Rum

Post by Zedman05 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 11:21 pm

I picked this stand up when in Cuba a couple years ago. Looks really cool, but it is a bit too tipsy to leave around with kids in the house.

My favorite rum:

I have a hand carved ornate version of that from a Honduran Market when I was making my first visit to the area. Really, really cool piece.

Pick up in Cuba.
Apparently this stuff is hard to find lately. Not expensive, but very good !Image

To all the rum heads — what are your thoughts on Diplomatico?

Maybe it's like becoming one with the cigar. You lose yourself in it; everything fades away: your worries, your problems, your thoughts. They fade into the smoke, and the cigar and you are at peace. - Raul Julia

Its ok. Only had the one, so I cant give a complete recommendation, but worth a try. Have had worse, especially for the money.

A few friends used to go gaga over the stuff. I like it, I don't love it. I enjoy the cheap white version available at Trader Joes from time to time also. The dark rum version is slightly syrupy and definitely sweet. It makes Zaya seem savory.

I would be remiss if I did not mention Plantation 5yr on this thread. I have been enjoying it with some ice (yes I am a horrible person) for about the last 2 years. A nice sipping and cigar rum that can be had for under $30.

Now I know people only tend to associate my name with The Kraken, and I will still go to bat for it mixed with ginger ale or coke, but this Plantation is truly some nice stuff.
