You're right in some cases, but considering that many molasses based rums are aged at 80% ABV, that's a lot of alcohol, and tax. On the other hand, there is a market for unique spirits and there aren't aged rums of that proof on the market in the US. But, you can't carry spirits over 70% ABV on airplanes in any country by international convention.
