Re: Black Tot Rum - Last Consignment

This is an incredible rum, its just too bad for most of we can`t buy it. I was lucky enough to taste it at Tales of the Cocktail and i would summarize it as a rum with many and deep flavors and a very long finish. Would LOVE me a bottle!

Very old rums

Have anyone tried old rums? like from the 30s to the 50s? i just made a Mai Tai with JWray&Nephews old Dagger rum, thats Jamaican dark rum. It`s a bit fiery with dark tones of molasses and dried fruits, and spicy and woody. Very balanced and complex.I imagine that JWrays 17 year old rum must have ta...

Re: You Can’t See It to Believe It

I can believe that. i dont think that thing will be a trend either. What is a trend which i think will also stay is classic /vintage cocktails and fresh unspoiled ingrediets in both old and new cocktails.

Re: Show off your rum collection

The XM10 is very yummy,full bodied, round, with lots of toffee-like flavor. The XM12 Millenium lacks much of that toffee-like flavor and is less sweet, a bit lighter. I have written about these rums on my blog in demerara part one, and i post part two in a few days, it will cover XM10, 12, Samaroli ...

Re: Italian deals..rum from Rome

I dont know how on earth i missed this post!

But i can certainly attest that the 15 year Silver Seal is one of the best rums i ever had.

It was so good that i couldnt stop making Mai Tais with it, until the bottle was finished 2 weeks later.

Chili is really nice with mint and as garnish very striking but as you said, a little goes a long way inside of the drink itself.

The orange flower extract in oil is not the same thing! so be VERY careful with the 0.5 drop here..or if a t all..i would use it my bath instead.

Orange flower water is a entirely different story. I can find it everywhere here, do you want me to send you a bottle?

I have now tasted it neat and my first thought actually was that this rum is best for mixing, but not with orange juice, maybe fresh lime, simple syrup and soda? i will play a little with it in the coming weekend.

Count, the Havana Club Añejo Blanco (or the 3 years) is the rums to use for a Mojito rather than plantation Jamaica..in my opinion..

I LOVE mint!
