I discovered the El Dorado 15 a few months ago and there's no turning back. The 12 by itself with an ice cube also does the trick for a whole lot cheaper.

Hang10tiki, I have both them - good rhum/rums!

Stocking up on dark rum:

I just bought Smith & Cross and Rhum Barbancourt 5 star (the 8 year).


I recognized the names from this forum. I've been searching non-stop for Lemonhart in NJ but have no success. I almost bought the el Dorado. I'm also looking to add the Clement to my collection but haven't spotted it yet. I can find a lot online but I don't want to pay for shipping.

A visit to the local LCBO store today resulted in a happy surprise. They've never had this in the 14 years I've lived here so there was no chance I was leaving without one. I might even go back for another just in case it's a one time thing.

Boom! Exciting purchases after a trip to London (well for me anyway):



The Coco Lopez & Monin Orgeat are restocks, both are good.

Based Sunny&Rummy's recommendation (& on my enjoyment of 50:50 Saint James Amber / Appleton 12 from the 'best martinque rum' thread) I got some Saint James Rhum Vieux - I just tried some neat, it tastes great!

I've wanted some Trader Vics Mai Tai glasses for ages

Latest rum purchase: Received two bottles of Cana Brava 3 year today. Gonna spend some time with Beachbum's new book this weekend.





Cana Brava is pretty good, and priced better than 5 islands for a mixing / daquiri rum

W & N overproof IS that good. I'd second that recommendation. It's definitely assertive though.

We stopped in at a local Thai Town supermarket for some sesame oil, and decided to peruse the liquor section, which was inconveniently located behind a collision of shopping carts, various cases of unboxed product, step stools and such... when I noticed, crammed into the corner on the bottom shelf, a bottle of Lemonhart 80. For 20 bucks.

Needless to say, we're ecstatic!

I love the 21 year El Dorado,
but at 95 bucks at Hi Time, I settle for the 15,
I would only use the 12 for mixing.
but I'm a rum snob.

My latest purchase was 2 bottles of goslings 151. They were being discontinued from a local grocery store for 17$. I should have bought more I think.
