I didn’t find very many LE bourbons this year, so I’ve been eyeing this for awhile and decided to pick it up. I hope its a pretty good one.

I was able to try a small pour and yes it was very nice. Not nice enough to get me to buy one! But pretty nice.😎

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.

If I saw that bottle in the $35 range I might buy several! Presuming they had several to sell of course.

 

There were two or three left on the shelf… if find myself there anytime soon, I can grab them for you.

I told myself not to buy more bottles until a few empty themselves .. and then my usual place said just got in Foursquare Redoutable.  Well, nuts.  And then a bottle of Stolen Overproof Rum fell into the basket.  Surely I can't just toss it out, right?

Where does Foursquare come up with these ridiculous names?

The Redoutable was a French warship that served in the Caribbean for a time and was the ship that fought HMS Victory at Trafalgar and is presumed responsible for killing Admiral Nelson. A "formidable" ship indeed!

 

Perhaps that could be the source... 

 

Although the name of a French ship from a rum company on a formerly British island could seem a bit odd! 😎

Alas, the Foursquare line is still unobtainable in my area. We do have access to Real McCoy and the occasional independent bottler Foursquare cask, but still nothing from their flagship line! ☹️

Same here, but Real McCoy does the job, for the most part.

But, not nearly as ridiculous as some rum tasting notes!  😂

Still bourbon-free for 2021, but back from a mini road trip with some rum…

Have you tried the Hampden yet? Just picked it up and thought it was good. Like everything these days, especially if it’s “limited” it seemed a little pricey. Have had everything else except the Blackadder for a while now but not tasted them again recently. Certainly an interesting mix of rhyme/rums!

Not yet on the Hampden Great House-- but certainly during the upcoming weekend.  I'm in the throes of major dental work and everything tastes a bit off, so I've been hitting more standard fare.

Let us know what you think on the Hampden.  Would love to know how it stands up to the 12yr. and 27yr. I picked up.  Personally, I've found younger Hampden a bit harder to approach.

That's awesome, I saw the Transcontinental Trinidad, hoped it was Caroni, but Paul informed me that those stocks were depleted a year or two before this was barreled.  

 

Was the Golden Devil Caribbean 21 the stuff they got that was somewhat mixed and they couldn't define the source?  If so, let me know your thoughts, I passed on that one and want to know if I made a good/bad decision.

Also forgot to mention, purchased about a month back a 2009 Habitation Velier WP 11yr.  Looking forward to trying this in due time.

The Caribbean is supposedly Cuban.  

 

The Transcon is not Caroni but I heard it was excellent so I took the plunge.
