Made this according to the suggestions in these comments (3/4 each of LH151 and Smith & Cross, killing off my bottle of S&C. RIP). Wow. This one's for lovers of huge flavors and huge rums. 5/5.

Curated slightly to reflect the Beta Cocktails recipe, which calls for "1 oz Demerara 151 rum".

This drink is insanely wonderful if you modify it by replacing the overproof rum with 3/4 ounce smith & cross and 3/4 ounce Lemon Hart 151.

Yes please. Try the variation in the comments. (4 stars)
Need to try this with variation
Very bitter, slow drinking, excellent. Sweet, complex with all ingredient evident. Excellent with Smith & Cross. Easy on the Regans' lest it dominate. Maybe best on the rocks. (4 stars)
