Primate,

If I look hard enough, I can probably find my Tequiza T-shirts I got when I waited tables at Applebees way back.

Why do crappy chains promote crappier products?

Viva, Tequiza! My sister in Sarasota would love to get her hands on a few cases. Her local shop quit the product and she is beside herself. Go figure....

Ok, pet peeve time- there are two Ts in Buffett.

A few PHs I know have tried the rums. The reaction was exactly what I expected- they were described as mediocre by people who aren't even rum aficionados.

They're serving them in the New Orleans Margaritaville now. I'll try them and report back.

Most of the time, chains are buying large quantities and are bought from the lowest bidder without a lot of regard to quality. Besides the buyers job is to save money not deliver the best product. Most of the smaller, higher end producers won't drop their prices to the level that they need to in order to get in the door.

The good news is that things are changing. The beer selection at many chain restaurants has improved and with it the cocktail list will follow. But don't worry, your rum bar won't see any serious competition for a long time.

We tried the Dark in New Orleans. It wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting, in fact, it was decent, if simple. Lots of molasses on the nose, but nothing else. No heat, no anise, no herbs, no vanilla, no oak. It was far, far smoother than I expected- really smooth, with little to no pepper or heat on the back. It definitely tasted like it had either molasses or caramel added to it- it had that slippery texture (but not like cachaca) I associate with flavored rum to it.

Appleton makes it.

If it's $15-20, it's not a screaming deal, but it would be as good or better than anything at the same price point on the grocery store shelf (and that's a key distinction- the grocery store shelf, not the liquor store shelf).

Default Margaritaville Silver Jamaican Rum

Does anyone know if this rum is really made by Appleton?
