Ah, I just looked at the picture more closely and it looks like you may have gotten the standard unflavored Fugu vodka, Nui.

They make 3 versions: unflavored, horchata, and habanero. Even with the new Cutwater branding at the top, the bottle should still say horchata or habanero for those varieties.

While in Europe last fall we stopped by a distillery in Liechtenstein and found this.




The family was very friendly and proud of their products. We got a nice tour with tastings of various products even though they weren't officially open when we first arrived. Of course we had to bring a few things back.

Really pleased with my day's shopping - some esoteric sippers plus I'm filling the overproof section in my cocktail cabinet! The OFTD is delicious, this is the first time I've tried it.

Nui - Cutwater Spirits just opened their brand new distillery here in SD last Wednesday. I got to go on Saturday and I was very impressed! Lots of good food and drinks, even a lot of tiki ingredients used in their drinks. Tours every hour and cheap prices on their to go booze. Check it out next time you are in town.

Hi times Wine Cellars was out of what I was looking for so I checked out the clearance shelves. The FPC Grog was 8 bucks. It’s 100 proof spiced rum, a bit on the sweet side but I’ll find a use for the 2 bottles I bought. The Ron Diaz was 5 bucks and I know nothing about it. We will see if the orgeat was worth 20 bucks(regular price). The Clement bottle is wild - I know the rum is good. I got it at regular price.

Hehe. The clearance shelves lured me into buying a bottle of that Grog a couple of months ago. Cool bottle shape, fun label design, horrible drink. At least I did not care for it at all drinking it neat, maybe I can find a mixer that will make me happier.

I know I'm going out on a limb but I'm gonna go ahead and say it... "Don't trust Alaskan rum! (Especially when it is actually a 'vodka' pretending to be a rum.) But I'll drink most anything for $8 a bottle..."

I have also purchased the graffiti-bottle Clément VSOP and that orgeat in the past as well. I like the orgeat and put it on par with the Small-Hand one. Not overly sweet, with more of a drier, toastier almond flavor. Not as "marzipan-y" as some other brands can be.


I picked up a bottle of the Clément Rhum Agricole Vieux - Cask Collection when I was there earlier this week. I haven't had a chance to try it yet but I have high hopes for it. (I normally prefer the Rhum JM agricoles over the Clément but I haven't tried either's vieux yet.)

edit: Ooh, I just saw that there is a
5 Minutes of Rum episode on the Clément Cask Collection Vieux. He seems to think it is like the VSOP only much more assertive.
