let us know how that Cali Agricole drinks.


I'm not surprised that we didn't get a reply. This was my first Agricole purchase, and now I don't remember why I bought it, but I think I needed it for some recipe or something. It is 'pungent' to say the least. Let me elaborate: I bought a bottle of Dillon's White Rhum for $14, and $5 of that is just tax, and this is a much better Rhum. Look, Martinique Rhum is special, and a bunch of guys in California who specialize in Gin and Absinthe just don't have what it takes. That being said, I do like their Absinthe, and love the fact that I can get it in a tiny bottle (since I really don't use that much).

Black Mask Original. Probably not too hot but I'm just getting in to experimentation with making Mai Tai's and other exotica drinks. For the cheaper mixing stuff what do you suggest?

For a good, inexpensive mixer Cruzan, either light or dark, is highly recommended.

While in Florida last week I made sure to pick up one of the amazing Tiki Diablo mugs from Mai Kai and a short supply of Kohala Bay. Picked up the Pussers today to make some Painkillers for guests in a couple days.

Cruzan Blackstrap Rum is our latest purchase, loving it after being introduced to it at Hale Pele. Also picked up some of Eastside Distillings "Belowdecks" coffee rum not that long ago.

Four bottles of Lemon Hart 151. Don't what I'll do when I run out.
Oh, and a half gallon of Myers's Dark.

aloha, tikicoma

Papa’s Pilar and a bottle of Coruba “Spiced”. The Papa’s was about 10 bucks under list price and I got the Coruba for 5 bucks on the clearance rack (retails for 15 bucks). Both at Hi-Times, Costa Mesa, Calif. I had read DJ’s review on the Papa’s so I grabbed it when I saw it.
Cheers
Btw, I could not resist the Galliano gift pack cuz it came with a tiki mug.

I just picked up a bottle of Angostura 5-year-old and immediately compared it head-to-head with the 7-year-old. It's surprising how different they are. The 7-year is superior, much smoother and better as a sipping rum. The 5-year is sharper and spicier. Both are fine gold mixing rums that I would recommend.

Good hear someone talking about Angostura's rum Hurricane Hayward - I'm never sure about them so I've not brought them, what would you compare them to?

I finally got a small bottle of Tawny Port to try out in a few recipes calling for it & some Neisson Blanc 55% - the Neisson comes highly recommended by all & sundry.
