It never gets old.....


I on the other hand........
Hey Paul,
I had a Rum-Tasting this night with absolut beginners: I startet it with two white rums - a El Dorado and a Neisson Blanc. Then we mixed a T-Punch witch the Neisson 50%. Than comes a Cadenhead´s Cuban 5y with 46%, follows with a 12y Peruan Cartavio 12y Solera in normal strength (40%). Had a break and a soup... But then it starts again with two Rhum Agricole: Mangoustan´s and St. Etienne Vieux. Amaizing! Following with Jamaica 14y from Cadenhead´s in 46%, then a Cadenhead 18y Enmore Demerara Rum with 63,3% and than my own bottling (with 57% ) both batches. The young people was very surprised how rum can taste.
and it was devinitly not a "common" beginners-tasting!
Looking forward to see you in my "holy rooms" ;-)

Once again, a big, big thank you for the wonderful time in london! (please say it also to Ian)

kind regards
Kristina from Berlin
