The town is a hole Nottarf but the collection of beach guys and bungalow complexes in Otres village & Otres 2 are heaven.

Not seen that type of pizza but there were lots of Happy Pizza places in Siem apparently.

All we can smell on the beach are herbs

Who needs rum?

Something for you rumboys to read


#139

Ahem… .rumwoman here, maybe even some more around. Or maybe not.

Sorry @intiniki

My post wasn’t meant to exclude women, it was a homophobic post where “rumboys” sounded like “bumboys”.


#141

Thanks for the clarity. I think.


#142

I may be a lot of things but I’m not a misogynist! I love women. It’s just the gays I’m less keen on. And blacks.


#143

Tickets now on sale!

We should definitely form an attack squadron.


#144

Up for this. I also want the golden tot tokens(lot’s of them).

Quorhum 30 turned up yesterday. It’s very drinkable. Will bring a hip flask with me to the Fulham game for anyone that wants to try it.


#145

May head to Rumfest next year.

Birthday rum. Mrs G is a keeper.

i have been conspicuously absent from this thread, mainly because I needed a rum sabbatical. Turns out you can have too much of a good thing.

Back on it in feb

On the plantation xo 20 th anniversary. Might be a bit too sugary for my taste


#153

El Dorado 12 yr old for me this evening. SOS will approve.


#154

Try La Hechicera Solera 21(m&s have it).

I normally like the smooth demerara rums. This one isn’t, but it’s dragging me back again and again. Prunes, expresso and tobacco flavours. Very nice and about £35-40

I am waiting on a delivery of a Brugal 1888 and a Matusalem 23 gran reserva which reads like nectar from the gods ,going on this review.

Nose: Fresh honey and golden syrup. Crunchy almonds. Cedar wood.

Palate: Creamy and rich, with plenty of fruit joining the sweet, sugary notes.

Finish: Spiced and lasting on the finish. Overall: One to savour and enjoy neat.

If it can deliver this, i’m in heaven at under £50 a bottle.


#155

Approve is an understatement. I don’t think there’s another bottle at the same price that compares. £33 a bottle and it’s smooth, rich and leaves an almost peat whisky clean aftertaste.

If anything proves we are an intelligent species, it’s El Dorado rum.

Me and the old man nearly had a catastrophe the other day.

The maid was sent shopping for Tanduay rum and came back empty handed “ non availble” she says,

The driver was then despatched to the next city and 5 botttles duly arrived.

Dry throats averted.
