On my way back from Stella Maris Resort on the 'Out
Island' of Long Island in the Bahamas ( via free wifi on Airtran !!).
Had the opportunity to try multiple high end rums there and in a very
cost effective way: My package incl. 3 drinks/day-ANY 3 drinks.
A glass of Coke counted the same as the most pricey booze
on the top shelf ! Naturally, I 'went for the gusto' and had the best rums
available. Tried Cruzan Single Barrel, Matusalem 15yr (a shot of both of
these was a special counting as one drink !), Montecristo 12 yr and Rhum
Clement VSOP. I found the Monte and Matusalem very smooth and preferred
them over the Cruzan. The Clement I found to be a bit harsh on it's own
(similar to the La Favorite I bought for Mai Tai's on Ed's
So there it is-- had a great opportunity to try many brands in
a beautiful tropical setting, and at a good value !!
The only dissapointment was their lack of Havana Club
products to sample....
