      I don't know rum, so I won't pretend to.  But in several things I've read, including the Aroya patent (or whoever he was), rum specific flavor comes in the tails after the nasties.  I think that it goes something like, 1.  do a strip run.  2. start your spirit run.  Cut out the heads, switch to heart, make your tails cut, but keep collecting.  I think that once the tails are down to about 30% you start collecting again.
      Like I said, I don't know, just what I've heard and kept in mind for when I do start a rum.  Maybe the lack of rum flavor is from not enough molasses, combined with not catching those late tails.  I dunno, but might be something you want to research.

      Thank you for all your information Alex. You really are quite an expert!
      It would be great to sit down with you and see you in action.
      I have printed out your email and will start off another brew today with 1/3 Molasses, 1/3 sugar, 1/3 water. When it come to distillation, I'll put in 2 gals Dunder.
      Re your comment on your PS2, I have 6'-8" x 2.5" dia copper tube outside just dying to be turned into something... ....
      Incidentally I have a metre Liebig that works a lot better than the condenser on the WC Still.
      Hope your basking in your 25 C weather - it's snowing here!
