Re: Rum From Seven Fathoms Deep

Age isn't everything but I think it is safe to say there are far better rums to be had for that kind of money. Could be fun to have it in the collection, however.

Re: Rum From Seven Fathoms Deep

Hi GeoD, welcome to Refined Vices! I tried it shortly at the RumFest two years ago I think but I didn't have the time to do a proper tasting so all I can say it wasn't bad. :| I'm pretty sure some of the forum members have tried it though, lets hope they respond with a review. What was the name of t...

Re: Toward an Authentic Rum Profile

Interesting thread Jimbo. I'd also like to encourage people to focus on the topic here. To start off, the first rum that comes to my mind is the fantastic St. Nicholas Abbey 10 year old Rum from Barbados (now 12 year old) that has been produced by the foursquare rum distillery. I have also tasted th...

Re: The Dalmore Trinitas 64 for £100,000

“£100,000 and several hundred pounds are two very, very different ballparks. So few people could even dream of spending £100,000 for a bottle of something that is destined for consumption. How can you argue that it’s anywhere near ok? When such a large percentage of the world’s population can’t eve...

Re: The Dalmore Trinitas 64 for £100,000

Press release says the Trinitas has whisky from 1868 which would mean it has over 140 year old whisky. Question is, how much whisky would be remaining in the barrel after 140 years in the Highlands climate? And would it taste like complete wood?

Also, what the hell is Indonesian patchouli?
