A growing number of bars appreciate rum, and and we appreciate them.

More info on the Tommy Gold, it is a blend of 4-6 year old rums, as the oldest rums in their warehouse is 6 years old. There are plans to release a further aged rum in the coming two years, once their inventory contains 8 year old barrels.

Going back to Rum Jungle, I spoke with some great rum fans from New York last week that spoke great things about Rum Jungle, so long as you are there before 9pm. You can get good attention and try some great rums before it turns into a nightclub atmosphere.

Key point that can't be stressed enough! I'll be there April 26th to May 1st.
If anyone else is going to be in Vegas that week, let's meet up.

Before 9pm is when you'd find me there. Forget the frustrations after 10pm, go over to New York New York and enjoy the entertainment, and good dark beer at Nine Fine Irishmen.

Just returned from my trip to Vegas. Based on all of the negative vibes and the distance from where I was staying (Mirage) to Mandalay Bay, I did not make it to RumJungle.

The bars and restaurants I went to were mostly disappointing rumwise; Bacardi, Captain, Appleton VX, and 10 Cane were the typical selections. Lots of rainbow colored vodkas though.

One highly recommended exception was Bouchon, a lively French bistro on the 10th floor of the Venetian. They had a list of about a dozen respectable rums, including Montecristo 12, Barbancourt 8 and 15, and Pyrat Cask. Vegas prices are high though, $14 for the B8, $18 for the B15, and $40 for the PC. Pours were decent, about 2 oz.

I went for the B15 as I had never had it before. Very nice, smooth and balanced. The food was quite good, too.

Spago in the Venetian shopping mall served the Montecristo 12 also, but not much else of interest rumwise.

Sounds like a pretty good price for Pyrat Cask, Id jump on it! Strange though that the Barbancourt 5* is nearly the same price as the Reserve. The retail price is nearly double!

That's because the drinks in Vegas' high end bars and restaurants START at about $12 and go up from there. So the quality drinks are actually a better deal than the bottom shelf.

Boy, would I ever have the "El Superpresidente"
The Apelton 21 is on my shelf, but for the Pyrat Cask & Mt Gay it sees like a reasonable deal!

Perhaps I will get the chance in early september, while visiting NJ.

Went to Rum Jungle last night. Of the 3 rum I requested from their rum list. they only had one. That one was Classic Moneymusk Jamaican 8 Yr., distilled in '91. I had also requested Classic Port Morant Guyana and another from the "Classic" trademark, "Venetian?".

These folks really need to rework their rum list as well as add more to what they have on hand.

Rum Jungle was surely a hoppin' place back in the day, but they have really been slipping lately. They have seriously downsized the menu and it always seems to be out of date. It's a shame because its a great looking place that once had an inspiring selection of great rums. I hope they get it together.

Several of the people that used to work at Rum Jungle "when it was cool" have moved on to work at Frankie's Tiki Room. Spent a few hours there with Paul Clarke on Saturday night. They have a pretty good selection and seem committed to making good drinks. I highly recommend it.
