To have (sugar) or to have not (sugar)

Posted 25 May '22 by DB ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 5 ratings

Sure, it's a fact sugar or other materials are added after distillation for whatever purpose - I never said there wasn't - but it ain't some mass effort (in my opinion) to cover up garbage booze. Some cases? Yeah! But not (again in my opinion) to the level that some might have you believe. Like with audio - people often PERCEIVE loudness as higher quality - it's all in the education. (Which I'm al...

Rum & Coke

And I do prefer Mexican Coke to the American HFCS version - just seems to go better, for me anyway...(^_^)...

Have you been to the Rum Vault yet?

Definitely! Thanks!...

what is your daily rum ? and other spirits

Posted 24 May '22 by OdysseusUnbound ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ | 40 ratings

Scott T, ย  Yeah, I suppose that's the sole advantage of having a ridiculous government monopoly on spirits. Stuff like BT is regularly available (but not cheap). There are so many standard rums and bourbons (not unicorns) that we can't get though: RL Seale, Doorly's, Admiral Rodney, ย Elijah Craig Barrel Proof, Old Granddad 114, Old Forester 1920. And don't get me started on our pitiful tequila s...

Rumratings club

Posted 23 May '22 by kudzey (PREMIUM) ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ | 38 ratings

I was a member for a year and I generally recommend it. Mind that they send you so various rums that you will likely hate some but there might be also done that you'll love. It helped me a lot to calibrate my preferences....

Which of these rums would you choose

Posted 22 May '22 by cowboykidd ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 10 ratings

I have only tried the Zafra out of those, but it is really good.ย  While I have not tried the Abuela, I have tried the Centenario 30 mentioned by another poster.ย  It is quite good too.ย  It is different from the Zafra.ย  Much sweeter.ย  Both very good in their own ways.ย  Still not sure which I like more.ย ย ...

Appleton 21yr new vs old

Posted 22 May '22 by cowboykidd ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 10 ratings

I have not tried the newer stock of the 21.ย  I have often found Appleton to have a distinctive and unappealing after taste, even with the 21.ย  However in recent purchases, I haven't noticed the after taste nearly as much.ย  I am not sure if that is a function of me getting used to it or if they have changed their blending approach.ย ย ...

One can never go back to other spirits after rum

Posted 21 May '22 by Paul B ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 426 ratings

RonRumHead: My being banished from the Dome comes from my refusal to get a smart phone. In 2017, admission was by those cardboard season tickets or after market tickets on smart phones only. In years before that, I spent LOTS of money to buy aftermarket tickets to sit close to the field and get that section fired up making noise. It did work and I could mention a few QB's who we all adversely aff...

Always sharpen your mixology skills

Posted 21 May '22 by Paul B ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 426 ratings

Yohobro: That is a very brave drink that you made. I would have never guessed that a Haitian spiced rum would go well with coconut. That Baron Samedi is one very unique spiced rum. The picture on the front label also scared the hell out of my neighbor. That bottle is now long gone from my collection, but I need to find it again....

Why are Plantation rums so maligned on this site?

Posted 21 May '22 by Nickbroon ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง | 7 ratings

Sugar, I'm sure its could be a very emotive issue. I get distillers make sugar rich rums (its the base product) but come on guys, the public are dafties. Give us more I know that you are capable. Listening to stiff little fingers at the moment.ย ...

Do we rate cachaรงa on this site as well?

Posted 20 May '22 by Solidfunk ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 10 ratings

Nevermind, I found all theย cachaรงa bottles, for some reason didn't show up in search the first time I tried.ย ...

Is this the place for me...

Posted 19 May '22 by bar la moura ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท | 95 ratings

in my bar the alcoholic bestsellers are: 1 cocktails and aperitives (have a menu just for them),ย  2 wine from my region only (have red, white, sweet, dry) 3 beer 4 gin and tonic (yes those years G&T is very in) 5 liqueurs, various amaro 6 spirits so it s a question of taste, some like strong, some not, and i try to find also best liquors to satisfy my customers ย ...

Shipping times for Rum Ratings Club single orders

Posted 18 May '22 by Bendi ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 0 ratings

I wanted to send a bottle of Appleton Estate 21-Year to a friend in Indiana, and lucked out with Rum Ratings both having it in stock and shippable to that state. Needless to say I ordered some immediately. Ideally I want it to arrive by May 27th for a celebration he has planned; does anyone who's ordered single bottles off the site know how long it takes to ship? Thanks....

Advice for rum newbies on "top shelf" rums

Posted 16 May '22 by bar la moura ๐Ÿ‡ญ๐Ÿ‡ท | 95 ratings

here a mount gay 1703 master select cost around 180$ and the XO triple cask around 55$, a yamazaki 12 around 330$, a remy martin XO around 160$, but ok a francois voyer XO around 80$ so i m thinking that distance is a key factor about the price, what comes from another continent is more expensive ... another factor: how much a nation imports also is important, cheaper spirits in europe you can...

How to further appreciate rum

Posted 16 May '22 by DB ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 5 ratings

I don't know if it was company-wide, probably, but my local TWM ditvhed Russianpmade vodka shortly after the war broke out. Beluga, Russian Standard, and a few of the ones bottled for TWM (Spirits Direct). I don't even know if they were all really made in Russia, or if some of them just sounded too Russian? Hmmm.... but they did highlight at least one from Ukraine. I can't recall which one it was....

Where to buy online? I live in US (SW Florida)

Posted 16 May '22 by DB ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ | 5 ratings

I've got a Total Wine very near to me, and they have a decent enough rum aisle, not quite as big as the Tequila (which is sizeable) so no signs of it shrinking yet at least! But they can't carry everything! Definitely check out all of the mom & pop shops in your area. I've had a few more than surprise me with selections not available at TWM, and some selections actually cheaper than TWM. Now...

Any other decent dark rums similar to Watson's Trawler?

Posted 14 May '22 by angobando ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ | 8 ratings

Well, I'm half bottle through and finding it more and more interesting with every sip. I understand it's not the best dark rum in the world, but I quite like it. So I am looking for the best dark rums with rich Demerara taste. Can anybody point me in the right direction?ย ...
