I decided I wanted a sippin' rum, so I did some (a lot) of internetting to find the best at a price I was prepared to pay. Boy, the prices of spirits in the USA can be anything up to 25% of ours!

 

Anyway, I found this: image.png.93b1280303cb6bd0d25719baf9f0b89e.png

 

Great flavour--characteristic pure rum, with some spices and wood, and citrus on the aftertaste, incredibly smooth and no added flavourings. (Sorry, I don't have a rum tasting vocabulary.) 

 

This is really nice straight. It's not up to the Ron Zacapa XO but it's a good bit cheaper. I think I may even try a mix, and given that I love both ginger and chinotto--probably a 'dark and stormy', or the splash of chinotto that I read was recommended.

What would you be expected to pay for a Rum like this?

Tasted this at a friend's house,  over ice. Nice, balanced with low caramel/toffee sweetness. Went well with a cigar. Was the last of the bottle.

As much as I love Australian wine it’s hard to beat a good French white wine.5A5A044A-6922-4C3D-BE32-EA574C93181E.jpeg.ace7d2378b2d8bd57f6fcc1376dba49f.jpeg

My son bought a bottle and discovered it played up with his stomach. I had to drink it over a period of a few months each time I visited. The sacrifices we make for our children.

This was on my list too but wasn't available😞. (I read the site wrong!)

Based on the good reviews here I had a re-read and found it could be ordered. It's on the way.

Thanks guys, can't have too much yummy aged rum--except all at once.😁

This is hands down the nicest pre mix I’ve ever had, dangerously nice.

Very hot one here in Perth over the last few days.....

Some very impressive relatively inexpensive French bubbles, massively exceeded our expectations and some ever reliable Burg.
