A delicious baked cheesecake with butterscotch flavoured goodness. Serve with a decent dollop of sweetened cream and a handful of freshly toasted pecan nuts. Perfect for dessert.
If rum flavoured extract cannot be found, substitute in half the amount of dark rum. Maple flavoured extract can be purchased online.

Next time I'll reduce the rum flavoring by a little because it seemed to slightly overpower the other ingredients. I also left off the sour cream topping. Instead, I drizzled caramel sauce on the cooled cheesecake and decorated it with toasted pecan halves. My family enjoyed it! - 11 Nov 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
EVERYONE else LOVED this cheesecake! It was definitely a hit, although not my personal favorite. Also, I do prefer a much thicker crust on a cheesecake than the recipe calls for...so if you like thick crusted cheesecake...you may consider tinkering with the recipe a bit. - 19 Sep 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
