New England - that's in the US

Where it all began in the colonies, rum is again becoming the spirit of choice. Have you seen anything on the shelves that shouldn't be missed by others.

Thanks Mike!

I was in Brockton yesterday and I stopped in to Blanchards by the Westgate Mall- they had W&N White Overproof! First time I've ever seen it in all the stores I've looked in! I think I paid $18 for the 750 ml. Now to make some falernum to the exact recipe!

I'm starting a new job next week, so I have this Friday off and me and the Mrs are heading to Yankee Spirits to stock up.... I saw that had rum cream last time, so surely getting some of that! I'll catalog what they have and post on here over the weeeknd....

I was in MA last weekend and stopped at Yankee Spirits in Sturbridge - they had Appleton V/X (750's) for $8.99 a bottle!

Holy crap - this rum is usually $14+!

I checked and it was not a typo - they had cases piled up with a big $8.99 sign on top.

I bought a case and kind of regret that I did not buy two.

Great rum selection there BTW.

Hi all,

The pyrat pistol seems to be all over the place - I'm surprised you have not seen it before - same with the W&N overproof - they have just about everywhere - Kappy's, all over in Cambridge (Supreme liq, Liq world, etc)

I stopped by Martignetti's on Soldiers Field Road in Brighton recently and they had a pretty impressive selection of rums! Many not widely available around here... Cubaney, etc

Also, not sure where you all are, but in Newburyport, New England Liquor world on somthing like that has the full Barcelo line-up: Anejo, Gran Anejo, and Imperial, as well as Depez Blue Cane Rhum!

still on the hunt!

Went to Kappy's in Malden today:
Rogue Spirirts Spiced 25.99
Matusalem Gran Res. 29.99 & Clasico 19.99
Goslings Family Old 66.99

Nothing spectacular as you can see above. I'm going to try Atlas on my way home from work tomorrow.

I was at Yankee Spirits in South Attleboro over the weekend and here's what they had on the shelves. Didn't get a lot of prices- just selection.

El Dorado gold/12 yr/15yr
Barbancourt, anejo
Flor de Cana dry/gold
Tommy Bahama ?!?!
Plantation GR
all the Appletons
Ron Mausalem GR/clasico platino
Ron Zacapa solena/GR
Zaya 12 yr
Ron Anejo aniversario
Brugal white/anejo
Don Q cristal/gold
Cruzan- all flavors/rum cream/blackstrap

And the usual assortment of Pussers, Bacardi, Capt Morgan, Malibu, Admiral Nelson, Sailor Jerry, and a lot of lower shelf, no name stuff. A good selection for me, as we're just discovering the better rums! So- any recommendations from this list??


Also a decent Cachaca selection

Da Roca
Velho Barreiro
Ilha Grande
Coluninha
Agua Luca
Dona Beja
Rochina
Pitu
Pirassununga
Leblon

Anyone recommend anything on this list? We LOVE the Leblon, but we've been drinking so much of it so fast, the $27 a bottle price is starting to pinch a bit!

Thanks!

I like the Blackstrap (tastes like molasses), the ED 12, ED 15, and the Matusalem GR myself. Out of the above, the ED 12 im my favorite. But thats just me

Ah, Blackstrap......where have you been all my life!

Since we discovered it a few weeks ago, we've been drinking it like it's going out of style! We even made some cinnimon rolls and my wife usually just makes a glaze from warm water and confectioners sugar. This time we added a little Blackstrap to the glaze.... YUM!!!!!

Seems like a decent selection - about the status quo for around here with the exception of the El Dorado's - those are pretty rare in MA! Those two are worth getting for sure! Great rums and each quite different from the other - a real treat!

I had a company event at Rose Wharf yesterday afternoon and was thinking of trying to get to Federal Wine afterwards to report on the offerings, but didn't make it as it ran late and had to get home to the kids' events... darn! Anybody been by recently?

Oh, btw... was the Appleton V/X on sale at the Att location for 8.99 as LM saw in Sturbridge? That's a hell of a deal!!!

Kappys in Medford has Lemon Hart (14.99) Mt. Gay Special Reserve (24.99?)
Also, they have 3-4 Plantation Rums, I got a bottle of the Plantation Barbados Grand Reserve from there. Wow! That is some really great rum. I got a 1.5L for 31.99, I think it was well worth the price.

Cirace V & Sons Liquor, downtown Boston has Lemon Hart(17.99) & Lemon Hart 151 (24.99)
