FYI, more info on that over on this Lemon Hart thread:
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=47455&forum=10&start=15

Also, if anyone needs some ideas on what to buy next, I've got an epic review of Miami Rum Festival with lots of reviews:
http://www.slammie.com/atomicgrog/blog/2014/05/25/upstart-spirits-share-spotlight-with-major-players-at-sixth-annual-miami-rum-renaissance-festival/



Most impressed by El Dorado 21, Mount Gay 1703 and Plantation Guyana 2005. The biggest new surprise: Lost Spirits Navy Style.

I found and bought a bottle of of Ron Carlos dark rum based on one of these Mai Kai threads that said it's one of the rums they use. It tastes like paint thinner and after one Cuba Libre I can say it's going to be a liter of rum that will be around for a while. I have no idea what to use this stuff in. It will have to be a bit player 8 some very strong flavored cocktails for sure.

Thankfully I also added Sailor Jerry and a bottle of cockspur to the home bar.

Also to add to Hurricane H's comment I can not say enough about Lost Spirits rum. Fabulous. I can't wait for it to be available in my area.

stormrider: The Lost Spirits folks tell me they're working on getting Florida distribution, so keep an eye out.

Re Ron Carlos, that should come with a disclaimer. It's The Mai-Kai's well rum, meaning it's used as a base and not typically a featured flavor. In the mild and medium drinks, it's usually hidden behind the juices, syrups and spices. You'll usually find Appleton, Kohala Bay and/or Lemon Hart in the stronger drinks. I don't even recommend using it in my tribute recipes. I have bottles of it gathering dust. There are much better low-cost rums out there (Cruzan, Don Q, Flor de Caña, at al.)

So glad my parents have learned that there are better things to bring back as cruise gifts besides cheap t-shirts!

Yessir, that't the hot tip. Any friends or family who visit the Carribbean are able to quietly bring back some very nice things.

Nice! How they get that back? I thought it would get grabbed before it made it off the ship.

The cost to hand-check luggage, and the time delays caused to disembarking travelers, seem to make this possible. As long as it doesn't get out of hand, I think we're okay getting an occasional "special gift" when we ourselves, or our friends and family, travel.

Very cool, Santa came to you early!

What made you buy the Stroh 80? Everyone I talk to hates it, even many here on TC. But it is an amazing ingredient, especially if you have the Frankie's Tiki Room drink recipe book.

I like that we share the same idea & have both stocked up on LH151, Plantation Overproof, Pussers Blue Label & Bacardi 151!

I already have some of your choices (El Dorado 8, Bacardi 8, Clement VSOP & Barbancourt 5 Star) on hand

Got a bottle of Skipper Demerara Rum, which I'd never seen before. And a few more bottles of Lemon Hart 151, to see me through the lean times.
