    They're gonna have to order the 12 and 15 for me, I'll probably green light that after I try an Appleton or two.

    What's the standard price tag of Mt Gay 1703? Like $100-200?

    I once found a bottle for $40. You had better believe that came home with me

    Squire, have you posted thoughts on the Barbancourt (spelling?) you bought the other day instead of the ED. I saw both the 4 year and 7 year today, and thought of you.

    Re: Rum Forum

    Time for my Mambo lesson so I am off to Cuba today. And that means rum!

    Some Cuban friends suggested I try Varadero because they think it is better than the Havana Club. Works for me and besides I have Havana Club in liquor cabinet and I am always up for something new!

    US cell phones don't work there and I am told internet connectivity sucks anyway (dial up when they have it all in most cases) so it sounds like I will be offline for awhile.

    That probably won't do me any harm either...
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Ray the Barbancourt 8 is very dry, good legs and scent, it's distilled from cane juice syrup rather than molasses and has a medium body, for a rum of course. In whisky terms it's more akin to a Canadian Rye than a Kentucky Bourbon. I plan to use it in cocktails.

    Picked up an Appleton Estate V/X (code for five?) today and cocktail hour might happen early today.
