You know, I wasn't either until I tried Captain Morgan's Private Stock - that stuff's absolutely delicious. A dessert rum, if you will, but a lovely little tipple. It's particularly good at 10a when one needs a bit of the hair of the dog...

I do quite like the bottle on this one!


Mahalo HopeChest, Iím gonna give it a try.I do like the sweeter rums.
Cheers

I'm told that Captain Morgan Private Stock tastes similar to Zaya.

most recent purchases were a couple of antique rums bottled in the 1950s

Thank goodness - the Walmart all the way on the other side of town has restocked with Cruzan Light and Aged, both at about $7.80 a bottle. Ridiculous! Seriously the only reason I even go to Walmart. So, yeah: purchased both Cruzan rums.

While I just mistakenly bought the wrong Lemon Hart (Original over 151), I also saw a bottle of Pussers which I'll probably pick up with a bottle of Smith & Cross, after I heard good things about it.

The whole idea of rum rarity is a very new concept to me, I feel if the brand is really obscure and I've only seen it in one cocktail I should probably pick up a bottle to diversify my collection

Warboys - the Pussers has an amazing aroma! Surprisingly I don't recall sipping it... Also, if you see some Ron Pampero Aniversario from Brazil, pick that up because it's truly an amazingly smooth sipping rum. And with the Pusser's you can make Pusser's Painkillers which are often a hit with folks less familiar with cocktails.

There are a lot of good rum tasting posts here on Tiki Central which can help you diversify your rum collection. It's a fun endeavor because there are so many interesting variations out there, like the Lemon Hart and the Smith & Cross choices.

I still don't see your purchase of Lemon Hart 80 as a mistake - there are many here in the US mainland that envy your find.

As for the Pusser's, you should really make sure not to grab the 80 proof version. The 109 proof Pusser'S is the one to go for.

This arrived in the mail today.



Never heard about it before. I was looking at a local stores online catalogue and this looked interesting so i thought i'd buy a bottle. It wasn't cheap so i hope it's good. On opening i can smell that it has a quite a pleasant floral aroma (I can't say i know what hibiscus actually smells like) but i can't pick up on any coconut at all, although my sense of smell is not so great so maybe it's there and i just can't notice it. I'm looking forward to trying it.

Went ahead and bought a 1.75 liter bottle of Kirkland Signature Spiced Rum - indeed nothing special, but I did a side by side comparison with Seven Tiki and found the color to be nearly identical. Aroma and taste for each individual rum was aligned in the same fashion where Seven Tiki smelled and tasted a little more vanilla, and Kirkland a little less so but a bit more pungent, but I'm sure that's due to its 92 proof. In either case the taste in mixed drinks wasn't distinguishable so I'll likely be buying this as my spiced rum until I deem fit otherwise.

Finally went to Malahat Spirits for a tasting. I wasn't expecting a whole lot but was fairly impressed.
Picked up a bottle of the ginger later on. I bet someone who knows what they're doing could make a really good drink outta this!




Oddly enough, we also tasted the Kirkland spiced rum there, too. I thought that was really super vanilla, but haven't tried the Seven Tiki in a long time. Not really my thing. I thought the Malahat spiced was pretty good - all their flavors are real.

I live in Texas and even thought Costco recently started selling hard liquor, we don't get the Kirkland Signature brands due to the crazy liquor laws in Texas. The store is actually run by WBLiquors. Although you can get some good prices, overall it is not the same as Costco deals in other states.
