  1. Sign me up for one of each...ok...ok make that 2 but then come to think about it 3 would be nice too!!! I'll drink it nomatter what you call it.......if it is a little off I'll put fruit-juice in it. If it is way off I'll put cola in it!! enjoy cj
  2. Nice pictures Jason...your making me thirsty I might need to pour a glass........But if I wait another 6 orso minutes at least it will be past noon!! enjoy
  3. I'm back on-line. The move from London to Seattle did have its flaws but all and all I'm back home!! My rum seem to all made it My cigars have all made it and now to the business of getting settled-in. I will be lurking most of the time but posting will be little. Researching and finding the out-of-the-way rums have also been put on the backburners for a few more months. I guess I'll just have to start drinking what I have :wow: anyhow just wanted to let the masses know enjoy cj
  4. well well well my friend did come through .........with 3 bottles. 1 HC15 and a bottle of Varadero but the real treat was the bottle of Santiago de Cuba extra anejo annv. It came in a charcoal black bottle, a slight curved indentation on the front and back near the base, large gold dust looking bulb top and of-course everything is wrote in spanish so I have NO IDEA what it reads across the front an back???hahaha hey I have a ??on this aniversario bottle......I'm assuming it is the annv.45 why is the number 48 wrote in black with the number 5 wrote in red and dropped down 1/2 a line and placed half covering the 8? Is there meaning in the number 485 or is it in the numbber 48 I guess I'm just rambling on.......gotta get ready the movers come tomorrow so I'll check in after the move...6-8 weeks for household good to be shipped. That is a long time to be offline take care all. cj
  5. not sure! but if you had 2 bottles I would enjoy atleast one of them. Maybe look and hold the other for about 5 or so yrs. I have a bottle or two I'm in no hurry to open but I still plan on drinking them someday. Save it for a special occasion......yes I think Clement 15yr should be saved for the special occasions but enjoy one of them!! Save the other for when I visit... when you ask about consuming these carefully do you mean not spilling?? I always tell my kids use 2 hands when in the livingroom !! cj
  6. sounds like they are keeping the best of the bunch......Grand Reserva. But it is a shame what a mess this embargo cramp as done. But lets not get to talking about that......... Yes if you have the bottle in hand it is easy to tell which is which but when buying on-line it can be confusing and misleading. I'm sure it is done on purpose. oh well buyer-be-ware. cj
  7. gotta get me one of those pusser's rum ceramic decanters!! cj :wow:
  8. hey Vern how's it going? Yes it is true one can sip rum and nor does he need to always use it as a mixer.....A matter of fact I think neat is best. Hey does that Sancha Panza does he like other cigars like maybe Bolivars that are oh lets say about 5 1/8 by 42 in size?? so what has you friend SP or BPT shared with you?? and welcome here cj
  9. welcome here Puro. I see that you in the WA area although kinda on the border uhh? Am I right? I myself am moving back to WA (close to Puyallup) at the end of the month. WA is not the best place to find rum in and I'm not sure about OR. I have a site for WA where you can see what is available and at what stores but mail order might be best. http://www.liq.wa.gov/services/brandpicklist.asp go into a search for rum here something might be avail close to home!! hope it works! So did I hear that you like a good stick with a good rum.....they seem to go hand in hand for me, anyhow glad to see you here cj
  10. If you have that bottle that you just do not want to open.....how best do you store it for long term? Or until that special occasion pops-up that desires the best that life can offer? and after you have opened and sampled that rum how long can you keep it? occasionally having a glass how would you then store it? drink it before it goes bad or loses its touch but how long is that? questions, questions questions cj
  11. I'll have him ask about La Famosa Destilleria Boycoy. If I understand you right they might not be in production anymore right? And if they are it will no doubt be a small & quiet distillery. And that they might have moved to Puertor Rico. Are you think that they fled Cuba back when others did? with words like "Treasuse Island" and sayings like "you might find a old bottle in a treasure chest" I really feel like we are on a treasure hunt!!! hahaha would La Isla del Tesoro be the name of the rum not the maker? and what about does that say in english anyone?(treasure island) cj
  12. Boy I'm going broke. I think it's time to just look at the differant rums and slow down again on the buying. Between the rum, the cabinet size humidor I have being made and then the cigars I'm out of money and will be living on the streets soon. I still have the rum that my friend might bring back from Cuba for me. Sad to say but I hope he doesn't bring back too many; my wife would $hit if she saw the money I have been spending. Anyhow I must start getting ready for my move back to the states. The movers come on the 11 of March but I still have 2 trip before then. One to the states to register the kids for school and then a holiday over in Ireland. busy busy busy. It might even be hard to find the time to have a good glass of rum and a cigar. cj
  13. The appleton 21 I really like. I think most people do though. Like BPC Looking fwd to your comments on the Diplimatico Res. As my wife would say "sure is a pretty bottle". Tell us how it is and if it is one to pursue. That page where the Sea Wynde was found.....did you take a look at that British Royal Navy Imperial Rum...!$$!...could anyone afford something like that?? I couldn't even afford that empty bottle! hahaha go back and get the Sea Wynde too, one can never have to much rum. And what is your weekly Saterday night rum event?? cheers Cj
  14. Is that Gran Reserva the 15yr blend?? I have a bottle of that.... but it is only 700ml and 40% alc./vol. (80 proof) $10 though you can not go wrong.......there isn't any bottle of rum here in the UK where I can get 750ml for 10 bucks!! Not even the stuff for mixing!! I'm going to have to start a tasting notebook (like I do for my cigars). The bottle I have isn't open, I can not remember what it was like the last time I had it and the bottle is to dark to tell the color of this rum. Hey BPC are you going to Cuba this next week? cj
