I finally found a bottle of Banks 5 Island, which of course led to a Daiquiri showdown ...

I'm really curious about this rum, unavailable in Florida as far as I know. Is it comparable to Hamilton Pot still?

Curious as well. Someone described it as a cross between Smith & Cross and Rum Fire which has me excited. Unfortunately no sightings of this in Austin yet.

I'd say the Smith and Cross-Rum Fire hybrid description is a smidge closer to the mark than Hamilton, though it is a bit smoother and more rounded than any of those, probably owing to its age. Per the bottler's notes it's a blend of Worthy Park and Hampden distillates, and that's definitely evident in the aroma. Very fruity, hogo-y and unmistakably Hampden-y but with more oak, smoke, and leather, and it can be almost tangy at times, which I chalk up to the sherry cask finish. When you actually taste it it goes down pretty smooth, and if you've had Worthy Park's Rum Bar Gold you'll be in familiar territory; caramel and cream, but on the dry side. It lingers on the palette for a while and if you take a breath right after swallowing you get hit with what almost reminds me of vanilla ice cream.

I haven't mixed anything with it yet, will report results when I do.

My usual go-to for straight-up Daiquiris: 2 oz rum, 3/4 oz lime, 2 tsp granulated organic sugar.

It's almost a dead heat. I give Plantation a slight edge, but that might just be due to my familiarity with it. These are easily the two best multi-island, blended white rums. Havana Club is the only other rum I've had that makes a better Daiquri. Also a fan of El Dorado 3, which is sort of a middle ground between the two styles.

Banks also edged out another 86-proof rum, Cana Brava (which I rate just below the above group along with the 89-proof Bacardi Heritage/1909). ...
