Embarrassed to admit I have not tried these yet. I have been enjoying other local offerings. Both Privateer and Bully Boy are making rums that are great for sipping neat or mixing into a cocktail. Next time I find a bottle of Old Ipswich on the shelf I will certainly pick it up.

New label or old label on the Screech?

I believe it is the new label. We also picked up 3 bottles of the old-label Lemon Hart just in time for mai tai season 8)

Yep, you leave out just a minute to pour yourself a glass of champagne at midnight when the ball drops on New Year's Eve.

That is cool! Let us know what you think if you try any of them.

Well the honey does taste like honey.

The spiced is really kind of all vanilla.

Vanilla is technically a spice. See also: Sailor Jerry. :?

Well, one of my staff had to drop of a kid at college in New Brunswick and asked if I needed anything from North o' the Border... so at work today I got some Lemon Hart 80 and some bonus Lamb's Navy Rum.

Hope they go visit the kid a lot 8)

The 20 anos.

This stuff is pretty good! I love it, even if the finish is a little warm. Can't get it in VA/MD/DC area AFIK - I got this in TX, and I've seen it in FL too. BTW: It was $50!

Any opinions on Mount Gay 1703 Old Cask Selection Rum at $99? That seems to be MSRP.

New Hampshire is hawking that down the street from my house. I am used to paying $40 for the Extra Old so this is a big price jump from an already fine rum.

Kaniche Reserve and Kaniche XO are two new to our area rums. The XO is outstanding and not a bad price at $30, but the Reserve is excellent and only $17. The Reserve is one of the best under $20 rums I've ever had.

(thanks go to TikiGAP for breaking these out, and others, from his collection for a nice night of rum sipping)

Wow! Great news, Jeff! Can't wait to try that.

I still have a couple of bottles of regular old Kaniche (Leisure Master turned me on to this great bargain priced Martinique rum) in the bomb shelter. I haven't seen it around town for a while, so I am relieved that they are still producing.

I am a big fan of this brand.

That is some seriously over priced rum.

I'm wondering if this is just the regular Kraken, without the coloring?

Wandered through the duty free on the way home yesterday -- you have to, the only exit from the security screening goes into the duty free store 8) -- as usual they had the forbidden fruit right by the entrance.

Image

Just past that was a large Guatemala display with Zacapa featured prominently... and at a higher price than we pay here at home!

But by that was Botran Reserva 15 años and Botran Solera 1893 18 años on sale. $20 and $28 respectively for a liter bottle so that's basically 25% free compared to prices in the U.S.
