Don't give up on ALL flavored rums! As a contrast to the super sweet coconut rums you just tasted there is a bottle of Temptryst Toasted Coconut Rum on its way to you.

I look forward to an honest critique. Even though we only scored a bronze in the competition I still believe that this is a vastly superior product.

I sampled the Angostura 1824 and 1919 tonight.

In a nutshell, the 1824 is full of flavors, all of them bold and grabbing your attention one at a time. The complexity is very nice, but the lack of balance is not. Overall, it's not very balanced, and is less smooth than expected for a 12-year-old.

The 1919 is rich, creamy, and has nice balanced flavors - just not enough of a flavor as it's a little bland. Fine and smooth, it's quite sippable, but perhaps it's not distinct enough to be sipped too often.

Both are good, but both miss the mark by a little bit.

Default 3 Cachaзas

Last night I sampled 3 cachaзas - Beleza Pura, Fazenda Mae De Ouro, and Leblon.

The Beleza is a little sweet and has some bold fruity tastes, perhaps too bold, and a long slow burn that isn't conducive to sipping. It would take the right cocktail to make this worthwhile.

The Fazenda was much milder in taste, more refined and subtler, but still a little sweet and somewhat fruity. It's very sippable, and it makes me yearn for their 5-year-old which should be available soon. For sipping, this is easily the winner.

The Leblon was somewhat less tasty than both of the above, with a burn similar to the Beleza. Not worthwhile, IMHO.
