Don Q

In anticipation for today's bbq I bought a bottle of white rum to make mojitos with. I find it to be much better than any Barcardi product and the price is right. Homemade simple syrup and fresh mint makes the mojito pretty tasty.

another great rum...
Dos Maderas 5 + 5

suggested to me by the MIA brother pdxstogieman (Chuck)
originates in either Guyana or Barbados and then goes to Jerez, Spain for more barrel aging.

also make a 5 + 10 but I have never seen it.

Not a head snapper Jamie, but maybe just enough heat to keep you interested.

Re: Rum
Kohana Hawaiian Agricole Rum.

I'm gonna have to garner some constraint and apportion this high end beautiful nectar to make it last.
Not for beginners. Not that it's too powerful or anything, but this is stuff you learn to "get". It could take your breath away...and the bottle is a stunning decanter that I will repurpose once empty.

Great find Conan, truly appreciating the experience.

Plantation "Xamaca Special Dry"...43% abv.

another interesting offering from this group. 21 clams, well worth it if you want a neat sipper that isn't Zaya style sweet. Dry and no heat.

Hey Jamie, are you looking for a litre of the 69% overproof?
I think I have a steady source.

Panama...no?
Had it a couple of years ago and recall liking it...possibly not the elitist version my friend Allen drinks.

Life is to short to drink bad booze. I normally dislike rum. This on the other hand is a WOW to me. Well worth $50 for a fifth. It is from Panama.

Neat, and a few drops of water. I enjoyed it both ways. I think it was better opened up with the drops.

No haven’t tried the rum yet.

As far as the Rumble, I’m not sure either. Some say rum, some say whiskey, some say a spirit all its own.

I think a spirit all it's own, based on ingredients
