Good recent purchases hang10tiki!

Mine:


I have been making my own falernum recently - the problem is it doesn't last long & can be quite variable batch to batch. John Taylors is long life!

Pussers 15 & El Dorado 12 are excellent.

I've tried El Dorado 8 & Clement VSOP previously & been impressed.

i bought some Maui dark rum on Kauai recently. Made some excellent "Planters Punch” and “Lapu Lapu”s” but a sipper it’s not!
Cheers
Btw, I don’t foresee buying any here in Cali unless it’s at a sale price.There are too many good “mixers” available in the Maui dark price range.
Cheers

Hopefully that doesn't mean ABC is going to stop carrying it. You put a 'Ti Punch bug in my ear last night and I put a good dent in my Royal Ambre bottle revisiting that cocktail several times.

This has me puzzled. While looking for “regular” Kahl’ua among the myriad flavored Kahl’uas on the market shelf I thought that I’d finally found it. It looked like the regular stuff at first til I noticed that it was marked “rum and coffee Liqueur” just below the big letters Kahl’ua.
Intrigued, I bought it anyway to try in my Mexican Coffees this evening.I compared the bottle to some I’d bought years ago in Baja.
The Baja label simlpy identifies the contents as “ liicor de cafe (kahl’ua)” Did something change during the past 2 years while I was enjoying the no longer available Trader Vic’s Kona coffee liquor?
Mahalo
Btw, The rum/Kalh’ua has a very pleasant “nose”-I’m anxious to give it a try.

I have made many “Mexican offee’s” with rum/Kahlua and I think the “new stuff is superior. The original was much too sweet for my taste. I have only found the “new stuff” at the several supermrkt’s that I frequent. Hmmm.

Zaya Rum Vap box - unfortunately no good pics of it online, but got 2 glasses with a standard bottle for the same price. Sharing at work!

Bought some “Kirk and Sweeney” at Hi-Times. Read a few reviews and Trayce at Hi-Tims thought I would enjoy it after I told him of my personal favorites. Gonna try a sip soon!
Cheers
Btw, first thing that grabs my eye when browsing the rum section is the bottle. I then read reviews and talk to others before I decide to buy. Got many good ones and also some I’ll never touch again.

Editing this post four days later;

This rum has a fairly strong alcohol nose and a mildly pronounced “bite”right outta the bottle. Not as sweet as most of the reveiws I read indicated. I let it breathe a few minutes and found it more to my liking. i added one small ice cube and I now have four rums that I like to “sip” . Appleton 21, the double Z’s, Zaya and Zacapa, and Kirk and Sweeney. Not a bad price at Hi-Times (under 30 bucks).

Finally got ahold of a bottle of Smith & Cross. My only problem is that my bar at home is at full vacancy, and that I'm unsure of the "best" way to use it other than being a knockout star in a Mai Tai. I'd love some suggestions.
