Demon Rum!

A few years ago I attended a conference in Puerto Rico. On the way home I stopped in the duty-free who and, on the advice of a colleague, bought some Bacardi 8-year-old "Ron Reserva Superior." Yow! I had never paid much attention to rum since I was in college, but straight up in a snifter, it was like cognac, but with this wonderful sweet quality!

When I ran low on the Bacardi, I stopped by my local liquor store, which is tiny but carries great stuff. I asked for a recommendation, and the owner directed me to Zaba, a 12-year-old "grand reserva" rum from Guatemala. OMG! This stuff is the Nectar of the Gods! Check it out here.

Intersesting stuff!

I'll have to keep an eye out for it the next time I'm over at the liquor/wine/beer store to see if they stock it.

I'm in! I agree, some rums are meant to be enjoyed without benefit of mixers.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???
