I just bought some El Ron Prohibido to give to a friend as a birthday gift. I've never tried it, so hopefully he'll decide to open it at his party this weekend

My town finally got a BevMo. The whiskey section is nice but the rum section is pretty disappointing!

I just bought the Prohibido, too and almost passed it up because of the 'habanero' on the label. I'm not a huge fan of the Solera style rums, and I feel that this one is low on the list. I'm not even sure how I would mix it, because it made a horrible daiquiri. Of course, every time I don't like a rum and I let it sit on the shelf for a bit, it becomes a bit more appealing. Also, the cork looked a little off and I feel it will break in two before I'm done with the bottle. Good presentation on the label, though.

Papa’s Pilar dark. Very nice nose, reminded me of the now unavailable Pyrat Pistol. A bit sweet on the tongue with a nice lingering finish. Not a bad sipper-I think it would get lost in most tiki drinks. Bout 33/34 bucks at Hi-Times.
Cheers

This is from a micro-distillery in Pasadena called Stark Spirits.



Not bad, really. Has a smooth sweetness, with a hint of that vegetal pungency you get from an agricole.

Rhum Barbancourt 5-Star (aged 8 years)



A few folks here already know I'm gonna be making the 1862 Rhum Punch from Kern's recipe at the Mai-Kai as posted on Hurricane Hayward's site. The party's at my pad!
