I would base the water to sugar amount as close to the highest abv the yeast will tolerate to reduce the amount of water I had to remove.

Welcome to homebrewing of the 1600's. And one of the earliest known creations of rum.

Malaysians had been doing just this centuries before the first distillation of an actual Rum.

They called it "Brum" and it was described as being a very tasty sugar wine.

that's fine, but I don't think I'll personally take the word of 17th century malaysians as to what is "very tasty".
