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.


#147

Yum

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

That’s my fault, Sorry.


#150

I’ll share the blame with you CB S.


#151

Just opened a bottle of Mount Gay Black Barrel Barbados rum

and very nice it is too.

My old man said its very smooth and will blow you head off got any coke :lou_facepalm_2:


#152

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.


#156

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.


#157

Bajan Estates Twin Cask XO tonight.


#158

That sounds interesting!


#159

Very smooth, a bit too sweet. Needs to be in a rum punch. Not bad for a M&S special


#160

So after hauling a colleague’s arse of out a particularly deep puddle of shite, he popped into my office this morning with a bottle of Ron Zacapa sistema 23 solera to say thank you.

classy move
