I knew the obscure french rums are not avaible there but something as common as those are not even avaible in miami? I am surprised

The single barrels are around, but not that common. The 25 is nowhere.

The old version of the Ron Centenario XX also came in a leather pouch. Very sweet but still pretty good.

How's the regular Diplomatico reserva, not the Exclusiva? The regular is only $16 but I'd have to go hunting to find the Exclusiva. Crappy rum selection here.

For sipping neat, the Exclusiva was an immediate favorite, the Reserva seems a bit dull and dry by comparison, but I've only had it a few days and haven't delved in properly. For now, I prefer the Plantation Barbados 5 year at that price point.

Finally got to open my bottle of Mount Gay Extra Old... was good on the rocks and also made for great Cuba Libre.

So lately I've been on a pina colada binge, using the mixer rums and deciding if I can detect a difference. After realizing that the difference is pretty well drowned out by the syrupy coconut concoction, I decided that's how I'll kill off the detestable Dos Madeiras 5 + 3.

Smart man. Also, saves me from having to ever try the 5 + 3.

Actually, i discovered last night that Bacardi Select makes a better PC than Dos Madeiras. What. are. the. odds.

So that's now fruitcake and pina coladas. Guess it's time to get the 55-gallon drum.

What blender do you use? Been thinking of replacing mine. It does not do that well with ice. Been eying Ninja's but I hate that there plastic.

KitchenAid, 5-speed. I don't remember when or how we got it, I just use the stupid thing. I had a stick blender for my protein shakes but the Mrs. used it for soap one day and has yet to replace it.

Picked up a bottle of Depaz Blue Cane rhum agricole today. It's excellent. Reminds me of some sotols I've tried, has that same earthiness but with a different flavor profile. More tropical maybe, not good with the vocabulary for this sort of thing. The difference between the sugar cane base and the molasses base of rum is really interesting.

Fernandes dark rum from Trinidad. Simply amazing!

Okay, I now have a bottle of that in the car. I'd been wanting to try an Agricole but hadn't been ready to pull the trigger. Given the work I have lined up this weekend, should be a decent time to give it a try.
