Been into rum now for about a year. Can’t stop buying rums that I just know I won’t open and drink . Becoming obsessed with collecting so I’ve had to build a display bar and already it’s too small now my 1931 range arrived today! I’ve seen some of you post that you have many hundreds in yours so I’m going to have to make some space to expand !!

While I am of the opinion that rum is for drinking, this nevertheless looks neat.

I just can’t bring myself to open the good ones yet. They’d be wasted on me at this stage of my journey. They’ll be used later down the track when I feel I may be able to appreciate the taste better. From what I’ve read about Caronis , I don’t think I’m ready for burnt rubber and tar just yet !
i did get 2 bottles of the centenario Real so I can open one now though and save the other for later

A nice collection. I would also enjoy the look of these Chairman's instead of drinking them. I mean it's a full set and it's not easy to find all of them.
I would wait with these Caronis, you are still into sweet rums. Try some Chairman's first, like vintage 2005 or Evanius Harris edition to get an idea of some dirty aromas.

I can totally relate! My collection is about 30 bottles, and I have about 10 that I am waiting to open. I'm telling myself that when I next get the urge to buy more rum, I'm going to open one of these instead. I still came home with a bottle of Foursquare Empery I found yesterday... So far, still on the unopened shelf!

Empery is nice, with sherry finish. Better that the Port Cask Finish, it was diluted to 40%. Also better than the Principia, it's too sharp and too young for me.
One of the best Foursquares with sherry finishes.

Nice! I have a couple of Foursquares open now, and based on the thread about how long rums last once open, I may need to drink those before opening the Empery. I would have thought that they would last longer, but I guess oxidation eventually takes a toll.

Really good collection, especially all of the Chairman's 1931's in the first row. However, I would hide that bottle of Barcardi Carta Blanca "vodka" in the back.

I’m ashamed to say that I actually don’t mind a Bacardi if it’s mixed with Diet Coke and a big squeeze of lime. Has to be Diet Coke though- nothing else really works. I suppose that’s the bacardis fault !
Anyway, the flavour reminds me of a party when I was young  and was given Bacardi for the first time and ended up fingering some chick under a table so maybe the good memories confuse me about the quality of this rum !!!
