In preparation for my next tiki night (Cocktails of the Mai Kai) I bought one new rum and restocked others that I know won't we survive the night if I don't have extra in my cabinet:

-Appleton Signature Blend 750ml
-Coruba Dark Jamaican Rum 1L
-Cruzan Aged Light Rum 750ml
-Kohala Bay Dark Jamaican Rum 1.75L

Very excited for the Kohala Bay and will likely reserve it only for Mai Kai cocktails in the future.

I tried ordering it from Sunset Corners, even got a few friends to go in on 6 bottles to maximize shipping and they let me go through with the payment only to email me the next day saying sorry we don't ship to Texas. My last bottle is getting dangerously low. I need a kind soul in Florida to pick me up some and send it this way!!!!!!

The only place it seems to be available online is through
Sunset Corners. The bottle is about $24 but the S/H is about $26. That's a big tough to swallow but you figure 1.75L of a hard to acquire rum is sorta worth it, but again it's only going to be reserved for Mai Kai tribute cocktails. I ordered on a Wed and received it the following Tuesday.

Made from the sugar cane's primary product - and not molasses -
falls on uncle Arrack's side of the family rather than cousin Rum's.

Quite sweet and dangerously drinkable - does pack a punch - 100 proof.

Served here neat, with a nice cold glass of coconut water.

Something new for the reserve. Really tasty; rather light but stops short of being dry, more like semi-sweet. Dangerously smooth for 94 proof.

Kirk and Sweeney 12 and 23 yr. old and a bottle of Zaya. Zaya is 19 bucks right now at Hi Times in Costa Mesa.
K & S 12 is a must have for Rum Babalu’s.
Cheers

Picked up three today:



EC12 = a restock Ive never really mixed with but the Death & Co book recommends in a few drinks (including the Boulivardier)

MGXO = one I've tried, purchased to see if I enjoy having a bottle on hand to sip neat

The Stiggins Fancy was just to satisfy my curiosity!

Besides joining the pineapple party with a diaquiri or drinking it neat - anyone got any other suggestions for trying it out?

Picked up Cruzan in the spirit of traveling to St. Croix in a week. Haven't tried a drop yet- I picked bitter oranges, took the zest off in long swathes, poured rum over it, and will add sugar later for a curaçao style treat!



I have another small jar going with Texas peaches. That one will get cardamom, black pepper, long pepper, and clove.
