Also, I spotted this El Dorado which I'd never seen before. Anyone know the deal? No indication of age.






the El Dorado plain dark rum is lousy. I can't remember if i've had their plain white rum, probably not as the plain dark was such a turn-off.

Their 3-yr-old white rum is awesome but hard to find- altho it appears to be peaking out from the side of your photo- you should grab it!

Yes, that's the 3 year white next to it. I've seen it in a few liquor stores around here and have considered picking it up. I've never had a white Demerara. In what applications would you use it? Could it work in place of a white Puerto Rican or Spanish style white? Good in daiquiris?

I sip it neat tbh.

but yes- you can use a white english-style rum, be it el dorado or appleton estate, in any white rum cocktail for a flavor profile that will differ as you might expect from the spanish rum taste. my secret- i find it works particularly well as a substitute for dark rum in a dark and stormy, i call that a "Sunshower." works well in a cuba libre and in bajan punch too.

I think I love the Denizen a bit too much. A bottle rarely lasts more than 2 or 3 days or so.

Went to Hi-Times today for some Irish Whiskey and bought a little bit more than I had planned. The flor de Cana was on the clearance rack for 9 bucks. The Cherry spiced rum was 4 bucks on the rack-not sure if I can muster the courage to open the bottle and take a whiff. Couldn’t resist the Pyrat rum barrel. Hi-time’s clearance rack is always worth a look.There’s bout 4 mo bottles of the F d C on the rack- I think it usually goes for bout 19-20 dollars a bottle.

I wish they had clearance online! ;_;

EDIT: So I just bought myself a fine bottle of Angostura 1919 as my fancy bottle of the moment. Aside from a 2070 Swizzle, any other recommendations for this rum? Worst case scenario I will consume it neat.

!919 has a sweet nose( I like sweeter rums) so I was surprised at this rums bite. A medium sized chunk of ice made it very sip-able. I buy a lot of rums cuz the bottle catches my eye. You end up with lots of nearly full bottles in yer bar.
Cheers

The color and finish of the bottle sorta resembles a cannon ball. !2.99,750ml, 70 proof.
Btw, I also snagged a small bottle of Banks (100 ml @ 2.99) If I don’t like it-nobig loss.

I gotta say I'm actually kinda disappointed - I tried a bit neat and it was almost like a spiced rum like a Seven Tiki. Definitely vanilla notes. I'll make that swizzle soon enough but so far I feel like I made the mistake in getting it.

I don't know that I'd call this (or any of its contemporaries) a "rum" so much as I'd call it a "rum-based liqueur", but based on some favorable reviews, I'm hoping it will prove useful in playing around with that old coffee-pineapple-rum flavor profile.

i sampled that Brinley neat, and it was damn delicious- i agree it was a liqueur.

The available limes have not been too good the last couple of months so I've been trying to find a rum I like to sip w/ ice. I like Barbancourt 8yo, but I also want something "darker", fuller flavor. I liked Matusalem "Gran Reserva", but my favorite so far is Pampero Aniversario, and today I finally found some bottles of it locally. I bought them all, and grabbed another bottle of Barbancourt, so I'm all set for a while.

Pampero Aniversario is heavenly. It's always a big hit among non-rum friends too. It's just so buttery smooth and tasty.

Zaya was a bit too much vanilla for me to enjoy as a sipper, but for the same reason I did like to mix with it. (the opposite of what many have said) I will certainly keep an eye out for Papa's Pilar, which has been mentioned a lot here.
