I finally tested out the Hors d'Age in a mai tai last night. Instead of 2 oz. Appleton's Extra, I went 1 oz. Extra + 1 oz. Hors d'Age. While I enjoyed the powerful flavor the Martinique rum brings to the drink, I still prefer the pure Appleton's mai tai. My wife was another story. She flat-out disliked the blend and insisted that I "quit experimenting."

That said, in my opinion, the Hors d'Age far outperformed St. James Extra Old. It wasn't even close. Don't listen to the Beachbum on this one - Extra Old is not a decent substitute for its older, mellower brother. Hors d'Age is well worth the extra $8-10.
