New Rum Review: Havana Club Seleccion de Maestros

March 21, 2015

Greetings, rummies!

With the re-opening of relations between the United States and Cuba, it seemed like a good time to begin adding reviews of Cuban rums to the site. So today, we begin with an offering from Havana Club: Seleccion de Maestros. This offering sits between their 7 year-old and their 15 year-old rums, but it bears no age statement. Coming in at ~$50, I have pretty high hopes, however! Read my review here and find out if this is one to look out for.

Cheers,
Josh

New Rum Review: Tiburón

March 17, 2015

Greetings!

Today we have an unusual treat from a Caribbean nation known more for its tourism than its rum, but this offering might just change all that. Tiburón is a a tasty blend of rums between four and eight years of age, and tastes great on its own or in cocktails. Read the full review here and let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Josh

New Rum Review: Siesta Key Toasted Coconut

March 11, 2015

Greetings, friends!

Today I’m back with a review of a unique flavored rum out of Sarasota, Florida: Siesta Key Toasted Coconut Rum. This rum is flavored simply by steeping shredded toasted coconut in rum that was made in their pot still. The resulting spirit is bursting with coconut flavor, but tastes nothing like any other coconut rum we’ve reviewed. Read the full review here and you’ll see what I mean.

Cheers,
Josh

DIY Pineapple Rum

March 4, 2015

Hey folks,

While I am still woefully behind on rum reviews, I wanted to take a moment to share something I have been having a lot of fun with lately: pineapple rum. If you follow me on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) then you may have noticed me making this a few times already. I was originally inspired to make the infusion after tasting Plantation Rum’s Stiggin’s Fancy, and because that product is not readily available, I thought I’d document my process for you. Check out the recipe here and let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Josh

New Rum Review: Samaroli Caribbean 2003

January 8, 2015

Greetings, folks!

I trust you all had a wonderful holiday. Given my slow pace of posts during the holiday season, I figured I should begin the new year with a review of a special rum. This time it’s the Samaroli Caribbean 2003–a fine example of pure Caribbean rum by way of Scotland. Read the review here.

Cheers,
Josh

New Rum Review: Dos Maderas 5+3

December 16, 2014

Greetings!

Today I’m back with another rum that’s finished in Sherry casks: the Dos Maderas 5+3. These are the folks that import Caribbean rum and age it again in Jerez, Spain. As you may recall, I wasn’t a big fan of the 5+5 (too much Sherry, not enough rum) so perhaps a little less time in the Sherry cask will be more suitable. Find out by reading the review here.

Cheers,
Josh

New Rum Review: Maggie’s Farm

December 11, 2014

Hey there folks,

I’m back today with tasting notes on four rums from a new craft rum brand made in Pittsburgh called Maggie’s Farm. These are all made from turbinado sugar, and are surprisingly tasty. Take a look here and read about them, won’t you?

Cheers,
Josh
