A few years back, Eric (Smokin5) bombed me with a bottle of 8 year old El Dorado Rum. Shortly thereafter, I traveled to Las Vegas for four days of work. As you can see, the bottle remained in Vegas



Let me just say it's "good stuff..."

Is there a little ball or anything at the bottom of a bottle of Havana Club 7 rum??

As I took a sip out of the last not even mouthful of the bottle and I feel like I swallowed something I shouldn't have...

It didn't feel like jagged plastic or broken glass though.

In a word, No.

Should you be? Probably not. Will you be? You bet your ass.


In all seriousness. That seems strange. Maybe just a bit of sediment? Or a fly?

Finally opened my bottle of El Dorado 12 Year Old earlier tonight. I had two glasses of it, one with an ice cube in it and one without ice. As usual, I used my Glencairn glass for it.

It's pretty good although a tad sweet IMO. Plus I wasn't crazy about the "orange peel" aftertaste on the finish. To be fair as a rum noob, I've only had the Havana Club 7 Year Old (Cuban) rum to compare it to.

Still for $40 it's not too bad. I might enjoy it the more I drink it. I wish I could pair it with a cigar...stupid winter.

Had a wonderful Rum Gradevole in NC a few weeks ago. If you want a great refreshing run drink try this:

2 oz. Zaya 12 yr
3/4 oz. Cardamaro
1/4 oz. Grand Marnier
1/2 oz. Orgeat
2 dashes or orange bitters
Flamed orange peel for garnish

Enjoy!

Just replenished my stash of both Plantation 5 and XO.
IMO the 5 is the best every day sipper bang for ur buck at $20 a bottle. And XO is sooo smooth

Been working my way through a bottle of Barbancourt 15 the last couple of weeks and I have to say I have been enjoying it quite a lot. Its an Agricole so a definite change up from most of my other rums but to my palate it 100% pairs well with a cigar.

Also been treating myself to some Diplomaticos Single Vintage 2000...couldn't be any different he aforementioned but WOW!!!

Goslings black seal has been my daily drink of the rum variety. Only $20 a bottle.

Here lately I have been drinking Bumbu which for a lighter rum (I usually dont like light rums) it is very smooth.
