Over-proof Rum was valued greatly because of the higher alcohol content and subsequent influence on the character of the rum. Testing for proof involved pouring a little of the rum over some grains of gunpowder and setting it alight. If the mixture remained alight, then the liquid was said to be proof. If the liquid was stronger than proof, then the gunpowder would explode, thus overproof. We now know that the alcohol content at proof is 57.2 % ABV.
