We went to the release party for this rum at the Royal Hawaiian (Laguna Beach, California) a couple of months ago. They introduced a half dzn. or so drinks using this rum-all were delicious. As you can guess this rum is not for sipping. I posted one of their drinks in the Tiki Drinks thread .

I was near Hi Times ( Costa Mesa, California ) so I stopped by to pick up a bottle of St. Vincent orgeat.
I found the Tahoe Moonshine Rum in the clearance bin so I grabbed a couple of small jugs. It has a moderate alcohol nose and I tried a small sip. Not a real strong rum taste but I like this rum. Btw, I was surprised to see Fugu Horchata vodka on the shelves. The Fugu H V is essential in a Paralyzing Pufferfish as served at the Bali Hai in San Diego. I grabbed several bottles as I have heard that It might be discontinued.










Paralyling Pufferfish

1 1/4 oz Fugu Horchata Vodka
1 1/4 oz Ballast Point 3 Sheets Barrel aged Rum
1/2 oz Cruzan aged 151 Rum
1/2 oz PassionFruit Syrup
Juice of 2 lime wedges
1 1`/2 oz Pineapple juice


Garnish; Pineapple-Cherry

Great find. I found one bottle in OKC a couple years ago.

A local liquor store has a pretty good selection of Plantation rums, and I've finally picked up a bottle of 3 Star.

Needed a new sipping rum that could fit in a desk drawer, so I settled on Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva. A bit more than I wanted to spend, but I heard good thing and the size fit the bill.

One of my coworkers went to the Philippines to see family recently and she brought me back a bottle of the elusive Asian market-only Tanduay 5-year (this stuff costs a measly $3 in it's home market!) and a little taster of "Lambanog", the Philippino answer to the coconut-flower derived "arracks" you see in other countries in the area.

That rye is great stuff, PalmTreePat. Do you ever combine it with rum in a variation on an Old Fashioned? I think it goes great with various runs, but Demerara and golden agricoles particularly.

It is really great with Demerara. My favorite combo for an OF when I'm feeling fancy is a 3:1 blend of the rye to Hamilton/Lemon Hart 151, which also happens to be the basis of the Poipu Beach Boogie Board, a drink you should definitely try ASAP if you haven't already.

1 1/2 oz rye whiskey
1/2 oz Demerara 151
1/4 oz maraschino
1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz lemon
1/2 oz guava juice
3/4 oz grenadine
1 dash Angostura bitters

Blend 3 seconds w/ crushed ice.

Hey thanks man! Malaho. I'll definitely give that a try. I always have to sub OFTD for the LH 151 (we can't get it in the UK) but I reckon it would sit great with the Rittenhouse.

I have a variation on an OF which is : 2 oz rye, 1.25 JM Gold rhum, 1/2 oz Bonal (skip this if you want but I think it adds a little class) or other fairly dry aparetif like cynar etc; Scant dash each of chocolate and lemon bitters; Barspoon of simple syrup; Small lime peel slice for garnish, squeeze the juice in to taste. I find that sits almost exactly at the crossroads between an OF and a restrained 'ti punch.


Is that boogie board recipe from a book, or a bar?

Most looking forward to trying this in place of Wray & Nephew - any recommendations for a recipe that calls for unaged overproof pot still run?



Larry, that looks amazing. I've not been fortunate enough to try any of the Velier stuff yet.

This is my favorite application for Wray:

At 151, you might wanna cut it to 1.25 oz rum or up the other ratios so you don't die.




Hey Mike! Thanks for the recommendation. I mean to do a little review of this rum - initially i struggled to get it to sit with anything because it's so fiercely flavourful, it totally dominates most drinks if you substitute it wholesale for something else. As you alluded, it needs dialling back compared to regular Wray.

I've been doing two things with this: swapping just a quarter ounce of it for OFTD (my go-to multipurpose overproof as I can't get LH 151) in drinks like the Navy Grog, Zombie, and most recently the Black Magic - it just adds some amazing head-enveloping flavour. Secondly, I've been pouring a half oz into a glass, adding a few teaspoons of chilled water until it's drinkable, and having it neat. It's a very high quality spirit so it isn't rough at all, once you dilute down the heat it's a real pleasure. Last thing at night only though or there's no tasting anything else..

I want to say it's from Three Dots & A Dash in Chicago, Larry, but I just copied that recipe off of one of my kitchen note cards so I'm not sure.
