I tried that several times."

"I'm new to (but loving!) aged sipping rums. I know some of the basics of differences in styles (additives vs no additives, agricole vs molasses, pot vs column vs blended). I'm looking for some guidance on finding good representative examples of specific styles to compare. I prefer rums where the bourbon notes are not overpowering, and like the toffee/spice notes more than flowery/fruity ester notes. For example, in limited tasting, I've liked Kirk&Sweeney 23yo and Foursquare Detente a lot, Dictador 20 is sweeter than I like, Mount Gay XO has little more bourbon than I like, and Flor de Cana 18yo has a prominent banana taste to me that I'm not crazy about.
So - give me your best recommendation for the style you like the best! If your recommendation is over $100 US, give me a second one, and I'll put the first one on my wish list!"

"I have reviewed Island Signature Tierra Madre and added a picture of the bottle. How do I use my picture to replace the existing default one?"

"I have read the reviews on the Facundo Exquisito and I am wondering if it’s worth buying. It’s $200 Canadian and an hours drive to get it. I have the Facundo Eximo which is good and rates at 8 but the economist in me is wondering if the Exquisito is worth the extra $100. Over to the studio audience for their input. "

"We could expect some new sherry bombs from Ron del Barrilito in the near future.
Does anyone know what stills they are using in production?
I think Bacardi Familiy is the owner since Joaquin Bacardi is the president of the company.
This would mean that they are in the industrial rum production."

"I was watching a youtube video about Scotch blending by master distillers and I recalled that the same process is followed by Rum masters and thought, hey I could make my own blend.
So I took 6 of my better rums that I thought would work well in a blend and made my own creation. I am pretty happy with it, and although it's probably a sin to have done this, however I tested it out and my friends tell me it's fantastic. "

"I see the master blender left. Evanius Harris no longer works for St. Lucia Distillers ltd. So, i need to beg for information and ask for true afficionados' insight... What will happen to this unique, divine blend, bottled as "1931"? Will it cease to be produced and ultimately, become a collector's item? Or will they keep producing it? The 2018 version, with Chairman's Reserve written upon the bottle and it being numbered, is said to be the final version and a now standardized product (same composition and taste across all released pieces of the batch). Please tell me... What will happen to my most favorite ever, bottle o' rum?"

"Hey Everyone,

So I'm looking to gift my Baby Brother a bottle or 2 of nice Rum. He is not by any means a very discerning Rum drinker not does he even have a collection to speak of. His primary go-to is Bacardi Oakheart... which from my understanding lurking around the "Rum Community" is not much to speak of unless maybe evaluating strictly based off it's price point.

I'd love to "shock him" a bit and expose him to the world of finer rums and get him 2-3 bottles. I know in the title I said 1-2 bottles but I've actually already committed to introducing him to Gosling's Black Seal Rum which he told me recently he had never tried. I'm personally not a Rum drinker as mentioned but I do enjoy sipping on Gosling from time to time, and love a nice Dark n' Story once in a while. I have no idea what your community thinks of Gosling's, it's just hte only Rum I can speak to I've ever tried that I wanted to go back to... I have not tried many rums at all though.

To the point, I'm not sure if Bacardi Oakheart offers you much to go off of regarding his preference at all. I'm under the impression it is a bit more of a sweeter rum? Also- I'm pretty confident he sips it neat and does not mix.

The bottles that are currently on my radar from lurking are...

1. Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva
2. Foursquare 2007
3. Flor De Cana 18

Truth be told I follow a YouTube Channel by a gentlemen names Jeremy Siers who is more of a Bourbon/Cigar guy and I like his opinions on Bourbon and I stumbled across I Rum video (rare for him) he did last June and these are three he reviewed and thought if I like his Bourbon suggestions, my brother might like his Rum suggestions?

Anyways, I'd love to hear the thoughts and recommendations of your community though, before I pulled the trigger on anything. Budget wise I'm looking to spend up to 100.00-150.00 in total if this is reasonable?

Thanks so much for all your help!"

"I have over the years called the rum from Haiti for Agricole.

Then I, some months ago, read the EU definition of rum which says that if a bottle should use the term Agricole on its label it must be produced in the French Overseas Departments or in Madeira and of course follow the the production rules.

Then I checked if it’s followed by some of the sugar cane juice based rum I’m familiar with, and it was.
Rhum Barbancourt, the Clairin’s and River Antoine and some others using sugar cane juice don’t use the term Agricole on their labels.

Today I found an article at, an American site, called “Rhum Agricole Is Booming. But Is What You’re Drinking Real”.

That was interesting cause they pointed out that there are lots of quite new distillery’s in the U.S. that’s misleading, mainly Americans, consumers by using the term without being a true Agricole.

They also ask the question why are they using a French word for their products often more like Clairin’s or Cachaca’s.

To be a Agricole is not just about to use sugar cane juice, it’s also about harvest season, fermentation, still requirements, aging, and more. Everything regulated in the AOC or GI’s."

"I believe it's high time I started thinking of trying Caroni rums. Where should I begin my journey? Any tips on what to drink first? Do you recommend going for Velier's or some independent bottler like kill devil, bristol Classic or CDI? And which of the Caroni is your favorite?"
