Overproof aged rum

151 proof, Lemon Hart 151, Hamilton 151

Overproof aged rum is typically Demerara rum, although other types do exist. Demerara rum has a smoky, complex flavor owing to the molasses-rich sugar it’s made from. Lemon Hart 151, a Guyanese Demerara rum, was long held as the gold standard – but lately the recipe has changed, and it’s become difficult to find in many regions. We’ve found Hamilton 151 to be an agreeable replacement.

Overproof aged rums are usually 151-proof or greater and, just like regular overproof rums, are quite flammable.
