Follow up to The Spirt World

I was recently introduced to three aged rums that are well suited for sipping.

Rhum J.M. VSOP: It was kind of savory with a lot of bark tendencies.

Appleton Estate Rare Blend: A 12 year old (versus the 3 year old above) with a strong spicy fruit taste.

El Dorado 15 year old: It was like candied nuts!  Absolutely delicious. (Runs about $45, more than Appleton, but less than Rhum JM)

So grab your ice ball and pour some sipping rum into a glass, you’ll be surprised. You can also ask your favorite bartended, it leads to a great conversation.
