What Rum/Rhum did you buy today?

Interested if this has sugar added to it? Let us know your tasting notes.

In some of the lists of sugar measured in rum, which was something of a "thing" a few years ago, Flor de Cana was noted to have at least some sugar in some of the rums tested but not all. No one had the 25yo on their list but the 18yo was noted to have a bit of sugar (but less than some brands). I have had the 18yo but not the 25yo as best I can recall and it was OK but not something I felt the need to buy.

 

And at that time I felt the need to buy quite often so you can take that as you will! :blink:

Lol appreciate it. That’s why I appreciate forums like this, saves me from

shelling out the big bucks for stuff that may not be worth it.

I saw a page back that the 4S Sagacity was suspected to be EU only.  I just found it in KC for $65ish.

Definitely not EU only. It is in New York and even in little ol' Atlanta that I know of. It is a 750ml bottle so a US release was apparently always planned. They often come in pairs but no word on another label as of now that I can find..

What is the second cask on that? I see bourbon but can’t make out the second one.

Havent heard specifics on #2, but the distributor said both would be in the more reasonable price range this year.  Also, next year, a new release every 2 months is expected.

This should be the next one up after Sagacitywd3irsh063841.jpg

Oh nice, another no-nonsense ex-bourbon release with excellent age. What's the naming convention here, say, why not "2006" ?

Balanced by all the amazing spirits that I've never heard of before joining and now must go out and find!  

Double Win!!

2006 was an EU only release done in sequence with the other annual releases.

I'd like to see another Cognac matured blend personally.

Another problem with calling it 2006 is that if it was released in 2019 and it is a full 14 years old it would be from 2005. Which was already a release in the US as a 12yo.

More of a reference to the flurry of blogs talking about sugar in rum lists a couple of years ago. I of course know that added sugar in rum is still a thing! 😎

A liquor store stop today lead to a few nice bourbons and a Zaya 16.  I never saw one before so, why not.

Agreed-- but it doesn't come close to the weight and chunk-ability of the Cenote "Green Orange" stopper. The Whistlepig 15 (and Boss Hogs) and Glenmorangie Signet tops are also impressive if their heft.

Thanks for quoting me here, I seem to have forgotten I opened that one up.

You must have lost a lot of weight over the past year— glad you were safe at home.

As of yesterday 90 lbs, the tolerance certainly isn't what it once was, likely a good thing in truth.

Nicely done— it certainly creates a more delicate and interesting threshold/tipping point.
