Navy Strength Rum

Navy Strength Rum


Tasting Notes

The Specifics

Rated 95 points by Tasting Panel

Our Navy Strength Rum is made from organic blackstrap molasses in true rum fashion. Blackstrap molasses is the final byproduct of sugar refining and has the most intense molasses flavor. Our distillation produced a full-flavored rum that we aged in charred, new American oak barrels to impart hints of vanilla, coffee, and cinnamon. After mellowing a few more months in used wine casks our rum was bottled at 114 proof.

Butterscotch, crème brulee, roasted pineapple, coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, toasted almonds with nose of Honeysuckle, bread pudding, and dulce de leche

Gun powder mixed with navy strength rum will still light. Rum was brought on board British ships in the eighteenth century to reward the sailors. The higher proof rum was needed so it could be stored with the explosives maintaining combat effectiveness if there was a spill. This turns out to be 57% alcohol, a fine proof. It would not do to fight Blackbeard or the French navy if your powder could not do the job.
