Plantation introduced their overproof last year and it took many of us by surprise because you could actually sip this rum with a cube of ice or two. There are a few others that have been around for a while like Smith and Cross and the Scarlet Ibis that also have shown some quality in flavor and smoothness in an overproof rum.
If you have the desire to trace back into the "Tiki" era, then one of these wonderful overproofs will be an important part of your mixology. This was a fun era and one that I also enjoy exploring every now and again. Join me in the fun, who knows, we might even run a rum lab that explores these fabulous rums. ;o)
