Was reminded of why I do this whole "go to work" thing today...

Recently, I ordered three bottles of rum. When they showed up, only two had survived the journey.  Well, I reached out to the vendor and they assured me a replacement would be sent. As grateful as I w

Check out the sugar crystals lining the plasti-cork of the 20th Anniversary Plantation… it's basically a liqueur.

Paul, Those all look very interesting! I’m assuming you got these somewhere outside the US given the bottle size.

Well, I’m usually using Tapatalk when I’m on the forum, and the location doesn’t show up in that App. Besides, who can keep up with where you are in the world at any given time, except for you? [emoji6]

So is "Engulund" different from "England"? Or is it merely an alternative spelling? I looks vaguely Scandinavian!

I'm sure that I am not the only one with an order from Astor just in after their 15% off rum sale?1592252695_rum3-28-19.thumb.jpg.c23bb1305d2159051c39927d5ab4afcd.jpg

I'll post some thoughts when I crack it, maybe over the weekend. I did open the Probitas and make some daiquiris last night and it seems perfect for them. Plenty enough funk without being overpowering to the drink.

Found a Criterion sitting on the shelf! I already have one in the stash, but couldn't resist getting another.

Wow, nice! I never saw any in any store. One of my absolute favorites. T was lucky to find 2 online and never saw any at retail again.

grabbed two probitas with the expectation of it going into cocktails.

Splendid stuff! I've made some daiquiris and a pina colada so far, practically perfect for my taste.

On vacation in Newport, RI, grabbed a couple bottles from Newport Craft Distilling, I really like their Seafog 7 year Single Malt so figured I'd pick up their rums, a single barrel and a 7 year BIB

Three of these lovelies [emoji2956][emoji7]. Really great stuff - it's about what you'd expect from a mixture of Hampden and Foursquare, but it's just really well done.

Finally secured the mythical bottle-- although not too sure about the math on this one…

Do they have other barrels that are just over 10 and didn’t want to change the label?

Yeah, that’s almost 13yrs old. You’d think they would put a 12yr age statement on it to justify the price, which I’m guessing wasn’t cheap.

I’m wondering if it was tanked. I’ll ask the man behind the barrel pick. Based on the other Rhumb Runners I’ve picked up, my hopes are high for an interesting pour.
