This turned out very dry. The cheesecake itself is less than an inch high. The pan is too big, or it needs larger quantities of cream cheese filling. Anyone using a springform pan for the first time should be cautioned that the filling may leak thru and you should line the pan with parchment paper before adding any ingredients. Cannot taste the rum. We did not care for this.
