Episode 26 of 5 Minutes of Rum is posted. Rhum Barbancourt 8, Sippin’ Safari, and the Port au Prince cocktail. Shoutout to Hurricane Hayward for mentioning here on TC last week that LH151 was going on hiatus - I got the rare "breaking news" segment on a rum podcast.

Kevin, so happy you picked R L Seale for your recipe. I got this bottle as a gift and had no idea what to do with besides drinking it neat.

Cool, yeah it seems like it would be a solid swap for a gold Puerto Rican/Virgin Islands rum when the recipe calls for either a blend of other rums, or you have strong flavors (like cinnamon and allspice) in the recipe. The Seale rum can hold its own in that sort of application.

First off, the show is excellent. I have downloaded all the episodes and am slowly making my way through, listening to some of them multiple times to absorb all the great info. I appreciate the research and history of each rum along with the mixology tips and new and old cocktail recipes. You can come into the show as a newbie or a seasoned vet and get valuable tips.

Regarding the Denizen, I checked at Hi-Times and the Rum buyer said they don't normally carry it. They can special order the white ($20) or the reserve ($28) and have it in a few days. They will not stock it regularly until it gets more popular as shelf space is limited.

SchuTiki,

Thank you for listening, and for the kind words here and on iTunes - I really appreciate it. The reviews on iTunes really help others find the show.

I'm doing my best to make Denizen Merchant's Reserve a permanent fixture on shelves. Beverage Warehouse in Marina del Rey has been the most consistent source for me. And if I have to order a case, so be it!

Kevin

Kevin,

Just listened to #33 and your review of the much-maligned (probably for good reason) Stroh. I could actually hear you wincing when you tasted it neat :>)

I thought I'd point out one more recipe for anyone stuck with a bottle: Von Tiki, a Beachbum Berry original from Grog Log. It's one of the few drinks from that book I've yet to try since I haven't broken down and bought Stroh yet, but it looks to be slightly more palatable than the Five-0 Fireball. It made the Bum's cut to get into Remixed, so it must have some redeeming value.

Okole maluna!
