As an update, I fermented with this yeast at 86-91F and it took longer than my typical Red Star yeast but the ABV is north of 11%. I have stripped it but nothing more yet. 

I'll report on how that goes. So far I have gotten some interesting aromas.

Please update with your results after distillation. I looked into this stuff a few months ago, but we ultimately went a different way. The fermentation temp is what turned me away from this product. I like to ferment my rum hot and your results might have made my decision more concrete. You can't beat the price though when compared to lallemand RM.
