Picked up the Canne, Amber, and Vieux from Habitacion (Martinique Agricole) after a little tasting at Don the Beachcomber's International Tiki Marketplace.

Just back from the Miami Rum Fest. Picked up two bottles of Bayou Rum.



Tasty stuff. Young company, still working out distribution deals, not widely available yet but coming soon to a liquor/package store near you!



Ohh, sorry about that. Lets edit this and use a smaller picture....

I've been looking for that El Dorado 151 for years. Can't believe I finally stumbled on it.

I don't want to derail this rum thread but . . . regarding Carpano Antica, I keep it in the refrigerator for months with no spoilage. I also take extra care to spray a few puffs of inert gas wine preserver into it before resealing the bottle and I don't leave it sitting out long enough for it to reach room temperature. I do this for all my vermouths and sherries. Also, if Carpano Antica is too expensive or difficult to store try Punt e Mes as an alternative. Both are full bodied Italian vermouths a step above the usual Martini & Rossi. My favorite Manhattan uses a spicy rye whiskey and Punt e Mes.

Derailment to talk about other booze is ok in my book (as long as you still to the 'flavoursome' stuff, no vodka). I've posted scotch & vermouth so far!

I got the C.Antica specifically because is half bottle would fit in my fridge & I had it in bars before, good to know it doesn't spoil easily. Thanks TropicalDrinkBoy

By the way, does anyone have a source for the 1909 Bacardi? Guess it was a limited run

Problem is, I just don't use it all that much: I drink manhattans relatively sparingly and the price is such that most bottles of good rum (Appleton 12, El Dorado 12, LH151 to name a few) are cheaper than Carpano Antica around here.

But I do buy exactly your suggestion instead. I should give the inert gas a try, though.

On the Carpano Antica, I once asked the bar manager (Gertsen) at Drink in Boston what to do. (Drink's a well-known cocktail bar in Boston.). He suggested that you could split the bottle into the smaller Schweppes tonic bottles (10 oz) and then refrigerate the lot. The theory being was as you opened those in sequence the older bottles would have less oxygenation from not be opened / closed. I never gave that a go, but it could be worth trying.

Downside is you'll have people wondering what the hell went wrong with your tonic to make it turn colors...

Found a bottle of Depaz sitting on the shelf, had to pick it up. The only blue cane agricole I can get in TX until the Rhum Clement Canne Blue comes out.

Second best delivery of the week!

For the long time I have been frugal, only brought a few things on offer & drank some of my existing bottles dry waiting for this day to come...

I scanned the internet for the site that had all I wanted (i used the German website MA-WINE.com)
I carefully calculated the best way to be make the most of the price differences.
I factored in possible customs fees to ship from Germany to the UK.
I selected a few bottles that weren't available in the UK anymore





2x LH151, Pussers Blue Label, Plantation Overproof, Bacardi 151, 2x Appleton 12, LH80, El Dorado 5, Cockspur 12, 2x Brugal Blanco!

If you have got what you wanted & not paid the widely available price, I consider it a saving. Through ordering from abroad, this lil' haul was 30% / 150 / $250 off!

Let me know wnat you think of the Cockspur 12 once you've had a chance to sip it neat. It is a long-time favorite of mine.
