I`m giving this rum 5 stars because for such a potent rum it has alot of flavor going for it. This rum would make a most potent and flavorful rum cake, i would also think it would make eggnog scream! As with any alcohol enjoy it, but don`t abuse it, otherwise it will abuse you later on. If you drink this straight up like myself from time to time it is kind of enjoyable drinking this rum, as if you burp you can taste the molasses come back up on you. Not in a bad way, just that you get to enjoy the flavor a second time!
