New Rum Review: The Real McCoy 3-Year

July 14, 2014

Aloha folks!

After a bit of time back in Hawaii, I return to you rested and rejuvenated, so let’s get back to the rum reviews! Today we further explore The Real McCoy rum line with a look at their 3-Year white rum. Distilled on Barbados by Richard Seale, this is a fine expression of the distiller’s art. Read the review here.

Mahalo for reading as always,
Josh

New Rum Review: Facundo Exquisito

July 1, 2014

Greetings!

Today I’m back with another luxury rum review for you. This time it’s the Exquisito expression in Bacardi’s new line of Facundo rums. I wasn’t too impressed with the Eximo, but perhaps this one would be better? It better be to justify the $100 price tag on this 40% spirit. Check out the review here.

Cheers,
Josh

New Rum Review: Diplomatico Ambassador

June 24, 2014

Aloha!

Today I’m back with another review of a luxury rum: Diplomatico Ambassador. This rum comes in box fit for a king, but what about the liquid inside? With packaging like this and an impossibly steep price tag, it’s got to be amazing, right? Not so fast. There’s more (or less) to this beautiful presentation than one might imagine. Read the review here.

Mahalo for reading as always,

New Rum Review: Facundo Eximo

June 17, 2014

Aloha kakou,

Today we return with a review of another highly anticipated rum: Facundo Eximo. This is the 10-year expression within Bacardi’s new line of super premium rums. The Facundo line is not yet available on the West Coast, but after you read my review, you may not be terribly concerned about that. Read the review here.

Mahalo as always for visiting,
Josh

New Rum Review: Owney’s Original

June 5, 2014

Aloha!

I met a lot of really great people at this year’s Miami Rum Festival, one of whom was Bridget Firtle. Bridget was there promoting a product she makes in Brooklyn called Owney’s Original Rum. Now, if you’re like me, you might be a bit trepidatious about trying a domestic white rum, but you needn’t worry in this case–it’s actually quite delicious. Read the review here.

Mahalo for reading as always!

New Rum Review: Tanduay 1854

May 25, 2014

Aloha folks,

Today I return with a review of a rum you won’t find for sale here in the U.S.–it’s Tanduay 1854. This 15-Year rum from the Philippines is a duty-free staple and a product that nearly delivers on the promise of a luxurious sipping rum from the P.I. Take a look here and see what I mean.

Cheers,
Josh

New Rum Review: R.L. Seale’s 10-Year

May 19, 2014

Aloha kakou,

Today I’m back with another rum from Barbados. This time it’s R.L. Seale’s 10-Year Finest Barbados Rum, which is made by Richard Seale at the Foursquare Distillery. It’s hard not to be somewhat familiar with this rum. If you haven’t yet tasted it, you have probably seen the oddly shaped bottle on the shelf and wondered what the contents tasted like. Well wonder no more friend, for my complete review awaits you here.

Cheers,
Josh
