Kevin, very nice job with this episode. The Death & Co. book is amazing - I pre-ordered it and when it finally arrived posted a message about it here on TC. Truly some great tastes and craftsmanship in that tome.

I found one of the top bars in my part of the country had ordered it about the same time I did, and they had it squirrelled away under the bar with just the bottom edge showing. I asked and found that some of their bartenders were reading it during quiet times. One of the big draws of the book for me was the magnitude of the bartenders reputations at Death & Co. and the similar respect for the quality of their recipes.

Cheers!

Thanks for the kind words @AceExplorer and @mmaurice (again!).

I can only imagine the quality of the actual Death & Co. bar based on the thoughtfulness that went into their book. It must be amazing and amazingly busy.

As always, I love the show and I'm so grateful you do it.

I love revisiting episodes as my rum collection expands. My wife just picked up a bottle of Smith & Cross for me this weekend (a difficult job within Virginia), so I just had to relisten to that eppie.

My love affair with Smith & Cross continues, though I am using it at a slower pace these days as so many other interesting rums keep showing up in my shopping cart.

Hi, Kevin. I started listening to 5 Minutes of Rum last year, after Tiki Oasis. I really enjoy it! My husband thinks you sound like Barack Obama I never noticed it but now I can hear it just a bit.

That's funny - I think any resemblance starts and ends with the fact that we both say "uhh" a lot.

Thanks for listening!

Kevin,

I thought I'd contribute a few more recipes relating to the last couple episodes ...

Here's another Jungle Bird that features Angostura 7 and Martin Cate's molasses syrup:

Good to see you've discovered Jasper's Mix. Great stuff. Here's Jasper's Witch Doctor, plus some additional tips from Stephen Remsberg on how he likes to make the mix ...

Okole maluna!

I just ran across an interesting recipe that employs two of those lesser-used rums on the shelf (Cruzan Black Strap and Wray and Nephew Overproof). It's from one of the competitors in tonight's Iron TikiTender contest ...

More variations! Thanks Jim. I'm intrigued by the possibilities of the molasses syrup. I guess I need another bottle of sweetener in my bar fridge.

Once I knock out my TIki Oasis recipes I'm going to need to do another round of Jungle Bird and check out the Co-pilot. I'm sure I'll get to the Witch Doctor sooner than that. In fact, I still have some Jasper's Secret Mix standing by...

Mahalo,

kevin

Looks like I'm a show behind on this thread (in terms of shamelessly plugging my own show). As alluded to in @Hurricane Hayward's post above, episode 43 is available and features Appleton Reserve (new bottle alert), the Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails book (a brief mention), Jasper's Secret Mix, and 2 rum punches.
