2070 Swizzle time. Bought the Angostura a few weeks ago but haven't been able to find the dram locally. Mentioned it to the store I got that old label Coruba from yesterday and she special ordered it and had it here for me today.

I thought I was the only one who doesn't like Pyrat! (I will take coconut, if it's Koloa.)

Restocked the Plantation 5 year and Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva last night and picked up some El Dorado 5 year.

I found that, oddly enough, Walmart carries Cruzan white for a whopping $7.99! Holy crap, I know where I'm getting my Cruzan from now on.

Some new mixers and rums I acquired this past holiday season.



Miraculously, the only thing I paid for was the Creole Shrubb which I will be putting to use very soon in a Mai Tai with the Clemont VSOP and some Appleton 12. The rest came from friends and family who were very generous this year.

The ED15 couldn't have come at a better time as my 12 year is nearing its end and LH 151 is my only other Demerara. And the V/X will come in handy as I use far too much Appleton 12 in recipes that would suffice with the downgrade. It's looking like the Velvet Falernum may be my new "go to" over Fee Bros. Anyone ever use this Peychaud bitters? Is it a suitable replacement to Angostura? I imagine the Stroh and Mocambo will have a much longer shelf life than everything else here, but atleast the gesture was nice.

Good haul!

I have some Mocambo 20 - it's a dry & savory sipper. Definitely different, you may not sip it too often.

Peychauds are great bitters - they aren't really a substitute for Angostura but have their own (usually non tiki) uses. I use them in Old Fashioneds & Sazeracs.

I recently came back from Florida with a big haul:



In the UK you can't get Kohala Bay / Coruba / Cruzan Blackstrap / Fee Bros Falernum / J.English Fassionola / Woodford Cherry Bitters / Small Hands Orgeat so I'm glad to have picked some up.

The Cruzan Gold & Tiki bitters are just much cheaper in the US! I spotted the Licor 43 minis on the last day & picked them up to try them out.

Everything else is also from FL, I'm including them because a group shot is cool

Thanks to DJMont & Hurricane Hayward for hooking me up with most of that

Yeah, tastes like trees to me. Not in an offensive way, but not something I wanna drink on the regular. I don't typically have things neat but I'd much prefer Ron Zacapa 23, El Dorado 15, or Appleton 12 from the choices I have at home over the Mocambo. Whenever I have people over I'll give em samples of that stuff to try and work my way through the bottle. Not sure what I'd use it in if I tried to utilize it in a mixed drink, maybe something that called for an agricole?

Glad you were able to go home with some Kohala Bay. I picked up two jugs when I was in FL six or so months back. Those 1.5 Liters go a long way. I assume you had to ship everything home?
