Lost Spirits Distillery 151 Proof Cuban Style Rum 750ml (Previously $40)
Our madcap distiller friend Bryan Davis is back with a new 151 proof Cuban style rum that represents his best work to date. While Lost Spirits started off as a whisky operation, no one can argue that their best releases so far have been the Navy Style and Polynesian rums. They are taking the country by storm and this new Cuban style rum -- lighter and more focused on the sugar cane flavor -- just debuted at this year's Tales of the Cocktail. Despite its incredibly high proof, this rum drinks like a dream. The flavors are seamless and subtle, never funky or out of whack, and the cocktail mixing potential is endless. Plus, it's only $40! No one else is putting out rum of this quality, let alone of this value (and the label is absolutely gorgeous). Bryan Davis is killing it right now.
