The Gunpowder Proof was at Binny’s Beverage Depot— haven’t seen it anywhere else. The prince was about $35. No different than the regular nectar

Hmmm, that looks interesting. Any notes on availability and price?

Although at 54.5% its' slightly below actual gunpowder proof, it's a fine rum and fairly priced at $35 ish. It's pretty widely available, and I use it frequently in a Jet Pilot or Mai Tai.

An interesting interview with Richard Seale of FourSquare Rum.
Agree or disagree, he has a unique outlook.
Poppycock

So...

I paid a visit to the local rum distillery. Licores Veracruz is the distillery that produces Mocambo rums, from locally grown cane, in nearby Córdoba. Definitely worth the trip!! They produce some amazing rums, but also tequilas, mezcals, even vodka ( :shock: ), and a variety of liqueurs and even a fortified wine, a generoso in the Jeréz style. It's a family business that now spans 5 generations, and is an insanely high quality product, especially given the price. Here are a few pics...

I'm by no means an excellent rum taster, but being from Colombia originally I did track down some of their Dictador rums.

Dictador 20 was expensive ($100 at one of those wine/liquor superstores in Florida) but decent. Smooth, caramely, lots of coffee (probably to be expected, being from Colombia and all.) I was with a whole group of family from Colombia, so I figured it was worth the splurge to get them a hard-to-find rum from there.

It wasn't my favorite sipping rum ever, but it did go down easy.

Here's a review from the internet:

(no relation to me, just now Googled it.)

I’ve got some Dictador 20 here. It’s like a smooth, chocalatey cake in a bottle. Good stuff

I went digging through the back of the cabinets where we squirrel away extra bottles of rum after shopping trips.

I think I might have a problem.

With hoarding.

On the bright side I found some bottles of extinct or unobtainable rums I enjoy.... now I need to find some old recipes that use Orinoco rum.

Oh and the reason I was digging around was to make room for a bottle of this. The blend sounded interesting: 45% Panama 12-year rum, 36% Dominican 12-year rum, 10% Boston 8-year rum (Bully Boy’s own distillate), 8.1% Trinidad 12-year rum and a mere .9% Jamaican 12-year rum.

I decided to just leave it on top of the bar and open it.
