Wearing one of my favorite pairs of cuff links today. This pair is red enamel on sterling with British hallmarks. The other sides are English Three Pence coins from 1943. These were made before Jamaica gained its independence in 1962.
Anything from the seller "linda*s***stuff". How the heck this seller has 364,926 feedback on Ebay is amazing. Take for instance this listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/PAUL-STUART-Beige-Striped-Long-Sleeve-Collared-Blazer-Sz-M-/261252198434?pt=US_CSA_MC_Blazers_Sport_Coats&hash=item3cd3d83022 I guess the seller doesn't have an iron, lol. Descriptions such as: •Collar: Fold down pointed, notched collar and lapel •Sleeve Type: Long Sleeves •Neckline: V-neck •Print or...
#99 (number correlates to my personal inventory #): Berry Bros. Rudd Guadelope 12 year old rum. This rum, along with other aged rums from BBR originating in Panama, Grenada, St. Lucia, Barbados & Fiji, recently became available wholesale in Delaware through a small distributor. I purchased one bottle of each to taste and share with customers. The first one I opened was the BBR Guadelope 12 year old rum. This is a rhum agricole product from this French Island. It has a...
I finally was able to order some of the very hard to find English Harbour 25 year old, as well as a bunch of aged rums from English wine merchant Berry Bros & Rudd. These should be delivered to me within a week. I'll post tasting notes on them when they arrive.
#94 - Clement V.S.O.P. Rhum Vieux Agricole, Martinique. Nice notes of lemon rind and cocoa bean. I've heard nice things about this and am glad it is finally available in Delaware at $35.99US retail. Not the most complex of the other rhums I've had from Martinique, it is still very enjoyable. Perhaps the white, not gold, base rum is the difference for me in liking, not loving, this offering.
Just booked an August, 2011 trip to Jamaica. Will be bringing back some Appleton Master's Blend Legacy and Edwin Charley The Foundation, both of which don't get exported.
Went rum shopping this morning and picked up bottles #91 - #93 for my Hoard. They are as follows: #91 - Smith & Cross, London "Traditional Jamaica Rum, Pure Pot Still, Plummer & Wedderburn - Navy Strength (57%). Too strong for me as a sipping rum. Nice aromatics of tropical fruits and spices, but I can't handle the burn of this. At $29.99US for 750ml, a little pricey for mixing. #92 - J.M V.S.O.P. Rhum Vieux Agricole, Martinique AOC - Absolutely beautiful. Just the...
See my post #106. Plantation Grand Reserve 5 year. $28US for 1.75L. Elegant enough for sipping, but enough sweetness for mixing.
Here are tasting notes on rums #88 - 90 in my collection: #88 - Pirates Choice Molasses Reef Rum, Cristal Clear Spirits, Charleston, SC. Like chewing on a vanilla bean. Interesting, but not complex or tropical rum like. A good QPR at $17US though. #89 - Serralles "Don Q - Anejo" Puerto Rico rum. Pretty simple gold rum. A bit dissapointed, as I'm hearing great things about Don Q Gran Anejo. At $15US, will us for mixing. #90 - Screech "Famous Le Celebre" Rum/Rhum,...
Screech it is. New rum #1 Pirates Choice Molasses Reef Rum, Cristal Clear Spirits, Charleston, SC. Like chewing on a vanilla bean. Interesting, but not complex or tropical rum like. A good QPR at $17US though.
