryer that the Lemon Hart. Tastes and smells of molasses, tobacco, and oak. I prefer slightly sweeter rum.
Strong, but not unpleasant at all with just a bit of lime juice & sugar syrup.
Smoky, oily, nutty, somewhat floral. Really well done overproof.
