We recently picked up a bottle of Brinley Gold Vanilla and found it to be well made like the Mango version, with excellent vanilla taste.

I picked up a bottle of Pango this weekend that I found at a local store on 'inventory reduction'... I have not quite got my hands wrapped around it yet... It has a really good aroma that has me salivating for a taste, but the flavor does not match the aroma I don't think. It seems like a good quality product (as the Barbencourt pedigree) but I am not sure what to think of it - it does not taste at all 'artificial' as some flavored rums do, so that is a huge plus, just not sure what to do with it. I bet it would be great in a mixed drink punch sort of concoction. What do you all do with it?

I find it goes well with a OJ or Pineapple juice and splash of club soda to cut down on the sweetness. Also mixes well with a Mai Tai

While being a moderate fan of Brinley Gold Mango Rum, mostly due to the ridiculous price I have to pay for it, I have had a few special moments with Paradise Mango Rum Liqueur by Destileria Limituaco&Co Inc. I ran in to this one when I was in the Philippines. Very nice to sip with an ice cube. At US$ 8/70cl it was a steal! My companion found it a little to soft and sweet, and added some soda, and a dash of Tanduay Rum.

Sadly I haven't seen this product for sale in Europe

Ron Ricardo rums come from the Bahamas and are owned by Todhunter Mitchell who have recently moved thier operations from Freeport to Nassau, to take advantage of the facilities at Commonwealth Breweries.
Like Ed says, pretty much hard to find outside of the Bahamas.
My wife supposedly has a case of thier rums coming down on Bahamasair for me this week of all thier flavoured rums and the Gold, Dark and White. So looking foward to re-visiting all thier rums.

We were pleasantly surprised recently by some of the Ron Ricardo flavored rums at the New Orleans Tasting Competition, especially the banana, which has a unique mature full bodied flavor.

Unfotunately, the case of Ron Ricardo rum has "disappeared" on its short, direct flight from Nassau to Providenciales, not once but twice!!! I guess this rum is really popular with baggage handlers. The person who sent it is trying hard to get a refund, so she can send it by the regular ship delivery of Shell Gas. It is a shame, because I was hoping to order a case of Cuban rums for my next delivery if this was successful.eek.gif

What odds would you lay that it will arrive un-molested by a crew of thirsty sailors?

Sorry i didn't see this earlier...

i know exactly what you mean Pango is a surprise-- a gorgeous aged rhum, lightly infused with the flavor of real pineapple, and real mango-- you just expect it to be sweet, or tangy-- but instead it tastes balanced with ephemeral spice and yum yum fruits-- i like this stuff.

A great drink i make with this (that i have posted elsewhere on the forum) is:
Same Sex Marriage

1 Shot Pango (Spiced Rhum)
1 Shot Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
Shake Vigorously with Ice
Strain into a cocktail glass with 2 Brandied cherries in the bottom and a splash of 'the juice' from said cherries
Top up with Sparkling wine.

Sip and savor the innuendos!
