While in Puerto Rico a couple weeks ago, I picked up a few bottles of Bacardi rum. Bacardi Reserve is so-so, but infinitely better than regular old Bacardi. Now, Bacardi 8 is very special. I didn't even know this eight year old stuff existed. It's very nice. On ice, it tastes like a very good rum. The presentation is not bad at all. After a couple seconds in the gullet, the sugarcane comes out into your throat (and brain I guess). With no ice, it is almost like drinking a nice cognac. It's no Goslings, but recommended anyway. Now while on the subject of my old favorite Goslings, it appears there is a Goslings "Old Rum" which is very rare. I need to find some of this material for my research. Looks like it sells for about $50 a bottle, and in some circles is considered to be the finest rum there is.
That is all.
