    Re: Rum Forum

    Thanks for your replies, tanstaffl2 and UncleBunk. Mine is labeled as "Slow Aged 5" and is an amber rum. I did try it straight and, as I originally thought, it has a distinct harsh ethanol taste,...

    Re: Rum Forum

    I browsed the possibilities in the Alabama ABC store yesterday, and chose a bottle of Flor de Cana. I'm not sure what I think of it yet, but it seems to have won many awards. I seemed to detect a...

    I will buy a bottle of KC for a revisit. Years ago, it was one of my favorites.

    Re: Rum Forum

    I cannot get Pusser's Naval Rum in my state, but I've wanted to try it for years. So, when I was in Austin visiting my son, I bought him a bottle and some high-end ginger beer. We had Dark and...

    Or do like Jimmy Russell and just keep your bottle of bourbon in the freezer.

    Re: Hello from Smyrna, GA

    Heh. I lived there from 57 to 64. It has totally changed. I made the mistake of driving around my old neighborhood once about 15 years ago. It destroyed my fond memories.

    Re: Hello from Smyrna, GA

    Well, you have already tried Blanton's, which is one of the better high-rye bourbons. Its sister bottlings, Rock Hill Farms, Elmer T. Lee, and Ancient Ancient Age all come from the same recipe. ETL...

    Re: Reccomended

    It seems like you have already covered things pretty well. I would suggest Rock Hill Farms, but it may not be under $50, anymore.

    Yes, welcome to SB.com. Back in the day, I had a fraternity brother from Monroe. That was at Ga Tech. I can't remember his name, but his nickname was Skip. He would be in his mid-60's now. Maybe I'll...

    Re: Greetings from New Orleans

    I had a stunningly delicious Sazerac at K. Paul's about two years ago. And a very good one at NOLA (the restaurant, not the airport).

    Oh, I also welcome you to SB.com.

    Re: Greetings from Berkeley

    Don't try to make it such a "left-brain" activity. Taste and enjoy. The flavors will start reminding you of past experiences without your really trying.

    Well the good news is that it is not the flu or meningitis. The bad news is that the doctor really doesn't know what it is. I have an elevated white blood cell count, so it is probably some bacterial...

    I have had two nice vacations in southern Kentucky. The first was back in the early 80's (or maybe late 70's) to Bowling Green and Owensboro. I vividly remember a picnic...
