OK, Daniel, here is the list as best as I remember:
Damoiseau Rhum Vieux 15
Montebello Hor's D' Age
Neisson Rhum XO
Clement Cuvee Charles
Clement 10 Hor's D'Age
Dillon Tres Rhum Vieux
La Favorite Blanc
Neisson ESB
Le Mauny 1995
Trios Rivieres 1996
Rhum Bologne with pepper spice.

I also had a few first kisses, Temptryst Lemonwood, Sugar Cane and others which were all excellent, and the Cherrywood XO. Yum!
Also tried Pritchards for the first time , and liked them both very much, especially the silver. Lots of flavor in a white rum.
A first kiss of Coruba, a good Jamaican rum, and I think this will be great with ginger ale.

"Rum Boulogne with pepper spice" I haven`t tried that rum yet, i was going to order it but then the seller said he wasn`t able to get it. Does it have a peppery flavor or is this a spiced rum you have?

I also have the Cherrwood XO, its a nice rum!

Coruba too.

Tiare, this was Rhum Bologne Blanc that was spiced with what we thought was chili pepper. It was spiced locally by someone in St Barth's where I purchased the bottle. It was a local artist who paints Carribean scenes on the bottle and fills it with rum. Very interesting flavor.

I cannot really in my mind get the flavor of an agricole spiced with chili..sounds quite interesting. Maybe i should use a little of my Dillon blanc, bottle in a small bottle and infuse with a little chili?

On the other hand, black pepper could be nice..

The Sugar Cane was matured with both roasted and raw sugarcane instead of oak. The cane itself was in the bottle.
The other Temptryst rums present may have been: Algerita Wood, Hickory, Coconut, Pink Lemon, Texas Live Oak, Cherrywood, and the Cherrywood XO. There was also some Temptryst Malt Whisky.

Ron Barcelo Imperial. My bottle's been sitting here for a couple of months, but I finally broke down and tried it this afternoon.
It has a lot of things I like about rum. The color, the the rich flavors; cocoa and coffee, and the smooth finish. It bears comparison to Zacapa 15, Botran Solera, and even a bit to Pampero (but a bit more laid back in the molasses department). Another delicious rum.

Yes, the Sugarcane rum was delicious. It is interesting to have the full taste of the cane. The cane looks very cool in the bottle. I also tasted Algerita, very different from any other wood, Pink lemon which was a true lemon rum, and the malt whiskey was rich and flavorful. The Cherrywood XO was the Cherrywood rum with an even richer flavor profile. In the future, you will find some excellent rums to have on your shelf from Temptryst.

Pyrat XO Reserve the other day. I found the flavor not so much orange as I would say apricot but with some hint of citrus in there as well. The nose is definitely strong on this one, filled up my office in no time. Was enjoyable straight and on ice. I know it is frowned upon by some, but I had to try it with a splash of coke, just to see.

Today I happened upon a bottle of Rogue Dark Rum. Read a few scattered thoughts on this rum on the net, but I had to pick up a bottle to try it myself. I love some of their beers, so I hope this does not let me down. I will report back when I get home and crack the bugger open.
